There’s a saying you may have heard before: “Two is one and one is none”. This simple phrase emphasises the importance of having a backup plan. Things can get lost or even break in the field. It’s why skydivers always have more than one more parachute on any given jump. If the main parachute malfunctions for any reason, they can disconnect it and deploy the reserve parachute to safety.
It’s an extreme example but it illustrates an important point that’s also applicable in business – You need to have redundancy. No business owner likes to think of the possibility of losing their valuable data. The reality though is that the future is never absolutely certain. Anything can happen.
Here we’ll look at how utilising backup software can save your business. Continue reading

Most of us set goals, tasks, and challenges to tackle especially at the start of a new year. Cleaning out the house, checking for the best energy deals or promising to join a gym are some of the types of goals we set to improve our lives and build on our productivity and health in the future.
Resolutions to improve for the coming year are great things to aspire towards; whether they are organising your office, tidying your house, or taking control of your digital footprint. The problem though is motivation can quickly fall away by the end of January. If you manage to achieve only one of your goals for this year, make it to put a good data backup in place.
More and more businesses and organizations are getting hit by ransomware demands. It doesn’t matter what industry you are in, hospitals, schools, factories, offices,… are all getting infected and hackers are raking in millions.
Ransomware attacks are devious in their simplicity. A user in a business is tricked into opening a file, usually through a phishing email or download. The file contains malware which then encrypts your data and demands money in exchange for the password to decrypt you data.
All businesses should have a backup and thus should simply be able to restore from their backup if the worst occurs. But this is not always the case.Sometimes the backup fails for some reason and the data can’t be retrieved. In other instances, the business has a backup that can be restored but it doesn’t include everything they need. So have you tested your backup recently?
Sometime the backup is also caught in the ransomware encryption and becomes useless as a recovery method. This is why it is good to have at least one backup stored offsite and not connected to a computer network.
The only defense is to block the malware before it can infect your network and then continue the protection with a comprehensive backup strategy for all workstations and servers.
