Backup your Business...

Do you realise that your company's data is your most valuable asset?

Many businesses have every intention of backing up their critical data every night. Sometimes they will even store the backups offsite on a regular basis... just in case. But are you actually one of those smart minded business owners or do you trust to luck ?

Without a proper backup of your data you make your business very vulnerable. Imagine losing your data by means of theft, fire, flooding, virus, power cut or a technical malfunction. This would be a disaster and it is at such a moment that you realise just how vital it is that you have a proper backup of your business information. According to the DTI, 70% of businesses that suffer a major data loss will be out of business within 18 months.

PerfectBackup offers you the ease and assurance of online backup. You won't have to invest anymore in expensive backup software, tapes, tape-streamers or time to make and check your (daily) backup. Nor will you have to trust a member of staff to take the backup tapes home each night and keep them safe and away from things such as telephones, microwave ovens etc (where the magnetic fields can wipe the data from the tape).

With the online backup service provided by PerfectBackup your daily data backup is fully automated. Every day your data will be copied and stored savely in a secure datacentre, and you can access your data backup 24 hours a day if you need to restore any of it.

Just because you have a backup system in place does not necessarily mean that you are properly backing up your data.

Are your backups kept in a secure place away from the computer that is being backed up? If your data backups stay with the very computer it was meant to backup, then you will have wasted every penny and every minute you have ever spent on data backups in the event of a fire, flood or other such disaster !

Even if you take the backups off-site every night are you sure that that backup tapes are safe? Having your critical business data backed up every night offsite in PerfectBackup's secure datacentre is considerably better than just having one of your employees (or yourself) take it home in their bag or the glove compartment of their car from time to time. Losing even a week of data can be devastating to any business and can cost you hundreds or even thousands of pounds!

With PerfectBackup you are only a few minutes away from a secure, simple and reliable online backup solution and a simple and reliable restore process.

Just think... If your business data were lost, how much time and money would you spend recovering it?
