Natural disasters, data center outages and pandemics – these are unfortunate words that have been popping up in the media way too often in the past. Recently, hurricane “Irene” hit the US East-Coast. A state of emergency prevailed across the entire coastal area, many people were evacuated. For hours, public life at Washington stopped and there was no train or bus service in New York; air travel also came to a standstill, as many flights were cancelled. In this case the question arises: How to maintain business continuity if one cannot get to the company or your home office is flooded or must be evacuated?
Many outside influences can negatively impact business processes and thus interrupt a company's business continuity. These outside influences cannot, unfortunately, be controlled or foreseen by any company. The best solution is to be prepared for any disaster or data center outage.
With a disaster recovery plan in place, organizations can ensure business continuity even in emergency situations. The capability to leverage remote data centers and co-location facilities allows organizations to safeguard their technology resources and spread them across multiple locations, ensuring business continuity and mitigating the risk of an outage. For example, important e-mails can be answered remotely via an Internet browser and deadlines can still be met.
By leveraging secure remote access solutions, enterprises are also better equipped to recover from all types of disasters and emergencies.
The only way to be sure that your data is safe, is by deploying a remote access solution before disaster strikes; only then can the full benefits of secure, smooth and uninterrupted business continuity be expected.
