Data backup centers, thousands of miles apart means data is safe

We all make mistakes

Data backups

Data backups is the tenth and final post from our Business Advisory Guide entitled “12 Little-Known Facts Every Business Owner Must Know About Data Backup, Security And Disaster Recovery.” Written in plain English, this easy to read 15 page guide explains what you must know about data backup and disaster recovery, should you experience a data erasing disaster at your business.

In this post we answer the question you may be asking:

Data Backup – Why Trust DTS InfoTech?

There are a lot of companies offering remote backup services, so what makes us so special? Why choose us over the dozens of other companies offering what appear to be the same services? I’m glad you asked because there are 5 BIG reasons to trust us with your data security:

  • High-Availability, High Security DataCenters. Two SSAE 16 Type II secure online data backup centers, located thousands of miles apart. This means your data is locked down tight, protected from even the worst natural disasters – fire, flood and theft.
  • 365 Days A Year Monitoring. We believe data backups need to be monitored and checked by a qualified technician – not an automated machine. When you trust your backups and security to us, we make SURE these systems are well maintained and monitored.
  • Free Help Desk For File Restores. Need help in restoring a file you accidentally deleted or over wrote? Call our help desk and we’ll restore it back to you. Some companies charge you extra for this service, or don’t offer it at all.
  • Regular Test Restores And Reporting. We insist that all clients receive quarterly test restores of their backups to ensure they are working. We also send all of our clients a routine e-mail that verifies that their backups ran without errors. Of course if they don’t, we’re on it immediately.
  • We’re Local! We often joke that clients like to have a vendor within “choking distance.” Not only are we local, but we’ve also been serving small and medium businesses in this area for 13 years. We’ll come on site, shake your hand, and buy you a cup of coffee. Wouldn’t you rather deal with a local company that can meet with you face to face rather than an unknown entity in a different state – or different country?

This guide explains in plain every day English what you need to know about data backup, security and disaster recovery.

And don’t worry about some sales guy calling you from our office because you downloaded information off of our website. No one from our office will call you; I promise. We don’t like sales calls any more than you do! We understand if you’re not ready to do that, and if that’s the case, then just read these posts when they come out. We post on a regular schedule.

I Don’t Need A Data Backup And Security Audit.

Data Backup And Security Audit

Data Backup And Security Audit

Data Backup And Security Audit is the topic of this eight post from our Business Advisory Guide entitled “12 Little-Known Facts Every Business Owner Must Know About Data Backup, Security And Disaster Recovery.” Written in plain English, this easy to read 15 page guide explains what you must know about data backup and disaster recovery, should you experience a data erasing disaster at your business.

In this post we have a question for you!

Want To Know For Sure If Your Data Backup Is Truly Keeping Your Data Secure?
Our Free Data Backup And Security Audit Will Reveal The Truth

If you are worried about whether or not your current backup and security processes are up to par, I’d like to give you a Free Data Backup And Security Audit ($275 value) as a means for introducing our services to you. Why do we do this? Simply because I know how confusing and difficult it can be to find a good IT support company that is responsive, easy to work with and actually knows what they’re doing.

Just about anyone can say they are an “IT expert.” And since most business owners don’t have the ability to evaluate whether or not their IT Company or person is doing a good job, we find that offering this free service is a great, no-risk way of demonstrating how we can help you. At the very least, you’ll get a free, 3rd party evaluation of your current backup, which is extremely valuable even if you don’t choose to hire us.

At no charge, one of our security specialists will come on site and . . .

  • Audit your current data security and protection, including backup and restore procedures, tape drives or other onsite backup devices to validate if all of your data is actually being backed up in a format that could quickly be restored. (We often discover data on drives, laptops or PCs that is overlooked.)
  • Present a simple and easy to understand chart that will detail the makeup of your data, including the age and type of files you are backing up. Why should you care? Because many companies inadvertently use valuable computer storage to back up their employees’ personal MP3 files and movies.
  • Discuss how long it would take you to be back up and running in the event of an emergency or server crash based on your current system.
  • Answer any questions you have about backing up and securing your data. We’re also happy to put together two or three options for backup and security based on your specific needs and budget. We know everyone has a different level of risk tolerance, and we want to make sure all the risks you’re taking with your data are by choice not because of miscommunication or accident.

Depending on what we discover, we’ll either give you a clean bill of health or reveal gaps in your data backup that could prove disastrous. If it’s appropriate, we’ll provide you with an action plan for further securing your data with our LiveWatchIT + Local Backup or our CloudScape Backup service.

Naturally, I don’t expect everyone to become a client; you won’t be pressured into buying anything or driven nuts by a pushy, desperate sales guy. Our primary goals are to provide value in advance, to educate you and other business owners and to provide smart, affordable options for making sure your business doesn’t lose critical data.
