What is a Managed Services Provider?

Technology helps manage business. But it’s often difficult and expensive for a business to effectively manage its technology.

For many of them, the answer is to engage the services of a first-quality Managed Services Provider. Learn what these companies do and if one may be a good fit for your organization.

Backup vs. Business Continuity

SMBs in general don’t have the same IT budgets and staffs as larger enterprises. Yet just like larger organizations they need to protect their data—and make sure they can get back to business rapidly after a disaster or other event that compromises their data and systems.

In this white paper, we’ll discuss what’s at stake when it comes to not just protecting, but also managing, your data (hint: your business). We’ll explain why it’s important to think in terms of business continuity rather than simply data backup. And we’ll look at how to calculate the all-important Recovery Time Objective (RTO) and Recovery Point Objective (RPO) so that you can get what you need from your business continuity vendor.
