We all know how important our data is to us, yet backup is an area that is often forgotten. Backing up data on tapes and external hard drives can be unreliable; data is often unencrypted, and the devices are prone to failure, and can easily be stolen or misplaced.

Online Backup, or remote backup, is a highly secure and cost effective backup solution which allows businesses to safeguard their business data using an offsite data centre, and can protect against some worst-case scenarios such as fires, floods, or earthquakes.

Backing up data is vital for businesses; lost information can cause a major crisis, or worse, lead to business failure. Hard drive crashes, spilled drinks, and accidental file deletion can occur at any time and put your company’s future in jeopardy.

As broadband internet access becomes faster and more reliable, remote backup services are gaining in popularity.

Due to its flexibility, online backup is quickly becoming the most popular method of securely backing up for many organisations. It is also extremely reliable, compared to manual forms of backup, such as tape drives. Online backup is different – it’s automatic, secure and easy to use. With data transferred over the internet, it ensures your files and folders are in a secure and remote location, and can protect against some worst-case scenarios such as fires, floods, or earthquakes which would destroy any backups in the immediate vicinity, along with everything else. This guarantees that your data is kept safe and is always recoverable, no matter what happens.
