Reliable Onsite Backup
If cloud backups are not suitable or you would like to keep and manage your backup on-premise, then we can install backup hardware onsite, so that if a disaster was to happen you can effectively and efficiently recover your data.
Any onsite backup will be attached to the company network and therefore will be vulnerable to data theft, or if there is a disaster could be at risk to physical damage, therefore it may be worth looking at an offsite or hybrid solution as well, to ensure that your backup solutions are as robust as possible.
Whatever you decide Covenco365’s DR experts on hand for advice.
