Is online backup a legitimate option for a midsized business?

Small businesses are a direct hit. This type of service is a very strong offering for organizations like that. Medium-sized companies with fewer than 1,000 employees and a traditional backup solution in house, but with much of their workforce remote, can also see strong benefits.

So, it's been a pleasant surprise to see the technology adopted by a wide range of company sizes for various reasons, but when you look at the cause of why you're doing it, many of the root causes are very similar. It has to do with the complexity of managing backup and locations where there aren't necessarily backup administrators or people that are trained or skilled to do the basic day-to-day activities.

Even Fortune 100 companies may have some of the same root causes and some of the same backup pain points in their remote offices and field sites.
