Your data is important to you. What would you do if your computer crashed?

Maintaining multiple copies of your data ensures that your business can survive if technology fails you. But what if there was a fire or flood? It's important that at least one copy of your data is maintained "off site" - in a geographically different location.

The 3-2-1 Backup Rule

3

You should have 3 copies of your data (1 primary copy and 2 backups)

2

Your data should be stored on at least two types of storage media (local drive, network share, NAS, USB stick, etc)

1

Store at least one of these copies off site

By keeping multiple backup copies both locally and off site (the cloud is a great option for this), you further ensure the protection of your data from any unforeseen event or disaster.

Just as important as the 3-2-1 rule is your backup schedule. It’s no use backing your data up once every 6 months, as with a badly timed failure you could lose 5.9 months of data!

Our backup software can back up to any location, cloud or local, on a regular schedule. It does this regularly and automatically, alerting you if there are any problems with your backups.

File synchronisation tools like OneDrive, Dropbox and Google Drive are great, but they are not backup solutions.

How secure will my data be?
