Hurricane season is upon us: Is your business prepared should disaster strike?

Although Tropical Storm Bill thankfully did not bring significant damage to the Houston area, it did bring a stark reminder that hurricane season has once again arrived. With nearly 59 million Americans living in coastline counties and millions more in neighboring counties, the importance of preparedness for worst-case scenarios grows as well. 

Is your business prepared should disaster strike? Putting together a business continuity plan should be a priority for all organizations. A company may rebuild brick and mortar, but protecting your data AND the reputation of your organization is another story.  

UCG's VAULT400 BaaS backs up an entire organization’s business-critical data to secure data centers, ensuring financial, HIPAA, and legal compliance for their clients. Safe and off-site, the encrypted data is available online at all times for immediate, user-initiated recovery. VAULT400 works seamlessly within an organization’s existing infrastructure while supporting all platforms and databases.

In addition, UCG offers remote hardware disaster recovery. Select the required time for recovery of operations and we will present a complete offering to meet your needs.

A timely reminder: Colocation Solution Keeps Insurer Online Amid Hurricane Sandy's Wrath 

Though the IT team at Newark, NJ-based International Fidelity Insurance Company (IFIC) had rehearsed its disaster recovery scenario with precision, the team couldn't have anticipated an event that would take out power, roads and communications across a wide swath of the mid-Atlantic coast. When Hurricane Sandy hit in October, 2012, the disaster recovery team had to fail over to a co-location site with the clock ticking on its uninterruptible power supply and no phone service.

Watch this podcast to learn how with the guidance from IBM partner United Computer Group, IFIC avoided nearly $2 million in lost revenues and learned valuable lessons to help it prepare for future incidents.
