BACKUP & DISASTER RECOVERY |  We offer all of our clients a business continuity system for their critical infrastructure. This enables us to stay on top of things if an attack occurs and provide a fast recovery option for unknown threats and failures. With a reliable backup and disaster recovery solution in place, most SMBs will fully recover from a ransomware infection. Our most comprehensive systems can even run a failover of a company’s critical infrastructure from the cloud should their onsite infrastructure be compromised.

EDUCATION & AWARENESS | The human firewall is the weakest link when it comes to cybersecurity in SMBs today. Smart Dolphin clients and community leaders are invited to participate in annual training to help educate employees about cybersecurity risks, new ransomware strains and best practices for spotting phishing attempts, suspicious emails and other security risks.
