Business Data Protection

Make sure your data is safe, no matter what.

Have you ever stopped to think about what would happen to your business if your critical or sensitive data was compromised by a major security breach, or if your systems were lost in a natural disaster? Or by something seemingly insignificant like a faulty sprinkler system or spilled coffee on your equipment? What would happen if someone broke in and stole the equipment in your office?

Fidelis can help ensure your business survives events like these by protecting and preserving your data, with the ability to get back up and running in a matter of minutes.

It is critical that any of your important data have multiple layers of protection—physical protection (power protection, systems locked in a secure area, alarm system in place, proper cooling), software protection to prevent data loss from malware, data encryption to protect you if equipment is lost or stolen, and a proven data backup and business continuity solution.

Fidelis’ Business Continuity & Business Data Protection solutions include:

  • Establishing and developing long-term strategies, policies, and procedures.
  • Providing robust backup and business continuity solutions.
  • Advice on how to properly protect your systems from physical damage due to power loss, proper cooling of your critical equipment, proper grounding, etc.
  • Recommendations on how to best provide physical security of critical systems—controlled access/locks, alarms, etc.
  • Regular backup verification tests.
  • A personalized plan to fit your business needs that’s easy to implement.
  • Backup your data to the cloud and ensure multi-layered, off-site data protection.
  • Protection for on-premise systems and cloud-based Software-as-a-Service (SaaS) protection including Office 365 and Google Apps/G Suite.
  • 24/7 monitoring and management to ensure data integrity
  • Shared documentation so you can directly access your backup solution to recover from a major disaster if needed.
  • Is all of your important business data is being properly protected?
  • Do you fully understand your risks?
  • Are you obligated to have backups and business continuity plans in place for compliance reasons (HIPAA, etc.)?
  • Are your systems up-to-date and properly configured to minimize the risk of intentional or accidental data loss?
  • Are your systems configured to have local data encryption enabled using tools such as BitLocker? If so, are the encryption keys backed up and documented in a location that you could quickly find in case a system needed to be decrypted in case of hardware failure, etc.?
  • Do you use role-based security to limit access to data based on an employee’s role with your organization?
  • How quickly could you restore your systems and have them be functional after a disaster? What is your Recovery Time Objective (RTO)?
  • What retention policy do you have in place? Could you recover backups from 15 minutes, an hour, a day, a week, or months in the past? What are your Recovery Point Objectives (RPO)?
  • Are your current backups image-based so that you can fully recover a system including applications, data, and configuration?
  • Does your backup solution allow you to restore files selectively?
  • Do you have multiple copies of your backups on and off-site? If so, how frequently is your data being taken or replicated off-site?
  • Does your backup solution allow you to virtualize your systems and quickly restore operations in case of hardware failure of a critical server or PC?
  • Does your backup solution allow you to virtualize in the cloud in case of major disaster to at least provide you the ability to continue your business operations on a limited basis and access your data?
  • Are you taking multiple backups per day so that if data loss were to occur, you would be able to minimize data loss to a very short amount of time?
  • Does your IT service provider share documentation with you to allow you to access your backups in case of a disaster?
  • How often do you test your backups? Does your backup solution provide an automated way to provide assurance that your backups are sound and could be recovered quickly?
