The latest business continuity news from around the world

A survey of US-based managed service providers by Easy Office Phone has looked at the top trends in small to medium sized businesses (SMBs).

Until recent years, there was a perception that disaster recovery solutions were only needed at the enterprise level – the vast majority of SMBs were uninterested in investing the resources needed to develop and test disaster recovery procedures.

SMBs are showing more receptiveness to disaster recovery investments with a focus on building truly innovative business continuity solutions.
