This week we will be going in depth about offsite backup and how badly you need it for your business. Studies show that 60% of companies that lose their data will shut down within 6 months of the disaster. With current ransom ware running wild we take backup very seriously and want to equip you with the tools necessary for protection Today we will be talking about backing up your “most important, can’t operate without” data offsite and how your business can be affected if it is not properly backed up.
Here at Kitsap Networking Services, Inc. we partner with the leader of business backup who is HIPAA and government compliant. Our offsite backup service costs $1.00 per GB (with a 25 GB minimum). With online backup you always have a backup, whatever happens. Every day your backup is automatically and immediately stored safely outside your business. Even if a fire or burglary were to happen, you can easily get your data back with the click of a button. Online backup runs quietly in the background so you do not have to worry about switching out external hard drives, or having to take the time out of your day to make sure that your receptionist clicks the button to back up your data while closing. Using online backup brings considerable cost savings since you do not have the cost of tape streamers, tapes, backup software and servers or the time you need to backup. The backup is always ready to restore. You can restore your data at any time and at any location with a simple press of a button. Your data is automatically encrypted before it is sent over the secure Internet connection. The data remains stored encrypted. This is your data only for you to read.
Data backup is an often overlooked aspect of running a small business. With businesses increasingly relying on home computers and operating online, it is now more important now than ever to have a secure backup system in place. Many people take unnecessary risks with the safety of their information. This is particularly dangerous for small businesses, because data loss can cause huge problems and in some cases will result in a loss of revenue.
