Testing Business Continuity2019-11-05T13:48:09-07:00

In the heat of the moment, your business continuity plan must perform flawlessly.

Testing is an essential part of business continuity that ensures your plan is executable. Using a controlled environment guided by our team of experts, you can strengthen your plans, build business resilience, clarify organizational responsibilities, and guarantee your resources meet your recovery needs.

Our Testing Services At-a-glance

TESTING

Our Testing Options Include

  • QuickShip Test
    For this test, Agility ships the equipment such as servers, desktops, and monitors to your location for three consecutive days of testing.
  • On-site Testing at our facilities in Atlanta or Las Vegas
    • Additional sites in Philadelphia and Sacramento.
  • Remote Site Test
    Agility offers remote mobile testing centers with all necessary equipment in specific locations.
  • Mobile Tests
    Agility can deliver any or all of the components of your ReadySuite solution to your location.
  • Virtual Tabletop Test
    This exercise walks through a simulated, scripted crisis and asks participants to respond and react as the event unfolds.
  • ReadyOffice Test
    Your team can practice working in your ReadyOffice environment for two consecutive days each year.

Through our testing, I feel that Empower has strengthened the strategic side of the Incident Command Structure, allowing for simpler, more streamlined, decision making as well as improving communications capabilities from our Emergency Operations Center to the tactical teams who are assessing and recovering from an event.

TEST YOUR CORE RECOVERY ELEMENTS

Office Space

For a fraction of the cost of maintaining your own hot site, you can have all the accessibility and flexibility you need to restore operations at or near your current location.

Power

Agility has guaranteed access to generators transported directly to your location(s), along with 50’ of cabling, fuel service and scheduling, and expert support through the process.

Technology

To make a recovery as smooth as possible, we advise testing your IT recovery processes using Agility’s equipment. We have several options for that.

Connectivity

By testing voice and data communications over Agility’s satellite link, you can validate recovery connectivity with your key clients, vendors, and remote offices.

CASE STUDY: HONOR CAPITAL

Honor Capital provides insurance premium financing to commercial and private clients. With a footprint covering all 50 states, they must be able to service clients and maintain financial operations and compliance, no matter the interruption. Having a robust business continuity strategy is a foundational component of their overall business plan. Testing this plan annually allows them to ensure they meet the regulations under which they operate while continuing to protect their clients’ interests and the organization’s bottom line.

Every year, Honor Capital performs a full recovery of their central client account database to new hardware at our Atlanta operations facility. They believe that providing Honor Capital representatives across the nation with reliable access to this data is a mission critical function, making this annual exercise a crucial component of their business plan. With the help of our on-site Test Managers, they regularly encounter various opportunities to improve their strategy and build better redundancy through the process.

Testing our program is among the most valuable projects we undertake each year. Testing with Agility Recovery is a simple, effective process and I simply don’t know how you can have confidence in your plan without going through this exercise.
