September is Disaster Preparedness Month. Are you prepared?

Hurricanes, tornadoes, floods, earthquakes. What do all of these have in common? Each year they are responsible for data loss that can cripple businesses and destroy personal property such as laptops, desktops, or tablets which contain valuable data including photos, videos, and critical documents. The problem is that a lot of people don’t realize the devastating effect these disasters can have on their access to data until it’s too late. Since September is National Preparedness Month, here at IDrive, we want to make sure that you and your business are ready to recover when any disaster strikes.

Chances are you’ve either been affected by a natural disaster at some point in your life or you’ve been close to it, and they often occur with little or no warning. That’s why you shouldn’t wait to protect your data so you are prepared for whatever happens.

Don’t blame Mother Nature for all disasters, however. Some of the most common IT disasters are caused by human beings, including:

  • Viruses and Data breaches

  • Theft

  • Destruction of property

  • Liquid damage (spills)

These threats can be just as devastating to our digital lives as they are to our personal property. Whatever the case may be, if you backup your data to the cloud it will remain safe from disasters and accessible from any device. Here’s how IDrive can help you prepare:

  • Universal Backup–Backup all of their data from any smartphone, tablet, or computer into a single IDrive account at one low cost.

  • Security and Privacy–Transfer and store your files with 256-bit AES encryption, with the option of a private key so you and only you can access your data.

  • Continuous Data Protection–IDrive automatically recognizes changes made to files in the backup set and backs them up in real-time.

  • Mobile backup–IDrive offers award-winning mobile apps for iOS and Android, allowing users to backup and restore their cell phone data from anywhere.
