Small business advised to back up data

Small business advised to backup data
Symantec has today announced the availability of a new data back-up and recovery solution for small business, following the results of the Small and Mid-Sized Disaster Preparedness Survey in September 09, which found that the average SME has experienced three outages within the past 12 months, as a result of poor data recovery solutions.
According to Symantec, the new system, Backup Exec System Recovery 2010, automates the backup process of an entire system or individual files and folders without disrupting user productivity.
“Today’s small businesses need the peace of mind that only comes with a cost-effective, reliable backup and recovery solution that will protect their information and systems to minimise downtime and avoid disaster,” said Pat Hanavan, vice president, Symantec Information Management Group.
The disaster preparedness survey of 1,650 revealed that there is a large discrepancy between small and mid-sized businesses (SMBs) perceive their disaster readiness when it comes to protecting their data and their actual level of preparedness.
According to Steve Martin, SMB director, Pacific region of Symantec, there is a lack of understanding within small organisations about what they are doing to protect themselves and whether it is enough.
“Many SMBs are trading under the midguided belief that they are protected and have all their bases covered…. but the reality is a different story.”
Hanavan said the Backup Exec System Recovery 2010 provides small businesses with affordable protection so they can easily recover what they need, when they need it and to whatever physical or virtual environment they want.
