Maintaining business continuity is your highest priority.
In today’s commercial landscape, business continuity depends on the efficient, uninterrupted flow of data across the organization – from operations to sales to fulfillment. Even a brief lapse in workload continuity can mean thousands of lost sales opportunities, disruption to production, and compromised customer trust.
The causes of those lapses can range from natural disasters to mechanical failure or human error. You need a data platform and a proactive disaster recovery (DR) strategy that will help you stay up and running in the event that your physical infrastructure is unavailable for any length of time.
Fulfilling orders, providing a high level of customer service, and keeping consumers engaged all depend on the efficient, uninterrupted flow of data throughout your organization.
Above all, protecting customer data—especially personally identifiable information (PII) —is critical
Hewlett Packard Enterprise is helping protect organizations by building security and resiliency into the fabric of their enterprise, proactively detecting and responding to threats, and safeguarding continuity and compliance to effectively mitigate risk.
Effective security for cloud-hosted web applications requires full visibility into the environment in which the apps live and the potential exposure to vulnerabilities — and to do so consistently, while proactively monitoring for attacks without causing delays in application development and delivery.
Cloud adoption means that a focus on perimeter security is not sufficient and may even be obstructive, because it can impact application performance and availability.
Similarly, relying on your cloud service provider’s security services is insufficient; any provider will tell you that securing the cloud environment is a shared responsibility between cloud service provider and customer, and the responsibility for specifically securing web applications is the sole responsibility of the customer. And although the industry as a whole has become better at protecting lower-level network and server resources, as attackers look for targets, they are moving up the application stack.
To succeed in a tough marketplace, small businesses must be accessible, without significant interruption, even in the most adverse situations. This kind of ongoing accessibility is an important aspect of business continuity - a critical success strategy that doesn't just happen, but requires proactive planning. Although there are several aspects to a business continuity plan, a major component of any plan should be the SME's communications capabilities, not just its equipment or data. This paper will explore how different kinds of interruptions can adversely affect an SME's business continuity and illustrate how, through advanced features such as resiliency and mobility, Avaya's IP Office can help SMEs overcome interruptions and maintain business continuity.
Overwhelmed by the volume of security intelligence and alerts, human analysts need machine learning to augment and accelerate efforts. Machine learning moves security analytics from diagnostic and descriptive to prescriptive and proactive, leading to faster and more accurate detection.

When was the last time you thought about your disaster recovery plan? Natural disasters, such as earthquakes, tsunamis, hurricanes, fires, or floods can occur anytime and disable your data center, with little to no warning. Hacker activities like a denial of service attack can also take down your systems unexpectedly. Then you have the more mundane risks such as human error and hardware or software failures. The only predictable thing to say about these risks is that at some point, on some scale, you’ll have to recover your data center from downtime. When it comes to disaster readiness, proactive planning is the key to success. Every business, regardless of size, needs to have a well-tested disaster recovery plan in place. Every minute your systems are down, the financial implications grow.
Take the assessment to see where your disaster recovery plan ranks. Then learn about next steps and more information.
