Ideal Scenarios for Using Online Backup
Companies without a centralized office can greatly benefit from the simplicity that online backup provides.
Online backup is a great supplement to an in-office backup. It creates a redundant backup that protects your company from office-wide disasters.
When you have data on company laptops that are frequently travelling and infrequently in the office, online backup is the only way to ensure this data is getting backed up.
Online Backup isn't Just the Cloud
Companies can actually create their own online backup. Storage devices can be kept at branch offices or the business owner's home. Every night changes to the data are replicated over the internet to the off-site storage device. The backups are encrypted so that your data won't be viewed by unwanted eyes. The nice thing about this solution is that you own the software and the hardware so you don't need to pay monthly fees to a cloud backup provider.
Is Online Backup Safe?
If your company works with sensitive or proprietary data, online back is safe. Online backups can be encrypted by the owner of the data to insure nobody can see view the data unless you want them to. The encryption is such that if the encryption key is forgotten there is absolutely no way to recover the data. Only those that know the password will have access to that data.
