Application infrastructure & Security
Every organization faces the possibility of major and minor disruptions of all kinds, from planned events such as IT maintenance and office relocations, to looming emergencies such as extreme weather and epidemics, to sudden disasters like earthquakes, tornadoes and fires. Even a relatively small incident like a failed water main or road construction can have a major impact if it makes it impossible for work to continue at a given location.
While business continuity planning has traditionally focused on failover and disaster recovery for the datacenter, this is only part of the picture. People need access to the applications, data, files, communication and collaboration tools their work depends on to keep the business up and running.
