Disaster Recovery Plan

For some organisations, to unexpectedly lose power could have disastrous effects. The health care sector relies on power to be available 24/7 to support life safety equipment. The finance sector also heavily relies on power availability around the clock to keep systems up and running. A drop in power could cause all kinds of havoc, from customers not being able to access their money to security implications. Do you have a Disaster Recovery Plan in place to protect your business?

Do you need a guaranteed response time? Do you need guaranteed equipment availability?

For a fixed annual fee, we will put together a bespoke Disaster Recovery Plan and issue you with your unique contract number. Call our 24/7 Helpdesk and quote your contract number and we will initiate your Disaster Recovery Plan.
