Introducing SaviorLabs Backup!
It doesn’t matter how big or small your business is. Systematic backups are essential to secure your company’s network and data. In fact, regular backups may arguably be the single most important step you should take to prevent a network disaster.
Backups help ensure that, regardless of your current security strategy, your data is secure and clean to keep your business running in the case of data loss, attack or even a natural disaster. Here are four reasons why you need professional IT support for backups:
- Failure to Regularly Back Up Information Could Cost You Serious Money – Regular backups are an insurance policy for your business. With so much of the modern business supported by computer networks, a loss of your network data can have a crippling financial effect on your business. A major survey of IT leaders from over 24 countries reported that incidents which led to data loss have increased by 400 percent in the last two years. If you factor in network downtime and data loss, the revenue lost is estimated to be $1.7 trillion. Even security breaches impacting a few files can have a major impact. A recent report from Verizon found that small breaches, involving the loss of 100 files or less, can cost your business between $18,120 and $35,730. Unless you have that kind of money to throw at a preventable problem regularly, then it’s time to implement an effective backup strategy.
- Ransomware Can Strike at Any Time – Another growing trend is the explosion of ransomware which secretly encrypts all your data. You’re locked out of your own network until you pay a ransom to the hackers. Even if you think you have backup right now – don’t assume it is ransomware proof. Small businesses are often prime targets. With a secure backup of your data, you can avoid paying ransom and simply restore your data.
- Without Backups, Natural Disasters Could Put You Out of Business – Unfortunately, many businesses don’t perform proper backups. One study found that 60 percent of small businesses don’t back up daily, and many don’t perform backups at all. Statistics from FEMA indicate that 40% of businesses fail to open after suffering a natural disaster and another 25% fail within a year. The Small Business Administration also finds that a whopping 90% of businesses fail two years after suffering a disaster. Part of these scary statistics has to do with failure to back up data, leaving you starting from scratch.
- Regularly Backed–Up Information Can Provide Peace of Mind – Backups help you rebuild your network regardless of hack attacks, malware, or simple data corruption. Backups allow you go back in time before you experienced network issues and quickly restore your information. Otherwise, important data such as customer financial records, product databases, payroll data, mailing lists and business plans can be lost. If a virus starts destroying your data, failure to restore your system from a clean backup can leave you with network outages that can last days or longer, destroying your customers confidence in the process. It’s no exaggeration that even one incident of major data loss can mean “game over” for you. Backups ultimately allow you to focus your efforts on what delivers value instead of always looking over your shoulder for a network security disaster. With cost-effective backup strategies available from a professionally managed IT service provider like SaviorLabs, there is simply no reason your business should go on operating with such unnecessary risk.
