In the last three years, 96% of global IT decision-makers have experienced at least one outage. The average downtime following a ransomware attack is three weeks. And according to ITIC’s 2021 Hourly Cost of Downtime survey, 91% percent of mid-sized and large enterprises say just one hour of server downtime would cost them $300,000 or more—half of whom believe it would exceed $1M.

Data is the lifeblood of any business. Without a reliable and robust disaster recovery plan in place, any unexpected disruption—whether from hardware failure, natural disaster, or a cyberattack—can result in data loss, prolonged downtime, crippling financial losses, and reputational damage.


Disaster Recovery as a Service (DRaaS)

Disaster Recovery as a Service (DRaaS) has emerged as one of the most effective and efficient approaches to disaster recovery in recent years. With the ability to back up all cloud data and applications in a managed data center, the pay-as-you-go cloud service model not only safeguards critical assets, but also ensures rapid restoration, minimizing the impact of disruptions on business operations. In essence, DRaaS simplifies disaster recovery, keeping your business resilient and operational in the face of adversity.


Here are some steps you can take to ensure you’re harnessing your DRaaS solution’s full potential to bolster your disaster recovery strategy and protect your business:


  1. Prioritize your critical assets: Identify and prioritize your organization’s critical data, applications, and systems—and reassess regularly. Not everything requires the same level of protection. By focusing on what’s most important, you streamline your DRaaS strategy and allocate resources more effectively, ensuring the highest level of protection for your most crucial assets.
  2. Define clear RTOs and RPOs: To align your recovery efforts with your business goals and needs, clearly define your Recovery Time Objectives (RTOs) and Recovery Point Objectives (RPOs) based on the criticality of your assets. In doing so, you not only tailor your DRaaS solution to meet the specific recovery needs of your business, but you also ensure it is equipped to deliver the required levels of availability and data protection.
  3. Regularly test and validate: Conduct regular testing and validation of your DRaaS solution, including planned recovery drills and unexpected failover tests. By routinely putting your DRaaS plan to the test, you can proactively identify any potential weaknesses or gaps in your disaster recovery strategy and fine-tune it as needed.
  4. Incorporate automation and orchestration tools: Use automation and orchestration tools to simplify the failover and failback processes. When you automate these critical tasks, you can ensure swift response to disruptions, free of human error, to maintain business continuity.
  5. Continuously monitor and make improvements: Regularly review and improve your disaster recovery plan based on lessons learned from testing and real-world incidents. This iterative approach helps you stay proactive in identifying potential vulnerabilities and adapting your DRaaS strategy to evolving threats and business needs.

Disaster recovery is a critical component of your business’s IT strategy.

In today’s digitally driven world, businesses are becoming increasingly reliant on network connectivity to operate effectively. But with increased connectivity also comes increased risk exposure. Cyberattacks are on the rise, and more businesses are succumbing to security breaches, data loss, and other security-related issues. In fact, cybercrime damages are expected to reach $10.5 trillion by 2025. 

Your ability to protect your network from cyberattacks and unauthorized access while maintaining network performance and compliance with regulatory requirements is not a nice-to-have—it’s essential. With a Network Access Control (NAC) system in place, you can safeguard your network infrastructure and your data while maintaining business continuity.

5 Reasons to Implement a Network Access Control System

NAC is a security solution that restricts access to network resources based on users’ identities, roles, and devices. Today, more businesses are turning to NAC solutions, and here’s why:

