Top 10 Reasons To Backup Your Data

Posted on April 19th 2018

The backup of vital company information is critical to a company’s survival, no matter what size the company. Research by the Home Office shows that 93 percent of businesses that lose data due to a disaster go out of business within two years.

Here are our top 10 reasons for using online server backup and recovery:

1. Data Loss Prevention
The main reason for data backup is to save important files if a cyber attack, system crash or hard drive failure occurs.

2. A Plan B
There should be additional data backups if the original backups result in data corruption or hard drive failure. This option is best done via the cloud or offsite storage.

3. Simple Recovery
People make mistakes. Emails containing viruses are accidentally opened every day and important files are often mistakenly deleted. By regularly backing up your data you reduce the impact of these substantially.

4. Client Relationship and Trust
Saved information improves client relationship management, which leads to increase in marketing and sales. Additionally, saved client information builds trust and value of a company.

5. Investor Relations
Per investor relations, data backup reduces the tedious time to compile annual reports to shareholders. Saved information symbolizes a company’s due diligence and organization. Without data backup, shareholders cannot make informed decisions or determine a company’s value.

6. Archiving
Backed up information streamlines the development of archives. With digital information, company history is in the making.

7. Competitive Gain
Saved company data can be a competitive advantage because there are many businesses that fail to data backup important information.

8. Improved Productivity
With existing backed up files, companies improve productivity by reducing wasted time. Archived files lead to comparative studies of the past and present to devise a more effective plan.

9. No Wasted Downtime
Data backup reduces ‘wasted time’ and can get a company back up and running quickly. This means the impact of downtime is minimal.

10. Peace of Mind
Regular data backups lead to peace of mind. In the event a cybercrime occurs, if a backup is there it can restart and get a company back up and running. It is never too late to start saving important company data.
