WEBIT Services, Inc., a leading llinois based Managed Technology Services Provider, is pleased to announce the launching of its new WEBIT Early Warning Technology Protection Service.

“With the notable increase in the frequency and severity of destructive storms around the country, we felt that we needed to become as proactive as possible in protecting of our clients data and systems,” said Eric Rieger, president of WEBIT Services, Inc. “Obviously it’s difficult to predict where and when severe weather or other catastrophic events will impact any business but we feel by adding some additional layers of monitoring and redundancy we will have our clients mission critical systems protected and be able to keep them up and running and/or get them back up and running in the shortest amount of time depending on the nature of the crisis.”

WEBIT Early Warning starts with internal technicians monitoring local and national weather and news outlets to determine if there are severe weather events predicted for clients within the next 24-48 hours. If severe weather is predicted, a series of warnings will be issued to clients instructing them what they need to do to be prepared and what procedures WEBIT will initiate should an event impact their business.

Additional layers to the service include redundancy (both onsite and offsite) for mission critical systems as well as detailed disaster planning and training so that all employees of the company are aware of their responsibilities and how to access these systems.
Mr. Rieger finished by saying “The events that recently transpired in Joplin, MO recently were a sobering reminder that we live in a fragile world where at any given moment things can be turned upside down and according to the US Bureau of Labor, 93 percent of companies that suffer a significant data loss are out of business within five years. Our goal with this new service is to not only make sure our clients don’t lose any data, but are actually able to continue functioning through any kind of disaster.”
