Verio Adds Entry-Level Data Backup Plan for SMBs
The company's new storage offering targets business looking to protect 1GB of data or less.Verio, a leading provider of hosting and managed services for small and midsize businesses and partners, on Jan. 18 introduced to its line of PC Data Backup offerings a new entry-level plan for smaller companies looking to protect 1GB or less of data. A survey conducted by Verio last year of small businesses and home office users found that 45 percent of them do not have a data recovery plan in place, leaving their businesses susceptible to the high costs associated with data recovery. Additionally, 70 percent of respondents said a single incidence of data loss would be significant and costly for their businesses.
The new 1 GB plan from Verio is ideal for small businesses that need to back up simple spreadsheets, word processing or other financial documents, company officials said. Verio also offers PC Data Backup plans for businesses that need to secure higher volumes of data or larger files such as media or graphics. Plans range up to 30GB of storage.
