The Need for Off Site Backup
If you’ve ever lost an important document on your computer, you know how frustrating and stressful it can be to try to recreate the information from memory. Now imagine you’ve lost years worth of personal and business data including financial records, client information, photographs, presentations, and reports. This nightmare-inducing thought is a reality for businesses and individuals every day.
How do you make sure such a disaster never happens to you?
Sure, you probably save some files on a flash drive or external hard drive and backup on occasion. Isn’t that enough to keep your documents safe? You can easily access the drive if your computer goes kaput, but this form of backup doesn’t offer comprehensive protection.
It’s a stop gap measure and will do nothing to protect your data if real disaster strikes. This method of backup renders itself useless in case of fire, flood or some other catastrophe. It’s also particularly attractive to thieves. A quick swipe of your laptop and flash drive is all it takes to snag your backups. Yikes.
The Power of Off-Site/Cloud Backup
Thankfully, there’s a better way. Enter off-site/cloud backup. Off-site backups store your files in a separate physical location from your computer. Cloud backup is a type of off-site backup that uses data centers to simultaneously store, safeguard, and provide protected access to your files. With cloud backup, you can reach your data in a snap and protect it from the threat of disaster or theft.
Off-site/cloud backup brings another advantage to the table; it provides for continual backup. We usually only backup to flash drives and external hard drives when we remember. It’s easy to leave a long period of time between backup cycles and miss important files. So, while you may have remembered to back up last year’s summer vacation photos before spilling water on your laptop, yesterday’s presentation may not have made it onto the drive just yet.
To truly protect your files, you need to backup on a continual basis; cloud backup takes the “remembering” out of the equation and gets the job done for you. That means your invaluable data is safe, and you never have to worry about following a backup schedule.
Of course, one of the biggest concerns about off-site/cloud backup is its security. However, it’s useful to first consider the security of your current backup method. Are your files encrypted and managed by IT professionals? Data centers offer a superior level of protection, incomparable to flash drives and external hard drives.
This method of backup doesn’t have to break your budget, either. At SYGNVS Integrated Solutions, we offer offsite backup solutions throughout Louisiana & Mississippi, tailored to meet the needs of your business. You’ll rest easy knowing everything from your company photographs to years of financial reports are encrypted, carefully stored, and safe from disaster. Contact us today to learn more!
