Security essentials

Over the past few months many people have set up functional work areas in their homes, with hastily established remote access to their organisations’ data. It now seems that a fair proportion of people would like to continue working from home, at least in part, for the foreseeable future which opens up all sorts of possibilities as the country ‘moves forward’.

As the trickle back into workplaces continues, it becomes ever more vital that your data is not only accessible remotely, but that it is securely backed-up, off-site. You will benefit from knowing your data is correctly protected, in line with GDPR, and that it is swiftly recoverable should disaster strike – whether that’s through system or human error, or an external event.

There are different options for data back-up.

Magnetic tape storage involves one of our GPS-tracked vans collecting magnetic tapes from you and taking them to one of our secure storage facilities. Each tape can be bar-coded, with collections and deliveries controlled by you using our asset-tracking software, Dovetail.

The tapes are taken to one of our 14 tape-specific storage locations around the country, each of which has 24-hour security and CCTV, temperature and humidity controls, and environmentally friendly Inergen™ gas in our fire suppression system to keep your tapes in tip-top condition should you need them.

Offsite cloud backups can be scheduled to suit you and we keep them in our state-of-the-art, ultra-secure data centre in Kent.

If you’d like to see one of our locations, or talk to one of our friendly people about backup solutions, just call 0333 060 8909 or drop us a message online.
