Data Backup for Small and Medium Businesses: Priorities, Current Practices, and Risks
How secure is small business data?
As the power of computers continues to grow, more and more of the value generated by businesses resides in electronic storage -- everything from customer lists to product plans to accounts receivable. Large enterprises invest heavily to protect that data by backing it up, using a variety of products and technologies.
But how well protected is the data of small and medium-sized companies? How do those businesses back up their information, and are they doing enough to protect the company against loss? Are their data protection practices keeping pace with the growth of their data?
To answer those questions, Rubicon surveyed computing decision-makers at several hundred small and mid-sized businesses (SMBs) in the United States.
