Protect your business by implementing a business continuity strategy that puts the necessary plan and technology in place to reduce downtime in the event a disaster occurs. With other variables in play, if your technology experiences any sort of downtime, it can be detrimental to your business. Ask yourself a few questions. Are your servers backed up? Is all of your data stored on-site? Could your business continue to produce in the event of a major equipment failure caused by a hard-drive malfunction? Could your business still perform in the event of a natural disaster like a flood, lightning strike, or even theft? Our team of experts create detailed strategies and conduct risk assessments to build contingency plans in the event of a disaster.


Very few people will care more about your business than you. It’s your livelihood, something you probably have been working on your entire life. By implementing a business continuity strategy that puts the necessary plan and technology in place to reduce downtime in the event of a disaster, you’ve gone from unprepared to prepared for any surprises that loom in the horizon. Are your servers backed up routinely? Is all your data stored on-site? Could your business weather a major equipment failure caused by a hard drive crash, flood, lightning strike, or even theft? Take a look at some of the advantages that you can benefit for having a routine risk assessment and detailed strategy in place.


Have the peace of mind in knowing that your organization can withstand changes in its environment and still function. Your business will be prepared, protected, responsive, and can recover no matter what cataclysmic event your organization endures.



Your organization’s ability to be readily available for any circumstance involves knowing every nook and cranny within your environment. Equipment, supplies, suppliers, locations, work sites, documents, procedures, employees – should we keep going? No stone goes unturned.



Often times than not, in life we want to evaluate the data in hand to make the best decision. This includes analyzing both the macro and micro of your infrastructure. You will have a team of experts in backup and disaster recovery, assessing your system’s vulnerabilities where there exists the highest level of risk allowing us to design a customized strategy and implementation to reduce downtime for your business.



Having procedures in place for any circumstance is critical for an organization to run smoothly. We’ll create standard operating procedures (SOP) for the following:

  • Determining how existing risks will affect operations.
  • Implementing safeguards and procedures to mitigate the risks.
  • Testing procedures to ensure they work.
  • Reviewing the process to make sure that it is up to date.


What’s the real cost of IT Downtime?

Infrastructure matters. When your network or applications unexpectedly fail or crash, downtime can have a direct impact on your bottom line and ongoing business operations.

IT Downtime Factors

The industry average cost of downtime is dependent on a lot of variables. The monetary losses vary when you consider your revenue, industry, the actual duration of the outage, the number of people impacted, the time of day, etc.

For example, losses are significantly higher per hour for businesses who are based on high-level data transactions, like banks and online retail sales.

If you experience an unplanned outage during peak traffic time, obviously the damage will be more significant.

Additional Cost of IT Downtime

But there are other costs that don’t often show up in dollar form. Did you know, according to a study by UC Irvine, it often takes an average of 23 minutes to refocus and get your head back in the game after an interruption?

IT downtime affects customer retention, employee productivity and reputation in the marketplace. It is extremely expensive, and in ways that can make or break the success of your organization.
