Securing Data From All Your Devices With IDrive Online Backup

February 15, 2019

You data is precious, be it your personal or business data, and you could lose it easily in numerous ways. An online attack from hackers or a natural calamity such as a fire or earthquake, accidental deletion, software corruption, or simply a system crash – all of these could wipe out your valuable data instantly. Thus it is imperative to save a copy of your data to a secondary location for quick availability during a disaster. But what is the best approach to securing your data?

Most conventional solutions include putting data on a tape or storing at an offsite location. However, once these tapes are consumed, you have to purchase new ones or overwrite on existing tapes. Moreover, tapes are very expensive and tape vaulting is highly time consuming. Such traditional solutions are error-prone too and can cause a delay in recovery.

Cloud backup solutions, on the other hand, help you protect both your individual files and business data given a wide range of features offered. IDrive cloud backup is one such feature-rich online backup solution with the ability to protect unlimited devices to a single account. Furthermore, IDrive provides you the ability to manage all your online backup activities from a single web console.

IDrive online backup is built to store data from unlimited PCs, Macs, iPhones, iPads and Android devices into a single account, at one price. While most other cloud backup services charge per computer or device, IDrive online backup allows data transfer from unlimited devices to your cloud account, without extra charges.
