There are over a hundred file sharing and backup providers offering their cloud services.
Every year we used to research the top 30 or so and produce a detailed comparison sheet.
Now we don’t. The reason?
The first question we ask them is: Do you offer 1 click restoration of all files?
If they answer “Yes”, then they get to the next stage of testing. If “No”, then we will not use them.
Why is this important? If you have thousands of files and photos etc that have been encrypted by the latest Ransomware, you will be faced with restoring these thousands of files one by one.
The services below allow you to restore all your files to just before the infection. This will save you days, if not weeks of recovery time.
Dropbox for Backup and Syncing. MozyHome for Backup
Commercial (backup and sync):
Dropbox for Business. Autotask Workplace File Sync and Share.
These commercial services have more features such as File Locking so users cannot overwrite each others files. They also have additional corporate features like remote data wipe, enhanced security and better support.
We’ll be able to determine the best fit for you.
