What is DRaaS? An Intro to Disaster Recovery as a Service
Disaster recovery as a service (DRaaS) takes data protection off-site to help companies ensure business continuity in case a disaster strikes.
Businesses of all sizes are facing more data and cybersecurity risks than ever before. Large enterprises can afford to have extensive resources and teams on hand to mitigate risk, but most mid-size brands lack the resources for in-house, round the clock IT help to plan for disasters and business interruptions. IT staffers are focused on the everyday details that support business needs, not the threats you don’t see coming.
Because of this, today’s in-house IT teams are often strapped for time. This leads to an issue that you won’t discover until it is too late—a lack of disaster recovery planning. Many mid-sized businesses make this mistake, and for those who do encounter an emergency, the consequences can be devastating. Data protection companies can lift the burden of disaster recovery from in-house teams by using Disaster Recovery as a Service (DRaaS) to help ensure business continuity in the face of a cyber attack, natural disaster, or human error.
