Why BDR is One of the Most Important Solutions Your Business Can Have

Why BDR is One of the Most Important Solutions Your Business Can Have

Business can get messy, particularly when variables outside your control are involved, which could spell doom for your organization. We’re talking, of course, about instances where your organization might be under a particularly large threat—instances where your data is at risk, which could jeopardize your future. Thankfully, there are options to mitigate this risk.

You Cannot Control Natural Disasters, but You Can Control These Factors

The big consideration for protecting against data loss in an uncontrollable disaster is to think ahead. You must implement proactive measures if you want to protect your data as it needs to be. First, let’s cover what constitutes a data loss incident and what some of the most popular reasons for experiencing them are. Then, we’ll dive into the popular ways you can mitigate the risk.

Common Data Loss Incident Occurrences

Here are some of the common situations that could lead to data loss for your typical business:

  • Natural disasters, which include hurricanes, electrical storms, tornadoes, winter weather, floods, and fires.
  • Data loss caused by user error, such as improper configuration of systems or a failure to perform duties as needed.
  • Cybersecurity incidents that lead to data compromisation, corruption, or theft.

Implementing Backup and Disaster Recovery

The one big thing that the above have in common is that they immediately threaten your data infrastructure. When your data is unavailable due to any of the above, you need to have data backup and disaster recovery systems in place to keep downtime and data loss to a minimum. Typically, a BDR solution will work by backing up your data to multiple secure locations off-site if your infrastructure is damaged. It can then restore your data to any device designated to get operations back in order.

Securing Your Infrastructure

Of course, natural disasters are far from the only danger to your business’ data infrastructure. Cyberthreats and hackers exclusively target your technological assets in hopes of either disrupting your business operations or profiting from your data. One of the most dangerous threats out there, ransomware, is so wicked in its deployment that often the only feasible way to get your data back is to restore a recent backup.

We always recommend that businesses protect their infrastructures with both comprehensive security measures and adequate data backup and disaster recovery methods. Preferred can help your organization overcome the many challenges of data loss prevention, backup, and disaster recovery. To learn more about our solutions, call us at 708-781-7110 today.
