When was the last time you backed up your data?

24 August 2017

When was the last time you backed up your data? Chances are if you are like most people your answer is never!

Important data needs to be backed up regularly. This applies to businesses and individuals, whether it’s family photos, educational qualifications or business data on your laptop.

Data lost may never be recovered and may cause emotional or financial damage. That is why you should always have your data backed up to prevent losing valuable information in the event your device is lost, stolen, or your company falls victim to a ransomware attack. 

In previous articles, we spoke about the importance of securing your devices at home and for your business. This article talks about the importance of backing up your data and how ZOL enables you to do that.

Whilst there are quite a number of data back-up options available, none gives you value for money quite like ZOL’s CrashPlan for Africa.

What is CrashPlan for Africa?
Crash Plan for Africa is a data back-up and protection service offered by ZOL that allows you to secure and access all your data anytime, anywhere and from any device.

It automatically backs up every version of every file forever. This is different to the usual cloud based back-up systems such as Google Drive or DropBox which just backs up the current version.

What are the benefits of using Crash Plan for Africa

1. Highly Secure
It is highly secure as data is encrypted as it is being backed and only the user can see the data as it’s encrypted. Not even ZOL or CrashPlan can see the backed up data. Furthermore, CrashPlan for Africa’s security has never been breached.  You can go about your work and have peace of mind knowing your data is safe and secure.

2. Accessible
CrashPlan for Africa gives you the ability to access your data from anywhere in the world. This flexibility allows you to work on the go as you can easily retrieve a document when you need it easily through the online portal or the mobile app.

3. Provides automatic back up
It automatically backs up data in the background which means you will not have to worry about manually backing up your data cutting down on your administrative work.

Which packages are available?
For home, you can back-up your data using either the 30Gb, 50Gb or 100Gb mulit-device plans offered under CrashPlan for Africa. Business users have more flexibility as they be set up on plans on with unlimited storage or plans that suit their needs.

It’s very user friendly which makes installation and restoring data easy.
