Data protection is of critical importance for all businesses, but America’s smaller, mom-and-pop businesses can suffer particular devastation. Small businesses are especially vulnerable because few of them have the resources or knowledge to assess disaster risks and develop comprehensive mitigation and recovery plans, according to SCORE, a small business mentoring partner of the U.S. Small Business Administration.
Take a look at the statistics on small businesses that fail to operate with sufficient data protection:
- It takes 19 days and costs $17,000 to reproduce just 20MB of lost data – a price few small businesses can afford.
- 43% of companies that lose data in a disaster and have no emergency plan never reopen. Of those that do reopen following a major data loss, only 29% are still operating two years later.
- 60 percent of small firms that experience a major data loss go out of business within six months, 70% within a year and 90% within two years.
Time is of the essence. A company that experiences a computer outage lasting more than 10 days will never fully recover financially and 80% of companies that do not recover from a data loss disaster within one month are likely to go out of business. Don’t let your company’s future fall victim to a complete data loss. Skadoit offers a range of data protection products and services tailored to your needs and at prices that your small business can afford. These include data backup for both your computers and your mobile devices, cloning of your full system and data every 15 minutes, and continuity services that keep your business running even in the midst of a disaster.
