Cloud backups:

Cloud backups are secure copies of data which is stored on remote servers and can be accessed through an internet connection, they also provide an increase in the level of security for companies that will want to ensure that important information is kept safe and will be available to them in the event of a physical disaster.

Many businesses use Dropbox, Google Drive, and other online storage websites to store backup copies of their important files. While these types of services do the trick when it comes to storing and sharing a few files, they do not allow for real cloud backups due to restrictions specific to online storage sites (management limited file versions, no automatic backups, limited backup folders, etc.). A true cloud backup service allows you to create automated full system backups and store as many backup versions as you want.

Benefits of using cloud backup:

  • Faster data recovery

  • Automatic software updates on servers

  • Better quality collaborative work

  • Mobile flexibility

  • Security: Laptops, tablets and smartphones are subject to multiple thefts. Around 800,000 laptops are stolen and / or lost each year. Thanks to the cloud, the data remains accessible (since it is centralized on a server) and it is possible to modify the access to the computer in question.

  • Improved competition
