What would be the cost to your business if you lost your critical data?

Top data-related threats facing SMBs

Data Loss

Loss of data can occur for many reasons including a ransomware attack, flood or fire, theft, over-writing, accidental deletion and user mistakes, malcious activity, disgrunteled employees and failing equipment. Disasters can take many forms.

Cost of Downtime

Downtime occurs when a business experiences data loss or when systems fail. A reliable cloud backup with fast and flexible restore options reduces downtime and thus reduces the cost of downtime. Time to recovery matters.

Unreliable Systems

When information technology fails, businesses can lose access to, amoung other things, their data. With our cloud backup solutions, data can be accessed and used from the cloud or restored from the cloud onto a new device.


Adhering to industry or goverment imposed regulations can be difficult, especially without the proper tools. The location, encryption and retention of data can are important factors in selecting a suitable cloud backup.

What's a Backup?

The copying and saving of data with the ability to restore it after an event of data loss is a backup.  Otherwise identified as the process of backing up. Backing up data to the cloud represents one of the more significant Managed IT Solutions we provide.

Purpose of Backup

The purposes of a backup is two-fold. The first is to recover data after its loss, loss either by corruption, deletion or some other means. The second purpose is to recover data from a previous date and time. Although backups commonly constitute a form of disaster recovery, alone, backups should not be considered “disaster recovery”.

Forms of Backup
  • USB Drive
  • External Hard Drive
  • Cloud Based Backup Solution
  • Hosted Environment
  • Virtual Server

Many businesses are familiar with backing up files to a USB drive or using a cloud storage service. This would probably be done by dragging a file onto a USB drive, cloud file or through the use of automated backups from developers like EaseUs, where pre-selected files are chosen for automatic backup at pre-determined dates and times. Of course, it can be more complicated, depending on the technology infrastructure of the business and the Managed IT Solutions being provided.
