Preventing data loss, corruption, and disclosure of sensitive information from unauthorized access, a server crash, human error or a natural disaster is critical to the long term success and staying power of any business. Implementing a data backup system that guarantees the full recovery of all data can mean the difference between seamless business continuity and complete paralysis of all essential business operations in the face of an unforeseen data loss emergency. However, it is not enough to simply implement an effective backup system – the backup system must be continuously monitored to ensure all data is successfully backed up as scheduled. Because of the time and capital expense involved with monitoring a backup system in-house, more and more business decision-makers are opting for a managed backup solution, outsourcing the management of their backup system to a company with special expertise in data backup and allocating in-house resources where they can be used more efficiently.
Managed data backup systems are convenient data storage solutions that enable businesses to simply and securely store all critical data while spending less capital and administration time dealing with the implementation and management of the backup system. With a managed backup system, a third party provider continuously monitors the system to ensure successful backups are completed as scheduled. Because a managed backup system requires that you entrust your company’s most valuable asset to a third party, it imperative you choose a managed backup service provider with an impeccable professional reputation and extensive experience in data backup system management. LiveVault, the recognized leader in managed backup, offers a highly effective online managed data backup service that utilizes multiple layers of security not only to protect the integrity and immediate availability of your company’s important data, but also to ensure the seamless performance of your backup system.
The LiveVault Managed Backup Solution
The LiveVault managed backup solution offers an automated online backup system that is compliant with federal regulations and includes comprehensive monitoring. This combination delivers one of the most reliable and secure managed backup services in the industry. With LiveVault, your entire network server is fully encrypted at the source and transferred over a secure Internet connection to two geographically remote data storage facilities where password-protected copies of the encrypted files are electronically vaulted. Once the initial server backup has been successfully completed, the LiveVault online back system automatically backs up any new or modified files during backup periods scheduled by the client. Throughout the entire backup process, a team of qualified LiveVault technicians continuously monitors the system to ensure each backup has been successfully completed as scheduled. LiveVault technicians also keep the client informed of the backup status with regular reports.
The LiveVault online managed backup system utilizes four levels of security to ensure the online backup system is fully functional:
- LEVEL 1: An email notification verifying a successful backup is automatically sent to the client from the server after each scheduled backup occurs.
- LEVEL 2: Periodic status reports that detail when the backup occurred, how much data was backed up, and how many historical backups are retained in the vaults are sent to both the client and LiveVault technicians. These reports are sent on a daily, weekly or monthly basis, whichever the client prefers.
- LEVEL 3: If a regularly scheduled backup fails to occur, LiveVault sends an inactive backup notification to the client within a few days. This allows the client to check for any problems and ensure that a successful backup is completed.
- LEVEL 4: If the client does not respond to the inactive backup notification, LiveVault technicians, who monitor all inactive backups on a daily basis, personally contact the client to make sure the client is aware of the failed backup.
When it comes to protecting your data, no precaution should be spared.
