TechTip: Alarming Truths About Data Backup & Recovery

Your precious business data is at risk all the time from hackers, viruses, natural disasters, and more, which is why backing it up is so important. Here are a few hard truths about data backup and recovery that you should know:

Data loss is expensive

Studies show that lost or stolen customer data costs you about $180 per record. And just one hour of downtime can cost you up to $8,600.

These costs add up quick and can be a big problem for small businesses.

Failing to back up your data can put you out of business

Imagine trying to operate without your customer data, accounting data, or payroll data. You wouldn’t last long.

Studies show that 60% of businesses that suffer data loss will shut down within 6 months

Losing your data isn’t just expensive. It’s a serious, business-ruining problem that you need to avoid at all costs.

More than half (58%) of businesses are not prepared for a data loss incident

The kicker is: many of those business have some sort of backup and believe they’re covered–until something happens.

Maybe they’re using an old hard drive backup that’s faulty. Or they were only backing up certain files and folders. Or they weren’t backing up every day.

That’s why it’s so important to have a reliable backup solution that automatically backs up all your data and is monitored to ensure it will work when you need it most.
