IDrive Cloud Backup for Small Business

July 19, 2019

Small businesses have two options when it comes to data backup – onsite or offsite storage. While having a local repository ensures data is readily available for restores, the number of complications like a theft, natural disaster or a hardware failure is really high with onsite data backup. This is when an offsite alternative like cloud backup serves as a reliable option in terms of protecting data from being damaged, stolen or completely destroyed.

The IDrive Cloud Backup Solution
If you are looking for a safe, practical and simple online backup, IDrive fits the bill. For starters, it’s secure. All your data is completely encrypted during transfer and stored in highly secure data centers. Once you have configured IDrive online backup on your computers, mobiles, NAS devices or servers and updated the backup set, the whole process of transferring data to cloud is automatic. Also, the initial full backups are followed by incremental backups.
