What is Cyber-Resilience? How are backups key?

Almost every organization relies on I.T. infrastructure to function – and that infrastructure can be damaged or sabotaged by:

  • hacking, ransomware and other forms of cyber attack
  • physical destruction – fire, flood, earthquake
  • theft
  • hardware failures
  • user deletions – accidentally or intentionally.
In all cases, the surest path to resilience is the right backup strategy.
“The right backup gives you a successful and predictable recovery.”

the ability to recover from an adverse event.

What makes the right Windows Server Backup Software?

For Windows Servers, the availability of the server and the applications and data on it are solely your responsibility. Therefore, the right backup and recovery software must provide comprehensive backup and recovery options.

Backup Capabilities

  • Full server backups, including (where applicable) Active Directory, Hyper-V, Exchange Server, SQL Server.
  • File based backups with version history.
  • Back up to different destinations: USB HDD, NAS, Cloud storage, RDX.

  • Encryption for sensitive backup data to secure against data breach.
  • You control where your data is, 100% of the time.
