We believe when it comes to computer security, a user's backup should be top priority. Simply because your backed up data always acts as your last resort. Other security products such as Antivirus and Internet Security Software Suites are surely important to keep your PC securely running, but your own data and data backup should always be a top priority. Because what's all PC security worth when you lost your data?!
Compare with traditional backup
So you already you do backups the traditional way, e.g. locally on an external hard drive or other media. That is at least better than having no backup. But disaster strikes in all kinds of forms, e.g. a backup media failure or theft. In the latter case your data is not only lost for you, but someone else has it, if you did not encrypt your backup data. You choose what's worse. A piece of advice: If you store important data and create local backups, make sure to encrypt your data locally also.
Two myths about backups
There are a number of old myths around the subject backup - too difficult, too expensive, hard drives are secure media, etc.
Due to improved knowledge these are nowadays outdated and computer users are aware that a backup of important data
at home makes sense and for professional users is mission-critical without
The following two myths are persistent until today among
Myth 1: Backups at home are safe
According to popular belief, backups at home are safe. This is
unfortunately not so. Backups at home are always at risk one way or the
other. For example there is no protection from theft and other
disasters can lead to data loss, eg fire, etc. For the same reasons you
do not store cash under the mattress at home, but deposit the money in
a well protected bank, you should not store your backups at home.
Because an online backup provides the important local separation of
original data and data backups, only this way data is effectively
protected against such risks.
Myth 2: Online backup
This is also a widespread legend, some of which is even true if users
upload their data to storage space of service providers such as Google
and Microsoft often transmitted or stored unencrypted. Third parties
can basically access these unencrypted data, so it is unsecure.
Furthermore, these non-specialized services do not provide any
guarantee that the data will be available the next day. Therefore we do
not recommend to store important files by using unsecure services.
Online backup services of serious players such as Mozy, Symantec, or
UpdateStar offer protection through the use of high-security encryption
combined with secure data centers. With these service providers your
backups are in good hands. 130,000 user accounts are managed on our
server facilities. Only an encrypted offsite data backup offers
complete protection - safer than at home.
