IT departments often struggle to get the budget they deserve for a comprehensive backup and disaster recovery system.

However, the heightened concern around the COVID-19 virus is changing minds. Organisations are accelerating plans to improve the way they protect data – while others are reconsidering long-standing policies, no longer seen to be inadequate. 

The health and well-being of employees will always remain of paramount importance, but not having access to data, even for a few hours, is of huge concern too as it can cause irreparable damage in the form of lost business, catastrophic fines and reputational damage.
