In everyday business, it is critical to have proper backups of data and files. Saving files on an individual hard drive and nowhere else can leave your company and your vital information vulnerable. There are several common causes of data loss such as: human error, viruses, malware, hard drive damage, power outages, theft, liquid damage, natural disasters, software corruption, and hackers.
Having proper backup solutions in place for your company is the key to avoiding this. The purpose of a backup is to create a copy of data that can be saved and recovered in a separate server, system, or program. Utilizing The Cloud, companies can have backup copies made on a regular basis to minimize data and information loss.
