40%-60% of small businesses never reopen after a disaster.
Why do you need backup / data recovery?
Most of us have experienced that crushing moment of panic where we thought we’d lost a significant
piece of data such as a 3,000-word document or a database of accounts. Every business would prefer to
avoid losing data
at all costs – yet around 30 percent of people have never backed up a device.
Not having backup or data recovery options in place leaves businesses wide-open to a minefield of avoidable disasters.
Data loss can happen at any given moment and in many forms, from hard-drive failures, to cyber attacks, human error, or theft. The wisest strategic decision any business can make is to keep a copy of data or files too valuable to lose on a separate device from which it can be restored in the event of data loss. But a solid disaster recovery plan should be far more than just a routine data backup. So, what backup options do you have?
