Security is another concern that should be examined. Does the cloud provider provide encryption during both transfer and storage? Do they also allow you to keep control over the encryption or do they hold the key? You need to find out who has access to your data in order to assess any possible threats to company data.
Human error is the leading cause of data loss. If you or someone you have authorized to use the account accidentally deletes files, you must ensure that you have a copy of the file to restore it.
Whether you're an individual user, a small business owner or a large enterprise, you will benefit greatly from a solid cloud backup plan. CloudHQ provides this backup but it's so much more than just a backup. Other backup providers offer to back up your data once a day, once a week or even once a month. If you experience data loss during this time, you can still lose a lot of data. With cloudHQ, the replication is instantaneous and automatic so all you have to do is set it and forget it. CloudHQ runs in the background completely transparent to you. But every time you add a file, it is instantly copied and backed up. Every time you revise a file, the revision is instantly backed up. So if you experience data loss, your restore point will be form seconds ago- not hours, not days and definitely not weeks. Often, other backup providers want you to perform your backups manually. If you forget, tough luck. With cloudHQ, the replication is instant and transparent so you are not interrupted in your work. And if you accidentally get locked in to a certain cloud provider, cloudHQ ensures that you maintain control over your data so that you can yank your data away at any point in time and do what you wish with it.
