Remote Backup & Disaster Recovery

Sure, you’ve got a data backup solution…right?

But does it work?

When was the last time you checked?

Do you have a repeatable process for recovering both your data and your business should the unthinkable happen?

If you are like most of our clients, you might be sheepishly looking away from the monitor. Nobody wants to acknowledge that they may have a critical gap in their business operations — especially not when it’s in an area that everyone knows is critical.

Therein lies the problem. Knowing what you need when it comes to data backup and business continuity isn’t that simple if you are not an IT ninja. When was the last time you thought about recovery time or recovery point objectives?

Let us help with the details. We can set your business up with the appropriate level of both data backup and business continuity plans that are right for your business, no matter what size or industry. We have solutions that span a wide range of situations and scenarios.

Secure Backups for Small Business

If your small or medium-sized business suffers a catastrophic data loss, it almost certainly will fail. It’s that simple.

Catastrophic data loss is one of the most detrimental events that can happen to a small- or medium-sized business (SMB). According to the The Underwriting Guide for Insurers, only six percent of mid-size companies that suffer catastrophic data loss ever recover. Yes, you read that correctly. Only six percent. 43% never reopen, and 51% close within two years of the disaster.

Unfortunately, data loss is a relatively common occurrence. Hard drives die, and even automated backups sometimes fail to archive every single file correctly. Data loss becomes catastrophic when a sizeable or vital set of data becomes unrecoverable.

Our Remote backup systems can prevent catastrophic data loss and could potentially save your company.

CMIT Guardian offers a full suite of disaster recovery tools, all of which are customizable to suit the needs of your small business:

  • Disaster recovery planning
  • Secure remote backup
  • Email archiving
  • Monitoring software

Guardian is more than just a remote backup system—it’s a business continuity plan designed to keep your company open and operational after a data disaster.

Guardian delivers:

Peace of mind. All data is secured with 128-bit encryption during transfer and stored securely offsite. Customers can use a provided encryption key or manage their own private key to encrypt data. Guardian automatically backs up new and changed files, so even in the event of disruption or disaster you can recover virtually all of your most recent data.

Disaster recovery, tailored to small business. You don’t need an enterprise-level solution with multiple redundant data centers, but you do need redundancy. Guardian automatically backs up to offsite storage, and can run a virtual image of your environment if any of your existing servers fail. And, whereas other business continuity solutions might require a complete rebuild and reinstallation of key databases and applications, taking up to a week or more, Guardian’s storage and virtualization capabilities allow you to perform a full restore in less than 48 hours.  Click Here to Watch a Technical Demonstration of our Disaster Recovery

Increased productivity. Guardian protects against spam, delivers email archiving and provides continuous online access to email in the event of hardware outage, so users stay in touch and productive.

CMIT Guardian ensures that will never happen with data disaster recovery planning, secure remote backup, email archiving, and monitoring software. Guardian also makes an automatic on-site backup and has the ability to use that backup as the live environment if a crash occurs. We secure all data with 128-bit encryption during transfer and test the backups to ensure we can recover. Guardian backs up new and updated files, guaranteeing full recovery in less than 48 hours. We help you define the backup process so your backup protects not only your data, but all of your business systems.

Guardian is available in three different plans, which can be customized to meet your business and your budget.
