When it comes to data security, businesses can never be too careful. While the wide array of software and tools available have vastly improved the efficiency of modern business operations, the changes that have come with remote work and file sharing have also significantly increased digital attack surfaces. Organizations now face more threats than ever before – from cyberattacks and unplanned outages, to censorship and cancel culture… which raises the question: in the face of such disasters, how quickly can your security team respond? Time is money, and most companies can’t afford to lose either in order to meet their bottom line. That’s why it’s vital to have a backup plan in place to ensure your company never misses a beat, and why so many CISOs have opted to utilize a DRaaS solution to bolster their security.
DRaaS: What it is, and why you need it
DRaaS, aka “Disaster Recovery as a Service” is one of many backup solutions often provided by cloud storage vendors, in which the vendor will host copies of an organization’s essential data on remote servers. That way, if an organization’s primary computer systems unexpectedly shut down, those systems will then “fail over” (ie: automatically transfer operations) to the vendor’s recovery systems, thereby ensuring continuous operations and a smooth system recovery following the outage. Not only is it typically cost-effective to outsource your data storage for disaster recovery, but by partnering with a DRaaS vendor, you’ll also receive additional IT support during times of disaster, allowing your IT teams to focus on any immediate onsite support needs.
