Not by a hacker, but by the simple lack of funding required to keep expensive servers going as they should.
If it’s not a server that carries a business’s most important information, it can be an employee’s computer. If data is lost due to a virus, malfunction or disaster– it can be devastating to the bottom line.
Which is why online backup is a cost-effective option for small businesses.
Instead of spending thousands to maintain a bank of backup servers (and the staff to care for them), they can instead spend a couple of hundreds bucks and have access to the same files from anywhere on the planet (that has an Internet connection).
Backup is an option that should be heavily considered by any small business owner.
Small businesses interested in saving files online should consider taking advantage of Carbonite.
This version of the service differs from the home based one, as it is a limited service. However, that limited space is then shared among several different systems.
Carbonite for business can be easily deployed among desired units. Typically, consumers can setup the necessary program within ten minutes. Installation does not require users to restart their systems or stop using other applications.
The setup is simple and doesn’t need a lot of tinkering, the default settings are usually good enough for most companies.
However, if the user runs into problems with the initial setup, Carbonite does offer a valet service to help get things going.
CrashPlan has two different options from which to choose.
Endpoint Backup Plus: offers continuous data protection with administrator initiated restoration, deleted file restoration and cross-platform restoration are available too.
Customers can choose from private, hybrid or public clouds. Private and public cloud options include a free trial, after which the paid plan starts at $5 per month (per user).
Code42 platform: Like the endpoint and restore option, this service provides high levels of encryption and cloud deployment options. In addition, users can audit systems and allow two-factor security authentication.
This plan runs $10 per user per month.
While the prices are based on per user/per month, CrashPlan PRO does bill yearly and requires a minimum of 25 licenses to qualify.
