Things happen. A storm hits your city or technology fails from age or lack of upkeep. Or perhaps worse, a cyberattack breaches your system and holds your data hostage for ransom. Any number of threats could steal your data from under your care, and it’s our job to ensure that regardless of external factors, you can always retrieve it.
With First Column IT’s disaster recovery & data backup for Virginia, Maryland and DC, we maintain thorough backups at regular intervals to ensure you have the latest version of your data on the back burner at any given time. We also ensure that your data is protected by advanced encryption and threat monitoring to safeguard it from unauthorized access.
ADVANCE YOUR BUSINESS
Although compliance is there to protect you and your clients, it can be catastrophic should you ever fail to be compliant with your regulatory body. Our team of compliance experts is fluent in the latest requirements in CMMC, HIPAA, PCI-DSS, FINRA, GDPR, DFAR, SOX, and more.
Without your data, how would you operate your business? We protect your data with non-disruptive backups to multiple locations and ensure that you and your team have a plan in place should a disaster take your business offline for any reason.
We go beyond the basics of firewall, anti-virus and intrusion prevention services (IPS) to ensure you have multiple layers of ongoing protection beyond what most of our competitors provide. Because if your security offers only a single point of protection, you’re more vulnerable to breaches – and that just doesn’t work for us.
The password - as an adequate security measure - is long dead. In 2022, about 30,000 websites are hacked each day and 64% of companies worldwide have suffered at least one form of a cyber-attack. Two Factor (2FA) deployed for all entry points including workstations, terminal servers, Office 365, and VPN is critical to protecting your valuable data!
