While designing a data backup and disaster recovery plan in an organization, it is usually configured for nodes that are connected within the network, generally the servers and the workstations. Any data that is distributed out of the network, or living on the fringes of the network, very rarely gets covered or never covered in the disaster recovery plan. IBM estimates that up to 60% of the data in an organization is sitting “on the edge of the network” or on the “nodes that move in and out of the network”. These include laptops, mobile devices, even branch offices, which are usually not included in the central disaster recovery plan. As a result, remote user data is vulnerable, to data loss.
The data created and used by your remote team is on the very edge of your network. As such, it is often outside the reach of your central backup. Protecting the digital assets within this fleet is a unique challenge requiring a dedicated solution.
Some of the advanced features which you should scout for in a disaster recovery plan, to protect the data on your network’s edge are:
Continuous Data Protection
Your files should get 24×7 data protection through Cloud Sync. All your files should be backed up whenever you make a slightest modification in them. Every new version of your file must be backed up instantly and stored in a secured environment. You should be able to roll back to any version of your files using time machine feature and recover the snapshot of your files and versions.
Over 80% of data loss occurs due to accidental deletion. Your backup provider should ensure that it will keep every version of every file forever until you want to remove it. While most online backup systems will delete a file from your backup when you delete the file on your laptop, a proper backup would mean that only the user who created the file should decide when to delete it. Your data should be kept safe until you decide to delete it. This is needed as an ideal solution for any business that’s required by law to retain all their old data. Importantly, all this solution (ideally) should be provided free of cost to the customers.
With your laptop backup solution you should be able to perform an instantaneous backup any time, and schedule monthly, weekly, daily or hourly backups. It should run only when you schedule or request it, keeping you safe without impacting your system performance. There should be easy to interpret taskbar notifications that enable you to track when your backup is running; also optional email confirmation should be provided to inform you that your backup has been completed.
