If you aren’t backing up (and verifying) your data, then you’re putting it at risk. Cybercrime, hardware damage, human error – the list of ways you can lose data goes on and on.
Data loss can happen without notice.
You could come into work and find that flooding has fried your systems. Or you could download the wrong attachment from a seemingly safe email, and find that your data is being held at ransom. Or you may just accidentally delete it – it happens to all of us.
But it’s OK, right?
Because all your data is backed up, and more importantly, you’ve verified that it’s backed up and available.
Reasons To Verify Your Data Backup Capabilities
Typically, an unsuspecting employee clicks on an emailed attachment that appears to be a bill or other official document. In actuality, the attachment installs malware onto the computer system. Once embedded, the malware allows a hacker to access critical systems, often giving complete remote control data and access.
If you have you have a data backup solution, then it doesn’t matter if your data has been encrypted. You can just replace it with your backup, simple as that.
That’s why you should make a considerable investment in a comprehensive backup data recovery solution so that you can restore your data at a moment’s notice when necessary.
What To Look For In A Data Backup Solution
The key is in finding the right third-party backup solution to keep your data protected against hardware failure, ransomware, human error, and whatever else may occur.
