Importance of an Automated Backup Solution

An automated data backup solution is cost-effective and easy to implement in any setting.


If you contact a data recovery company, chances are you did not have a proper backup solution in place for your data. Our data recovery engineers are equipped to handle your data loss situation. However, having an organized backup solution in place will keep you from experiencing the stress and potential business costs associated with losing data. 

In today’s technology-driven world, an automated backup solution is a necessity. Not only does this save your information, but it saves you or your business time that would have been spent recovering from a data loss disaster. Lack of an automated backup solution is not a luxury you or your business can afford.

Why Do I Need a Backup Solution?

The number of cybersecurity threats has only grown in recent years. In addition to the digital dangers, natural disasters and human error mean your data is constantly at risk. Comparitech.com and Acronis.com have both published statistics about the circumstances and frequency of losing information.

  • 140,000 hard drives fail in the United States each week.
  • 35% of data loss is caused by malware.
  • 22% of small businesses stop business after a ransomware attack.
  • Over 20% of businesses that experience data loss lose customers. Almost half of these companies lose more than 20% of their customer base.

Malware, fire and water damage, and accidental deletion are common scenarios that data recovery companies hear about from clients on a daily basis. A proper backup solution is cost-effective and easy to implement, saving your company time and funds that come with recovering from a data loss situation.

Types of Automated Backup

There are many backup tools available that can fit the needs of an individual user as well as a business. The experts at Secure Data Recovery suggest the 3-2-1 rule for backing up vital information. Any technology user should have 3 full copies of their files. 2 of them should be local backups on physical storage (preferably two different formats) and 1 of them should be offsite such as cloud backup.

Local Backups

These are maintained within on-premise storage devices. You copy your files onto devices such as USB flash drives or external hard drives that are connected to your network. This ensures you have a locally available copy of your files.

Cloud Backups

This form of online storage saves your data on remote servers. Users can then access their files with a valid internet connection. An online backup service such as this has few limitations as far as file type and capacity and is a data loss prevention method in the case your physical storage is damaged.

The Best Solution for You

There are ways to configure any backup strategies so that they perform automatically. In the case of the Cloud and other online storage services, there is a setting that can be used. When using physical data storage solutions, automatic backup is implemented with software.
