Online Backup

Secure Online Backups from BITS

Backup solutions for businesses have changed significantly over the last number of years with the development of Cloud Computing Services. Online (off-site) backups have become more popular because they offer major advantages over tapes/external hard drives. Those advantages are:

  • Removal of the human interaction & possible mistakes that come with tapes/hard drives
  • Data is stored away from your building so that should a disaster occur, your data is safe
  • Restoration of Data is fast and means less down-time in the event of data loss
  • Retention periods are much greater than usually gained from tape/hard drive backups
  • Data is stored in a secure Data Centre that provides high security and availability