  1. Improve security: Cyberattacks are a significant threat to businesses of all sizes. Cyber hackers are always looking for new vulnerabilities that make it easy to install malware, access sensitive data, and disrupt business operations. By preventing unauthorized access to your network to protect sensitive data and prevent malicious attacks, network access control systems provide an added layer of security for greater peace of mind. NAC systems can also be used to enforce security policies that ensure only authorized users can access the network. Even if a cyber hacker gets through one layer of security, they will be faced with additional security measures that make it infinitely more difficult to launch an attack.
  2. Comply with regulatory requirements: Many industries have strict data protection and privacy regulatory requirements—and failure to comply can result in lofty fines and a tarnished reputation. NAC systems enforce security policies that restrict access to the network based on predefined rules, ensuring only authorized users and devices can access the network. Plus, with the ability to deliver greater visibility and control over all devices that connect to the network, NAS makes it easy for you to monitor and manage the access of devices across the network—and automatically remove a non-compliant or malicious device. And with simpler auditing and reporting capabilities, NAS also simplifies auditing and reporting to support various regulations and standards.
  3. Improve performance: Offering a secure and efficient network environment, NAC solutions can help businesses optimize network performance and productivity. As network traffic increases, its performance can take a hit, disrupting operations. By reducing the number of unauthorized devices that connect to the network and ensuring critical business traffic receives priority over non-critical traffic, NAC solutions help to reduce network congestion to boost performance. And with the ability to identify and address issues with connected devices before they create a problem, NAC also improves uptime.
  4. Simplify network management: NAC solutions offer a centralized approach to network security, making it easy for administrators to easily control and monitor access to the network and enforce security policies. By automating the process of identifying and authenticating users and devices, NAC eliminates the need for manual configuration and management of network devices, which minimizes the risk of human error, reduces the workload on IT teams, and improves overall network security.
  5. Boost productivity: NAC solutions ensure only authorized users can access the resources they need, which reduces the risk of data breaches and other security incidents that can lead to network downtime and lost productivity. By providing visibility into all devices that connect to the network, your IT team can quickly resolve issues and enforce security policies, which allows employees to work with confidence and without interruption.

By implementing an NAC system, your IT team can ensure the network is secure, reliable, and always available, while supporting regulatory compliance, network management, and network performance.

At Zunesis, we can help you protect your network infrastructure, safeguard sensitive data, and maintain business continuity with ClearPass from Aruba, a leading provider of NAC solutions that help businesses secure their network infrastructure while ensuring compliance with regulatory requirements. Providing robust network access control with granular role-based policies for authentication, authorization, continuous monitoring and enforcement, Aruba ClearPass gives you anywhere, anytime connectivity while supporting simplified network security operations and enforcing security policies.

 Downtime costs businesses an average of $84,650 per hour.  A natural disaster or cyber-attack can result in weeks of downtime for a business that’s not prepared, delivering a massive financial blow. Even worse, according to the Federal Emergency Management Agency, 40% of small and mid-sized businesses never reopen after a natural disaster, and an additional 25% reopen but fail within a year. These statistics are staggering—and sadly, we’ve seen scenarios like these play out many times with our clients.

The threat of man-made and natural catastrophes is real—and in most cases, it’s something you can’t control. What you can control, however, are the safeguards you have in place to help your business recover when disaster strikes.


Enter Disaster Recovery-as-a-Service (DRaaS).

DRaaS is a pay-as-you go cloud service model that delivers backup services in a managed data center to ensure access and functionality to IT infrastructure after a disaster. It gives an organization a total system backup for rapid restoration of data servers and applications in the event of system failure. By replicating and backing up all cloud data and applications, DRaaS protects data, limits downtime, and shortens Recovery Point Objectives (RPOs) when a disaster happens.


