Cyber Attacks and Natural Disasters are Affecting More Businesses Each Year Causing Data Loss and Downtime

Nothing ages an IT Manager faster than the thought of losing company data because of a server failure. Onsite storage systems are prone to attack and costly to manage. Hardware failure is the leading cause of unplanned downtime, which – depending on your business size – can cost between $926 to $17244 per minute. Only 6% of companies survive for more than two years after experiencing significant data loss – and that’s just hardware. Data loss due to attacks on company systems by malicious actors has only increased. Some of America’s most important companies, including Marriott and Yahoo, have fallen victim to attacks that have exposed millions of customer records and company data, causing millions of dollars in damages and loss of corporate reputation.

Top Causes of Downtime for Small to Mid-Size Businesses

  • Aging Equipment Failure
  • Virus Attacks
  • UPS Battery Failures
  • Human Error
  • Natural Disaster

 

How Cloud-based Storage Technology Can Benefit Your Bottom Line

Cloud-based Storage systems move your on-site storage problem to the cloud where you no longer have to worry about hardware and maintenance costs. You pay only for services that you use, and you can scale up or down as your needs dictate as your company is protected from malware and virus attacks. The technology used in storage services has been dropping in price during the last few years, allowing cost savings to be passed to the customer.
