Wrongful account terminations from the cloud service providers are another cause. If your account is wrongfully suspected of breaking the TOS, your account can be closed and your data will be instantly unavailable to you or your employees, staff, and clients. Even if the account is reinstated, the data isn't always recoverable. This is why a secure backup in a different account is heavily recommended.
Malicious deletion is when a hacker or perhaps even an employee with a grudge gains access to the account and deletes data on purpose.
If an accidental or malicious deletion occurs, the continuous replication of data that cloudHQ provides will still be intact because it is on a different account, with different authentication measures that are totally unrelated to the company information. This means that even if a hacker gains access to the account, or even if your laptop gets stolen or a disgruntled employee deletes data, cloudHQ's backup remains intact and restoring it is extremely simple.
If your account is wrongfully terminated, the data is still available to you on the separate account so you can continue working and you will still have access to your data while you work with the cloud service provider to resolve the issue. If the cloud server goes down for maintenance or other issues, you will be unable to access your data unless you have cloudHQ's backup to a separate cloud account. With cloudHQ, you can continue your work uninterrupted as your data will always be available to you.
