    Companies should consider data backup for home office solutions

    In the corona crisis, many companies introduced home office solutions.While doing so, companies should consider data backup and take some important points into account.

    Home Office For Everyone Whose Tasks Allow It

    This is how companies reduce the risk of infection for their staff and other people. Much is improvised in a hurry and some solutions are only provisional. However, this increases the risk of ransomware attacks. Companies should regularly back up all documents to avoid data loss. The following tips should help companies to establish a successful data backup in their home office.

    Challenges For Data Backup And Data Security

    The work of the employees in the home office creates new challenges: for IT security, with regard to compliance and other legal provisions, but also to back up the data. Companies that have already implemented a concept with central data storage and clients.
    An important aspect should be taken into account here: the large number of VPN connections from workplaces increases the risk of a malware attack. Thanks to the network connections, the malware has easy access to the company network and the central backup. In this case it is important to protect the backup separately.This is possible by using tape libraries. Under certain conditions, cloud backups can also offer additional protection. Here the costs and the often long restore times have to be considered.

    Data Backup In The Home Office

    If the data is not only central to the company, but also to the workstations in the home office, it becomes more complicated. A local backup of the systems on USB hard drives or local systems is only a temporary solution for freelancers and small businesses. One problem: the lack of central control. The question of who is responsible for data backup also arises in this context. The fact that uncontrolled copies of company data exist in the employees private rooms constitutes a conflict with applicable data protection regulations.
