The data you collect as you operate your business is a valuable asset. Whether it be customer information, accounting, inventory or any number of critical information types, remote backup is essential to protect your data.
Data backups are not a new practice however, typical backup systems are not the safest route to take to protect your company’s data. If you were to suffer a break in or a natural disaster such as flooding that made your internal servers unavailable, your backed up data would be useless. If your information is backed up to the cloud, you can be up and running again the same day that you suffer the loss. This can be invaluable for your business’ continuity.
There are several benefits to remote backup services that go beyond the ability to restore your data in the event of a loss.
- • Data backup providers meet stringent conditions to ensure your information is protected and available at all times.
- • Backups done to servers, CDs and portable drives are still vulnerable to loss during a natural disaster or theft whereas your data remains physically safe in the cloud.
- • Files and documents stored in the cloud are accessible from any device with an internet connection.
- • An extra layer of security is added when the files are compressed and encrypted.
- • Storage is scalable; as your needs change you can increase or decrease your storage easily.
- • More cost-effective than investing in infrastructure to handle your backup needs.
It is important to note that while your data is accessible on any connected device, you control who has access. The software employed to operate the remote backup is designed so you can add or remove users and easily assign unique passwords for users of your system. If you have to terminate an employee, you simply remove their log in information and they are no longer able to access your data.
