ENDPOINTS How modernized data protection can revolutionize DR plan
What is Disaster Recovery plan?
The main purpose of IT is quick and effective processing information. Data drives the business. You use many devices where your data is stored and processed. Cloud environments, local servers, endpoint devices. Any interruption in the functioning of the infrastructure can lead to very serious consequences. Disaster recovery stands for rules and procedures implemented after the occurrence of a disaster both natural and man-made, to restore the full functionality of your IT infrastructure. Its representation is information technology disaster recovery plan (IT DRP).

Recovery strategies should focus on: networks, servers, desktops, laptops, wireless devices, data and communications.
On average, businesses lose over $100,000 per ransomware incident due to downtime and recovery costs.
Data backup is the essence of DR plan. Because of how your infrastructure is designed, you can build your own solutions or use software that will meet your needs and DR plan requirements. It is worth to remember that even the best plan should be tested regularly.
The cost of building parallel data centers is still very high. Implementation of DRaaS solutions (Disaster Recovery as a Service) can meet the expectations of all-size businesses, it’s cost effective and easy to manage.Modernized data protection is the most important part of Disaster Recovery Plan, ensuring business continuity and minimizing both RTO and RPO.
Recovery Point Objective (RPO) and Recovery Time Objective (RTO) are the two most important parameters of a disaster recovery plan.
