- Offsite data storage.
- Disaster recovery plan.
CMIT Guardian was the solution after many of CMIT Solutions of Chapel Hill’s current clients came to us after a prior data backup failure. Everyone likes to think they have reliable backups in place, but it takes more than software or an appliance to protect your data and your business. Most companies don’t have a professionally managed data backup and business continuity plan — and they don’t know the consequences of such inaction until it is too late.
If you want to know if your current system is serving you well, ask yourself these questions:
1) When was the last time you recovered data?
2) How did it go?
3) Was your data recovered successfully?
4) How long did it take?
5) Do you have a repeatable process in place for recovering your data and your business should the unthinkable happen?
Many of our clients thought they did — until it mattered. Nobody wants to admit they may have a flawed process or substandard backup system. That’s why we treat your data backups like the crown jewels. Because nothing is more important to the success of your business.
Knowing what you need isn’t that simple. We can help you consider your recovery point and recovery time objectives. We help you protect all of your data at a reasonable cost. Once we have a process defined, we will implement and manage your data — Every. Single. Day. We provide enterprise-class data protection and business continuity support at a price any company can afford.
CMIT Guardian has two primary goals: protecting your business data and preserving the continuity of your business operations. When the unexpected happens, we help you re-establish normal operations as quickly as possible. One of the advantages of CMIT Guardian is the service we wrap around our technology. We offer a disaster recovery and business continuity plan with every CMIT Guardian installation.
We offer a disaster recovery plan with every CMIT Guardian service plan. We will help you prepare for every type of emergency, right-sizing the plan for your business. With CMIT Guardian, you will have a recipe that allows for effective disaster recovery.
We provide maximum security when backing up and restoring data to and from the cloud. We encrypt your data both at rest and in transit to our offsite data centers. Information is first packaged to ensure that bandwidth is minimized during transmission. The data is then encrypted using a unique 256-bit AES encryption key to ensure that it cannot be accessed by others.
We monitor each data backup job — if it does not complete for any reason, we will restart and complete the job. We inspect your backup data sets and execute a backup test to assure your data can be recovered and restored.
With CMIT Guardian, you have the best line of defense against ransomware attacks. Up-to-date, recoverable data backups eliminate the threat of hackers holding your data hostage. Should the worst happen, we can run your business from a specialized virtual server that allows immediate access to your latest data backup.
We store your data in an SSAE 16 SOC 2 HIPAA-compliant data center. These data centers are located thousands of miles apart to eliminate redundancy, and each data center boasts 24/7 monitoring and advanced security measures like biometrically controlled access, backup generators, and redundant connections to the Internet. Canadian clients may also choose a SSAE 16 SOC 2 compliant data center in Canada.
We provide data archiving that meets all regulatory compliance obligations. We can archive data for any number of years to satisfy HIPAA or FINRA regulations and also provide email archiving if needed.
We monitor your data around the clock, no matter where it is located. From our centralized management console, we oversee data stored on desktops, laptops, on-premise and cloud servers, and online file sharing applications.
Whether you need file, folder or bare metal restore, server virtualization, or data archiving, we can help. CMIT Guardian offers flexibility, so we can help you choose what works best for your needs. We compile multiple versions of your data — if something happens and you need to roll back to an earlier version, no problem. Tell us what you need and we can provide it.
