Breakthrough Disaster Recovery Package From CMIT Solutions Provides Peace Of Mind For Small And Medium-size Business Owners
CMIT Guardian Diminishes Damage from Wide Range of Unexpected Computer Crises
March 27, 2008 // Franchising.com // Austin, Texas — CMIT Solutions, a leading information technology (IT) solutions provider for small and mid-size businesses with nearly 100 franchise locations nationwide, today announced the release of CMIT Guardian, an advanced, comprehensive suite of services designed to protect computer systems against unforeseen disruptions. From natural disasters and destructive viruses to criminal theft and damage, a number of potential problems can destroy a company's computer system.
"With virtually every American business reliant on computer technology, expecting the unexpected has become a key to protecting the ongoing operations of a business," said Jeff Connally, president and CEO of CMIT Solutions. "CMIT Solutions understands the challenges many companies face with technology issues day in and day out. We are excited to provide small and medium-sized businesses with a level of 'disaster recovery' capability that was previously available only to much larger companies."
Available now, CMIT Guardian is an affordable flat-rate* IT disaster recovery and data protection plan that safeguards important computer files. Among the many benefits to businesses, the most important is that when disaster strikes and office computers are unavailable CMIT Guardian provides business owners and their employees the ability to work with their data from any computer with an internet connection.
The package's basic offerings include disaster recovery planning and secure offsite backup of computer data, programs and equipment. CMIT Guardian is customizable according to the needs of individual businesses and industries. For companies operating in regulated industries that require data archiving, such as the medical and legal fields, CMIT Solutions through its CMIT Guardian package provides expertise in adhering to the established standards and insuring that businesses stay compliant as regulations evolve. In addition to the basic "Secure" service, two other CMIT Guardian plans, "Plus" and "Ultra," include:
- Onsite network-attached storage device for onsite protection and backup (Plus and Ultra)
- Server redundancy to keep mission critical applications running even if servers are not (Plus and Ultra)
- 24/7 completely managed solution (Plus and Ultra)
- Data archiving for compliance (Ultra)
- Email protection with archiving, insuring that e-mails are saved and received despite loss of hardware (add-on)
- Anti-spam e-mail protection (add-on)
- Network security auditing providing protection against hackers (add-on)
"As the IT department for many small and mid-size businesses ranging from five to 99 computers, we have seen demand rise for emergency planning," added Connally. "Businesses can be shut down or destroyed overnight and without critical contingency planning, data backup and ongoing protection, owners and company leadership are taking a risk with their future."
CMIT Guardian is the second managed IT (ongoing, flat-rate) services package offering from CMIT Solutions in response to changing needs within the small and mid-sized business community. Unveiled about a year ago, CMIT Marathon keeps businesses running with services such as network and server monitoring, remote access and support and help desk services for end-users.
*Prices for CMIT Guardian vary by market and by plan.
