Backup & Security: We store your critical data safely, help protect you from viruses and identify risks

Backup and Disaster Recovery of Data Crucial to Your Business

With so much critical data being stored on computers and servers, the backing up of data is now an essential part of business activity. Many businesses rely on out-of-date, time-consuming and unsecure business practices – without realising the costs they could incur as a result. Or you may have a backup solution, but is anyone testing it for you? Ensuring your network is safe and secure is our top priority. We will:

    »   Protect you from equipment failure and human error. AK Associates’s local and hosted backup solution provides rapid data recovery for lost files, as well as disaster protection - should the unimaginable happen

    »   Manage and regularly test your backups and security, so that when you need to recover files or even your system, you can be confident all the data’s there. We have developed best practice IT procedures. We benchmark our clients against these and advise on critical procedures that should be followed. Our procedures for backup and security include:

        •  Password policies
        •  Server backup and recovery

    »   Ensure a disaster recovery plan, to prevent your service and products being impacted. It’s not just about disasters, but managing service interruptions too. With business’ relying so heavily on technology and stored data, a ‘disaster recovery (DR) plan’ is as important as a business or marketing plan. They don’t have to be highly technical or onerous, just a reasonable understanding of what the risks are and a managed response that is recorded, so that if things go wrong, everyone knows what to do and who to call. Our experienced team can help you identify the risks and lead you through the process to protecting your future.
