Hardware Failure or Zombie Apocalypse, Is your Data Secure?

Data loss, for whatever reason, should be an inconvenience not a disaster. A good data backup plan will make the difference.


Online Backup Service vs Traditional Offsite Storagedata-backup-icon

Traditional data backup, sometimes referred to as remote data backup or offsite databackup, allows providers to back up data to a remote, offsite location. Cloud based data backup or online data backup allows providers to back up data over existing internet bandwidth. Combining the two gives your practice the ability to implement a data protection strategy that includes offsite storage of your data backup without requiring physical transportation of the data from your location to another remote storage location. Instead, you define your backup schedule, and the backup software will encrypt and send the data to a secure data center instantly, giving you easy offsite data protection.

If you are doing the backups and storing them offsite yourself, your going to be alone in an emergency. If you are using a third party then you have someone to turn to but are they up to the task? Not all backup providers are alike and your business cannot wait until a major data loss occurs to discover your backup provider cannot restore your data. This is even more important if you are using an EHR.

The next generation of backup providers are cloud based solutions. Utilizing the internet, these providers have the ability to respond quickly as there is no physical transporting of data in either the backup or restore processes. This not only allows for faster backups and recovery but also allows for cost savings.
