We all know how crucial it is to have a copy of important information in case the original is no longer available, but it’s all too easy to delay backing up your online data… until it’s too late.
The effect of data loss on your business without a back-up solution in place could be devastating. There are several ways your precious online data could be lost; these include computer crashes, virus infection, physical computer damage, hard drive failure or theft.
Unfortunately, backing-up your files to your own computer hard drive will not protect your information in many of the above scenarios, and it makes sense to have your business data securely saved in a separate location.
There are several ways to back-up your data and the choice will depend on the quantity of information, the systems and the network used. It is important to remember that backing-up is only as secure as the device you’re backing up to.
Files stored remotely online are safe from any damage your computer might sustain, and if something goes wrong with your device you will still have remote access to your information from any computer with internet access. This means files can be quickly and easily restored to your computer from a secure online server. There are a number of basic back-up cloud services that Breezit can set up for businesses as a relatively low cost solution. These options will ensure that all the data from your computers, servers and smart devices is stored securely in the cloud and in the event of local loss of data, your files can be restored easily from the back-up.
As an alternative, Breezit can set up a compact local Network Accessible Server (NAS) that can hold back-up files from one or more computers. Regular back-ups of the data are then uploaded to the cloud. Restoration is straightforward, even if the local copies are completely lost, for example by theft or ransomware.
For data containing sensitive information such as mailing lists, personal account access information, and financial records, it is worth considering encrypted off-site back-up. Breezit offer the world class Redstore powered system.
