Free hosting could cost your small business
Everyone loves “free” services. Especially for small businesses, the opportunity to stretch a tight budget even further by using a free piece of software is much appreciated.
Protect your uploads
But in the last few weeks a lot of people have had a wake-up call that free is not always the sensible option when it comes to business.
When the FBI seized the servers of the digital filelocker MegaUpload they did it to combat piracy, but an inadvertant effect of that was wiping out the files of many businesses around the world who legitimately used their service to keep backups.
These files are now most likely gone forever without any warning and there is no recourse at all for these businesses. If any positive has come of this situation, it will hopefully serve as a warning for anyone willing to cut corners when it comes to securing their valuable business data.
There is a safe and reliable solution for businesses that want to make use of cloud storage backups. WinWeb have been operating since 1994 and have allowed small businesses to backup their files online for over a decade.
