December 31, 2014
Winter has officially begun, and the next few months could create both opportunities and challenges for many managed service providers (MSPs).
While winter can bring snow, sleet and other inclement weather, MSPs can provide data backup and disaster recovery (BDR) solutions to help businesses safeguard data and ensure that companies can access this information in any conditions.
And with December quickly drawing to a close, and winter weather on the horizon in cities and towns across the country, now is the perfect time to review this month’s top BDR lessons for MSPs.
Here are some of this month’s top BDR lessons:
Service providers must be prepared to protect customer data no matter where it lives. Also, MSPs’ data protection plans must be as fluid as the information flowing in and out of the companies that rely on them, according to data BDR software company Datto.
MSPs that offer data BDR solutions can protect critical business information and make it easier for companies to avoid data loss and downtime. And in many cases, service providers that deliver data BDR solutions can even save Christmas for their customers.
Service providers can offer data BDR and business continuity solutions to help customers avoid downtime, save money and prepare for a white Christmas.
The financial services sector is highly regulated, which can make it difficult for many financial services companies to manage their sensitive information. However, MSPs can help banks, brokerage firms, lenders and other financial services businesses protect their data and comply with federal regulations.
Successful backup is the foundation of disaster recovery and business continuity – without it, recovery and continuity cannot exist. Datto recently pointed out that most companies are aware that they need some way to protect their data, and MSPs must take the necessary steps to alleviate customers’ data BDR and business continuity concerns.
