The Risk of Not Having Cloud Backup

25th Nov 2019 | Posted by admin

If you have ever lost any data in a disaster, there are only two reasons why this could happen.

1/ Your I.T provider offered you the option of offsite backup, and you chose to decline it due to cost.

2/ Your I.T provider never thought about it, at which point you should be getting rid of them as your provider.

At Gekko, we believe it is always better to be safe than sorry. And given the fact that files can disappear or be corrupted in an instant, small businesses need robust data backup systems in place. Without one, you could very well lose lots of money and have your hard-earned reputation irrevocably damaged. There is no excuse for not having backups.

Cloud Backup is like insurance for your home.

Here are the top two incidents for loss of data are

      Hardware Failure

A common cause of data loss is related to hardware and software failures and glitches. For example, errors in RAID arrays often compromise or corrupt data. When hardware or software fails, the errors could be copied to a local backup.

Our Cloud Backup option removes this risk by holding as many backup points as you wish, and you can restore the files as fast as your connection will allow.

      Cyber Attack

Hackers who use ransomware are using more aggressive tactics than the traditional email phishing scheme. In the past, companies could foil a ransomware attack with a strong backup solution. With backup information on hand, the ransom demand is meaningless, right? Not anymore.

Hackers are now using brute-force attacks on routers to bypass employees. They no longer solely target primary data; any local backup data is up for grabs. However, if your data is stored in one or more secure backup locations, you could restore your data even if a hacker stole your local backup.

Our Cloud Backup option removes this risk by holding as many backup points as you wish, and you can restore the files as fast as your connection will allow.
