Imagine for a moment that a virus infects your entire network and destroys all your emails, documents, customer records and invoices.

All your work, all your data - it's all destroyed. The UK Department of Trade and Industry found that 70% of companies that lost their data were closed within 18 months. How would your business recover? The harsh reality is, it wouldn't!

Avoid Data Loss

Data is at the core of your business and you need it in order for your business to run smoothly. This is why it's essential for all businesses to have a backup solution in place. However, according to a recent report from EMC, UK businesses are losing £10.5bn per year due to data loss and downtime.

Data Security Risks

The biggest cause of data loss is hardware and system failures followed by human error such as accidental deletion of files. Viruses, hacking and natural disasters are less likely, however let's not forget they can still happen and if and when they do your business needs to be prepared. What backup solution do you have in place to avoid this from happening to your business?

Data Backup

Tape backups are the traditional method of data storage, but tapes need upfront investment, ongoing maintenance and internal staff to maintain and operate them. Storing backup data offsite is a secure, simple and cost effective alternative. We can provide your business with an enterprise backup service so your data is always protected. SureSafe backs up your data to our Aberdeen-based data center automatically, which is highly secure and monitored 24/7. Your data is heavily encrypted both in transit and in storage, giving you that peace of mind, so you can continue to focus on your business.

Data loss can happen in many ways, that's why having a backup solution is critical for any size business. If you are not backing up your data then it's time to start.
