This is a very important myth which we need to bust wide open this week. If we don’t do this, your business is in jeopardy of losing a lot of vital communications and data. So here it is: just because your business has a dedicated IT support team does not mean that your emails (or anything else for that matter), are automatically backed up.
This means that if your computer crashes, you could stand to lose everything – all of your emails, files and other documents. Trying to recover all of that can be very costly, time consuming and might not even be possible. So what can you do?
Well, you need to make sure that you have the best preventative maintenance programs in place. Here are four different options to get you started:
- Hosted Exchange or Office 385: These are cloud-based email and productivity suites where your emails, calendars, contacts and notes are stored online so you always have a backup.
- Enterprise email backup: This is a cloud based storage solution that automatically backs up everything on your computer and stores a copy of emails, documents and files, even if you delete them from your computer.
- Cloud storage: There are lots of different options here where you can store your important data, files and emails in the cloud. Brand names include Dropbox, OneDrive, Google Drive, Box.net and OwnCloud.
- IT support: This is where you have the appropriate hardware and service agreements with an IT provider, such as Capital IT Solutions who will provide ongoing backups of your data.
As you can see, there are a number of different options that you can utilise to make sure that all of your company’s information and data are stored safely offsite and backed up. The last thing you need is to lose all of your data, if your computer or your entire system crashes.
So if you believe that this type of service is vital to your business, then call us and we can design a solution that integrates smoothly with your exiting business services and software.
