Losing your power or Internet connection can bring your workday to a complete stop. You can’t process payments, access files, or use your email and your employees lose access to essential resources. Business disruptions can result in thousands of dollars in lost revenue and tank end-user productivity. Moreover, it can impact customers who rely on your business. Intangible costs, such as reputational damage, may have lasting effects on your company and put your bottom line at risk. Fortunately, our Net Assurance Internet backup service automatically kicks in during an unexpected power loss.

Why Your Business Needs Net Assurance

What Causes Outages?

Losing power or Internet may seem unlikely, but interruptions happen. It may take time to find the source of the problem and get repairs started. Business leaders use backup Internet solutions as part of their disaster recovery efforts as it supports business continuity. Safeguard your company against these five common causes of outages.

1. Weather

Thunderstorms, hurricanes, tornadoes, snowstorms, wildfires, and more can cause Internet and power loss, resulting in unexpected downtime for your business. Although your office may close during extreme weather events, a failover Internet connection can ensure your nightly data backups aren’t disrupted.

2. Human Error

Accidents happen—especially when it comes to technology. Whether that means misusing hardware or an unplugged cord, human error can cause a loss of connectivity. Fortunately, Net Assurance kicks in to keep your devices connected until you resolve the problem.

3. Equipment Failure

Old or improperly maintained equipment can also cause outages. Additionally, outdated hardware and software may affect your Internet connectivity. A backup Internet solution keeps your small business online even if your router or other equipment fails.

4. Overloaded Networks

With an increased reliance on video conferencing and cloud computing tools, older infrastructure can struggle to keep up. A strained network can reach its limit, resulting in slower Internet speeds or a complete outage. If you lose your primary network connection, Net Assurance can get you back online.

5. Cut Cables

Exterior or interior construction work, landscaping activities, and third-party errors can result in your cable or fiber line being cut. Although it isn’t your fault, cut cables can take hours to fix, leaving your business without Internet service.  A backup connection bridges the gap while waiting on repairs.
