Backing up computer hard drives may be something people either procrastinate, don’t do at all or don’t think about until their computers crash, get infected by a virus, or even get stolen. Many people take it for granted that their information—files, documents, emails, financial records—will always be there, right up to the moment they are lost. TekTegrity Inc., a local company started by Russ Levanway and Jeremy Koellish, has responded to this problem by creating Priority Backup, an innovative new solution for data protection.
Data loss is a serious and costly problem that strikes businesses everyday. According to a report on the economic costs of data loss by David M. Smith, Ph.D, over 6% of PC’s will suffer severe data loss in any given year - a total of 4.6 million incidents in the U.S alone. “Data loss costs businesses billions of dollars worldwide each year, both in lost productivity and computer (data) recovery.’ ‘Protecting your data is critical. In today’s world it could mean the difference between the life and death of a company,” said Koellish.
TekTegrity has implemented a convenient data back-up systems using revolutionary technology that allows for secure and reliable backups, along with the ability to have all backups be automatically replicated off-site to a secure datacenter. Even people who travel frequently with laptops can take advantage of this service and ensure copies of their critical data are stored at another location to insure against theft.
TekTegrity can custom-tailor back-up solutions for companies of all sizes. Priority Backup has the capability to store multiple backups of data so important files can be recovered if portions of them are accidentally deleted. “Whether they come to us, or go somewhere else, it is vital that all businesses have a backup system in place,” said Levanway.
In today’s high-tech information world, one of the most important aspects of running a successful business is secure data. As David M. Smith, Ph. D points out, “What is more valuable? Your computer…or the data on it?”
