Backup: Data Insurance for Small Businesses
14 February, 2019
Retrospect Backup provides complete protection for every major operating system, virtual environment, application, and email service–with backup, archive, and duplicate features built-in.
Why Businesses Choose Retrospect Backup
You never know when someone is going to spill coffee on their laptop or trip over the power cable and pull the computer off the desk. Accidents happen every day. If you dropped your laptop and lost the data, could your business recover? Is the only copy of your customer database on the computer below your desk?
Retrospect Backup protects your business from catastrophic data loss by keeping your business data secure in a backup. Accidents are frustrating, but with Retrospect Backup, you can recover your data and move on.
Computers can fail at any moment, and that data could be lost. Modern computers have thousands of components. You don't know when your file server is going to not restart or your laptop won't turn on. Maybe you could recover the data from the hard drive inside. Maybe not.
Retrospect Backup gives you the peace of mind to know that if your computer doesn't start, your data is safe in one or more other places.
First your business was vulnerable to viruses. Then adware and spyware. Then ransomware. And now cryptomining. Malware has continuously evolved, with tremendous growth over the last few years. The fact remains: your hardware and your data are valuable.
Retrospect Backup ensures you will always have access to your data, even if your computer is compromised.
Lost, Not Found
1,400,000 smart phones were lost in the United States in 2013, and 600,000 laptops were lost at U.S. airports alone in 2008. With so many devices, you'll eventually forget one. Will you find it again?
With Retrospect Backup, you lose your device, not your data. You can restore your backup to a new machine and move forward.
1 in 10 laptops are stolen over the lifetime of a laptop, and 3,100,000 smart phones were stolen in the United States in 2013. Your business laptop might be next. How many people walk by your computer at work? Do they all work there?
Retrospect Backup is your data insurance policy. With it in place, you can restore your data to a new laptop and get back to work.
Every year, there are millions of fires, thousands of earthquakes and tornadoes, and dozens of hurricanes. If your business data only lives on the computer at the office, you're living dangerously.
With Retrospect Backup, you can store backups of your data offsite on any of our twenty different cloud providers. Want your backup on a different coast or continent? No problem.
Internet Not Required
Not all data is connected to the internet. When data is extremely sensitive, exposing it to the internet and the entire world of malicious actors is dangerous. But that data still needs protection. A good backup strategy for an offline network is necessary for many mission-critical environments.
Retrospect Backup does not require an internet connection. Licensing it does not involve a complicated activation process. You purchase a license. You type it in. The license enables the software. Done. No cloud required.
