Ransomware is a devastating cyberattack where criminals hold a company to ransom to regain access to their mission critical data.

For a real-life scenario, read our case study below, which shows how we worked together with Veeam to proactively prevent a housing association from suffering a major disaster and debilitating downtime following the cyberattack.
Recovering your business when you need us most
Disaster Recovery as a Service (DRaaS)
Covenco365’s DRaaS solutions are built to mitigate against downtime and remove the complexity of our customers having to recover critical applications themselves. We are not just offering a simple ‘backup to the cloud’ service, but a complete and comprehensive local backup, offsite replication and full disaster recovery service which your business can rely on should the unthinkable happen.
In today’s digital and always-on culture, businesses need to continue to operate 24/7/365. When downtime is not an option and your Recovery Time Objective (RTO) is measured in MINUTES, you need to take a serious look at a serious solution, ‘High Availability’.
Traditional disaster recovery solutions tailored to your business requirements
Ship to Site
Employ Covenco365’s Ship-to-Site Recovery solution in the event of a disaster and our team of technical specialists will install replacement IT infrastructure at your designated site.
This service is typically deployed in the case of a technical disaster where your servers may be unable to function but the computing environment itself remains largely unaffected. It is also highly effective for clients with multiple sites, one or more of which could be designated as a recovery location.
The Dedicated Disaster Recovery service is designed for businesses requiring faster recovery time objectives (RTO) and an absolute guarantee that recovery infrastructure will be available, even in the event of multiple simultaneous invocations.
Disaster Recovery equipment is allocated to a client on a 1:1 basis, i.e. their recovery environment mirrors their production environment and all equipment is for their exclusive use. The DR equipment can be permanently installed at a customer’s location, or at a Covenco365 recovery centre and is available for them to test/restore 24/7/365.
Relocatable / Mobile
Covenco365 will deliver a fully equipped mobile computer room with all necessary systems to enable you to deploy your backup media and re-establish operations, with minimum downtime. To ensure maximum efficiency this solution is rehearsed and tested annually.

Puma UK Ltd
Absolutely amazed by the speed of the recovery: less than half a day! Previously it was taking a day and a half. Your technical consultant dealt directly with our application support provider to activate our ERP licensing. Could not ask for better service
We have used Covenco for many years now. Part of the reason why we keep renewing with them is the customer focused relationship which Covenco have. For Disaster Recovery, testing is key to ensure you have a viable platform. I have always found the team at Covenco to be very helpful and flexible during our test days. In addition, the support we get from the team for our backup software installation is excellent, with rapid responses.
