Remote Backup Services
Store Your Critical Data Off-Site
With the rising threats to security, and the ever-present danger of malicious computer viruses, there’s never been a more important time for you to have online backup to ensure your company’s data is safe and secure!
Northeast Computer Services offers Remote Backup Services that work like regular data backup software, but with one important difference. Remote online backup software sends the backup over the Internet to an offsite backup server, it is completely automatic.
Remote Backup services accomplishes several essential steps that are often overlooked or done improperly by other backup software – especially in the regular non-automated backup system. The general definition of “proper” backups requires redundancy. One must keep multiple copies of the same files at different points in their development, called versions. As an example, you should have a different copy of each backed-up file for each backup session. Further, you should be able to easily restore any of your files up to any given point in time. Banks do it, big corporations do it, and so should small businesses.
Remote Backup Online Backups are encrypted for complete security. Tape backups are not generally encrypted, so anyone can read them and gain access to client database, billing records, payroll, tax info, and everything else on computers.
Finally and most importantly – Backups are immediately sent offsite and stored safely away from the clients’ computers and their businesses. This is where almost every business makes its biggest mistake. Even if they do everything else perfectly, backups are of little use if their building burns, or they are unable to physically recover their tapes from the premises. Most small companies who do backups leave the tapes in the building with the computer, where they can be destroyed right along with the computer.
Of course, you can see that this would be a problem in a fire or flood or an earthquake. But it’s also useful in emergencies where businesses are forced to evacuate their offices quickly. Even businesses that do backups and have good, undamaged tapes have to shut down. Remote Backup solves this problem by automatically storing this valuable data at more than one site. So, a business can be back up and running with new computers and their latest data no matter what catastrophe happens.
