Is your current backup unlimited, continuous, automatic, monitored, managed, off-site and encrypted?
A good backup policy is critical for small businesses. However it’s often only after an incident involving a loss of data that this need becomes painfully obvious. A good backup policy will safeguard your vital business data against a variety of problems including hardware failure, damage or theft, software problems, malicious attacks, viruses, and even user errors.
We offer a fully managed and monitored off-site backup service providing continuous and automatic backups for an unlimited amount of data for your desktop and laptop computers for just £10 per month per computer.
This means we’ll set up the backup for you on each computer, manage your backup account and monitor the backups. We can alert you if backups have not been performed recently due to a machine being off, no internet connection, or if the software is turned off, disabled or removed.
The backup process
The backup automatically finds and backs up all your data files on all your drives, including external drives. For large volumes it may take some hours or even days to perform the first backup depending on your internet speed. After that, only changes or new data are backed up. The process is lightweight and continuous so the users may not be aware that the backup is taking place. We can also schedule the backups at times when the computers are not in use, or even reduce the amount of bandwidth being used by the backup process. Your users can also turn off the backup whilst their internet bandwidth is limited or precious – a roaming laptop user on a 3G connection for example.
Your data is fully encrypted before transmission, during the transfer and at off-site data centres using 128 bit encryption techniques. Data centres are managed round the clock with biometric security, redundant power and redundant storage.
File restoration and versioning
We retain multiple versions of your data files for 30 days, so contact us during this period to have previous versions of your data restored. This includes recovering lost files or restoring a file to a previous version. We can perform the restore for you remotely as part of your support contract.
