BUSINESS CONTINUITY PLAN

Gear 3’s BUSINESS CONTINUITY PLAN (BCP)


 

Gear 3 Technologies, LLC is committed to safeguarding the interests of our clients and customers in the event of an emergency or significant business disruption. This Business Continuity Plan (the “BCP”) summarizes our effort to mitigate risks inherent with unforeseen business interruptions. Gear 3’s comprehensive business continuity infrastructure is designed to enable us to meet our existing obligations to our clients and customers even in the event of an emergency, outage, hardware failure or significant business disruption.

Facilities

Gear 3 houses our servers in a New Jersey based state-of-the-art data center facility utilizing a multi-homed / redundant network with backup power and all our servers also have built-in redundancy. Redundant network connectivity with no single point of failure. Direct connections to all major ISP’s around the world to reach your end users with less network hops and blazing speeds. On-premise video surveillance and security access procedures are in place as well as State of the art HVAC temperature control systems for servers. Diesel power generators are on-site with underground diesel storage for power backup, also advanced fire detection in in place.

Backup

While a redundant infrastructure will protect against many hardware and networking disasters, it does NOT protect against data corruption, loss, deletion, malice acts, security breaches, human errors and accidents. That is why Gear 3 strongly recommends all client’s opt in to Gear 3’s online backup services for futher protection and daily backup of any important data. Backup are stored in different SAS70 data centers in different states, as well as allowing clients to be HIPAA compliant if required. We strongly recommend client’s have a backup recovery test done multiple times per year.

Servers

Server can be configured to client specifications to meet or exceed compliance requirements. Gear 3 can offer load balancers, firewalls, clustering, redundant power supplies, monitoring and high availability. These services are optional and are at the descretion of the client to subscribe to and have us implement.

 

Disclaimer 

Gear 3’s business continuity strategy is designed to enable us to meet our existing obligations to our clients and personnel even in the event of an emergency or significant business disruption; however it is not infallible. The plan is designed to work in many different emergency situations; but these events are, by their nature, unpredictable and it is impossible to anticipate every scenario that could cause a business disruption. Furthermore, although we are confident in our own preparedness, Gear 3 has no control over the various entities that we must rely upon in the event of an emergency.  Our business continuity plans are tested periodically to ensure readiness; yet such tests may not be able to replicate the actual conditions we experience in a real emergency.  This BCP is subject to change without notice.  Customers may obtain a copy of our BCP on our website.  The information contained in this disclosure is provided by Gear 3 for informational purposes only.  Nothing contained herein shall be construed to amend, supplement or otherwise modify any of the terms and conditions set forth in any customer agreement between you and Gear 3 Technologies, LLC.
