Most companies use backup solutions but still lose data - Kroll Ontrack

Company surveyed 600 customers and found that most use external hard disk drives for backup

A survey to Kroll Ontrack's Ontrack Data Recovery customers found that 60 percent of them had a backup solution in place at a time when they suffered data loss, because the backup was either not current or not operating properly.

The survey results also show that external hard drive backup is still the most used and sought after approach to backing up both business and personal data. A total of 60 percent of respondents utilise an external drive solution, while 15 percent opted for the cloud and another 15 percent backup up to tape.

“Leveraging a data backup solution is critical for any business or individual protecting against data loss,” says Adrian Briscoe, general manager APAC, Kroll Ontrack.  “However, as our recent global survey results demonstrate, even a reputable cloud or external media solution does not always provide predictable results. An effective backup solution hinges on the user or IT administrator attentively validating that the solution is functioning as expected and verifying that the backup is complete.” 

The company survey 600 recent Ontrack Data Recovery customers from North America (27 percent), Europe (58 percent) and Asia Pacific (15 percent), with one third of respondents experiencing personal data loss, and two thirds having lost business data. After experiencing data loss, 87 percent of respondents indicated they are extremely likely or somewhat likely to seek a backup solution.
