CyberlinkASP provides expert data storage solutions that help organizations safeguard their critical information from loss or corruption. Our comprehensive backup strategies provide complete protection, from storage to recovery.
Expert Data Storage and Recovery
Keeping data safe and secure is one of the most important tasks facing any organization. For companies in highly regulated industries, it’s critical. A well-conceived backup plan can protect data from damage or loss, while helping businesses remain compliant with the growing mass of rules and regulations governing data protection.
Unfortunately, many organizations fall short of the ideal. Instead of developing and implementing data backup best practices, they rely on ad hoc fixes or poorly conceived strategies. To help companies maintain the highest level of data security, CyberlinkASP provides comprehensive data protection strategies that emphasize both backup and recovery.
Types of Data Loss
Depending on the type of device and the underlying problem, data loss can range in severity from catastrophic damage to minor leaks. Loss can result from a number of causes, including:
- Hardware damage
- Equipment theft
- Malware infections
Data Backup Best Practices
A reliable backup strategy will take every possible scenario into account. Whether data corruption occurs as a result of accidental misuse (such as dropping a cellphone in water), or intentional abuse (such as a cyberattack designed to hold critical data for ransom), data backup best practices require a multi-faceted approach.
While no strategy is 100 percent foolproof, there is an assortment of data storage solutions that prove highly effective. To prepare for every possible contingency, CyberlinkASP takes a three-pronged approach to data security that focuses on:
A comprehensive protection plan employs a number of backup systems to ensure data is safe even if the primary storage system fails. In fact, no backup strategy is complete without a “backup of the backup.” Of course, the more backups, the more complicated the procedure. Only by consulting your long-term needs can you determine the optimal level of protection for your organization.
With volumes of data increasing at a nearly exponential rate, organizations need to maintain adequate storage capacity. These days, businesses must be prepared to store vast amounts of data.
Offsite storage is also becoming increasingly critical. That’s because both natural and man-made disasters pose a formidable threat to the integrity of IT systems. If a disaster or business interruption does occur in your geographical area, offsite storage ensures that no data is permanently lost.
Backing up and storing data is only part of the picture—the first step in a larger process that leads to recovery, which is the end goal of every data protection strategy. An organization can backup vast quantities of data, but it means little if IT specialists are unable to access the information after an incident. That’s why it’s critical to test the recovery process multiple times before anything goes wrong.
Understanding Needs and Requirements
Many organizations error in not clearly defining their needs from the outset. To avoid that mistake, you should determine what tools are appropriate for your organization and how much backup is optimal given your current and anticipated situation.
For some industries, regulations clearly specify the type and manner of backup and storage needed. Others are left to their own devices. Since the burden of creating a viable backup system can be complicated and overwhelming, CyberlinkASP offers professional IT services suited to your organization’s specific needs.
