Are you considering changing your approach to data backup and disaster recovery within your company in Dallas? If so, you will likely have heard all about cloud backup disaster recovery solutions and how they have the potential to benefit your business and IT resiliency levels in general. However, you will also likely have wondered just how safe these cloud data backup services really are, especially if you have been relying on offsite data backup solutions up until now. Fear not – we answer all of your burning questions about cloud backup below.
Won’t I Become a Target for Hackers if I Opt for Cloud Backup & Disaster Recovery?
We live in a world where our business data and information is constantly under threat, and the truth of the matter is that there are risks associated with every possible approach to data backup and disaster recovery. Contrary to popular belief, your data isn’t 100% safe on your hard drive or your local backup. The good news about cloud back services, however, is the fact that established encryption algorithms are used, all of which require an access key/password. Without that key/password, any files stored on the cloud are completely inaccessible. In short, cloud backup services are just as safe, if not safer, than any other alternative disaster recovery solutions available today.
Can I Rely Solely on Cloud Backup?
Yes, you can. However, it is often better to take your backup disaster recovery one step further by opting to make use of cloud backup in conjunction with a local backup on an external hard drive (kept offsite).
Is There Anything Else I Need to Know?
As already mentioned, data can only be decrypted when the correct key or password is entered. It is therefore essential that you are able to remember this key/password. Without it, all data stored on the cloud will be lost.
Ultimately, the answer to ensuring safer and more effective cloud data backup solutions is to enlist the services of a professional corporate data backup company like Team Logic IT in Dallas.
