And while investing in FTP backup software may seem like a logical solution, it can be difficult to choose which one is best for your business amongst the thousands of platforms all boasting the same benefits.
In this article, we will review the features and benefits of SolarWinds Backup from SolarWinds MSP (formerly LOGICnow) to help you make the right decision for your business!
A Review of SolarWinds MSP's FTP Backup Software From a Real Life User
Harvey McLendon of Longleaf Systems spoke about his experience with SolarWinds Backup:
We didn't really have a good, comprehensive cloud backup solution. We had a couple of different vendors that we could use for a couple of different things and some of them did some things well, some of them did other things better — there was always some limitation with the software. When I saw SolarWinds Backup from SolarWinds MSP,I was really impressed with how simple, clean, and easy-to-use it was.
With SolarWinds Backup, we feel like we have the best solution for our clients for:
- Local, remote, and offsite backup
- Virtual disaster recovery
- File and folder restore
- Database restore
- Application restore
With SolarWinds Backup, we feel like we have a solution that we can offer our clients that works on all of their devices, protects them in a comprehensive manner, and also makes it easy for us.
What to Look for in FTP Backup Software
When choosing FTP backup software for your own business, there are four key things to consider:
According to TechTarget, "The primary purpose of encryption is to protect the confidentiality of digital data stored on computer systems or transmitted via the Internet or other computer networks. Modern encryption algorithms play a vital role in the security assurance of IT systems and communications as they can provide not only confidentiality, but also authentication, integrity, and Non-repudiation."
SolarWinds MSP uses AES 128-bit, AES 256-bit, or 448-bit Blowfish encryption to ensure our customers' data is protected no matter what.
2. Virus scanning
Whether a business has a few employees or a few hundred employees, the risk of someone accidentally downloading malware or accessing a malicious website is high. Virus scanning and protection will prevent employees from accessing potentially threatening sites and will proactively safeguard all computers, devices, and hardware from being compromised.
SolarWinds MSP's managed antivirus provides reliable protection that can be configured to all customers' devices. Even better, our antivirus allows you to start, pause and resume scans from a single, web-based dashboard and requires no complex training or installs.
3. Remote access
For IT administrators, being able to remotely access their networks from anywhere at anytime is crucial to keep their customers' systems on track and minimize interruptions that can cost them significant time and money.
SolarWinds Backup uses FTP to allow a user to remotely backup from one computer to another.
4. Customer support
Even IT professionals sometimes require outside support to fix problems or answer questions. SolarWinds MSP's customer support team is eager to help you and can be contacted through phone or email for added convenience and flexibility to you.
