Whether it’s caused by hardware failure, human error, natural disaster, cyber-attack, or other issue, downtime is a critical problem. In fact, the 2018 Risk Barometer report by global insurance company Allianz lists disruptions in business operations as the top risk for organizations globally. In 2017, according to Forbes, organizations lost an average of $100,000 for every hour of downtime. Your employees and customers can’t afford disconnection, and neither can you. With business processes now highly dependent on IT systems, any major failure in the IT infrastructure can cripple an entire operation. Infrastructure is clearly a top asset, requiring continuous development and investment in security, network resilience, and pro-active response to disruption.
