The reasons to back up your business’s data are numerous. For instance, your data could be stolen by hackers and held for ransom. It could be destroyed in a natural disaster like a fire or floor. Or, your network could simply crash, leaving you without your files until full service is restored. And these are just some of the bad things that can happen.
So why then is your business — along with more than a third of enterprises today — still not backing up its digital information?
Here are some excuses that just won’t cut it anymore:
It’s not in your budget: Your budget may be tight right now, and so the last thing you want to do is fork over extra money to a vendor or backup network. But think of a data backup like an insurance policy. You are investing in a system that could keep your business alive and functioning when disaster strikes. So this is pretty important—and not something you want to go without.
Put it this way: If you don’t have the budgetary allowance to back up your business’s data now, you definitely won’t have the financial means to recover later.
You haven’t lost any data yet: If this is the case, your business has been very lucky so far. But strong businesses don’t run on luck. They run on sound strategy. It’s very important to have a data recovery plan in place to help you bounce back from an unplanned disaster quickly and with minimal loss. Your business is not invincible.
It’s too much work: Maybe it’s a question of manpower. Backup networks require ongoing support and attention just like primary networks do, and you may not have the extra IT staff to handle the job. If this is the case, you can work with a managed services provider like Apex Technology Services. An MSP will provide your business with IT support on an as-needed basis. It’s a cost-effective and reliable way to run a backup network.
Here at Apex, we’d hate to be the ones to say “we told you so” if you permanently lose access to important files. So no more excuses! Back up your data today.
