Hurricane season is here. These harsh weather events can produce devastating high-speed winds, torrential rains, and microbursts, and can bring your business to a grinding halt. To address the threat of hurricanes, your company should have an effective hurricane disaster recovery policy in place.
In the past few years, ransomware has become one of the most widespread and dangerous forms of malware. This type of malicious software can infect your computer, smartphone, or tablet, and hold your data hostage until you pay a ransom. If you're not careful, your Android device could be infected with ransomware and your business could suffer from data loss or other crippling problems.
Data loss can affect anyone. In fact, data stored on your Windows 10 computer can disappear in the blink of an eye. Backing up your data is the best defense against data loss, regardless of whether it’s due to a malware attack, hardware failure, or a natural disaster.
Cloud computing has revolutionized the way businesses operate, and practices in healthcare are no exception. Cloud-based solutions offer many benefits over traditional methods, including reliability, convenience, security, and scalability. In this blog post, we will discuss some of the main advantages of cloud computing in the healthcare industry.
Having a business continuity plan ensures that you have constant access to your business’s data, even when a disaster strikes your locale. Understandably, your choice of backup storage media will be critical to the success of such a plan. In this blog, we’ll discuss why the cloud is the ideal place to keep your company’s data backups.

Healthcare organizations should no longer be hesitant when adopting cloud computing, as the technology has become more ubiquitous and easy to use. If you know how to manage the cloud properly, it can even surpass the reliability and security offered by on-site IT. Here are just some of the business benefits of cloud computing.
To any business, ransomware means trouble. From operational disruption and revenue loss to total shutdown, it spares no aspect of the company. That’s why it’s wise to regularly back up your business data in multiple locations, including the cloud.
