Why Is Business Continuity Critical?

Protect your business by implementing a business continuity strategy that puts the necessary plan and technology in place to reduce downtime in the event a disaster strikes.

Does all that equate to loss of revenue and productivity?

Frequently Asked Questions:

What is a Business Continuity Plan?

A business continuity plan puts the necessary processes and technology in place to reduce downtime in the event of a hard drive crash, flood, lightning strike, theft, or a lockdown. A critical part of that disaster recovery plan is to ensure that users can access critical functions to remain productive while keeping the necessary level of security and control over user access to corporate resources. If reducing hours of stoppage to minutes of downtime matter to your critical business functions, then business continuity service must be made a part of normal operations.

What is Ransomware?

Ransomware is a type of cyber piracy that threatens to publish the victim's data or perpetually block access to it unless a ransom is paid. Advanced malware uses a technique called crypto viral extortion which is beyond the skill of the average IT professional. In a sophisticated crypto viral attack, payment for the decryption key is demanded in cryptocurrencies such as pay SafeCard or Bitcoin to make tracing perpetrators nearly impossible.

What is a rootkit?

Per Wikipedia, "A rootkit is a collection of computer software, typically malicious, designed to enable access to a computer or an area of its software that is not otherwise allowed to an unauthorized user, often masking its existence or the existence of other software. "Rootkit" is usually malware.

What is a Helpdesk?

A help desk is a customer service resource intended to support troubleshooting problems or supply guidance about products such as computers, appliances, or software.

Network Operations Center (NOC)

Wikipedia defines a network operations center (NOC, pronounced like the word knock) as "one or more locations from which network monitoring, control, and management, is exercised over a computer, telecommunication or satellite network.

What is the difference between a NOC and Helpdesk?

In general, helpdesks tend to be broader in scope, less technical in capabilities, end user focused and tend to be reactive. By comparison, NOCs are proactive, supporting overall system integrity as well as individual user's access or functionality of such systems. A NOC anticipates issues and inserts the proper safeguards to prevent them. A NOC engineer deals with things such as DDoS Attacks, power outages, network failures, and routing black holes. Additionally, providing remote support, setting up firewalls, rack installation, running cables, ensuring communication and overall network stability, throughput and functionality are among other duties. NOCs typically provide 24/7 support and engineers are on call per a work rotation across the staff. Whether a hybrid cloud or cloud backup, a disaster recovery solution typically includes a recovery point objective to have sites back up and business capability restored after some type of fail over.

The very quick prompt response time and total handling of any issues allowing me to focus on what I do and not computer issues For example On about December 1, 2014 a virus was disabling one of the computers in my office, We called A2Z Business IT. They were able to locate and quarantine the problem remotely because of software monitoring that was previously installed allowing them to fix the problem from off site. This eliminated any issue without scheduling an appointment. This has been a tremendous time saver for me.
