For small businesses, as we already know, data loss can be crippling. Small business owners need to protect themselves and their company’s data from natural disasters, viruses, hard drive failure or even employee theft.
If you’re a small business owner and this concerns you, it should! A lot of small businesses may not have the resources to recover from such a disaster and still keep their doors open.
No need to panic though, as there’s a simple and affordable way to prevent and recover from data catastrophes. According to a 2016 Cloud Backup Survey by Washington D.C. based researchers, Clutch, 63% of small businesses have implemented a cloud backup solution for protection from disasters within the last 2 years, insinuating that SMBs nationwide are overcoming their apprehension of using cloud based backup solutions.
So what caused this recent uptick in online backup usage among small businesses? According to the survey, security is the main factor. 90% of businesses using cloud backup services believe that their data is equally or even more secure than only using a local backup. Another factor? Trust. As time goes on and online backup services continue to add new features, business owners are now more confident in the cloud than ever before, and they are understanding that for the ultimate level of protection from any type of disaster, their data should be stored somewhere offsite.
