You can backup all your PCs, Macs, iOS, and Android devices in a single account with IDrive’s PC Mag award-winning application, for instance. But did you know IDrive also offers local backup with super-fast restores in addition to the security of cloud backup? For years people have had no easy solution for utilizing both online and local backup at once. But today IDrive has seamlessly integrated local and online backup into the most convenient and secure backup solution ever: Hybrid Backup.
The synthesis of local and online backup protects data by ensuring it’s never in just one place, so that no matter what happens, you’re protected. And it’s not just families that have precious memories that need to worry – a high number of businesses which suffer major data loss shut down within a year of the loss. Being able to rapidly access backed up files is vital for a business to stay in operation.
What if you could have the security of backing up to the cloud with the expediency of restoring data over a super-fast local connection? IDrive’s Hybrid Backup gives you both of those essentials in one solution. Online backup saves your data from crashes, viruses, and theft, while local backup gives you speedy restores for optimal convenience and business continuity. This hybrid solution not only provides you with more convenience, but peace of mind knowing you have the most control possible over the data which has become so integral to your life.
Here are five reasons why IDrive’s Hybrid Backup is the backup solution of the future:
Portability — IDrive’s Hybrid Backup lets you keep your most important data in your pocket for easy access. With our local backup you can store data on your hard drive for faster restores. But you can also backup to IDrive Wi-Fi, our 1TB external drive, so you can carry your files on-the-go. IDrive Wi-Fi gives you a secure fast-lane for backing up and restoring data between all your devices without plugging in.
Faster Restores — Hybrid Backup not only gives you universal access to your data from the cloud, but the fastest restores possible. With IDrive, you can expediently restore files from local drives when you need them. Meanwhile, our cloud backup solution makes all your files restorable from any device, whether it be on the PC, Mac, Android or iOS platform. IDrive’s Hybrid Backup gives you unprecedented access to your data.
Encryption — IDrive makes your data easily accessible from the cloud and local drives, but also protects all your critical files against viruses and online theft with military grade 256-bit AES encryption. Any data backed up using IDrive’s Hybrid Backup is automatically encrypted on the local and cloud levels, giving you peace of mind knowing your data is just as safe as it is easy to restore. IDrive users also have the option of choosing a super-secure private key so only they hold the code that unlocks their data.
Disaster protection — While you can restore data faster with local backup, your files are still vulnerable to natural disasters, theft, and other causes of data loss that affect physical storage devices. This is where IDrive’s online backup comes in. IDrive stores your data in world-class, disaster-proof facilities, ensuring that your files are always safe from device failures, storms and the occasional coffee spill. If your home computer (along with all your data) crashes, you can easily restore all your files from the cloud to your new computer.
Compatibility — IDrive’s Hybrid Backup is compatible with all your devices, allowing you to backup all your data to a local drive, as well as the cloud, from any server, smartphone, tablet or computer. IDrive offers backup for an unlimited number of devices, from iOS and Android to PC and Mac platforms, at no extra charge per device. With our Hybrid Backup solution, your entire network of devices can be secured with encryption, and any important data can be made rapidly accessible via a local connection which is just as secure as it is speedy.
Today there’s no reason to choose between secure cloud backups and speedy local restores. You can have the best of both worlds with IDrive’s Hybrid Backup, ensuring that your data is just as safe as it is easy to access.
