Data Backup & Recovery Services for Houston Companies
In our digitalized world, any business can have serious implications due to data loss. Nonetheless, a surprising number of businesses do not have a disaster recovery plan in place. As a matter of fact, one third of small and medium-sized businesses do not have Business Continuity plan in place for responding to data breaches and cyber-attacks. This is in spite that 60 percent of these same businesses have experienced a loss or theft of sensitive data in the previous 12 months. Most of this data loss leads to a loss in revenue, loss of productivity, and temporary closure of the business.

Frequently Asked Questions
Read the most frequently asked questions people often ask about data backup and recovery solutions
What is data backup and disaster recovery, and who is it for?
Data backup and disaster recovery services are for every company that uses technology, however since 39% of small and medium-sized businesses do not have a recovery plan in place, these businesses stand to benefit the most from data backup and disaster recovery service. Data backup is the result of copying or archiving files and folders to be able to restore them in case of data loss. Events that may lead to data loss include floods, earthquakes, human error, a device failure, or a cyberattack. Disaster Recovery is a form of security planning that allows a business to maintain or recover infrastructure and systems following a disaster. It involves a set of policies and procedures to follow, allowing businesses to reduce the overall downtime and save time, money, and customer trust.
What are the risk/downsides of not having data backup and disaster recovery plan and why companies need it?
Research shows the lack of preparedness could be extremely costly to a business and considered highly stressful when scrambling to return their systems back to normal after an attack. An hour of downtime costs an average of $8,000 for a small company, $74,000 for a medium company, and $700,000 for a large enterprise. It is vital to have an effective disaster recovery plan in place because it allows a business to continue normal operations as quickly as possible. Aside from suffering the costs of downtime, companies are having to pay larger ransoms than ever before. The average Q4 2019 ransomware payment was $84,116, more than double that of the previous quarter ($41,198). A Coveware study found in Q4 2019, 97% of data encrypted by ransomware was successfully decrypted after paying the ransom. Even after paying the ransom and decrypting all the files, there is nothing to stop the criminals from maintaining copies. Information could be stored and used in subsequent crimes, such as fraud or spear-phishing attempts. With proper disaster recovery planning, a business should be able to quickly recover and resume operations with minimum downtime at a minimum cost.
What are the advantages of outsourcing the data backup and disaster recovery service as opposed to keeping it in-house?
For increased productivity in small to medium-size businesses where technicians are performing multiple roles, outsourcing data backup and disaster recovery to a quality service provider solves the problem of finding the right skilled worker that fits your company requirements and provides a larger knowledge pool of information. Outsourcing also saves you money in recruitment agency fees, employer fees, and time spent looking for suitable candidates.
It is prevalent that companies with in-house IT departments have current IT needs met but rarely factor in business growth requiring new servers, software, storage devices, and networks. Outsourcing your Data Backup and Disaster Recovery to a quality service provider who already has the necessary data centers and resources in place to handle expansion, means you can focus on running and growing your business.
When it comes to IT budgeting, keeping things in-house can look appealing. Nonetheless, compare how much each option will ultimately cost the business in the long run. Companies that form an incident response team can reduce the average cost of a breach by $360,000. Lack of preparedness could potentially cost an average of $3.92 million, with healthcare being the costliest industry. 92% of outsourced Disaster Recovery resulted in costs that were either identical or lower than in-house efforts due to initial investment by a provider in hardware, infrastructure management, data centers, and licensing fees.
