Whether it’s at the register or on a browser, network disruptions are expensive for businesses. According to a survey, 98 percent of businesses with more than 1,000 employees lost more than $100,000 every hour of downtime. Larger businesses reported that the same amount of time costs them $1 million or more.

 

And it’s not just monetary losses that can affect your business during this downtime. Around a third of companies say that an outage resulted in damage to their brand’s reputation. Luckily, there are ways to get on the offensive and combat the inevitable outage. Building resilient infrastructure designed to scale with demand is a must. Have backup systems and performing routine tests and maintenance are also ways to stay on the offensive on this inevitable occurrence.
