With both our business and home lives becoming more and more digital, the importance of protecting digital files from loss or attack is greater than ever. Losing your files is way more common than you would think and yet only 1 in 4 people back up their data on a regular basis.
Just look at the stats: 113 phones lost or stolen every minute, 1 in 10 computers infected with viruses each month and, criminal activity aside, 29% of disasters are caused purely by accident. And yet, despite the risks and subsequent importance of safeguarding data, 30% of people have never backed up!
A backup is a simply a second copy of all your important files — for example business documents and emails or family photos and home videos. Instead of storing your digital life in a single place (like your computer), you keep another copy of everything elsewhere, a secure place where your data can be easily accessed and retrieved if the worst happens.
It is possible to back up to external hard drives or USB sticks but these are still subject to accident and loss; even cloud services like Dropbox and OneDrive need backing up as they only have simple recycle bins.
When it comes to full business data backup, Shadowfax have used our experience of market vendors to create two solutions which offer the best mix of performance and value to ensure your data is as secure as possible, protecting you and your business from data loss and potential risks such as accidental deletion, hardware failure or malware/ransomware attacks.
Option 1: On premise BDR data recovery server
This option provides a single data protection device to enable swift restore of data from multiple daily restore points and emergency on premise or data centre virtualisation of your servers to get you up and running with the least amount of downtime to your business. This fully managed solution also syncs with the cloud to provide a robust and complete data security solution you can rely on.
Option 2: Cloud based data backup
This cost effective, yet powerful solution protects your data automatically so you can concentrate on running your business, safe in the knowledge that you are protected from data loss. An automatic cloud backup solution, coupled with a local copy of stored data gives you the peace of mind to know that daily copies of your data are stored both off site and on site for maximum restoration performance.
