Got Backup? Finding Best Backup Option for Small Business Data

How are you backing up your small business data? If you are like most small businesses, you could be compromising your business and its data on a daily basis.

A 2011 survey by Carbonite, a provider of online backup solutions, found some facts about data loss that may surprise you:

Forty-eight percent of American small businesses with between two and twenty employees have experienced data loss, up from 42 percent in 2010.
Top causes of data loss include hardware/software failure (54 percent), accidental deletion (54 percent), viruses (33 percent) and theft (10 percent).
Thirty-one percent of business owners surveyed think backing up company data is a hassle.
