Data comes and goes everyday. Your business is always uploading, downloading, sending, receiving, creating, and deleting files. In general, your company is always accumulating data. This accumulation of data requires some kind of security to ensure the safety of not only your company, but your clients and other critical information stored.
One way to prevent any catastrophic loss from occurring is backing up your files. Local backups are a good start but a more dependable solution is through an offsite backup through an online storage provider. This solution is a great option for all businesses to help prevent any loss of data.
Most data loss is directly related to human error and negligence. A study by Compuware stated that a massive 75% of data loss is directly attributed to negligent users. That is people just accidentally deleting files or losing their hardware/device.
According to a SquareTrade study, 1 in 3 laptops fail over 3 years. That is either from hardware failure or accidental damage, but the result is a loss of data with a slim possibility of recovery.
“If you are a small business and you have a catastrophic loss of data, more likely than not you will never recover. Data storage is so cheap now, if you can’t afford it you should shut your business down and do something else.”
So between your computer failing and you failing at using your computer, make sure that you back up all your important files! SmartFile is a great solution for businesses of all sizes to securely store and share critical business data offsite. With affordable storage plans and many additional features that are designed to enhance business file sharing, SmartFile is your answer for online backup.
