Ensure business compliance and data protection with IDrive cloud backup

April 25, 2019

Nowadays, information is of utmost importance for almost every business. And, in this era of digitization, data disasters could cause severe damage to your business and the overall reputation of your company.

Therefore, you have to strategize data protection to ensure data availability for the seamless functioning of your business even during adverse times. One of the best solutions is cloud backup. The benefits of using a cloud backup solution are many – it’s simpler, and ensures ease of access and high standards of security.

However, there are a few things that you need to consider while choosing your cloud backup solution. Most importantly, your online backup provider must consider all compliance aspects that your company should adhere to. For example, if your company is into healthcare, your company must comply with the government’s regulatory healthcare norms - HIPAA (Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act), to avoid the penalties levied against violating this standard.

IDrive online backup steps in during such scenarios to provide secure and compliant cloud backup. Not only can you ensure data protection but also achieve compliance management with IDrive cloud backup.
