Backup & Recovery

Business continuity is directly related to the productivity of your organisation. This is why we ensure our platform includes routine system backups and disaster recover monitoring.

Backup & Recovery

We work to eliminate downtime and ensure you are safe in the knowledge that your data is protected and quickly recoverable.

Malware is ever-evolving and becoming more complex and any one of these new strains could exploit vulnerabilities in your IT systems.

With cyber threats now presenting such a serious risk, you might also look to develop our standard support platform with additional security solutions from some of our industry-leading partners.


Ensuring your information is backed-up is the primary level of data protection. You need to be able to quickly and easily recover documents that are lost through human error or system failures. We ensure data is routinely backed-up and processes are regularly tested to keep your data safe.

A basic backup would make a copy of your data and store it to another device or location – helpful if you need to restore a document but perhaps not so effective if your complete IT system is undermined.

Disaster Recovery

When the operation of your entire business is compromised, either through a system or natural disaster, human error or malicious activity, you need to be able to respond immediately.

If your infrastructure is out of action, and your business relies solely on file level backups, you would require a new server, in addition to the re-installation of your settings and preferences. To re-configure an entire network takes time – time that could be spent operating effectively again.

Upgrading your backup to a disaster recovery plan gives you a chance of being able to swiftly recover lost files, software and functionality without impacting productivity – delivering complete business continuity.

We understand the value of business continuity and the ability to function, not just recover, from a disaster. This is why we work with you to create a disaster recovery plan that removes downtime.

Together, we consider your Recovery Time Objective (RTO), a target time to restore files, and your Recovery Point Objective (RPO), the maximum time by which files must be recovered to ensure the continuation of normal operations. By deciding on the minimum frequency with which backups must be made we create a complete disaster recovery strategy, addressing which of your systems are business critical and an order of recovery.

Our disaster recovery solutions include virtual servers that store and backup data offsite, giving you the assurance of almost uninterrupted access to data, even in the event of complete system failure.
