The Disaster Recovery landscape is changing. In recent years, more businesses than ever have moved to the cloud and adapted to remote workforces, presenting new cybersecurity threats. However, simply saving data in the cloud is not enough to keep your business safe in the event of a disaster.



So, how can businesses strengthen their resilience? With the right Disaster Recovery as a Service (DRaaS) partner, you can ensure you are prepared for the unexpected.

1. Continuous Data Protection

Continuous Data Protection captures and tracks data changes, automatically saving every version of the data as it changes. This is vital in the event of a disaster, as it enables you to recover your data at any point in time, up until seconds before the outage occurs.


The future of backups is true continuous protection. Telefónica Tech DRaaS is powered by Zerto, which offers the fastest recovery time in the industry. If disaster strikes, we’re here to support you and get your business back up and running with minimal downtime.


2. Choosing the right solution

Advancements in technology offer opportunities for businesses to run more efficient and cost-effective cybersecurity operations. However, deciding on the right technology for your business can be a complex process. When it comes to disaster recovery, choosing, implementing, and managing software is not a quick task.


DRaaS pushes this complexity to an external partner who provides a fully managed service and expertise from end-to-end, from implementation to recovery. 60% of large UK businesses outsource their cyber security solutions, citing access to greater expertise, resources, and standards as reasons why.

3. Growth in cloud adoption

Business operations are changing more rapidly than ever before; everything is becoming digital-led, cloud computing is the norm and there are more remote workforces. According to Cloud Industry Forum (CIF), 93% of businesses say that the cloud is important in their digital transformation strategy. However, data security is a rising concern as the more data you move to the cloud, the more protection you need.


As your business transitions to the cloud from legacy infrastructure, your needs change. This means your disaster recovery requirements will also change. It’s important to have a partner by your side who understands this, whether you’ve just started the transition or are already fully in the cloud.

4. Increase in disaster expectancy

Cyber-attacks are becoming increasingly sophisticated, making them harder to prevent. The Cyber Security Breaches Survey found that 39% of UK businesses faced a cyber-attack in 2022.


We’ve seen a shift in the perception of cyber-attacks, and they are now seen as inevitable rather than possible. This has led to increased demand and spending for disaster recovery, however many businesses are seeking a cost-efficient, flexible, and scalable solution. Traditional disaster recovery requires time, technical expertise, and a huge upfront cost, meaning we’ve seen a huge shift in the number of businesses choosing DRaaS in recent years.


Telefónica Tech is here to take this complexity off your hands, with a service that delivers expertise and support from end to end. From implementation and maintenance to rapid response and recovery, our experts are there to manage your disaster recovery at every stage, keeping your business secure in the event of a disaster.


5. Building a sustainable future

Sustainability is a key consideration in all areas of a business, including disaster recovery. We expect sustainability to become even more important in the coming years, so now is the time to start thinking about the long-term sustainability of your disaster recovery.


With Disaster Recovery as a Service, Telefónica manages all back-ups and servers, mitigating the environmental impact that arises from a business purchasing, maintaining, and upgrading its own legacy infrastructure. We provide full flexibility to add or remove services as required, enabling you to optimise resource usage and minimise waste.