7 Benefits of Disaster Recovery-as-a-Service:


  1. Cost savings: According to Gartner, 55% to 65% of I&O leaders say they overspend in backup and recovery by at least 30%. With DRaaS, you get the same capabilities and reliability as the more costly on-premise DR systems, but in a pay-as-you-go model whereby you only pay for what you use. Plus, with the ability to rapidly recover from a disaster, you stand to save your business hundreds of thousands of dollars—or more—from unplanned downtime or lost data.
  2. Immediate recovery: The longer it takes for your business to recover following a disaster, the more money your business will lose. By backing up your data to a secondary infrastructure, DRaaS offers instantaneous failover, so your business can return to normal operations within minutes—not hours or weeks.
  3. Secure data backup storage: DRaaS offers a multi-layer security approach designed to address most vulnerabilities. Employing the latest security protocols, with frequent patches, multi-factor authentication, encryption, ongoing audits, and more, DRaaS providers ensure comprehensive data security.
  4. Peace of mind: With redundancy for all your critical business information systems, DRaaS eliminates the worry and pressures associated with meeting recovery point objectives (RPO) and recovery time objectives (RTO), while helping you stay GDPR compliant.
  5. Reduced administrative burden: Managing disaster recovery eats up a lot of time for your internal staff—and keeps them in react mode. By outsourcing your disaster recovery to a third-party provider who will manage all DR planning and maintenance activities, you free up internal staff to proactively focus on other critical IT functions, achieve greater levels of productivity, and realize greater efficiencies.
  6. Specialized expertise: A DRaaS provider has advanced expertise in backup, recovery, and data security. With access to a team who knows everything there is to know about implementation, replication, failover, and more, you can unload a heavy and complex burden while letting the experts do what they do best.
  7. Scale on demand: Because you only pay for what you use, not only do you avoid overprovisioning for an in-house solution, but you also get the flexibility to scale up or down as needed. If your needs grow, you can quickly, easily, and efficiently upgrade your service

According to IDC research, businesses are prioritizing resiliency and agility as foundational elements of their IT strategy. They want more visibility, cross-platform control, better data management, and protection from the edge to the core. While consumption-based models are playing an increasingly important role in powering those goals to accelerate digital transformation, many business leaders are hesitant when it comes to Network-as-a-Service (NaaS). Some still think of as-a-service in terms of software, compute, and storage. However, as budgets grow tighter amid an inflationary economic environment, organizations need a better way to predict the ebbs and flows of the network, with flexibility to adapt as business needs change. That’s where NaaS comes into play.

Among the newest as-a-service approaches, NaaS combines­ hardware, software, services, and support in a pay-as-you-go model that delivers network services on a subscription basis. Allowing users to consume network infrastructure through flexible OpEx subscriptions, NaaS helps businesses shift their focus from managing their architecture to driving business outcomes.


If you haven’t transitioned to Network-as-a-Service yet, here are five reasons why you should:


  1. Cost savings: Network-as-a-Service allows you to acquire the network you need, when you need it, to avoid overprovisioning—in a pay-as-you-go OpEx model. Because you’re not locked into expensive infrastructure and rigid contracts, Naas allows you to more predictably manage costs and align budgets to business priorities. Additionally, with insights into all aspects of usage, including power, capacity, bandwidth speeds, and service levels, you can make more profitable financial decisions about workloads and upcoming projects.
  2. Security: As the prevalence of data breeches and ransomware continues to soar, enhancing network security is crucial. With proactive network monitoring, preventative maintenance, and real-time insights into network performance, the NaaS model offers enhanced network infrastructure protection with enterprise-grade security. With that, any nefarious activity can be immediately identified—and patches can be applied to address the breech before it becomes a problem.
  3. Performance and Productivity: Network-as-a-Service ensures your network operates efficiently by assessing traffic volume and making necessary adjustments. A better performing network means less downtime and greater staff productivity. Additionally, by outsourcing the full lifecycle of your enterprise network deployment, day-to-day operational management, upgrades, monitoring and troubleshooting activities to a NaaS partner, you free up your internal IT resources to focus on business-enabling tasks that add measurable value.
  4. Keep up with the pace of business: NaaS provides the financial flexibility to shorten planning cycle times and the agility to keep pace with changing conditions. By ensuring your network technology is refreshed as needed to support new workloads and changing requirements, a NaaS model makes it easy to scale your network as needs change.
  5. Environmental impact – NaaS offers a more sustainable way to consume network technology. With the ability to rent sustainable networks from a NaaS provider on a subscription basis, you don’t have to worry about where and how to dispose of old equipment. Plus, NaaS providers are committed to sustainable ‘reuse and retirement’ practices—and also well versed at configuring networks that are purpose-built to optimize energy consumption. By turning to a NaaS solution, you are making an environmentally sound decision that reduces your carbon footprint.

As market conditions continue to change at a rapid clip, your business needs to be one step ahead of your competition. With NaaS solutions from Aruba, Zunesis can help you move from reactive network management to a proactive approach that uses the network to deliver innovation and power profound business outcomes.
