Disaster Recovery Solutions
Natural disasters, a mistake from one of your staff, or a cyber attack could cause you to suddenly and unexpectedly lose your data or applications. A Ponemon Institute report on the state of cybersecurity found that 39% of small and mid-sized businesses do not have an incident response strategy for sudden data loss or unexpected downtime. Do not be caught unprepared. A vCIO can help you devise a disaster recovery plan to back up your servers’ data at a remote location. The vCIO also outlines the steps you should take to bring your systems back up as quickly as possible, minimizing service disruption. The plan includes:
- Determining mission-critical data and applications
- Cloud data backup of critical data and applications
- Frequent failover testing
Network and Data Security Services
Malicious network intrusions pose a threat to businesses of all types and sizes. Still, they can be incredibly costly to businesses, with a security survey indicating that 60% of small businesses do not survive significant cyberattacks. Cybersecurity is a crucial consideration for any company, and the vCIO ensures that the security measures you put in place are reliable and stable. With a virtual CIO, you rest assured of expert-level support, guidance, and recommendations on the following from an experienced IT expert:
- Vulnerability testing
- Email and network security
- Data backup services
- Wireless network security
Adoption of New Technologies
With the pressures placed on you by your customers’ needs and your busy schedule fulfilling your core duties, you probably don’t have the time needed to keep up with all the emerging technologies available. Your vCIO helps you plan for upgrades and digital transformations by continually monitoring the technology field to identify any new tools that you can use to lower your operational costs and boost productivity. Because the consultant takes time to understand your existing systems and their shortcomings fully, they can help you quickly adopt new solutions. Our vCIO is particularly adept at recommending the latest:
- File sharing solutions
- Cloud-based productivity applications
- Hosted email services
- CRM solutions
- Hosted IP telephony solutions
