Data backup has become an integral part of modern businesses today. Now it’s possible to store terabytes of data in tiny, cheap disks, but, there was a time when storage devices used to weigh in tonnes. Though this reduction in the physical size of storage devices has made the accessibility part easier, they have now become vulnerable to being lost or stolen.

As the data continues to grow, data security and backup are crucial for businesses and it has become increasingly important to implement proper security protocols. As in their absence, important business data can get lost, resulting in reputation loss, revenue loss, and ultimately business loss.
