On-line back-up: Back-up is so important to protect your data in the event of hardware failure or loss. Major events such as theft or destruction of your equipment can have devastating effects on your life or your business and protecting your data from loss can help to minimise the impact of such events.
Storing your data in the “Cloud” safeguards against most eventualities and has the additional benefit of making your data securely available from ANY Internet connected device. There are a number of providers including my PCBackup.com, justCloud.com, backupGenie and SOS On-Line Backup providing a variety of accounts to cater for the home user to the major corporate needs.
Hosted Exchange mail services: Most e-mail providers make use of POP or IMAP access but if you have your own registered domain name, keeping tabs on your e-mails when you are out and about can be a problem. With a Hosted Exchange account e-mail for your domain is hosted and secured remotely and access is available from any Internet connected device – including iPhones, Blackberrys, iPads etc. etc. Simply Mail Solutions offer a range of accounts to suit all of your needs.
