Backup and Disaster Recoverybusiness data backup

Your business needs to rely on immediate and available data, especially those who work in regulated industries. The types of business data critical to your operations include tax information, sales records, customer databases, supplier contracts, accounts payable and receivable, intellectual properties, and much more. It is common for many employees to back up their data in one place, such as USB drives, CDs, and external hard drives. Worse, some may even rely on their computer hard drive as a sole source of storage. Unfortunately, these methods of storage and backup are faulty and are vulnerable to business data loss.

What events cause business data loss?

  • Hardware/software failure
  • Accidental deletion
  • Viruses/malware
  • Theft
  • Disasters (fires, floods, power outages)
  • Accidental formatting of hard drive, USB drive, and/or SD card

How do businesses lose money from data loss events?

  • Lost revenue
  • Exposed sensitive customer information
  • Lost productivity
  • Lost valuable projects
  • Regulatory penalties
  • Lost business

To prevent the above scenarios, we recommend business data backups to an onsite and offsite location. For example, Veeam Backup and Replication can archive your information to an onsite device dedicated to disaster recovery and offsite to a cloud storage provider, such as Windows or Amazon. If a disaster strikes, you can access your data from the cloud and resume your work on another device. Plus, the latest backup methods use sophisticated methods of encryption so unauthorized individuals cannot access your confidential business data.

SwiftTech Solutions can set up a plan for backing up your business data. We will ensure your solution suits your company’s needs and budget. You can call 877-794-3811 or email for a free consultation.
