Business Continuity


Business Continuity

Business disruption can come in many forms; data corruption, power outages, human error, building damage, cyber-attacks or hardware failure. Regardless of how the disruption occurs, the results can be costly and potentially damaging to a business’ reputation. The key to providing clients with the best business continuity solutions is to firstly understand how the disruption could potentially affect all key areas of the business, then put technology in place that meets those return to operation goals. supportIT provide a suite of fully managed technology solutions and planning guidelines that addresses the data protection and business continuity needs of your business.

Cloud Backups

Offsite/Cloud backups are a critical part of our IT infrastructure recommendations for business continuity. This is largely due to the fact Cloud backups are secure, scalable, easy to implement and can be quickly restored. The supportIT Cloud backup solution also meets best practice regulations in terms of data protection because of the offsite nature of the data. Cloud backups can be applied across all endpoints and physical/virtual servers and are a fully managed solution. supportIT deliver fully managed Cloud backup solutions powered by Ec.ko’s Cloud Backups as a Service.

Microsoft 365 Backup

Priced on a per license, per month basis, Microsoft 365 Backup facilitates a backup of the Microsoft Exchange Online Mailboxes, Folders, Mail, Contacts, Calendar and Tasks. And includes extended applications like SharePoint, Teams and OneDrive. Data can be retained in line with individual business requirements and fast restore allows those missing files to be restored instantly. Improved security, including Multi Factor Authentication, is included as well as specific reporting options. Installation is at console-level and usually takes 1-hour per site, there is no downtime or disruption to service during the installation.

Business Continuity Planning
