83% of businesses have experienced multiple data breaches, 25% of which never reopen their doors after an attack.
Small businesses are twice as likely to fall victim to cyber-attacks and more than half will never recover.
This area is one of our specialties and luckily, many of these types of disasters could be avoided by implementing secure offsite data backups before an attack occurs.
At DataUP we help select the best backup strategy, provide backup solutions, and ensure backups are up to date and functioning properly for your business. We can also help with data retention policies and any regulatory compliance.
Onsite vs Offsite Data Backup for Small Businesses – Advantages and Disadvantages.
Onsite data backup refers to backing up data on a storage device located within the same physical location as the business, while offsite data backup involves storing data on a remote server or cloud-based platform located in a different physical location. Both approaches have their advantages and disadvantages for small businesses.
Offsite data backup provides added protection against disasters and ensures that data is not lost in the event of a catastrophic event. Although offsite backup may be slower to access, it eliminates the need for businesses to manage their own backup infrastructure and reduces the risk of data loss due to human error, cyber-attack or natural disaster.
How Can DataUP Help?
DataUP can assess your backup needs and determine the most appropriate backup strategy based on its specific requirements. We provide onsite and offsite backup solutions, including cloud-based backup and disaster recovery services. DataUP can also assist with backup monitoring and testing to ensure that backups are functioning properly and can be easily restored in the event of a breach or failure. This will streamline disaster recovery, reduce downtime, and improve bottom line outcomes.
A complete offsite backup can be performed at night, or alternatively when scheduled and works by establishing a secure connection between the Data Centre and your server, then backing up your critical data.
Our process is unique in the way it compares the data being uploaded to that already backed up and only transfers the parts of the data that have changed, allowing the process to be completed much faster than alternative methods. Additionally, Data Centres can be configured to maintain a backup buffer, allowing you to access an earlier backup if needed. This solution also supports a range of applications and backup technologies.
