A recent survey shows that 37% of IT professionals suffered an unplanned outage in the past 12 months, with 32% saying those outages had lasted more than four hours.
The cost of network downtime averages R120 580/hour for small businesses (1-100 employees) and over R1.2-million/hour for medium businesses (100-1 000 employees).
