IT Services | January 25, 2018

At Express Computers, we know that staying ahead of the curve when it comes to business continuity tech trends can make all the difference for protecting your business. That is why our team of IT experts want to help you keep up with the latest business continuity tech trends for 2018.

1. Ransomware Protection

Everyday ransomware is becoming uglier and more sophisticated than ever before, and the attacks themselves are becoming more complex. Experts believe that, as the market driving ransomware development continues to grow, future ransomware attacks will be used more often for treacherous cybersecurity breaches (data scraping, fund transfers, etc.). Experts also believe that these attacks will be delivered with increasingly frightening threats. The best step that any company can take against the looming threat of ransomware is to be proactive about adding ransomware protection into their data backup systems.

2. Disaster Recovery Services

Disaster recovery services used to be a cost-effective solution for businesses looking to safeguard their data with the best disaster-recovery technologies available, without having to install and manage it themselves. Today, due to the growth of virtualization and cloud computing, disaster recovery services have become a smarter, more cost-effective solution for everyone. Disaster recovery services work to back by a business’ environment in a way that can easily be recovered. This tech trend for 2018 clearly shows that more and more businesses will begin to shift away from in-house IT departments in favour of outsourcing their data recovery services to highly skilled outside IT experts.

3. Hybrid Cloud

In 2018, many businesses will begin to move towards utilizing a hybrid cloud system that combines the benefits of both on-site and in the cloud data protection. Hybrid cloud systems work to provide an extra layer of protection against on-site disasters, such as failing servers or a fire. With the help of hybrid cloud computing, a business’ data will be stored safely in the cloud, waiting to be recovered from anywhere at any time. Since not all hybrid cloud systems are created equal, it is important to ensure that you are utilizing IT services that will hard to ensure that your data is properly backed up at all times.
