How to prevent IT outages from disrupting your business

    March 23, 2020

    IT failures can leave companies frustrated. But this mood is nothing compared to the financial ramifications.

    According to Gartner, IT outages cost businesses an average of $5,600 per minute, which equates to over $300,000 per hour. And it gets worse.

    As IT becomes increasingly complex, you must be mindful of the constant threat of disasters like hurricanes, cyberattacks and even infectious disease outbreaks, all of which create more opportunities for failure.

    Fortunately, there are proactive measures you can take to prevent disruptions rather than waiting until an issue occurs to act.

    Follow these steps to prevent IT outages from disrupting your business.
