World Backup Day – 31 March 2022

Business backups are an essential part of business.

World Backup Day – 31 March 2022

If the last 3 years have taught us anything about security, cyber security and data breaches, it is that we MUST back up our data.

World Backup Day is today, 31 March, a day for people to learn about the increasing role of data in our lives and the importance of regular backups. It is about raising awareness about backups and data preservation.

I recently sent out an email to our client reminding them that Microsoft and Google do not backup their data in the cloud. They rely on you to engage in a third party supplier to do the back up of your data.

As a full serviced Managed Service Provider and a Datto Blue Diamond Partner, we know how important backing up business and personal data is. We explained that while cloud applications may offer many advantages, they can’t completely protect your business from human error or ransomware attacks.

This is where Datto Backup for Microsoft 365 and Google Workspace comes in by protecting against permanent data loss and quickly recover from ransomware attacks or user-error with one-click restore functionality.

Microsoft 365 and Google Workspace have limited native recovery capabilities, and having a Datto backup means you can meet business continuity, compliance, and security requirements.

It is not only cloud data that you need to focus on, but any data on your Server, PC, Laptop or tablet. Gone are the days of having a Backup Tape Drive, external NAS or Thumb Drive for your business data backup. Sure they still exists, but your data may not if you get ransomware, a data breach or accidental data deletion. These methods are 1990 methods and should all be upgraded to ransomware protected backup solutions with DR.

With the Datto Alto 2TB device, small businesses can have set and forget backups that are automatically replicated to the Datto cloud. It covers you for ransomware and server failure.

For medium to large businesses, you can enjoy the extra protection of the Datto Siris backup products. Much more than a regular backup.

Talk to TCT about how you can move your data backup into the 21st Century.
