BS5979 Disaster Recovery
If you operate a BS5979 Alarm Receiving Centre you will know how important it is to have a second location in case you lose the ability to monitor at your primary ARC, for business continuity reasons.
ASM can provide you with dedicated desks and operator workspace within BS5979 space to ensure you can continue to deliver ARC services no matter what happens.
Our disaster recovery solutions include comprehensive options for server and alarm handling equipment to connect to your BS5979 disaster recovery desk locations.
Our high security building is also home to a 10,000sqft enterprise class data centre (which we own) with power, cooling, fire and physical protection against downtime. Hosting your equipment within our data centre will immediately provide you with continuation of online data in the event of an outage.
BS5979 Disaster Recovery and Business Continuity
Many companies try and put off deciding on a Disaster Recovery plan for their business as the need for such a plan seems unlikely, but thinking like this can be a disaster in itself. When asking, “Do I need Disaster Recovery?” the answer is should certainly be “yes”, particularly when working with highly accredited industries – which is why we offer purpose built BS5979 disaster recovery rooms within our building.
It’s not always a major ‘Disaster’
Despite the dramatic sounding name, Disaster Recovery, or Business Continuity Planning is a vital part of every business – and can cover things from the major disasters, like hurricanes, fire or flooding, down to the smaller but no less damaging, like power outages caused by careless workmen, or sickness of key personal. All these events have the potential to damage your business and your income to varying degrees and this is where your Disaster Recovery Strategy is so vitally important to you and your customers.
We can provide a full range of advice, with excellent knowledge of monitoring platforms, signalling DR requirements and hosting solutions to build an all-encompassing BS5979 Business Continuity plan with you.
