What do a fire, a bad actor, and a crashed server have in common? They can all affect data stored on your computer. Losing your data is a terrible thought, and while you can’t predict a disaster, you can certainly prepare for one. Here’s what you need to know about protecting your company’s information with off-site data backup.
Off-site data backup is a means of storing backed-up information in a geographically different location than your company’s main base of operation. Backed-up data can be stored physically or virtually off-site by your IT provider.
Additionally, an off-site data backup provides an extra layer of security against a hardware loss. This added security method has proven to be invaluable for disaster recovery if your office is damaged or destroyed.
There are four main ways a company can lose data: malicious attacks, natural disasters, hardware failures, and human error.
These situations are unpredictable, and regular on-site backup can still leave your data vulnerable. If you want to ensure your company is truly protected, off-site data backup is the answer.
There are a few different off-site data backup options that can be arranged through your IT provider.
Off-site data backup is a great way to keep your information safe and secure. There are so many unforeseen variables that can leave your company at risk. Avoid chance and trust your IT provider to protect your information off-site. The effort will surely be worth it.
