The advent of modern technology has made businesses increasingly dependent on computers and the internet. From storing confidential data to making sales pitches - your business requires computer systems for almost every task. Moreover, you likely use internet-based communication systems to communicate with your employees, clients, and other stakeholders. Unfortunately, the growing dependence on technology also puts you at the risk of cyberattacks.
Whether you’ve got your services hosted on a local or cloud server, IT outages can occur at anytime. While cloud servers are safer bets as they usually encounter little downtime incidents, they may falter still go down when you least expect it. For all you know, a massive DDoS attack can cripple multiple cloud servers at a time and lead to significant downtimes. The February 2017 outage of Amazon Web Services (AWS) S3 was one such incident.
