Protect Your Business With IDrive Cloud Backup

March 25, 2019

Data can be lost easily due to a number of factors such as malicious software, system crash, theft, accidental deletions and so on. Moreover, you cannot predict when this happens, and in a matter of seconds you could lose the entire repository of data. Therefore, you need effective data protection such as cloud backup to protect your valuable information.

Unlike traditional storage solutions like tape storage, cloud backup is more economical and easily scalable. If you use tape-based storage, you would require several tapes to backup all of your data. This would take up a lot of time, processes and would cost more too. Online backup solutions, on the other hand, provide you with robust data protection at an affordable price.

Online backup solutions can be used by both individual users as well as businesses. IDrive cloud backup solution for business can help protect huge volumes of data stored in multiple computers, mobile devices, servers and even NAS devices in one account.

Robust Security with IDrive Cloud Backup
IDrive cloud backup is bound by military-grade 256-bit AES encryption to protect your data. Furthermore, IDrive cloud backup offers an optional private key, which is known only to you. Your data, therefore, cannot be accessed by unauthorized parties but only by you at all times.

IDrive’s data centers are custom designed with raised floors, HVAC temperature control systems with separate cooling zones and seismically braced racks. Additionally, state-of-the-art smoke detection and fire suppression systems, motion sensors, 24/7 secured access, video camera surveillance and security breach alarms are also included for robust security of your data.
