Independent Professional - Agent

Independent Professionals and Agents value their business data as much as any other organization.  Yet, often being smaller operations, they do not have the time, resources nor energy to devote to something as mundane as backing up data.

Like many business, time is money and doing a tape / disk / CD backup can adds up to days of wasted time.  But this is nothing compared to the wasted time incurred if data is ever lost.  This can be individual proposals, project reports or entire contact databases.

Compliance is a key issue for many working in the financial services market and backing up electronically produced proposal data is a legal requirement to remain compliant.

Many independents work in a home-office environment where computers are less secure than in a traditional office environment - perhaps increasing the risk further that data will be lost.

So how can online backup provide a simpler, compliant and less risky working environment?

How vulnerable is your data?
Viruses, Hackers and Spyware
Not long ago, computer viruses, hackers and spyware were of interest only to businesses with sensitive data and to IT professionals. Now these items routinely make front page news. Any computer connected to the Internet is exposed to these dangers and the data loss that accompanies them.

Hard Drive and Hardware Failures
Hard drives store more data, are smaller and are cheaper than ever.  But all hard drives will eventually fail.  Hard drives are simply not designed to last forever. Of course, unfortunately, you can never predict when they will fail.
Natural Disasters and Theft
Most of us have insurance to protect our homes from disasters such as fires and floods, hurricanes and earthquakes.  But what's protecting your data?  Anything that can damage your home, can destroy your computer and the information that it stores.   And on top of natural disaster, we live in a world today where terrorism and theft must be considered. 
Human Error
Even if such disasters don't strike and we all hope they don't, we humans aren't perfect either. Most of us have at one point or another accidentally deleted a file or had a file overwritten.
