Why You Need Offsite Backup Now More Than Ever

From hard drive failure, hackers, malware, to natural catastrophes, disaster is always waiting around the corner to strike your business and destroy your data. Nearly 80% of small to medium-sized businesses don’t have a reliable backup solution. Having a backup solution for your business is now more important than ever, especially offsite backup solutions.

Natural Disasters

If your data storage solution is only located in one place, you are at risk for damage during a natural disaster. Fire and water damage are all too common, especially winter weather damage.

Hackers, Viruses, and Ransomware

Cyber-attacks are wreaking havoc for businesses everywhere. While hackers and ransomware outbreaks are certainly causing damage and making headlines, old-school malware, spyware, and old-fashioned viruses continue to be among the leading reasons for system breaches and data loss. New and more sophisticated attacks can now actually target and hit your local backups. All the more reason to up your defense systems with offsite backup solutions.

What to Do Next

User Education

Knowledge is power! User education is one of the best ways to keep your data safe. Developing internal processes and plans on data privacy that your company can follow is a great start.

We also recommend taking proactive security measures based on your industry and daily operations. These proactive security measures include:

  • Dual Factor Authentication
  • CyberKnight Security Suite
  • Password Security and Exchange Policies

Offsite Backup

With Braver, you can rest assured that your data is safe and secure with our Ready Vault Offsite Backup and Recovery Service. Our bullet-proof system not only backs up your data as often as every fifteen minutes but in the event of a server malfunction, it can assume the role of that server, while still performing incremental backups. This means your network is still up while your server is being fixed and parts are being ordered. To ensure that your data is protected in any disaster, the Ready Vault device encrypts and can archive your data at our off-site data centers incrementally.
