Business Continuity in the Wake of COVID-19 (Coronavirus)

Business Continuity in the Wake of COVID-19 (Coronavirus)


It’s no secret that COVID-19 is front and center on the minds of people and businesses across the world. Unfortunately, in times like these many organizations are now asking a question that has been lingering for a long time: Have we looked at our organization’s contingency planning?

They are now asking questions that just a short time ago seemed like overkill. Unfortunately, the overkill has become reality.  It’s not just the possibility of an outbreak; it’s also a possibility of remote access, security and quality of life issues.

We’ve seen a dramatic uptick from our clients encouraging their employees to work remotely. It’s become apparent and more critical than ever for businesses to support remote working for their employees, along with the ability to still collaborate with their teams and customers.

Have you found yourself asking any of these questions?

  • Can I operate my business if key individuals could not come to work?
  • Could I operate my business in the cloud, and possibly cut down on office costs?
  • What about backup and recovery – how do I ensure I keep my data current?
  • I would like to open a remote office, and still have access to resources and files
  • How do I handle the security of remote access?
  • How do I keep my employees connected if they are working remotely?
  • How can I handle video calls – phone calls and meetings?

As a mid-sized business, you may not have the resources for a remote support team. Your costs would skyrocket; however, there is an answer.  If your business requires that your employees be connected to work, we have many solutions to solve your complex IT challenges and ensure your business continues to operate seamlessly.

Backup & Disaster Recovery (DR): For more than two decades, we have supported our clients with continuous uptime through countless major disasters, not once losing power on our data floors. Our replication, backup, and DR solutions allow you to meet your specific recovery point and time objectives, and our best-in-class data centers offer unparalleled security, redundancy, and reliability.

Virtual Desktop: To ensure full business continuity, you need a strategy that protects data everywhere – from the backend all the way through to end-users’ machines. IPR Desktop as a Service (DaaS) is a cloud-based way to manage and maintain your end user’s virtual desktop infrastructure (VDI).

Data Security: Cyber-attacks force many small business victims to shut down shortly after an attack due to the daunting costs of recovering data, notifying customers, and lost time to dedicate to day-to-day business. Our business resiliency strategy keeps your data secure and allows you to recover it quickly should disaster strike.

As you’re following the latest developments and evaluating plans for your business, we want to be your trusted partner to help you make these mission critical decisions. They should not be taken lightly, and our team is on standby to help you along the way. To learn more about IPR’s offering, contact us today.
