Backing up your company’s data is a must. If your systems crash or your business succumbs to some disaster and your computers and physical records are lost, how vulnerable is the everyday running of your business? How are you going to get back on track and resume business as usual?

Important things to note:
Backups are only as good as your recovery
There is no point having good backup systems if it takes you days to recover the files. How much money and opportunities would be lost if your company’s operations were down for a week?
Hindsight won’t help you
The worst time to find out if your backups fail is when you need to restore them.
Imagine thinking you have good backups only to find you don’t when you need the data. You can only be sure if you regularly test your recovery procedures. Use our Data Recovery as a Service (DRaaS) to never have this happen to you.
Backups need to be updated/changed as cloud technology is adopted
Your company’s security rests on you knowing where your important data is located and how to secure and recover it as and when you need to. Companies often have a backup strategy that was good when it was implemented but doesn’t protect their cloud investment or a new server that was added after the backup. Upgrading your software without upgrading your backup strategy leaves you vulnerable to large gaps in your data storage. Backup policies need to be created, checked and updated regularly.
Why trust one busy employee with your business security?
Often businesses ask their administrative staff to swap tapes or take a backup offsite. Is it fair and reasonable to trust them to always remember to do this job? Murphy’s Law dictates that the day you have data loss is the day they forget.
Criminals are using Ransomware to encrypt and corrupt your data AND backups.
An off-site, tamper-proof backup is the only guaranteed way to protect your business from Ransomware attacks.

What our partners say
I felt compelled to write this to reaffirm my appreciation and gratitude for the supreme service you and your Team always delivered to my business and my home, and continue to offer handworks, and hopefully to share this with anyone who may be considering using Network Overdrive for their IT needs.
Throughout the six odd years that you took care of my previous business, Network Overdrive and all of its people ensured that our business IT functions always operated smoothly and simply.
We were a design based business in the homewares industry, with 12 computers and 14 ‘not very IT literate’ users; it could not have been your easiest account!
You and Network Overdrive were instrumental in ‘evolving’ us and our operation into the 21st century with ease and security. From email hosting and simple ongoing back-ups to competitively supplying hardware and integrating new software programmes; from ongoing, at call troubleshooting to ever reliable advice and guidance, you and your Team were always pleasant, efficient, and more than capable. You made it happen and enabled us to ‘keep up’.
Now that I am part of a much smaller operation in Handworks, nothing about Network Overdrive has changed. We can still rely on you totally, for any and every IT need, and definitely feel as supported and up to date with 3 computers as we did with 12.
I will continue to recommend you to businesses large and small, and I both congratulate and thank you Greg, and wish you continued excellence.
