Mobile Workers and Teleworkers

Business travel and multiple offices can make data backup a particular challenge. 

As a consultant working from home or at a client site, as a sales person or any individual that works in multiple locations, you have to ensure that your data is safe and available.  Your business may or may not have a corporate backup solution in place - but it unlikely to be effective and efficient for you.  You spend too much of your time away from the office to store your data on central file servers.

The very nature of a person that travels also means that the data is more vulnerable - either on a home-office PC or on a laptop.  Theft from the car or at the airport, physical damage from being dropped, mishandled, abused, extra wear-and-tear of hard disks, spilt coffee!

The data you have is often sensitive.  It can be client contact records, sales presentation, proposals or client based work and often the data is time-critical - you need it for the client presentation in one hour!  So when a file is lost, you cannot afford to wait for it to be recovered.

How vulnerable is your data?
Viruses, Hackers and Spyware

Not long ago, computer viruses, hackers and spyware were of interest only to businesses with sensitive data and to IT professionals.  Now these items routinely make front page news. Any computer connected to the Internet is exposed to these dangers and the data loss that accompanies them.

Hard Drive and Hardware Failures

Hard drives store more data, are smaller and are cheaper than ever.  But all hard drives will eventually fail.  Hard drives are simply not designed to last forever. Of course, unfortunately, you can never predict when they will fail.

Natural Disasters and Theft

Most of us have insurance to protect our homes from disasters such as fires and floods, hurricanes and earthquakes.  But what's protecting your data?  Anything that can damage your home, can destroy your computer and the information that it stores.   And on top of natural disaster, we live in a world today where terrorism and theft must be considered. 

Human Error

Even if such disasters don't strike and we all hope they don't, we humans aren't perfect either. Most of us have at one point or another accidentally deleted a file or had a file overwritten.
