What is Backup Software?

Backup software enables the creation of supplementary exact copies of computer files, folders, documents, databases or entire computers that can be used to restore the original data in the event of data loss due to human errors, system failures, or natural disasters.

Why backup matters? (now more than ever)

In an ever-growing digitally-dependent world, where information rules above all else, effectively managing and safeguarding the data, locating it quickly, and determining how best to exploit it is the key to business vitality. As the speed, variety and complexity of data continue to accelerate, so do the risks of not being able to timely restore critical systems and applications in cases of disasters or data loss. The problem is that many organization are still using old technologies to protect today’s digital assets that are vital to their business. The biggest challenge with traditional backup software solutions is that they are not architected for today’s dynamic and elastic IT environments; relying on them can impact the enterprise’s ability to meet business needs, stay agile and manage risk.
