Rethinking your backup strategy in the new era of remote working

Remote working is here to stay but have you thought about the impact that it has on your backup strategy? If your business is working remotely, it could be time to rethink.

The pandemic has influenced the biggest home working shift we’ve ever seen but it’s also put added pressure on businesses to ensure their Backup strategy and plans are robust, secure, and most importantly, scalable. LIMA’s Back up as a Service cloud solution reduces the chances of your business being disrupted if the worst was to happen.

In this blog, we look at the impact of remote working on Backup as a Service and why moving to the cloud is more necessary than ever...

Ensuring business resiliency

Today’s successful businesses understand that they need to fundamentally rethink and change how they operate. Instead of backing up your data on-premise, which requires Capex investment, ongoing maintenance and internal IT resources, BaaS connects systems to the cloud, all succinctly managed by an outside provider. It enables businesses to continue running and supporting customers without running the risk of unscheduled periods of downtime due to IT systems going offline.

Your BaaS strategy should be able to withstand any changes to the size and scope of the environment. Essentially, you are responsible for keeping all of your company’s technology up and running – and that’s especially challenging when workloads expand and user expectations increase. By using a cloud solution, your data can be automatically backed up with only an internet connection required. These types of online backups provide you with the ability to quickly restore any information you may lose, whenever and from wherever you wish.

Keeping up to date

There’s no denying the benefits of working from home. We can shrink our carbon footprint, reduce overheads and improve our work/life balance. As a result, many businesses have already agreed that it will be implemented long-term. But since the size, scope and working environment has changed so much, it’s important to consider that the traditional methods of on-premise backup might not be fulfilling their purpose.

With your employees working from home, it makes managing your IT systems, data security, backup and recovery a lot more complicated. The questions you should be asking yourself are: “where are our documents stored? Are they on hard drives, on a VPN or in the cloud?” The answer could even be all three.

Protect against cyber attacks

BaaS provides a simple and cost-effective way to keep your IT infrastructure and critical data safe and secure whilst your employees work from home.

It has been reported that cybercriminals are taking advantage of the current climate, meaning an increased risk of online attacks and data breaches. By implementing a secure and reliable BaaS solution, you can mitigate the risk and ensure peace of mind that your data is always protected.
