Backup Services

Business Offsite Backup Service

We are all aware that we should backup our important data, and most people in business try to make sure that they have a copy of all their important business files on their system.
But what happens if your computers are stolen or, worse still, if you have a fire or flood at your business premises?

Off-site backup

Off-site backup is the key to real security for your critical data.
If a copy of your important data is stored somewhere away from your premises then should the worst happen, you will be able to resume your business promptly, without having to recreate all of those important files.

Automatic backups

Any backup system will fail if it relies on user action, some people take the wise precaution of using a removable hard drive to store their backup on and then taking this home with them at night, this is a good system, as long the backup is taken away from the premises EVERY NIGHT. You know that the one time you don’t do it will be the time that disaster strikes.

Our Backup Service is fully automated, once set up, you will never have to think about it, you can relax in the knowledge that an up to date copy of all your important files is resting securely on our servers (which have their own backup system).

Efficient and un-invasive

We use an incremental backup system. It stores all files that have changed since the last backup.
We use your broadband connection during the early hours of the morning to upload your data to our servers.

We will help you decide which files to back up and make any changes that are required for your system to use our backup system effectively.

Automatic checking

Our backup system automatically reports to us every day via email to ensure your files have been correctly uploaded and any problems are dealt with promptly.
In normal circumstances we would be able to restore a copy of your data within 24hrs.

Highest security

Your business will have its own username and password on our servers, meaning that no-one else can access your files;
Your data will be encrypted on your system and secured during transfer using the highest level of SSL encryption, it will remain encrypted on our servers.
We treat confidentiality very seriously so you can be assured that your data is safe with us.
