Overview

 

Are you doing everything you can to protect your critical data?

While local and tape backups offer essential protection against day-to-day dangers—deleted files, crashed servers, corrupt workstations—they cannot protect your business against threats to primary production equipment:

 

For responsible backup & recovery, you need a “dual protection” strategy

Dual protection is the practice of boosting your local backup plan by adding an additional redundant offsite plan. By storing your backups both locally and offsite, you effectively double your protection and guarantee reliable access to your data in the event of a disaster.

By leveraging both local and offsite storage, you get the best of both worlds:

With a dual protection strategy, your data is always protected and always available when you need it.
