Backup and recovery is the process of creating and storing copies of data that can be used to protect your organization against data loss. Data is one of the most valuable assets a business has and often holds the key to a competitive advantage in the market. Keeping data protected and consistently available has become more critical than ever. Critical data loss can come from malicious threat actors, natural disasters, hardware or software failures, data corruption, and simple user error such as accidental deletion of data.
Threats to that data are on the rise, and data loss can halt your operations, lead to upset customers, lost revenue, and potentially bankruptcy. More than 90% of companies without a disaster recovery plan who suffer a major disaster, are out of business within one year. There are tremendous benefits from utilizing backup software in backing up your data that can save you time and help you retain your competitive advantage when facing a data loss or complication.

4. Reliability and Fast Recovery
One of the most significant benefits of remote data backup is that your company’s data is backed up automatically either daily or at scheduled regular times. Point in time backup uses snapshot functions to provide instant point-in-time copies of your data on a consistent basis, to minimize the amount data lost between backups. Retaining multiple copies of data provides the insurance and flexibility to restore to a point in time before your data was compromised. This makes the whole process of data recovery quick, easy and reliable.
