Why Do You Need to Back Up Your Data?

Your business data is the lifeblood of your company and the amount you are collecting and storing is growing all the time. Imagine the impact if you lost a day’s data, a week’s data, a year’s data, due to inadequate or infrequent back-up processes. What would happen—could you recover?

Why Do You Need to Back Up Your Data?

  • Simple Recovery. People make mistakes and frequently. Emails containing viruses are accidentally opened every single day. There’s no reason to stress about the issues if you have frequent backups to restore when you’ll need them most.
  • Audits and Taxes. Tax authorities are notorious for audits. It’s important for companies to maintain financial and accounting data for tax purposes.
  • Archiving. Backed up information streamlines the development of archives. With digital information, company history is in the making.
  • Data Loss Prevention. We’ve all heard about or experienced a tragic loss of data. The main reason for data backup is to save important files if a system crash or hard drive failure occurs.

How Can Data Be Lost Unexpectedly?

  • Computer Crashes
  • Virus/Malware Infection
  • Hard Drive Failure
  • Theft
  • Physical Computer Damage

Benefits of a Managed Backup
