Your 2014 Data Backup Resolutions

Securo Resolution

Taylor Made Computer Solutions would like to wish you a very happy New Year and hope you have a successful 2014.

We saw some nasty viruses that threatened businesses in 2013 like ‘Cryptolocker’ and “Sobig.F”. They reminded everyone just how important it is to keep anti-virus software up-to-date and have a reliable backup protocol in place.

If the 2013 viruses didn’t get our attention, we’ve started 2014 with some severe weather conditions affecting businesses across the country.

This begs the question – is your data recoverable if your business premises are comprised by flooding or structural damage, fire or long time power loss?

With a number of businesses also likely to be left without operating system security updates as Microsoft’s support for Windows XP ceases in April this year – perhaps it’s worth making some New Year resolutions to keep your business data safe and ready for anything.

Here’s 5 New Years resolutions that you might want to consider in your data backup procedures:

1)      Go Online

We might be bias, but online backup is increasingly being considered as best practice by businesses across the globe.

Why? It not only ticks the all important box by keeping data offsite, it also continually stores it in near real time meaning you’ll never at risk of losing operationally critical data.

2)      Go Automated

Traditional backup methods require two important and expensive resources – time and manpower.

With Securo, backup is fully automated meaning you never have to remove/replace tapes or hard drives. So if it’s a bank holiday, you never have to choose between paying your staff to conduct your backup protocol or leaving the business open to data loss.

3)      Go Scalable

Will your business be growing in 2014? Do you have ambitions to blossom it into a large thriving organisation? If so, then your backup solution needs to be able to keep up with your data as it grows, without the need for additional capital expenditure of hardware or software licences.

Securo is a fully scalable solution  and because you only pay for the data you store – you never pay for more than what you need.

4)      Go Reliable

The Securo Backup & Recovery solution is built on globally recognised software from Asigra. They are an organisation that is recognised as industry leaders for enterprise cloud backup by the research and advisory body, Gartner.

Your data is also stored in two state-of-the-art data centres in Hampshire, within a high specification environment. With its unique autonomic healing capabilities, Securo automatically repairs corrupt backup files during the backup itself, ensuring a full backup every time and, most importantly, that your data is always recoverable when you need it.

5)      Go Secure

With a military grade AES-256 encryption, your data couldn’t be safer from malicious attacks – giving you piece of mind that your data is protected with an encryption that’s trusted by some of the most important organisations in the world…like the U.S. Military.

So if you’re looking to start 2014 by making sure your data is fully protected…Go Securo!
