Get Total Data Protection with Netcetera360
Posted by Steve Salter on 29 December 2016 11:48 AM

Does your business have all the protection it needs?

If the power in your office fails tonight, and all of your computers crash, how quickly can you recover? And more importantly, at what cost? According to the London Chamber of Commerce, 80% of businesses without a well structured recovery plan are forced to shut within 12 months of a flood or fire.

We’re here to ensure your business doesn’t become another statistic. Our business continuity solution is about more than just backup – it’s designed to quickly revive your network following any unplanned downtime, and ensure your employees are operating productively in almost no time at all. 

Unparalleled Peace of Mind

In today’s always-on business landscape, maintaining an effective backup and disaster recovery (BDR) strategy is becoming more important than ever before. Data is playing an increasingly critical role in decision-making processes, and the costs and risks associated with downtime are skyrocketing – not to mention the damage your brand and reputation can suffer in the event of a disaster.  

Netcetera’s business continuity solution includes features like continuous data protection, cloud-based replication and recovery, and more – all for one low fixed monthly price per protected server.

What does that mean? It means you can rest easy knowing that your critical data, emails, reports, and other information are all protected, backed up and securely tucked away until you need them.  

Direct Support

Having a backup appliance in place is only the first step in a successful business continuity strategy. To minimise the risk of data loss as much as possible, you’ll want to have technicians proactively monitoring the entire backup process to ensure things are working as expected.

That’s why we’ve got a dedicated team keeping a watchful eye over your protected servers, ready to jump into action should any problems arise. And if the worst should happen, don’t worry – we’ll have you back up and running quickly.

Netcetera’s PlanB Officially Open
Posted by Steve Salter on 08 February 2016 12:10 PM
Making your business shockproof has just become a whole lot easier since the opening of Netcetera’s planB. 

The business held an open evening for over 65 invited guests to launch DR.IM as well as the company’s new flagship Business Recovery Centre, planB. The new facility was officially opened by the Isle Of Man’s Chief Minister The Right Honourable Allan Bell, MHK.

The feedback from those of you who did manage to attend has been excellent.

It was interesting to hear that many of the businesses represented on the night had a Business Recovery Plan in place, just as interesting but a little concerning was to hear that some  hadn’t tested their plan on a regular basis neither examined whether their current plan offered value for money.
