Backup Recovery Isn’t Just for Business – Paintball Guns at the Ready

System failures can happen at any time and cause a slew of problems for your business — from lost data to extended downtime, even client loss. Backup recovery can help you get back on your feet even when the most improbably hiccups occur at your company.

Even in the extremely unlikely event your office were to be stormed by coworkers decked head-to-toe in paintball gear, airsofts blazing — backup and data recovery can save the day.

Backup recovery is a tool designed to help your business not lose any ground when worse comes to worst, including a barrage of splattering paint pellets. This means that there is a specific plan of attack for your business to help you recover in the quickest way possible.

First Line of Defense

The first step to having a great backup and recovery plan is having preventative measures in place. While this includes backup generators and auto-saving servers, protecting your computer from an onslaught of paintballs can be as simple as making your work space into a cardboard fortress.

Your wall of boxes is your first line of defense from paint splatters, just like an auto saving server or regularly synced cloud storage protects your unsaved work from disappearing into the ether.

When Things Get Messy

Other forms of backup recovery include onsite storage and cloud storage. Onsite storage is when your business data is backed-up in your onsite facility. Cloud storage also protects your company, but stores data in the Cloud rather than onsite.  This protects important business data in the event of a natural or man-made disaster.

When the man-made disaster of an ambush paintball attack happens in your office, your data is protected, even if your computer is smashed and the servers get fried by wet paint in the chaos.

Drilling Away

A key component of a successful data recovery plan is making sure that it actually works before you ever need to use it. You can have the most intricate recovery plan in the world, but if you’ve never tested it, there’s nothing you can do when disaster happens in real time and the backup to your backup fails.

Just like double checking recovery methods, running drills and counterattacks can help protect you from coworkers hellbent on turning you and your workstation into a Pinterest canvas painting. Practicing your tuck-and-roll can save your favorite work shirt from a paint splatter, just like practicing recovery methods can save your company from the worst.

Simplify Your Life with the Best Online Backup

Besides your people, the very essence of your entire business is your data. Without it, imagine trying to go on. Statistically, the odds are not in your favor: more than 60% of businesses fail within six months of a major data loss. That’s a frightening number ­– especially if confronted with the loss of your entire office. That’s why it’s imperative to equip your office with the best online backup available.

Online Backup Saves Your Data in A Disaster

Imagine it: you come to work one day to find your office . . . gone. Completely gone. Your hardware, your servers, even your desks and chairs – eradicated. Starting again from scratch seems impossible to some business owners. However, even if you lost everything else – how much easier would it be to carry on if all your business data were still intact – tucked safely away in a remote backup location? You could use insurance money to replace your lost equipment, download your data, and – wow – you’re back in business.

Retrieve Even One Corrupted File in Minutes

Sometimes, data loss doesn’t have to be massive to be terribly destructive. Imagine a very special file you and your team have worked on for months – maybe years ­– just to get it as perfect as possible. Then, one day, it can’t be opened. Did someone save it the wrong way?? Did the file just go corrupt?? In the long run, it doesn’t matter. All that matters is that your file is lost. But with the best online backup supporting you, simply retrieve the most recent version of the file from backup, open it up, and get back to work.

How to Achieve Managed Network Security without the Use of the Force

Pursued by the Attacker’s sinister objectives, GROUP ONE continues in its quest to continue protecting its clients from continued attacks and restore freedom to the galaxy….

Managing Network Security Without the Force

An incredible mental discipline of the Jedi is to join with the Force, harness its power, and focus it on their objectives. While the ability to destroy a planet is insignificant next to the power of the Force, GroupOne utilizes tactics that are just as effective.

Detecting Trouble Without Feeling a Disturbance

When you reach the level of discipline and training as the experts at GroupOne, you can quickly determine when an attack is underway. And you won’t have to sit down and emotionally recuperate later.

Remote Monitoring Without Waving our Hand Mysteriously

As if by magic, GroupOne can monitor your network using only the technology they have in place. Although, sometimes they do perform the hand wave when connecting to your network. But that’s only for show.

Fending Off Cyber Attacks Without a Force-Choke

Lord Vader was the king of intimidation with his handy-dandy Sith move. If you even perturbed him in the slightest, you could expect to be lifted off the ground by your neck by and unseen power ­– or Force. It would be totally cool if we could do that to the people trying to break into your network, but as of right now, we can only reinforce your security. It’s almost as satisfying.

Come to the Light Side of GroupOne

For the best-managed network security available, you don’t have to let the Force be your guide. Simply reach out – listen to your feelings – and make contact. We’ll be here, young Paduwan learners. Your training is about to begin.

How Managed Network Security Stops Thieves in Their Tracks

Thieves can be anywhere, they don’t necessarily congregate under bridges or in those dark and creepy allies as much anymore.

With the help of GroupOne’s managed network security services, you can continue about your day with full confidence that not only your but also your clients’ information is safe and secure. This is implemented by creating customized security solutions based upon the needs presented so that you get exactly what you require to be safe.

Be Safe from Both Ransomware and Cryptolocker

Don’t be prey to thieves using malware such as ransomware, which locks your operating system, or cryptolocker, which locks specific files without a specific pass key set by the cybercriminal. Both are highly used Trojan malware to extort money from you or your clients, and are generally targeted towards high value systems or files that have to do with sensitive information such as social security codes and credit card information. One of the first steps to having managed network security is by first testing your infrastructure for weaknesses, because to be strong you must first know where you are weak, and then proactively improve your network security against such future threats.

With Managed Network Security, Good Things Come in Threes

To keep up with the high demands of security as well as PCI, HIPAA, SEC, and FINRA regulations, GroupOne is an expert at keeping your network secure with a multi-layer defense. This includes strengthening your firewalls, email security, and controlling not only who but also what devices are capable of accessing your network. The firewall can be the most basic of defense, but is generally the best utilized as most are not used properly or in some cases not at all. With managed network security you and your clients receive only the messages they need while keeping any possible threats or spam from reaching your inbox. Finally with the growing amounts of ways to access a network with various mobile devices, it’s paramount to control the devices capable of doing so. Security should be your highest priority, let us help keep you protected!

The Standards for Regulatory Compliance Assessment

The best way to stay out of trouble is to know which rules do and don’t apply to you and your business. If you don’t understand the speed limit, you aren’t going to instinctively drive under 55 miles per hour. Unfortunately, ignorance won’t get out of the fees associated with non-compliance or breaking the law. Luckily, a regulatory risk assessment will determine how compliant you are with with the rules and regulations relevant to your business.

The Importance of Compliance Risk Assessment

Rules and regulations are necessary for any society to thrive. They bring criminals to justice, resolve disputes, promote the common good, and foster moral development. Laws help protect the masses by keeping the worst from happening. A compliance risk assessment helps avoid the threat posed to a company’s integrity and profitability as a result of violation or noncompliance. Companies that fail to utilize risk assessments leave themselves susceptible to their worst corporate nightmares.
