Backup and Restore

Protect your data, mitigate data loss risks and ensure access to vital business information

Don’t let your servers, data, and networks go unmanaged and exposed to risks by ignoring warning signs or failing to perform backups and security tasks on time.


The main goal of backup is to create a copy of your data that can be restored in the event of a data loss. Various accidents can lead to losing your data, such as hardware or software failure or accidental deletion of data by you or your staff. Furthermore, with the global pandemic, cybercrimes have reached unprecedented levels. Therefore, securing your data is more than ever an essential part of protecting your business.

Many different practices can help you keep your data and business protected. One of the most effective ways to prevent data loss is to make regular backups that will allow your data to be restored from an earlier point in time so that your business can fast recover from data corruption, deletions, and unauthorized access. Other practices that you can apply are using safeguard passwords, monitoring your data traffic, and using encryption.

The general idea behind the 3-2-1 Backup strategy is that you should create 3 copies of your data on at least 2 different storage types (for example, disks, NAS, SAN, etc.) and store 1 of them in a remote location.

As a rule of thumb, you should back up anything that can’t be replaced if it’s lost or it would take too much time or resources to replace it. For instance, this might include all kinds of files, CRM databases, configuration files, operating systems, etc. As you can see, there are no limitations of the data types that you can backup to ensure that your business keeps running.

Performing backups on a regular basis is the best way to prevent data loss. It is often better to use a cloud-based solution rather than a physical onsite data storage as in case of robbery, fire, flood, or another incident your onsite physical backup is more likely to become compromised. Another thing is to decide on how long do you need to retain copies of your backups. Depending on the country there may be different laws and regulations you must comply with regarding data retention. Thus, it will be a good idea to consult with a cybersecurity compliance professional to determine what data backup retention requirements that your organization needs to comply with.
