Disaster Recovery- Internet Protection Service is Your Key to Preparedness

With decades of experience to learn from, enterprise businesses have gotten better at preparing for floods, tornados, earthquakes, and a host of other disasters. In fact, you likely have a plan in place for events such as these that involves plywood, sandbags, firewalls, and other physical deterrents.


But what about your digital infrastructure, Wi-Fi, and network? Will it be ready when the next natural disaster strikes—or is it an Achilles heel just waiting to be compromised, bringing your recovery efforts, or even your business, to a halt?


In a Wi-Fi-dependent era, these are the types of questions that keep enterprise business owners up at night—or, at a minimum, their Chief Information Officers. In this blog, we look at the issue and a potential solution.


Compounding Losses

A disaster resulting in catastrophic data loss can profoundly impact your business. According to the LinkedIn blog Can Your Network Survive a Network Catastrophe? “it’s estimated that 90% of businesses whose data is lost or corrupted in a power failure, flood, fire, or other disasters will never recover.” That’s right—a staggering nine out of ten eventually fail.


Despite this bleak statistic, there are ways to give your business a leg up when it comes to all things digital—and take disaster preparedness to a whole new dimension.


Internet Protection Service

Wired Wi-Fi systems are just part of the equation when it comes to business internet. Offering high-speed connectivity, flexibility, and the latest security features, it’s the backbone of enterprise digital commerce.


But even hard-wire systems can be compromised by the events or aftermath of a disaster. Cables can snap, and underground fiber connections can fail under natural or man-made stresses.


The causes of Wi-Fi outages and their impacts can leave devasting marks on a community and the businesses in it. This piece on execulink.com cites a number of negative impacts a significant outage can have on a business, including:


• Loss of productivity

• Gaps in customer service

• Brand reputation damage and brand degradation

• Financial loss

• Decreased employee morale
