Backup and Sync
Data Backup Onsite
Your business data is usually at its most vulnerable when stored on-site without proper backup procedures in place. Theft, misuse or accidental deletion can easily occur when files are stored unencrypted, on easily accessible, unsecured workstations. A ransom or malware attack on your local office network resulting in important files being locked or corrupted is an additional risk and concern if you haven’t got a recent backup to rely upon in this eventuality.
QLine IT offers the ability to have all your workstations’ data including emails, media files and documents automatically backed up to a centralised, encrypted (and therefore GDPR compliant) storage unit using a schedule that will never impact upon your company’s active hours or slow down your all important IT infrastructure.
In the event of a recovery being required QLine IT can in most circumstances restore the required data remotely, meaning that your downtime is significantly reduced.
Contact us to help create a complete onsite data backup solution plan which is easily adoptable and straight-forward for all your staff to understand, meaning instant disaster recovery protection for your business.
Secure Offsite Backup
Having a secure offsite backup of data is a serious step up from keeping just a local copy.
Our automated background backup process occurs without your staff having to remember to back up, so human error is no longer a potential factor in the loss of data. QLine IT also offer 30-day versioning meaning any particular revision of a file within that time period is recoverable, you no longer have to worry about the contents of an important document or spreadsheet being accidentally over-written by staff or your Clients. Should you ever be unfortunate enough to suffer a ransom or malware attack, versioning also allows us to restore your data by rolling back to a time just before the incident occurred keeping data loss to an absolute minimum.
Our servers are located within heavily secured data centres, using military grade encryption with no public access meaning not only are you protected against direct theft, it’s also your best option in counteracting cybercrime and never experiencing a loss of critical company data.
In compliance with the recently introduced GDPR (General Data Protection Regulation), all the servers QLine IT use are based within the EU meaning a smooth transition from your current system and no requirement to notify your customers. Daily reports are also available, so you are easily able to track exactly what data you have stored in your offsite data backup at all times.
Cloud Data Storage
For a seamless working environment across multiple sites, devices and personnel, you need cloud data storage.
Cloud data backup allows you to enjoy the benefits of having a completely secure, off-site data backup service, as well as the additional feature of having that data available to selected staff on demand, regardless of whether they’re in front of their computer or not.
As with an off-site backup your data will be stored in secure data centres within the EU to simplify your ability to remain GDPR compliant. It also features up to 30 days versioning, so any accidents are easily recoverable.
Other features include SSL (Secure Sockets Layer) so your uploads and downloads cannot be intercepted, 256-bit encryption – the standard for military & government owned data and two factor authentication, so you can be sure any data on a device taken outside your organisation is safe from theft.
Of course, in practice, this technology works hardest at allowing your workforce to be more productive. Staff can collaborate on documents from different departments or offices, and you no longer have to wait for someone to return from a meeting before getting their report. Talk to QLine IT today about how cloud computing can expand your business’ workflow.
A NAS (network attached storage) drive acts as a combination of cloud storage combined with all the functionality of a traditional (larger, noisier and less economical) file server allowing your business to retain complete control of your data whilst allowing access to staff that require it, across all of their devices. Hierarchical controls enable you to keep sensitive data secured and available only on a level-by-level basis.
NAS technology can be a more cost-effective solution for small and large businesses who need to keep a large volume of data available to their workforce. As free cloud storage can be very restrictive in terms of how much data you can upload before you are required to upgrade to a higher capacity tariff, opting for a NAS drive can offset that by offering better value over several years with all the added benefits of a centralised and encrypted backup device.
A NAS system is completely customisable to your businesses’ needs and can be as secure as all other backup and storage solutions. It can be installed alongside your existing network infrastructure in only a few hours. Get in touch to discuss your network needs today!
