Backing up data is an essential business process for companies of all sizes operating in today’s digital environment. It is crucial for protecting business continuity in the event of data loss, a security breach, or a natural disaster.
The stark reality is that the financial loss in the event of a data breach in 2019 was $3.9 million, according to a report by Data Insider. And it continues to go up. For operators of small and mid-sized businesses, this is often financially devastating. But, according to the same report, having your data backed up—along with other loss-prevention strategies—can reduce the cost of a breach by as much as $720,000.
Gartner, a technology research firm, reports that 43% of companies that sustain a major data loss are immediately ruined by this disaster, with another 51% closing their doors within two years. That’s why it’s so important to be prepared.
Offsite backup and disaster recovery automatically backs up your data and stores it in an offsite cloud. Not only does the cloud maintain data that’s up to date, but it also makes that data accessible at all times, even in the event of a major emergency or disaster.
The business case for backing up data
For many companies, an affordable managed solution is going to be the best option for providing the robust security, backup, and disaster-recovery functions you need to prevent a loss or to mitigate the fallout from an unavoidable loss.
The benefits of using a managed solution are many:
- Lower costs—You don’t have the expenses associated with building and maintaining your own backup system.
- Access to experts—Managed service providers are up to date on the latest security and storage technologies.
- Layers of backup—Sagacent Technologies provides backup solutions, both on-premises and externally (on a physical device or the cloud).
- Data recovery—Especially with remote workers, your team needs to regularly upload data into your system to avoid any lost data, but you also need measures in place to secure and encrypt that data to avoid breaches. Our team can help you find the best option to address this issue, making sure that there is no data loss—regardless of where your team is working from or how they are connecting to your cloud data system.
- Data access—A data-recovery backup cloud system makes it easier for workers to connect with your system and each other. And the data is available to everyone, and accessible no matter where they are currently working.
