Data Loss Statistics

Businesses cannot eliminate disasters, but proactive preparation can mitigate data loss and disruption to operations. A disaster recovery plan is an essential set of procedures documented to protect an organizations IT infrastructure after any disruption ranging from a power failure, system crash, natural disaster, or human error. There are three types of disaster recovery strategies:

  • Preemptive backup and recovery planning, designed to prevent a disaster.
  • Detective disaster recovery measures, designed to identify potential threats.
  • Corrective disaster recovery methods, designed to recover an IT infrastructure after a disaster has occurred.

What is IT Disaster Recovery?

Ensuring minimal disruption to business operations is dependent on the preventative, detective, and restorative measures a company takes, which is often detailed in a structured IT disaster recovery plan.

Security and Reliability

Vital Vault Security

Keep Your Data Safe with Vital Vault

Data security is critical, especially if you are subject to industry or federal regulations. Vital Vault takes this seriously, and we strive to meet the highest standards for data security and regulatory compliance.

We leverage leading technology to ensure data is stored securely and reliably, and that you can quickly retrieve data when you need it.

Data Security You Can Depend On

Clean Backups, Cleaner Restores

When it's time to perform a recovery, you need to know the data you backed up isn't corrupted. We perform numerous checks within our software and at the data center level to ensure that when you need to restore your data, it is clean and uncorrupted.

Military-Grade Data Encryption

Keep data safe wherever it is. We secure files beyond the 128-bit encryption methods typically used for online banking. We also communicate with our servers using Secure Socket Layers technology, ensuring your data is encrypted both in transit over the internet and in storage at our facilities.

Robust Data Center Security

Data is stored on state-of-the-art file servers in SSAE-16-certified, mirrored data centers located thousands of miles apart. Our facilities are secured with biometric controlled access, 24/7 monitoring, backup generators, and redundant connections to the Internet.

Your Data, When You Need It

When a disaster occurs, fast data access is crucial to reliable recovery. To facilitate speedy data restoration in the event of a major data loss event, we offer Recovery-as-a-Service. At your request, we can ship a drive containing all of your data overnight. Once the drive arrives, we simply plug it in and restore your data back to its prior state.
