Are Your Backup Plans in Place?

Many companies aren’t using the right safeguards. They rely on dated strategies, like maintaining a single backup. These fail to consider modern threats like ransomware, which can sit dormant for long periods, and infect months of backups. 

Backup and disaster recovery plans provide multiple safety nets for multiple scenarios.
Does your company have a strong backup retention policy in place? This is one of the critical safeguards to help ensure that your organization has restoration options when dealing with a data-impacting event.

Protect all of your data, including:


Why You Need a BDR Plan

Data loss occurs for many reasons, and can happen any time. Whether a hardware failure, or ransomware attack – if you can’t get back up fast enough it can mean lost productivity, lost clients and more.
Backup systems are a prime target of ransomware attackers.
Did you know that ransomware can sit dormant for months, silently infecting each new backup? This makes the road to recovery long and costly.

A modern BDR strategy that follows the 3-2-1-0 strategy is one of your best protections against things like ransomware attacks, and data loss due to:

Backup Plan Questions

Have questions about backup and disaster recovery plans? Keep reading, and be sure to contact us if you don’t find your answer below.

In the event of a crisis, you may initially lose the active copy of your data. But with an active BDR plan, it won't be lost.

Depending on your backup synchronization schedule, there may be differences between the active copy and the most recent backup – but OTG can help determine the right backup tools, and frequency of backups for your business. Contact us today to find out more.

Depending on the needs of the organization, implementing a robust and effective BDR plan can vary in cost. 

The best way to look at the cost of a BDR plan is like an insurance policy. The cost of not having one could be exponentially higher, and critically damaging to your business.

The time it takes to build a BDR plan varies from client to cleint.

It requires review of your organization's data, and what you need. The time can be as little as a few days, to months.

The factors that impact this? How much data you have. How quickly you may need it restored, and how much you are able to invest in technology.

In every case however, there are solutions that we can tailor perfectly to your needs.

The first step is starting the conversation. Contact us today to find out more on how to protect your organization.

The amount of time it takes to restore backed up data comes down how available a client needs that data to be.

It can be a matter of minutes, to hours depending on several factors, like internet speed.

The key is to build the backup plan that is right for your business, and that's  exactly what OTG does for its clients.

We have designed and implemented a variety of BDR solutions for a wide range of organizations. Each has different needs, and different amounts of data that need to be preserved and readily available.

Because each BDR plan is custom-tailored to the client, the best way to start protecting your data is to contact us and get the conversation started.

The 3-2-1-0 backup rule is one that OTG follows. It means that you a) have 3 copies of your data on b) 2 different types of storage and c) store 1 copy of the data in an off-site location. 0 refers to the number of errors your backups should complete with.

There is also the 3-2-1-1-0 rule. The additional 1 refers to storing your data offline, or in the cloud provided that this data copy cannot be edited while in storage.

Yes, and it can often be overlooked. Microsoft 365 is a suite of collaboration tools used across organizations, making it extra important to ensure that your company has a backup and retention plan in place to protect that valuable data.
