Take a moment to think about the different kinds of data your business handles on a daily basis. Data is the lifeblood of every business and allows you to maintain all your business functions, from back office activities such as accounting and HR, to your revenue generating activities like keeping your inventory fresh and up to date and your client interactions. Because of the importance of your business data, keeping it safe and secure must be high on your list of priorities. Unfortunately, many times, your data backup is often the last thing on your mind as you handle your day to day business activities. Fortunately, there are companies providing IT services in New York City that provide managed backup solutions that could solve this problem for you and give you the confidence that your data is secure.
Why Use Managed Backup?
When your business is small, it might not be feasible to have a fully-fledged IT department. For the most part, you learn how to get by wearing many hats. While this can help you keep costs down, you can end up being very reactive and having to spend a lot of your time putting out fires. This is often the case when it comes to data backup and cybersecurity. As the saying goes, prevention is better than cure, so why not put more focus on being proactive about having a regular data backup and monitoring your IT systems for possible threats before they occur?
If your first reaction to that is “No one has time for that,” it’s a good sign that you should contract with someone who can manage your backups. If your IT staff are constantly busy, that’s another sign that a contract with a managed backup provider is a good idea.
