Device configurations need to be backed up as well

Device configurations need to be backed up often to maintain a repository of backups ready to be restored in case of emergencies. In large enterprises with more number of devices, this task of getting the device configuration backup up becomes a huge mundane task taking up most of the time of an admin. Being able to automate configuration backups will free up a network admin’s time to do productivity enhancing tasks.

Any change made to the device configuration in a network carries the possibility of an error. An erroneous configuration change can cause network issues ranging from performance degradation to network outage. This is particularly true for those network devices that are crucial for the infrastructure. Any change in such devices should be detected and the configuration file of the device must be backed up.

Unauthorized configuration changes often wreak havoc to the business continuity and hence detecting changes is a crucial task. Detection should be real-time to have effective control. Network Configuration Manager offers real-time configuration change detection.

All of these are reasons why you should have an automated software solution to backup and monitor your network infrastructure.

Secure Offsite server backup software provides more than piece of mind

Data is the most important aspect of your computer. An operating system can be reinstalled and so can applications, but it may be difficult or impossible to recreate your original data.

It is essential that you always back up your important information and have a plan for recovering from a system failure. An attacker could crash a computer’s operating system or data may be corrupted or wiped out by a hardware problem.

Whether you run a small business or work for a large corporation, your data is important as that’s the powerhouse of information for making future strategies, providing better services to clients and for measuring both challenges and progress of your business.

Your organizational data needs to be protected for growth of your server backup and you cannot and should not simply consider it as a secondary task to be given attention to in your spare time as data once lost can never be recovered to the full extent.

There are many factors which cause loss of information, like hardware failure, power outage, data corruption, human errors, disasters, and criminal activities like hacking, theft, malicious activities etc.

With an offsite backup solution, you can securely access, restore or administer data from anywhere. It guarantees high level of security and peace of mind as it allows data storage off site/online. It helps you in saving time and costs too.

It provides much better protection against the natural disasters. Also allows unlimited amount of data retention. Moreover, it does not need any manual tasks to change tapes, label CDs etc.  Thus, remote backup is the preferred method of backup.
