Centennial, Colorado – (The Hosting News) – June 30, 2006 –
Hosting and managed services for small to midsized companies and partner firm, Verio, has released its PC Data Backup service for small businesses, designed to protect critical data and work documents stored on personal computers connected to a hosted server.
Verio has partnered with Iron Mountain Incorporated, an information protection and storage service provider, to deliver the technology that automatically backs up and restores business files and data in mirrored offsite, secure data center facilities, improving data availability while reducing recovery costs.
A recent poll of Verio customers indicated that many small businesses are not aware of the risks or threat of sudden data loss and the potential impact to their businesses. Those polled expressed an interest in an easy-to-use service that can protect their assets at an affordable cost and are more likely to back up critical data if offered flexible pricing options that support business growth strategies. Verio’s PC Data Backup solution was developed as an Internet-based tool that protects businesses from data loss due to hard disk drive failure, data corruption, virus infections or accidental deletion. A simple user interface enables users to backup one or more PC laptops and/or desktops at one time and to watch backups as they occur via the installed application.
Particularly for small businesses and home-based business users with limited IT budgets and scarce resources, PC Data Backup was designed to be a cost-effective way to ensure data is always secure and restored on Verio’s systems. The PC Data Backup service includes Verio’s 24×7 management and staffing. Small businesses primarily backing up word processing documents and simple spreadsheets or financial information can choose from plans offering 2 GBs or 10 GBs of backup, while businesses that need to secure larger media files, digital photographs, or higher volumes of data can choose a plan offering 30 GBs of backup storage.
Verio’s PC Data Backup features include: Secure data protection for important personal and business files, rapid recovery and simple file restoration Government-level encryption during transmission and storage Mirrored storage at multiple sites, insuring against physical disaster to a data center 99.99 percent uptime, ensuring user access to data 24x7x365.
Dennis Boyle, Chief Operating Officer for Verio commented, ”The prevalence of data risks such as PC viruses and malfunction, malware intrusion and computer hacking have forced small businesses to take a more proactive approach in protecting their valuable information.”
Kiyoshi Maeda, President and Acting Chief Executive Officer for Verio added, ”Anyone who’s experienced a data loss on their PC knows how devastating it can be. This is a big problem, and Verio offers a simple and effective solution to prevent this kind of loss. PC Data Backup is the answer to ensuring company data is easily and readily available, secured and stored for retrieval.”
