Backup & Recovery

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

Backup & Recovery

Our team works to eliminate downtime. We ensure you are safe in the knowledge that your data is protected and quick to recover.

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

Cyber threats present such a serious risk to your business. You may also want to add to our standard support platform with extra 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. This may be 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. This is helpful if you need to restore a document, but perhaps not so effective if your complete IT system is undermined.

Disaster Recovery

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

If your infrastructure is out of action, and your business relies solely on file level backups, you would need a new server. This 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 to swiftly recover lost files, software and functionality. This is 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). This is 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. We address 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. This gives you the assurance of almost uninterrupted access to data, even in the event of complete system failure.
