If your business lost its data, would it survive?

If your business lost its data, would it survive? Odds are, no.

Research tells the story: 60 percent of small businesses that lose data in an Information Technology (IT) disaster do not survive. Even a short-term IT setback can cause permanent damage: Most businesses can tolerate less than 24 hours of technology downtime before operations also suffer.

You've insured your people, places and products: What about your data? Computer failures, viruses, encryption breaches, accidents and natural disasters all threaten business data-and business survival. That's why many small business owners use a managed services firm to protect their business data and recover from IT failures with very little downtime.
