Having files and systems protected on a day-to-day basis is critical to the business continuity plan. After all, without data, the company loses its story and has no chance of surviving in the corporate world.
The point is, it is not enough just to implement a backup policy in your company. It must go beyond that. More than generating just copies of files and systems you need to have a data recovery plan that is smart.
Data recovery: what is intelligent backup?
To be efficient, the backup must be controlled automatically, covering gaps that traditional operations cannot cover. In addition, routine monitoring must be performed automatically, including the entire virtual environment, preventing a newly created server from being excluded from the backup policy.
According to a survey released by the Information Technology Board, linked to the Executive Secretary of the Ministry of Education, about 70% of Brazilian companies that lost all their data ended their activities up to eighteen months after the event.
Ignoring the implementation of an intelligent backup management process is risking everything that is relevant to the business and jeopardizing the reputation of IT and the company.
Four risks your company may be in for not having intelligent backup policy
1# Losing data when facing cyber disaster or attacks
Having a safe copy of your files is having control of information security. Incidents can occur at any time. Reasons for such unforeseen events range from fire, flood, employee mistake erasing or replacing important files, and even virus attacks and hardware malfunction. Therefore, it is critical to create policy to recover data.
2# Wasting time and resource with manual tasks
If your IT area has a manual backup management policy, you are probably wasting your time. Nowadays, there are backup tools that allow fully automated configuration of data recovery routines. In this way, it is possible to focus efforts on strategic projects, certain that the information is protected.
3# Having a faulty data recovery process
In addition, when adopting a manual backup management process it is normal to see mistakes. After all, people and human failures can occur any time.
4# Not finding information
Another very common situation when there isn’t intelligent backup management, is the trouble of locating the data and systems within the corporation. The best way is always to centralize the information in one place rather than letting the data spread across several computers or servers.
