Seven out of ten business people will experience data loss due to accidental deletion, system crashes, virus infection, or natural disaster.*

And, according to Contingency Planning and Strategic Research Corporation, 96 percent of work-stations are not being backed up. Data is the lifeblood of your company and ensuring it is available when you need it must be a key component of your overall business strategy.

Many businesses’ backup solutions are ineffective and inadequate because they exist on premises only and rely on data being backed up to another physical device. This causes a resource drain for in-house staff to manage hardware, space constraints, and decisions on what data to save. Plus, in the event of a disaster, the physical devices can become unavailable.

Breakdowns in the process can result in data loss or inability to quickly access the data when it is needed. Trying to stay up to date with advancing technology with an in-house backup solution can be costly and time consuming.
