Three Reasons for Online Remote Backup

Let's face it, our computers are a bigger part of life than ever before.  We shop, work and play using computers.  They've replaced stereos, encyclopedias, even the mailman.  They've become journals, photo albums and canvases for our art. 

But computers aren't perfect.  Files become corrupt, motherboards malfunction, CPUs call it quits taking our precious data with them.

The best defense is a backup data plan.  Backing up data is vital for businesses; lost information can cause a major crisis or worse, lead to business failure.  Individuals who don't backup computer data run the same risk.  While this may not cause financial ruin, it can certainly be frustrating and heartbreaking.

Online remote backup has risen in popularity the last few years. For a reasonable fee all types of businesses are entrusting their data to travel across the Internet and storage of that data in a remote location. Whether this is because of the rise in terrorist threats or the further developments of encryption and security is debatable. For whatever reason, online remote backup services are popping up all over the technology landscape and for three solid reasons.

Online remote backup has advantages over traditional backup solutions, its security features are often better than most in house data security and it can mitigate risks and threats to your critical data.

1. Online Remote Backup Advantages

Backup and recovery plans can be expensive to invest in. There is the cost of hardware, the cost of the software, and the cost of hiring trained employees to handle the process. In addition there is the time, which equals cost, of performing the backup process. Depending on the amount of data your company warrants as critical to backup and the amount of data you generate on a daily basis the time for backup can be extensive. Online remote backup can reduce this cost dramatically.

Through its automated process, its need for little or no additional investments, and the quick and easy availability for data recovery, you should see immediate results in your bottom line.

2. Online Remote Backup Security

In house backup plans can sometimes overlook the obvious need for security. Many do not see the need to secure the backup data when the data is kept inside their own walls. There are statistics that speak to the need to do so. Employees often perpetrate damage, destruction, and loss. Curiosity or revenge can push people to enter an arena they normally would not go into. Data can draw this type of response. Protecting and securing your data has a lot to do with protecting your employees.

When one employee has committed a crime, everyone is subject to questioning. It does not make sense to leave the door open and online remote backup can close that door.

Online remote backup sends your data encrypted with a key only you hold. The backup process cannot be initiated except through authentication. You will know who requested the backup because you have identified and authorized certain people to do so and a log will tell you who performed the backup. In addition, once the data has arrived to the remote location, You should have the added security any online remote backup service would provide along with trained staff and a 24/7 customer service policy. Can you say the same for the backup data located in your office?

3. Online Remote Backup Mitigates Risk

Online remote backup data is sitting on a server in a far away place. Your connection is the Internet and only through authentication and authority can someone download or retrieve the data. The data is not open to your network, therefore technical disasters cannot affect the data. It stays clean and trouble free until you solve your technical issues, human disasters, or natural disaster. When you see the need to recover, your data is safely waiting for you, unharmed and clean from the risks and threats at hand.
