BOSTON – September 19, 2012 –
The popularity of “bring your own device” (BYOD) policies — which allow employees to conduct business on their own computers and devices — requires small business owners to take a look at their backup policy. Carbonite
, a leading provider of online backup solutions for consumers and small to medium sized businesses, reminds business owners that it’s important for employees to use an automatic office backup solution to ensure that irreplaceable business files are safe.
While allowing employees to run reports and check email on their personal computers increases productivity, BYOD also heightens the risk of data loss from device loss, theft, malfunction or accidental file deletion. Carbonite Business automatically backs up all of the important documents, emails and records on each user’s computer whenever they are connected to the internet. Employees will no longer have to take time away from their work to back up files, remember to run a program or plug in an external device.
Small businesses often have limited IT budgets, but this doesn’t mean that their data needs to be vulnerable. Here are a few of the benefits Carbonite Business offers small business owners:
- Ability to back up an unlimited number of computers, external hard drives and NAS devices for one flat annual rate.
- Administrative dashboard that allows businesses to check in on business data storage capacity, see which employees are fully backed up, and add new users and devices to their business online backup plan.
- Anytime, Anywhere Access gives employees remote access to files in their business backup from nearly any internet-connected device, including computers, smartphones and tablets.
Starting at just $229 per year, Carbonite
offers an affordable, reliable way for small to medium sized businesses to back up their valuable data. Carbonite Business
backs up an unlimited number of computers for a predictable, flat fee with 250GB of storage included. Carbonite Business Premier
