We work with you to set up the best backup procedures tailored to your needs.
It’s all too easy to put off getting a backup solution – until it’s too late and your business data has disappeared. Despite the proven pain of data loss, many small to medium businesses (SMBs) continue to stick their heads in the sand when thinking about the need for backup. Based on current rates, it’s a coin flip whether you’ll experience a data breach or get hit by a ransomware attack in the next year. 46% of US companies experienced a data breach in the U.S. in 2018, and the number is growing each year. Meanwhile, 55% of US businesses suffered a ransomware attack in the last 12 months.
Simply put, attackers see SMBs as softer targets than enterprises, as they have fewer security resources, less sophisticated defenses, and are more inclined to pay ransoms because they simply can’t afford the downtime.
If you run a business, you have information that attackers want. From customer/employee records to proprietary information, your data has value to criminals and competitors. Installing antivirus software and email filters is simply no longer enough to protect your business in the face of todays’ sophisticated attacks. Even if your business is lucky enough to never face a cyber attack, there are a multitude of other ways you can lose valuable data…and most of them start with simple user mistakes.
Even when most of your data is in the cloud, SaaS applications are still vulnerable to data loss, because human error is the main cause of data loss. Over 70% of data loss in cloud apps is due to accidental or malicious deletion by end users. While 32% of companies lose data in the cloud: 64% due to accidental deletion, 13% due to hackers, 7% due to malicious deletion, and 16% due to software issues. Even Microsoft 365 and Office 365 only store data for 30 days, and Microsoft themselves recommend the use of a third-party backup solution in their Microsoft Services Agreement.
BY NOW, IT’S PRETTY CLEAR THAT NO BUSINESS IS IMMUNE TO DATA LOSS — EVEN YOURS. WHEN IT HAPPENS, IT HURTS.
