Data Backup

Never lose your company data
Data is a company’s most important asset. Loss or corruption of mission-critical business data can cause significant damage to any enterprise. Traditional in-house backup solutions require significant investment (both hardware and software) and require persistent maintenance costs, yet are generally unable to offer protection for all disaster scenarios.
Though some use external hard drives, tapes, USB sticks or thumb drives, they too can break, get lost or be stolen.
Cloud backup solutions provide a secure option to backup data automatically as vaults are operated with high levels of security.
