Data Loss – Are you Covered?

data network backup

In today’s world, technology is a key aspect to all parts of your business. From accounting and management to day-to-day communication, more and more parts of your business are performed solely on computers. With the importance of computers and technology, it is critical that every organization has a complete solution to deal with the threat of data loss.

In the past, companies have backed up their data using magnetic tapes or removable disks which were then typically stored off-site. While this a usable method for incrementally backing up data and storing it off-site, the process can be tedious, time-consuming, and requires human involvement. For small businesses without a dedicated I.T. staff, maintaining an up-to-date tape/drive library can be easily overlooked. The next thing you know there is data corrupted and no current backup resulting in data loss.

Small to medium businesses can suffer severe repercussions if their critical data is not securely backed up at an off-site location. A fire, power surge, hardware failure, or even basic operator error can wipe out data. According to International Data Corporation (IDC, the premier global provider of market intelligence, advisory services, and events for the information technology, telecommunications, and consumer technology markets), less than 40% of all small to medium-sized businesses properly and regularly backup data. Can your business afford to lose time attempting to rebuild lost, vital information? How much does such a loss mean in revenue and cost of recovery?

 

In order to prevent such a situation from happening, there are on-site/off-site storage systems available, providing secure copies of all data. When creating a business continuity plan, it’s important to take both on-site and off-site backup into consideration. Datto Backup Systems bring you Intelligent Business Continuity.

 

To quickly recover from hardware failures, viruses, or accidental deletion, it is important to have an on-site backup solution. This solution allows your business to quickly recover from data loss due to common causes.

Off-site backup devices ensure that if physical disaster (fire, flood, theft, etc.) were to strike your business, all lost information can be retrieved from the off-site location. Many off-site backup options use the internet to transfer data back to the business location. It can take weeks or even months to download all of a company’s data from the web. With a Datto backup solution, running your business is only a secure (encrypted) connection away! This allows you to operate your businesses until the system is recovered back to its previous state.
