How valuable to your business is the data stored on your
What would happen if you lost that data? Could you recreate
it? Even if you could recreate it, how much time would this process
take? How much money would it cost you in lost business and lost opportunities?
And finally, would your business even survive?
If your business is like most businesses today, your computer
data is vital to your everyday operations. In fact, information
is often regarded as the lifeblood of today's businesses. Information
such as your:
- Customer Records
- Emails and Contact Information
- Financial Data
- Key Databases
- Important Documents
Unfortunately, your servers, computers and laptops and
the data that they store are vulnerable to an ever-growing list of
Viruses, Hackers and Spyware
Computer viruses, hackers and spyware can reek havoc on
a company's network and data infrastructure. Viruses are getting
more dangerous, spyware is getting more malicious and hackers more brazen.
Hard Drive and Hardware Failures
While hard drives are constantly getting better, faster,
cheaper and are storing more data, they are still extremely susceptible
to failure. In fact, all hard drives will eventually fail as they
are not designed to last forever. And of course, unfortunately,
you never know when they will fail. Power surges, electrostatic
shocks, circuit board shorts and head crashes can all wipe out the data
that is stored on your hard drives.
Natural Disasters and Theft
You probably have business interruption insurance that
will protect your physical assets from disasters such as fires and floods,
hurricanes and earthquakes. But what is protecting your data?
Anything that can damage your office can destroy your computers and
the information that they store. And on top of natural disasters,
we live in a world today where terrorism and theft must be considered.
Even the greatest of employees aren't perfect. Sooner
or later, by accident, an important document will get deleted, a spreadsheet
overwritten or a crucial database corrupted.

Hopefully you now have an understanding of the importance
of ensuring that your company's data is always safe and always available
to you. Now, find out why online backup
is the easiest, safest and most affordable way to protect your data.
