As a business owner, you understand that your success is linked to the integrity of your databases and broader IT environment. A cyberattack or natural disaster could cause a loss of critical data and impose a big financial burden on your business. In fact, a recent Ponemon Institute report found that up to 50% of small businesses were successfully targeted by cyber criminals in 2016. In order to protect their data, an increasing number of businesses are choosing to move their IT resources to the cloud. However, no two cloud services are alike and even big-name providers can fall victim to well-executed cyberattacks.
On Tuesday, Amazon Web Services was left scrambling after its Simple Storage Service experienced “high error rates” and caused an outage that lasted four hours. Hundreds of thousands of companies across the U.S. were affected. As a result, sites went down, applications disappeared and website runtimes slowed to a snail’s pace. Your business cannot afford to have unplanned downtimes!
