Far too many businesses take risks when it comes to securing their data. Some do not take a backup altogether. So, what are the implications of a corrupt hard drive or backup failure? Well to put things into perspective here are some alarming facts. According to an industry study by The Diffusion Group, who surveyed small business organisations, 60 percent of companies that lose their data close down within six months of the disaster and a staggering 72 percent of businesses that suffer major data loss disappear within 24 months.
The results of a similar study carried out by the British Chambers of Commerce found that 93 percent of businesses that suffer data loss for more than 10 days file for bankruptcy within one year, 50 percent immediately.
So what can be done? Using a reputable cloud based backup provider could be an excellent idea. Valusys offer a solution called SafeData and it does what it says on the tine. ‘Keeps your data safe’. At scheduled times of the day incremental backups are taken of your critical data and sent via a military grade encrypted transfer over the internet to a secure location. Therefore if your systems fail all we need to do is hold onto the data and seamlessly transfer it back to your new hardware when the time is ready. And with prices from as little as £0.10p per GB per month the total cost of ownership can far outweigh the risk to your business.
