FORT LAUDERDALE, Fla., June 4, 2013 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- JDL Technologies, a wholly owned subsidiary of Communications Systems, Inc. (Nasdaq:JCS), is helping businesses prepare for an active 2013 Atlantic hurricane season by offering backup and recovery management services as part of the JDL TechWatch Managed IT Services program as well as no-cost disaster recovery assessments.

Information is the engine that drives business, and its value lies in an organization's ability to access it as needed. When data isn't backed up and tested regularly it may be impossible to recover, and consequences can be severe. Seven out of 10 small businesses who suffer a major data loss close their doors within a year, according to PWC.

As the Atlantic hurricane season begins, smart businesses are assessing and testing their preparedness plans to ensure that vital information remains available. Primary objectives should be ensuring that data is backed up and available offsite, current application versions and software patches are installed, and employees, especially IT staff, know what to do in the event of an extended outage.

Any business who doesn't feel properly prepared can download guidance online, or reach out to information technology experts for assistance. JDL Technologies engineers bring more than 300 years of technical experience and 115 certifications to client engagements.

"The JDL TechWatch Managed IT Services program is designed to keep your network operating at peak performance and your data readily available," said Scott Fluegge, vice president and general manager of JDL Technologies. "While this is important year-round, it's especially vital to Florida businesses during the next few months."

JDL TechWatch Managed IT Services clients include leaders in public and private education, construction, transportation and manufacturing, healthcare and other industries.
