What are Data Protection Services?

Data Protection Services are Essential IT ServicesSM required by all business entities.

Data Protection Services are designed to safeguard your organization's valuable data and information.

Data Protection Services are divided into the following categories: Backup and Recovery Services, Disaster Recovery Services and Information Security Services.

Backup and Recovery Services

Backup and Recovery Services are designed to protect from accidental data loss due to data corruption, failed equipment, virus infection, security breaches or similar issues.

When one or more of the above scenarios occurs on your computer or network, it is essential to your business operations that you have the ability to recover this data in a timely and reliable manner.

Backup and Recovery Services are designed utilizing a combination of hardware, software and operational strategies to ensure that your valuable data is protected and can be recovered quickly, saving you costly downtime and lost productivity.

Information Security Services

Information Security Services are designed to protect data from hostile attacks from both internal and external threats. These threats are managed by creating and implementing an Information Security Plan.

Internal threats are generally seen as both the "intentional" and "accidental" actions of employees and others who access your organization's data.

An example of an accidental action might be an employee who unknowingly has a virus on his/her home computer and brings that virus to the office via a USB flash drive, an e-mail message, or similar medium.

Internal threats are primarily managed by Information Security Policies, through managing user access to your organization's data and through Content Filtering Services.

External threats are generally seen as any attempt by individuals outside your organization to gain unauthorized access to your organization's IT systems or data.

Commonly these individuals are referred to by such terms as "hackers" or "script-kiddies", etc. These individuals often have a wide range of intentions ranging from simple "electronic vandalism" to specifically targeting an organization to steal information or reap some form of revenge.

Each business entity must assess its own level of risk and develop an appropriate Information Security Plan. Nevertheless, all business entities are at risk of attack for "electronic vandalism", computer viruses, and other forms of attack.

External threats are primarily managed by Firewalls, Anti-Virus Services, and Patch Management Services.
