Companies fail to secure or backup data as time cited as the main concern

Posted in General Business,PCI,Security by ebs4pos on September 28, 2009

Over a quarter of small and medium enterprises (SMEs) are not backing up company data, while a third have conceded that they failed to secure data.

New research from Buffalo Technology found that data loss is being risked as data backup is being overlooked by SMEs. When these businesses were asked why this was the case, time (34 per cent), security worries (16 per cent) and not being concerned (14 per cent) were listed as the main reasons. Other small businesses (13 per cent) found complexity a barrier.

However, 46 per cent said that they would backup all of their data if the process was automated and 23 per cent said they would if it was quicker and easier. Security and reliability also featured as influential reasons.
