Disaster Relief: 10 Tech Tools to Save Your Business
Carbonite | Dec 19, 2011
In August 2011, Hurricane Irene traveled up the East Coast, delivering high winds and drenching rain from the Carolinas to New York City as predicted. However, no one anticipated that many towns in New Jersey, Pennsylvania, New Hampshire and Vermont would be flooded for days, jeopardizing the IT systems -- and very existence -- of hundreds of small businesses. In Texas, meanwhile, a lack of water fueled wildfires that destroyed dozens more. And it's not just natural catastrophes that can wipe out your precious data: hard drives crash, PCs get stolen, viruses corrupt files and employees inadvertently (or maliciously) delete folders. You can protect your business from such calamity by preparing for disaster recovery in advance for events ranging from the unexpected to the unthinkable. These 10 small business technology products and services will help you do just that.
