UK SMEs in Data Recovery Failure

Many of the small and medium sized businesses in UK are still failing to protect the important data of their firms. This is according to a survey by Vanson Bourne and commissioned by Acronis. About 600 small and medium sized businesses from France, UK and Germany took part in the study. It was accomplished to gauge the differences in backup adn data recovery practices among all the 3 countries.

According to the findings of the survey while coming to data recovery, UK has the worst attitude. About 38 percent of UK SMEs are claiming to never back up. On comparison with France and Germany, it is just 6 percent and 9 percent respectively.

Though UK has worst attitude towards data recovery, UK firms are most confident of making a faster recover in case of hardware crash or computer virus.

As per the survey, about 63 percent of the organizations take at least a day or more in order to recover from system downtime.

Serious threats like failure can be avoided by using simple backup procedures and the key data can be stored off-site of even in the ‘cloud’. There are many number of choices to back up the data.
