Access for the Mobile Workforce

  • 23 May, 2007 09:29

<p>For some time now, businesses have been coming accustomed to the necessity of backup.</p>
<p>Backups make a copy of your files for when you lose your data, right?</p>
<p>That is right, but smart backup services can do much more than simply copy files to a secure location. They can manage the issue of access to data, which when you think about it is the driver for backups in the first place.</p>
<p>By looking beneath the surface of backup solutions, you can find that more of your needs are met than simply copying files.</p>
<p>Backup service provider Spheritec, with their Datagard solution, offer mobile workers the ability to access their files from anywhere, whether that’s at home, or around the globe. It’s quite logical when you think about it.</p>
<p>Spheritec Managing Director, David Glavonjic says, ‘Online backup is a powerful data contingency plan. The ‘online’ nature of the service is broadly marketed as a response to the business community’s need for an offsite solution, traditionally a challenging and expensive project. And online backup certainly makes the project easier and more affordable’.</p>
<p>However, a less obvious yet significant feature of online backup services is data access.</p>
<p>According to Spheritec it is a feature that should make businesses even more eager to adopt an online strategy.</p>
<p>Your data that sits on the backup server can be retrieved to any pc with internet connection. Simple-to-use web restore capabilities allow the account holder (with their username and password) to log in – regardless of what pc they are seated at. Through the web interface, you can view all files backed up to the server and select what you need to access from your current location.</p>
<p>Whether you have forgotten to take your laptop home and urgently need a file, are on leave but your boss asks you to make some changes to a document, or you simply want to travel without the burden of a laptop, online backup can step in and provide the access you need.</p>
<p>Visit or call 1300 130 110 for more information on how you can automate your backup process. Subscriptions carry no contract term and start from just $19 per month.</p>
