Cloud Backup and Disaster Recovery

Cloud encryption, storage, and secure access controls, to help protect your data from cyber threats.

A Backup and Disaster Recovery (BDR) service is a solution that helps organizations protect their data and systems from loss or damage due to unexpected events such as natural disasters, hardware failures, cyber-attacks, or human error. The main objective of a BDR service is to minimize downtime and data loss in the event of a disaster and to ensure that critical systems and data can be quickly restored to full functionality.

Bulletproof your data protection with the highest industry standards in an all-in-one business cloud solution.

Data Backup

The first step in a BDR service is to regularly back up critical data and systems. This typically involves copying important data and system configurations to secure, offsite servers. The backups are usually performed automatically, using specialized software that runs on a schedule.

Data Encryption

To protect the backup data from unauthorized access, most BDR services use encryption. The data is encrypted before it is transferred to the backup servers, and it remains encrypted while it is stored. This helps ensure that the data is protected from cyber threats, even if the backup servers are compromised.

Disaster Recovery Planning

Once the data is backed up, the next step is to create a disaster recovery plan. This plan outlines the steps that will be taken in the event of a disaster, such as a fire, flood, or cyber-attack, to restore the data and systems to full functionality. The disaster recovery plan should be tested regularly to ensure that it works as intended.

Data Restoration

In the event of a disaster, the BDR service provider can quickly restore the backed-up data and systems to minimize downtime and data loss. This usually involves copying the backed-up data and systems to new hardware and then configuring the hardware to match the original systems. The restored systems should be functional within a few hours, depending on the size and complexity of the data.

Ongoing Monitoring and Maintenance

Finally, a BDR service typically includes ongoing monitoring and maintenance. This includes regularly monitoring the backup servers and systems to ensure that they are functioning optimally and fixing any issues that arise. The service provider may also perform regular software updates and other maintenance tasks to ensure that the systems are always secure and up-to-date.
