What is Work Area Recovery (WAR)?
Work Area recovery (sometimes called Workplace Recovery) is the provision of alternative offices that your staff can work from if they are unable to work from their usual location, be that office or home. This could be due to disruption from security, IT or environmental factors, utility issues or any unforeseen event.
Our resilient Business Continuity Centres have UPS power and generator backup and are fully furnished with everything your staff need for their comfort, security, technology and office equipment. This includes on-site support from our experienced business continuity staff and recovery engineers.
When you are contracted to a work area recovery service, we have your desktop images, your data and connectivity all ready and waiting so that when your staff arrive at any of your contracted locations, they can access everything they need, just as they would from their usual home or office. They can access their primary systems if the incident does not impact these, or an alternate clean and separate recovery IT system, if the incident impacts primary systems or access to them. This enables the business to continue operating while primary systems or locations are restored.
More than just traditional workplace recovery services
