As the power of computers continues to grow, more and more of the value generated by businesses resides in electronic storage — everything from customer lists to product plans to accounts receivable. Large enterprises invest heavily to protect that data by backing it up, using a variety of products and technologies.
But how well protected is the data of small and medium-sized companies? How do those businesses back up their information, and are they doing enough to protect the company against loss? Are their data protection practices keeping pace with the growth of their data?
Recent studies by technology consulting groups have shown that:
- Half of SMBs have lost important business data from their computers
- A third of the companies that lost data suffered lost sales as a result
- Although hardware failure is the most common cause of data loss, midsize companies lose data in many different ways, some of them surprising. For example, a quarter of the midsize companies that lost data said they have had incidents in which an employee erased it maliciously.
- About a quarter of SMBs do not back up their servers or PCs.
- Most SMBs are vulnerable to some forms of data loss from their PCs and servers because they store backup files in the same location as the computers backed up.
TrueBackup ensures all your data is backed up automatically, stored offsite and is easily accessible with just a few clicks.
