4 Reasons why you need Disaster Recovery

Disaster Recovery blog

What is disaster recovery, and why do you need it? IT infrastructure is not fully immune to failures. Because of various types of possible failures, you may lose your data, and, as a result, your reputation. Disaster Recovery is a set of policies, tools, and procedures designed to quickly restore your vital systems and operations to reduce negative impact to a minimum. With a plan in place, you can sleep well at night, knowing that if something happens, you will be back to normal in no time. There are four main reasons why the Disaster Recovery plan is a must-have for every company, small or big. 

1. Hardware failures  

Unfortunately, hardware does not live forever. It tends to fail at some point when its useful life comes to an end. So, there is always a chance of hard disk or internet connection failures. A Disaster Recovery plan will ensure that those failures do not cause service interruption or data loss. The less expensive option would be regular backups. But ideally, both are needed for flawless operations.  

2. Human Errors 

People are not perfect, and they make mistakes. Human error can be as small as a typo or can be as big as deleting a chunk of data. Together with firewalls, anti-virus, and anti-spyware software, Disaster Recovery will protect your systems from any outcomes those errors can cause.   

3. Cyber Attacks 

In the world of advanced technology, we face advanced cyber attackers. They can be very creative with their ways, so it is extremely important to have a Disaster Recovery Plan in place together with Quality Assurance and checking and double-checking practices. Antivirus and spyware are the best partners in this protection game. 

 4. Ensuring Customers Trust 

How you handle any IT infrastructure issues will depend on customers’ trust in you as a company. You do not want to compromise your reputation by not being able to be back and running when customers need your services. Disaster Recovery will get you covered, and your customers’ trust will remain intact if something ever happens. 

The best way to protect your systems is to have a combination of Disaster Recovery Plan, Regular Back-ups, Firewall, and Antivirus software. The price will be too high if something happens, and you will not be able to restore your business.

5g mobile network, will it change IT security?

5g mobile networks

Progress does not stay still. Mobile technologies get more and more advanced. Some of us can still remember the 1G network with only voice capability, and now we are entering the 5G era that is going to digitalize the world.  

What is 5G? 

5G is a new generation mobile network. Many people talk about speed and how fast it is, but it is way more than that. It is capable of connecting virtually everything and everyone including not only devices but machines and other objects.  

Wireless 5G technology is faster, stronger and smarter. It expands the view of mobile network by providing massive capacity, higher performance and unified user experience.  

What are the benefits of 5G 

1. Enhanced mobile use 

5G is designed to respond to traffic growth demands and higher consumer experience needs.  

2. Extensive Internet of things (IoT) 

IoT is a system of computer devices, digital and mechanical machines connected together and able to transfer data between each other over a network.  

3. Critical Communication 

5G is transforming industries with extremely reliable, low-latency channels that can be compared to remote control of critical infrastructure, devices, and machines. 

Security Threats of 5G and How to Respond 

Together with great things, 5G brings great threats. Faster speed and interconnectivity between devices create more entry points for cyberattacks. The attacks can be at the scale we have never seen before. 

Botnet attacks is another great threat. With a new network, those attacks will spread much faster and more effectively.  

Needless to say, to be able to respond to new generation threats we need to have new generation cybersecurity. At Klik Solutions, we know exactly what security regulations are needed for 5G technology, we work with providers to ensure strict cybersecurity rules and regulations are in place. We make certain your business is ready for the revolutionary 5G invasion.

VPN vs VDI vs RDS: Which remote access is best for you?

VPN vs VDI vs RDS

With the current pandemic, nobody can tell precisely when we go back to normal. With people working at home for a while now, you might still be looking for a better remote solution.  

There are a lot of options out there, including Cloud. However, for big and complex industries such as finance, healthcare, and legal, Cloud might not be the best solution. We would suggest looking into these three remote access networks:  

VPN  

The most common of the three is a Virtual Private Network or VPN. Perhaps you’ve heard of VPN when somebody is accessing a blocked app in some country or while traveling. Here’s how it works. It uses a private and secure connection to the server or corporate network to access your business applications.   

Pros

Cons

  • Out of the three, VPN costs less because of the minimal use of hardware.   
  • VPN uses existing hardware on your computer  
  •   VPN can keep your connection secure and encrypts your data. Additionally, some companies that handle VPN have a “no data logging” policy, which means they do not save any of your data    
  • You can access all the applications and data from anywhere at any time, granted that you have a secure connection      
  • Sometimes, the hardware and user’s connection may slow things down    
  • VPN could be hard to set up without the right knowledge. However, you don’t have to worry about it when you have Klik Solutions on your side    
  • If you are not careful, you will still be susceptible to cyberattacks 

VDI  

On the other hand, Virtual Desktop Infrastructure or VDI, provides a virtual desktop on a centralized server, and all users can get the same applications. Each server gets its own operating system, and the users can reconfigure it according to their preference.   

Pros

Cons

  • The cost will be reduced in the long run because you will need less IT and administrative support   
  • Your data will be centralized and your management more streamline     
  • There won’t be a need to update multiple desktops one at a time    
  • Access all the applications and data from anywhere at any time  
  • Expensive upfront cost as you need to invest in the infrastructure, hardware and storage   
  • You will have increased network requirements. For a business that processes documents or spreadsheets, this is not a problem. But if your business requires graphic renderings or video editing, you will need to invest more   
  • A greater chance for a system-wide error. While it may be easier to update or troubleshoot a centralized system, it goes both ways. If there is an image not working properly, it will not work properly for the whole workforce

RDS  

The last one in this list is a Remote Desktop System or RDS, formerly known as Terminal Server. It works by having users log in to the centralized server through the Internet. This way, all users get the same virtual Desktops.  

Pros

Cons

  • You will have a better security, all the data centers where the systems are housed are state of the art facilities and will be protected from theft or loss    
  • It is relatively cheaper than a Virtual Desktop Infrastructure   
  • It will boost productivity by making the business applications accessible from anywhere at any time  
  • RDS should be powerful enough to cover all your business’ needs. If it is not, there could be downtime, which could lead to unproductivity.    
  • It is susceptible to bottlenecks. Depending on the power of your system, the size of the application and the number of people accessing it, bottlenecks can occur and result in reduced performance  

So did you decide which remote system is the best for you? Your answer could be any of the three. Because the decision depends on the applications you use, on the size of the date, and, finally, the budget.

3. Unified management tool

4. Better control 

Have a control over which data is managed by you and which is managed by the provider. It gives you an overall better control over data storage and access.  

5. Improved Speed  

With Hybrid Cloud, you can minimize latency and improve speed for data to get where it needs to be. The architecture can be designed so that critical services are located closer to the end users.   

6. Greater security  

Your IT staff is able to directly control the structure of a private cloud which enables them to manage data across your company and implement strict protocols for crucial assets.
