BaaS

is a method of offsite data storage in which files, folders, or the entire contents of a hard drive are regularly backed up by a service vendor to a remote secure cloud-based data repository over a network connection.

Featured Services for IT Continuity

Planning a recovery procedure relates directly to the data governance policy. The existence of backup copies does not guarantee an organization’s ability to get back to business in case of interruption. The sooner activities can be resumed, the less financial and operational impacts the organization will experience.
