New York, NY (PRWEB) November 30, 2010 -- Backup My Info! (BUMI), the premier provider of managed online backup and recovery solutions for small to mid-sized businesses, today announced a service offering aimed at making it easy for customers to restore their data after a catastrophic system failure. BUMI offers "plug-and-play" storage devices loaded with clients' encrypted data that can be shipped overnight in order to accelerate the process of restoring. This service, available at no additional cost, can be utilized when an Internet connection is not available or the physical server or location is no longer available.

During a typical data restore, BUMI engineers guide clients through the process which includes retrieving the encrypted data from its data center in Canada through BUMI's software application. If a large amount of data needs to be immediately restored, BUMI can ship this data overnight in an encrypted and compressed format on a USB storage device which can then be restored rapidly at no charge to the client. Many competitors charge a very large fee for similar offerings. Once the data is shipped to the customer site, BUMI senior engineers remotely connect to assist with recovery procedures.

"During an emergency restore where systems are down and - in certain cases - technology infrastructure may be lost or damaged, the last thing you need to worry about is data loss and business continuity issues," explained Jennifer Walzer, CEO at Backup My Info!, Inc. "Our all-inclusive service, which consists of shipping a pre-loaded, encrypted storage device to the customer, is part of our mantra to deliver the best service and support - especially after a major system failure or outage."

"Data backup is essential for any organization - however, restorability provides a true barometer for success," explained David A. Chapa, Senior Analyst at Enterprise Strategy Group, Inc. "It is imperative organizations evaluate their providers ensuring they offer a complete and proven strategy for data restores - not just backup."

With data protection and reliability a prime concern for all organizations, BUMI has built several layers of security into its online backup solution. Data is encrypted before it leaves a customer site and remains encrypted at all times. Additionally, BUMI's senior engineers continuously monitor backup processes to ensure customer data is properly safeguarded and proactively follow up if they identify any errors or problems. From a disaster recovery and business continuity perspective, all off-site backups are stored in SAS70 Type II data centers located in Canada.
