As IT systems have become increasingly critical to the smooth operation of a company, and arguably the economy as a whole, the importance of ensuring the continued operation of those systems, or the rapid recovery of the systems, has increased.
It is estimated that most large companies spend between 2% and 4% of their IT budget on disaster recovery planning, with the aim of avoiding larger losses in the event that the business cannot continue to function due to loss of IT infrastructure and data. Of companies that had a major loss of business data, 43% never reopen, 51% close within two years, and only 6% will survive long-term.
As a result, preparation for continuation or recovery of systems needs to be taken very seriously. This involves a significant investment of time and money with the aim of ensuring minimal losses in the event of a disruption.
Netixs has a two Phase approach with a six Stage system for our disaster recovery solutions and services.
We use control measures (solutions) that can reduce or eliminate various threats for organizations. In stages one through three we use preventative measures, which these controls are aimed at anticipating an event from occurring.
Stage one......Network Impact Analysis
The network impact analysis identifies weak points (circuits) in the WAN and the impact (cascading effects) it can have on the enterprise.
Stage two......Risk Assessment
Building a risk assessment framework begins with diagnosing the probability of an occurrence (outage) and the consequences (costs).
Stage three......Recovery Time Objective
We provide a detailed recovery plan to restore the outage which includes notification, trouble ticket resolution and escalation process and procedures.
All three Stages work in tandem with Phase two.
We use control mechanisms (services) that can reduce or eliminate various threats for organizations. In stages four through six we use detective measures, which these controls are aimed at exposing or discovering unwanted events. And corrective measures are aimed at rectifying or restoring the system after a disaster or event.
