DB corruption after power failure?

Hello friends,

 we had a power issue in one of our sites due to UPS issue, checkpoint 5200 appliance running as a gateway rebooted, it came up without security policy , fw stat - showed as "default policy" and it didn't pass any traffic. It also lost the connection with mgmt server. Resetting SIC didn't help, as when I pushed policy I got error "load on module failed". I had to restore the gateway to factory defaults to get it back working. This was the second time we faced such an issue, earlier with a different site. Worked with TAC, they said some DB corruption and did the same (restored to factory defaults) as a fix. Is there a way we can avoid this kind of corruption ?
