The Basics of Offsite Backup
The premise of backing up your files is simple. You store your documents and data on a separate flash drive or external hard drive. Easy, right? They’re right there when you need them but apart from your computer in case of loss or damage. Not so fast. This common form of backup presents many challenges and vulnerabilities.
First, there’s the question of security. Just how safe are your files with this method of backup? Not very. They’re easily accessible to anyone who has access (or may secure access) to the area where your flash drive or external hard drive is stored.
This method also does nothing to protect your files from flood, fire, or natural disasters. It’s also incredibly easy to lose your flash drive or external hard drive.
Of course, you’ll have to remember to backup your files on a regular basis. When life gets hectic, this is one of the last things you’ll be thinking of. The potential for human error is huge.
Offsite backup makes matters much easier. This form of backup makes us a web browser interface and high-speed Internet to store your files and folders in an off-site, protected location.
It works by making a copy of said files and folders on backup storage at the storage provider’s system. These files and folders are encrypted, protected by passwords, and monitored by IT professionals in a temperature-controlled data center. Best of all, these files and folders can be automatically backed up on a continual basis or when changes are detected. No need to remind yourself!
Businesses and individuals can access their data through admin consoles on the web. Offsite backup provides immediate access to your files and folder from any location, at any time. Multiple users can be granted access as well.
Cloud Backup: Keeping Your Data Safe
Cloud backup has become an increasingly popular form of data storage, backup, and protection. You’ll find subscription-based storage packages, which offer a range of space and services. This method of backup offers protection, accessibility, and the freedom from purchasing and maintaining extra hardware onsite.
As your data is protected in a remote location, you can still access what you need even in the case of disaster. Offsite backup is an integral part of most disaster recovery plans and effective way to protect financial records, client information, and other sensitive information.
Offsite backup is best employed, monitored, and maintained by trained IT professionals who understand your business’s needs.
