backups for africa

Backing up information and data is essential for any home or business user! This is so that all information is recoverable in the event of disaster or some kind of data failure. 

This could include your hard drive crashing, a device being stolen, power surges damaging a device, fire or water damage, a virus or a ransomware attack. Instead of facing the prospect of lost work, missing information or the loss of precious memories, it is always a good idea to back up your machines.

Any data which is not backed up is sadly susceptible to being lost or damaged, that’s why africaonline’s Backups for Africa gives you the ultimate peace of mind. 

Product Description

Backups for Africa is a software solution which ensures that your critical data is stored, backed up and easily recoverable in the event of theft, virus attack or hardware failure. 

The data will be securely backed up to the cloud with redundancy and is available to be restored to your device or accessed wherever and whenever you have connection to the internet. Easy! 

The solution gets installed on your local machine or server by our professional team and will recover your information to the last point prior to corruption or loss. 

Why backup your data?  

Need convincing? We’ve compiled a list of our favourite stats and facts which underscore the necessity of data backups: 

  • Approximately 37% of global organizations said they were the victim of some form of ransomware attack in 2021
  • Small businesses are especially vulnerable as they do not always have firewalls or other ransomware protection in place
  • 1 in 10 computers is infected with viruses monthly
  • Files are often deleted or overwritten due to user error
  • Corruption of data is possible due to hardware or software failure
  • Removable media can be unreliable and become compromised  

Safe to say then, that backing up is not just recommended, it’s in fact essential!
