The feeling you get after discovering that your company has been hacked is the worst. First you feel that panicked disbelief, hoping that there is some mistake and you are just seeing things wrong. Then there is that slow sinking in the pit of your stomach as reality hits, and you realize that your business has been ruthlessly violated by some hacker. It is usually pretty soon after this point when the rage sets in. You need your data back, right now. There is nothing more important. Unfortunately, hackers today are so good that sometimes data can be almost impossible to recover, especially when you are relying on the help of frustrating customer service lines that take forever (using the online support would probably be faster … but wait … that's not really an option right now). Luckily, there is one solution that may be your last, best hope. Cloud recovery is usually your best chance of recovering your critical data, if you have taken the initiative to have this essential service setup before disaster strikes.
Chances are that a lot of the services you use every day are actually on huge, public clouds, because they are popping up everywhere. This is great because many of them are free and super convenient, but as a trade off your data might sometimes be compromised. The good news is that there are clouds you can use that specialize in keeping your data safe and easy to recover, recovering in case a hacking does occur. The ideal situation is to use all of the popular cloud services for your personal day-to-day activities, but and have backups of your company's data loaded automatically onto the cloud servers of a company which number one priority is keeping that information safe.
Find a Company That Cares
The key to being able to pull off a successful data retrieval operation is by trusting a company that makes data protection and disaster recovery their specialty. You know that you can trust a company like this to keep your information locked down tight from hackers. This way, if there is a break on your end, they will have all of your data, or at least the most recent copies of it, safe and ready to return to you. This could have the difference between filing for bankruptcy and having your business only be down for a couple of hours. Either way, it is essential to choose a reliable company so that you can feel confident that your business' essential files are safe.
