DRaaS, It’s not just for Disasters Anymore

a CCSI Webinar
November 14, 2018, 1:00 pm – 2:00 pm

Disaster Recovery as a Service (DRaaS) has become a key consideration for businesses both large and small as they look to be able to recover from disasters more quickly and suffer less loss of data and productivity. Disasters like hurricanes, floods and fires are of course top of mind BUT there are other disasters that may not be as physically catastrophic, yet equally catastrophic to your organization’s data.

DRaaS also offers the perfect last resort protection against ransomware and malware of all sorts. It doesn’t matter how good your perimeter and endpoint protection is, something always seems to find its way in. DRaaS is there standing by to ensure you don’t need to pay a ransom and pray it decrypts or go to backup tapes that could take days to completely restore.

DRaaS is the perfect solution for all the disasters you can think of, and all those you can’t. It brings Fortune 500 disaster recovery capabilities to the SMB market at prices they will embrace.
