your data is a valuable asset PROTECT IT


Ricoh Backup & Recovery Service for SMB

As a small- to mid-size business owner, you understand the importance of safeguarding your assets—from your facilities and vehicles to the health and safety of your people. You also recognize the importance of protecting another increasingly important asset: your business data. After all, in today's mobile and connected world, your operations require access to information when and where it's needed.

But if you're like many SMB owners and executives, you may not be totally confident that you have all the bases covered. If your network goes down due to a fire, flood, natural disaster, hacker attack or even simple human error, your business operations could go down, too. And that can cost you dearly in the form of lost revenues and customers.

At Ricoh, we have a long history of partnering with small and mid-sized businesses and a suite of Engineered IT Services that put world-class expertise and support within your reach. One of our core offerings is Backup & Recovery Services that was designed especially for our SMB customers—and that starts with a careful assessment of what your business needs.

The first step: Ricoh's IT experts help you determine your Recovery Point Objective (RPO)—the maximum length of time that you can lose the ability to capture and access data—and your Recovery Time Objective (RTO)—the length of time it should take your business to recover your systems and data following a disaster or other outage. Next, we collaborate with you to align your RPO and RTO goals with your operations and your budget. Then we implement an on-premise backup solution, show you how to manage your backups and demonstrate what to do if you ever need to recover.

Challenges Addressed

For small and mid-sized businesses, data loss can be a big problem. According to a report by the National Archives & Records Administration in Washington, D.C., 93 percent of companies that lost their data center for 10 days or more due to a disaster filed for bankruptcy within one year of the disaster.

    Although the consequences aren’t always so dire, there are still plenty of reasons for your SMB to consider the Ricoh Backup & Recovery Services:
  • Lack of a formal or effective approach to data backup and recovery
  • Uncertainty about recovery point and recovery time objectives (RPO and RTO)
  • Inability to conduct day-to-day business processes following a serious incident
  • Risk of losing critical customer records and damaging customer satisfaction
  • A lack of time and/or backup expertise among your people
  • Limited IT budget, which can threaten your ability to implement appropriate data protection
