An ounce of prevention...

Disaster Planning & Recovery

Viruses. Hackers. Lightning. Floods. Burst pipes. Faulty cabling. Good old-fashioned absent-mindedness. 

Disasters can strike at any time. Some of them we can plan for and thwart. Others, we have to be prepared with contingency plans. How well your business endures an unfortunate event depends on you. 

As the old saying goes, an ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure. 

Surviving a Disaster

The Importance of Backups

Let’s begin by acknowledging this simple fact: those without redundant backups will recover from a disaster much more slowly and expensively (if they recover at all).

If every system in your office is destroyed and you have no backups, every disk will have to be extracted, sent to a forensic data recovery center, and in a week (maybe as quickly as a few days), you might get your data back. And the bill will be eye popping.

Disaster Recovery Plan

One of our premier services is the creation of a Disaster Recovery Plan. We analyze your needs and make recommendations for appropriate hardware and services. We begin our plan with Backups options, and then help you write policies based on different scenarios. After that, we get into more preventative activities that can help prevent some disasters.


You’ve heard it all before. Keep your operating system up to date. Download patches for the software you use. Run antivirus, check your log files, etc. These activities can help close dangerous vulnerabilities that allow malware and hackers to infect and infiltrate your computers.

But who has time for all that?

Technology Revealed offers a subscription-based product called Alert. It contains antimalware software that can identify malware at the point of infection and neutralize it. Alert also applies patches and upgrades to ensure that your system isn’t vulnerable. And if that’s not enough, it monitors your systems and notifies us if there’s any kind of problem. If Alert prevents one infection in 100 years, it will have more than paid for itself.
