Why are cloud backups paramount for optimal data protection?

  • It supports the 3-2-1 Backup Rule, which states: Have 3 copies of your data; stored on 2 different types formats (i.e. tape, disk, cloud, etc.), with 1 kept off-site (cloud for example).
  • It’s also easy to access and cost-effective. Shield yourself and your business from ransomware, disasters, hardware crashes, computer theft and accidental deletion by quickly restoring your data at any time.
  • Save resources and storage space. Our cloud storage is affordable and scalable.
  • Stay compliant with industry regulations like HIPAA, FERPA and GLBA. All data stored in the NovaBACKUP Cloud is encrypted, compressed and hosted in our secure US data center.
