Managed Backups: Your Custom-Fitted Parachute for Data Safety

Post by
Net Friends
Imagine embarking on a thrilling skydiving adventure. Would you ever leap without a well-tested, safety-proof parachute? The same applies in the realm of business. Data backups are your custom-fitted parachute, ensuring you land safely, even when data mishaps threaten to send you into a freefall.

Why Managed Backups?

At Net Friends, we understand that every business is unique, and so are its data backup requirements. That is why we offer Managed Backups.

Our engagement begins with interviewing every department in your company. We use these insights to inform our data mapping process, ensuring we understand the data interdependencies and the criticality of different data sets. This not only addresses your teams' issues directly, but it also adds to company-wide buy-in and greater departmental alignment with the data backups strategy we design for your business. This human-centered approach, combined with our technical acuity, forms the foundation of a customized backup solution, tailor-made to secure your business's precious data. With Net Friends, you have a reliable, trustworthy partner to manage your backups and bring significant benefits to your business.

The 3-2-1 Rule of Data Backups: Ensuring Triple Safety

The 3-2-1 rule is an industry best practice when it comes to data backups. It stipulates that you should have three copies of your data, stored on two distinct types of media, with one of them located off-site. Adhering to this rule ensures that your data has the highest level of safety against diverse threats. At Net Friends, we incorporate this rule into our Managed Backup solution, which is a feature of NetVisor, giving your data a triple layer of protection.
