PC Backup

Data loss can occur at anytime and anywhere; a hard drive could crash, a laptop could be stolen or damaged, or users could inadvertently – or intentionally – delete important data. With PC Backup, you can easily back up all critical business information that is created and stored across all company desktops, laptops and servers, without disrupting the day-to-day workflow of your employees. Other benefits include:

    • Near-continuous data protection, with automatic backups of the most current versions of files and folders
    • Data is encrypted using military-grade, 128-bit SSL encryption prior to transfer. An additional personal key can also be used for added security
    • If a file is accidentally deleted, you can quickly and easily restore your data within 30 days
    • Once PC Backup is set-up, it runs automatically, causing minimal disruption to your employees as only new or changed portions of files are backed up
