APC - Uninterruptible Power Supplies UNPROTECTED POWER - RISKY BUSINESS

The final piece in the jigsaw of a secure, reliable and recoverable business network is power protection. Power supplies are never absolutely reliable. All businesses experience occasional power cuts and power surges are a frequent occurrence. Even buildings with clean power lines often have points of vulnerability such as a modem for bank access. The modem can provide a point of entry for a power surge derived for example for a lightning strike on the telephone system. This surge can be instantly transmitted throughout your network across the data cables.

Workstation Protection DANGER

Power failures and power surges can damage your computer equipment -most PC failures we encounter are a direct result of power problems. Perhaps even more important, power problems can corrupt your data. The greatest risk occurs when a power surge or failure coincides with a disk write operation on the server. We are regularly called in to new clients to recover corrupted data from an unprotected server that has failed to restart after a power cut.
