Data is precious and has been compared to the crown jewels of an organization — it is certainly something you can’t afford to lose. With huge amounts of data being generated every day, organizations are increasingly facing challenges relating to safe and secure offsite backup. You most certainly would be careful about how you stored priceless gems so why not apply the same principles to your data storage.
It is so easy to think that your business does not need secure online backup – that is until you experience a computer crash and that black screen tells you all is not well. For an SME with a server and more than one laptop computer in use the problems are compounded and finding your business without adequate backup in the aftermath of a natural disaster of human mistake can be very costly.
Backing up your data offsite is in fact not expensive or difficult and it is the natural way to insure your very precious data against loss. With the holiday period approaching and offices closing down for up to two weeks there can be no better time to contact BackupVault – leading providers of safe and secure offsite backup to SME’s - and get your data safely secured for Christmas. Call us on 020 3102 0040 or go to www.backupvault.co.uk for more information. We look forward to securing the crown jewels of your organisation!
Laptop computer thefts are at an all time high. Airports hotel rooms and parked cars, shops and offices are all reporting an increase in laptop thefts. Staggeringly over 10,000 laptops are lost or stolen at airports alone every week and with the Christmas holidays approaching this is likely to rise.
The inconvenience of losing your laptop is easily overcome by just buying a new one but if your data was not backed up the problem suddenly becomes much more serious. Laptops have become the modern day diary/ Filofax and contain masses and masses of important and often sensitive data. Contacts, appointments, etickets, presentations and bank statements are all likely to be stored on your laptop and without this data your business travel could be severely disrupted and potential business lost.
Secure online backup from BackupVault will give you peace of mind and enable you to continue you working day with the minimum of disruption. If and when you need to restore your data it is just three mouse clicks away and our 24/7 service means you will always be able to access that critical and sensitive information and continue your day.
Secure online backup is not an option it is a necessity! Make sure you get your data securely stored with BackupVault. Don’t delay, call us today on 020 3102 0040 or go to BackupVault for more information about our comprehensive, secure data storage services.
December is certainly seen as a bad month for data loss so what better Christmas present for your business than secure online backup supplied by a BackupVault and powered by Attix5 secure offsite backup software.
Many offices will be closing down for up to two weeks over the Christmas and New Year period and any one of a number of disasters can strike whist offices are empty.
Last year one of our clients returned to their offices to find that a rodent had been busy chewing vital computer cables and all their precious data had to be restored. Luckily they had BackupVault powered by Attix5 software in place and normal service was resumed almost immediately.
We all would like a white Christmas but with snow comes ice and with ice comes burst pipes in unattended offices. Water and computers do not mix and whilst you may think you have data safely backed up on site can you really be sure this is the case?
Laptops too are vulnerable. It might seem a good idea to take your work home but Christmas is just the time when it may be stolen. Just imagine losing all the emails that come in whilst you are at home and how do you explain your negligence to your boss? Safe secure online backup will at least mean that you can retrieve those important contacts and start the new year on the right note.
All these risks may seem trivial and unimportant now and most of us believe that data loss will never happen to us but it can so easily happen and when you evaluate how irrecoverable and irreplaceable you data is along with the chance of unauthorised access to data that is not securely stored with offsite backup it makes sense to look now at that early Christmas gift of secure online backup for your business.

BackupVault looks after the online backup of businesses large and small but it was heartening to hear that our offsite backup had prevented the complete meltdown of one of our clients businesses.
Owners of SME’s are often so busy with the day to day running their business that the issue of backing up their company data is often left to chance. It is only when disaster strikes that they realise just how important it is to have adequate offsite backup that can reinstate their data in a matter of minutes.
Researcher Andy works from home and provides statistical data and business intelligence to a number of small businesses. Historically Andy held research data on two computers and an external hard drive. A sense of unease and a computer virus led Andy to evaluate how safe the data actually was and she realised that the time had come to invest in online backup services. Attix5 had been recommended by a business associate and a service was put in place almost immediately and not a day too soon.
A few weeks after the online backup service had been put in place a major computer failure wiped the data from her laptop just as Andy was about to deliver a large project to an important client. What could have been a major blow to a small business turned out to be a minor glitch as the data was immediately restored to a new machine. The process was carried out remotely and the contract was delivered on time.
What could have been an extremely stressful and expensive data loss was avoided and the reality of what could have been was not lost on Andy or the client both of whom expressed their gratitude to www.backupvault.co.uk and in particular to the Attix5 system.

Here in the UK we have already had a taste of winter with floods and high winds bringing chaos to many businesses. In the US the situation is far worse and as Hurricane Sandy passes through it remains to be seen how businesses will cope and what disaster recovery plans they actually have in place.
Flooding has been a particular nightmare for small businesses here in the UK and some SME’s had computers and servers damaged beyond repair. SME owners and business professionals who routinely carry their PC’s with them in the car are also especially vulnerable to having their work interrupted by vital data loss due to lack of effective online backup.
We none of us appreciate the inconvenience that is caused by poor data protection and the solutions we have here at BackupVault are really so simple. No matter what kind of server, PC, notebook or tablet you have there is an online backup solution to suit you at a price you really can afford.

We have recently had quite a few enquiries asking whether our online backup service is encrypted. This is generally considered to be a good sign as it shows that users and companies are becoming more and more aware of the importance of security.
Our online backup service uses a combination of SSL and AES encryption. When backups are created they are encrypted on the users server/PC using the key the user created. This encrypted data is then sent over the Internet using SSL encryption where it arrives at our storage servers.
A little tip: Ask your current online backup company what would happen to your data if you forgot your encryption key/password? If they say they can reset it for you then it is likely they are not using any kind of encryption at all – or they store your encryption key on their systems. BackupVault uses an encryption key known only by you. We do not store this encryption key anywhere on our systems. You can be rest assured that your data remains on our storage systems in an encrypted state at all times.
There are many online backup companies out there and understandably it may seem hard to see who to use. Whilst we know we are the best online backup company, we have now made it a little easier to choose.
From today onwards all online backup trials will allow up to 10Gb of backup. Full 24 hour support including telephone, email and remote is available for the trial period. If you require more space, please ask.
It seems like every week there is another article exposing a company or government department that has lost data. Each time this happens the importance of moving data offsite and encryption is highlighted.
It has just been announced that back in May, Rochdale Metropolitan Borough Council lost a memory stick containing details of 18,000 residents. Worst still was that fact that this information was unencrypted.
The council was found to be in breach of The Data Protection Act. A report found that steps were not taken to ensure that staff were trained in basic encryption methods.
Many small businesses use memory sticks as a form of backup for their company. Whilst they are quick and convenient, they suffer from the following drawbacks:
