Disaster Recovery

These could range from natural disasters and hardware failures to cyberattacks, data breaches, and human errors. The primary goal of disaster recovery is to minimize downtime and data loss. CNT regularly review, update, and test their disaster recovery strategies to ensure their effectiveness in safeguarding against unforeseen events.

Case Study Backup Health Check

Case Study: No backup storage or quota

  • Inefficient Retention Policy: The retention policy was not optimized, resulting in older backup versions being retained longer than necessary, further consuming disk space.

  • Unoptimized Backup Data: Some backup settings were causing an excessive increase in backup file sizes, contributing to the disk space exhaustion.


  • Refined Retention Policy: They modified the retention policy to ensure that older backup versions were deleted in a timely manner, freeing up disk space for new backups.

  • Fine-tuned Backup Settings: The IT team optimized backup settings, including compression and deduplication, to reduce the backup file sizes without compromising data integrity.

Antivirus and anti-ransomware health check and updates

Antivirus and anti-ransomware health checks and updates are critical processes to ensure the effectiveness and reliability of these security solutions in protecting computer systems from malware threats

Maintenance that we perform​

  • Summary Overview The dashboard usually starts with a summary overview, providing a high-level snapshot of the current security status. It might include information on the number of protected devices, threats detected, blocked attacks, and other key security metrics.

  • Security Alerts This section highlights any active security alerts or critical events that require immediate attention. Administrators can quickly identify and respond to potential threats from this part of the dashboard.

  • Threat Detection and Prevention The dashboard may display real-time information on the threats that have been detected and blocked by Sophos security solutions. This can include details about malware, ransomware, viruses, and other types of cyber threats.

  • Endpoint Status Sophos endpoint protection, the dashboard might provide an overview of the status of protected endpoints (e.g., computers and servers). This can include information about security updates, malware detections, and device compliance.

Real-Time Protection

The health check ensures that real-time protection is enabled and active. Real-time protection monitors system activities and incoming files to prevent malware and ransomware from executing or infecting the system

Software Updates and Patches

Keeping the antivirus and anti-ransomware software itself updated is essential. CNT regularly monitors software updates and patches

  • Scan Scheduling and Configuration Admin can schedule scans to run at specific times or intervals. This helps ensure that regular scans are performed without manual intervention.

  • Quarantine Review Quarantine is a safe area where suspected malware and ransomware are isolated. The health check includes reviewing items in quarantine to verify that legitimate files have not

Case Study Antivirus Health Check & Updates

  • Problem Sophos Intercept X Endpoint security software has identified and flagged a potential security threat on a server.


After Sophos detects a threat, Sophos Intercept X Endpoint will act:

  • Quarantine If the threat is identified as malicious software, Sophos may automatically quarantine the suspicious file or application. Quarantine isolates the file from the rest of the system to prevent it from causing further harm.

  • Cleanup For some threats, Sophos may attempt to clean and disinfect the affected files or system components to remove the malware or harmful elements.

  • Blocking If the threat is related to network-based attacks or malicious websites, Sophos may block access to suspicious content to protect the user from potential harm.

Windows Server Updates

Regularly updating your Windows Server helps protect against

  • Security vulnerabilities

  • Ensures the latest features and improvements are available

  • Keeps the system running smoothly

Maintenance that we perform

  • Security Updates Security updates are released to address known vulnerabilities and weaknesses in the Windows Server operating system. These vulnerabilities could potentially be exploited by hackers and malicious software to compromise the server's security. Microsoft releases


These updates as a response to emerging threats

Case Study Windows Server Updates

Many Windows updates are missing from the server it could lead to:

  • Security Vulnerabilities Outdated software can contain known security vulnerabilities. Hackers and cybercriminals often exploit these weaknesses to gain unauthorized access to systems, steal data, or carry out other malicious activities.

  • Malware Infections Without the latest security patches, the system becomes more susceptible to malware infections, such as viruses, ransomware, and spyware. Malware can cause data loss, system damage, and compromise sensitive information.

  • Performance Issues Updates often include performance improvements and bug fixes, which can enhance system stability and responsiveness. Not updating Windows may lead to performance degradation or instability over time.

  • Software Compatibility Problems Newer software applications and drivers may not be fully compatible with an outdated operating system, resulting in compatibility issues and potential crashes.

Updated System:

After logging in, the user will have access to the updated version of Windows with the latest improvements and security updates. The system should now be more secure, stable, and potentially have new features or enhancements.

Storage Health Check

Storage Health Check involves assessing the overall health, performance, and reliability of a storage system. This process is crucial for identifying potential issues, optimizing storage performance, and ensuring data availability.

Maintenance that we perform

  • Summary Within the health monitoring section find information related to storage health. This includes details about RAID arrays, individual hard drives, and any storage controllers present on the server.


(Summary Health Image)

  • Check Raid Status We monitor RAID arrays health present on the server​​

Case Study Disaster Recovery

  • Problem A natural disaster in the form of a severe thunderstorm strikes the region where Client Company is located. The storm causes extensive damage, including lightning strikes that result in a power surge and electrical fires.

  • Impact All data stored on the on-premises servers is at risk of being lost or corrupted due to the electrical fires and water damage from firefighting efforts.



Disaster Recovery Plan

  • Data Transfer Once a new physical server arrived on-site, the cloud backup was used to transfer all the data and configurations from the cloud-based image to the new server. This ensured that the new server was an exact replica of the original one
