The prevailing wisdom when it comes to cybersecurity today is that the only reason you haven’t been hacked or fallen prey to malware, is because nobody has seen value in attacking you just yet. 

The same goes for small to medium enterprises.

Right now, cybercriminals may be targeting large blue-chip firms in hopes of getting a big payout, but small businesses are also a target. Often, they’re a more vulnerable one.

This is because enterprise-grade security does not come cheap. Or at least, that was the case until Dell introduced MozyPro, a backup service that offers SMMEs a cost-effective, simple way to securely backup their most valuable data. 

Secure and off-site

Business owners know that storing backups off-site makes good business sense in the event of a ransomware attack for instance which renders all on-site data worthless. The trouble is that carting around stacks of hard drives is costly; it’s also worth remembering that hard drives can fail.

The cloud, then, offers a great alternative to off-site backups. The physical storage is handled by the cloud provider, and the business need only schedule regular backups and pay the monthly fee.

MozyPro allows a business to set monthly, weekly or even daily backups. To make it even easier to ensure backups occur regularly, MozyPro can be set up and then forgotten about until data needs to be restored. 

Easy access to your files from anywhere

In today’s business environment, many employees are not at a desk for eight hours every day, but they still require access to their files. MozyPro makes this possible with Mozy Sync, a feature that enables remote file access. The software even allows an IT team to give employees the ability to access those files on Android and iOS devices.

This simple solution allows users to save their files to one folder, and then sync them across all of their devices.

Those files are also protected by MozyPro’s enterprise-grade security, so users can shrug off the confines of their business network and remotely access their files securely and safely. 

All files, all platforms

What makes MozyPro great is that it isn’t confined to one platform or system. The software can be used to backup laptops, desktops, virtual servers, and even network attached storage devices. Simply put: if it has data, it can be backed up.

SQL databases, Linux servers, mail exchange servers and the like can all be backed up. And if businesses have hundreds of gigabytes of data to backup, MozyPro offers Mozy Data Shuttle which allows them to send huge initial backups to be synchronised quickly.
