Our most recent series of Lunchinars focused on business continuity and backup recovery.  Although it all seems like a big project to undertake, truly, the offerings of today allow you to easily protect your data and guarantee that things will continue to run as they should or be recoverable should disaster strike.


Even given the latest and greatest technological advances, it is amazing to see how little companies do to make sure that they can recover in the event of something debilitating. 


1,425 small and midsized businesses world-wide were recently surveyed regarding their IT security readiness and protection.  Here are the (somewhat concerning) results:


59% had no endpoint protection


47% had no desktop backup/recovery


42% had no dedicated IT staff


42% had no anti-spam solutions


35% had reported lost or stolen data devices


38% had no server backup/recovery


33% had no anti-virus protection


32% had security breaches due to out-of-date tools


25% had deliberate sabotage by employees
