backup

With more workers depending on laptops it is more important than ever to ensure that the work protected and stored on those devices is backed up and protected. Forrester Research says that 45% of corporate executives don’t follow policies for data use and handling. Underlining how at risk almost half of a business’s data actually is. With this much at risk can IT managers or business owners rely on ineffective backup solutions?

If you are concerned that your data backup solution is not up to scratch consider if you can answer yes to any of these four points.

1. Backups slow down work

Legacy backup solutions were originally intended to run on servers computers, so when it’s re-purposed on endpoints, backups are often intrusive for users. These backups often slow down the machine or even require users to remember to backup, this inefficiency causes users to often turn off backups or to forget to do them, leaving data unprotected.

2. Backups sometimes happen

Solutions that give false positive backups, or backups that are not actually happening are a sign of unreliable backup. Unreliable data backups put businesses at risk because data can easily be lost or stolen and there will be no backups in place to ensure continuity.

3. Backups put too much load on devices and infrastructure

Legacy systems are built for servers which have much more resources that personal devices have. These backups offer inefficient data de-duplication, cannot cope with variable bandwidths, and only backup once a day.

4. Backups cannot guarantee against data loss

A secure and effective backup should be able to store data for infinity, only being hampered by how much storage an organisation actually has. Solutions that delete backups or inactive accounts after a set amount of time risk the business losing critical data. As a result, businesses that have secure and automated backups can guarantee data continuity and safety of private information.

An effective endpoint data backup solution is powerful enough to ensure that laptops and desktops are being run on a regular basis and that those backups are easily available should users need to restore files or data sets.
