We Are There When You Need Us

Backups

Having a backup isn one thing, being able to restore from a backup is a whole different thing.

Backups are essential to protect the security of your business.

While modern anti-virus software solutions are good and you have warned all of your people how to recognize Phishing Emails we know that none of these strategies are 100% successful. If they were we would not hear about data breaches and Ransomware attacks on a daily basis.

The 3 Essentials for Backups.

  1. Your backup MUST be monitored on at least a daily basis. Just plugging in a USB drive and hoping for the best is a dangerous way to go. When you desperately need it it’s gut wrenching to discover it stopped working 12 months ago.
  2. You must be able to restore from it. If you have an image backup of your server or a desktop that contains your business critical data, have you ever tried to do a restore to make sure it actually works?
  3. You must have at least 30 days retention. With Ransomware encrypting just a few files every day to contaminate your backups, or a user deleting a critical file you only use once a month, it is important to back at least 30 days to find the files you need.

Backups are not a “one size fits all” solution. Different companies have different needs.
