A backup for your files might be useful in the event of your data being corrupted, damaged or deleted during a catastrophe. Having a good backup plan means less work of recovering the data you lost, or simply keeping you from losing data at all. You can backup your data in many different ways to make the recovery possible such as a usb flash drive, a cloud, or a disk. Flash drives and other local storage risk being lost or stolen, but cloud backup cannot be misplaced, and is protected by a strong encryption.
Why cloud backup is better than others
A cloud is probably one of the best ways you can backup your files, because you can access your data from anywhere an internet connection is available even after disaster strikes and everything on site is destroyed. Cloud backup compared to local backup solutions provides more security, availability, and reliability. With CST Cloud you dont have to worry about keeping your data safe, because we get alerts if anything goes wrong. CST Cloud is automated and can be managed remotely. Another benefit of our cloud solution over on-site backup is the different location of your backup. When a flood hit Duluth, Minnesota recently, anyone using only a local backup solution lost data, even though they had a backup “ON SITE.” Using a cloud solution instead, the data would not have been destroyed during the flood. A good cloud backup provides disaster recovery plan, quarterly disaster recovery testing, and backup restore support.
The HIPAA security rule ensures that the confidentiality of your data is maintained, and protected against threats or hazards. Since clouds are not on site, it keeps your data safe from threats and hazards including storms and fires. CST Cloud has strong encryption to guarantee confidentiallity applying a 256 bit AES storage, and 128 bit SSL transfers.
Dont just get a local backup, get CST Cloud, it is much more efficent and you dont have to carry it with you all the time.
