PolyOne Stays Secure in Canton

polyone-logoEven before Sandy, we have seen more and more businesses taking a fresh look at their disaster recovery strategies.  What companies here in Ohio and across the nation are finding is that the strategy their organization is relying on for business continuity is falling woefully short.

Whether it’s the result of relying on tape-based backups, data centers that are too close or too far geographically, or some other of the hundred reasons a solid disaster recovery plan is imperative – businesses are finding that in 2013 they need a sound strategy, or they’ll find themselves out of business with the next “100 year storm” or man-made disaster. According to a study by Agility Recovery Solutions:

  • Nearly 4 in 5 (78%) of businesses faced with a catastrophe without a contingency plan are out of business within 2 years, and
  • 9 in 10 (90%) of companies unable to resume business operations within 5 days of a disaster are out of business within 1 year.

Mostly disaster recovery is talked about in terms of bringing systems back up in days rather than hours. Can the most critical operations of your business be offline for days?

By developing redundant network at SecureData 365, PolyOne has affordably driven recovery time and recovery point down to less than an hour. Read how they did it >>
