Why you need Cloud Backup
Every business is dependent on its ICT and the critical files and data they have. This means that the ability to recover from almost any sort of natural disaster, an operational crisis, or even simple data corruption or loss, can be necessary for survival.
This has always been difficult for SMBs. Backup solutions have been difficult to configure and manage, and a truly flexible and reliable solution has tended to be expensive.
Backup solutions often require a large up-front capital layout on hardware and specialised software, taking it beyond the reach of many businesses.
With Cloud Backup, this is no longer the case. You can protect your business without it costing a fortune in time or money.
Features of Cloud Backup
These are some of the advanced features of our Cloud backup service, now within reach of all sizes of business.
- With Cloud backup there is no up-front expenditure on hardware or software. Payment is on a predictable monthly subscription model.
Restore available anywhere
- In a worst case scenario, you will be able to restore your information, files and systems to other locations, and this might save your business in unforeseen situations such as flood, fire or theft.
Different levels of backup
- You can decide whether to back up files, application data (such as Exchange email or SQL databases), or whole computer systems. This makes it quick and easy to restore your data – just what you need.
Archives and versioning
- You can archive files to save space, or comply with any requirements to keep data for minimum periods of time. Sometimes it’s just useful to retain older versions of files for reference or to cover yourself against accidental loss, deletion or file corruption.
Security and privacy
- Our Cloud backup is secure, reliable and private. This is critical when your company’s data is in the Cloud.
- 99.999% uptime
- 24×7 physical security on the Data Centre
- Your data is fully encrypted to ensure privacy (AES 128-bit, AES 256-bit, or 448-bit Blowfish), further assisting you in achieving compliance standards
- Your data is backed up to devices hosted solely in the UK
- Our Data Centre is ISO 27001 certified
An automated process with support
