Internet users continue to put their security at risk by using generic passwords such as “123456” and “password”, despite widespread advice to create more unique and secure codes.

Both “123456” and “password” have held the top two spots on SplashData’s annual list of leaked passwords since the first list in 2011 and data released by SplashData yesterday shows 2015 was no different.

Also known as Cloud Backup.

Data loss or the exposure of sensitive data can result in huge financial losses, legal penalties, loss of reputation, brand damage, loss of intellectual property, loss of customer trust… and all this can easily lead into bankruptcy.

 

Sterling IT specialises in secure online backup and recovery. Whether you are looking for online backup of servers, distributed networks, workstations or notebooks, Sterling IT has a suitable solution and reliable technology that will scale with your business.

Sterling IT provides real-time, hassle-free, local and offsite backup protection. It offers a reliable, centrally managed backup solution that unravels complexities and makes it easier for IT managers and business owners to protect their organization’s most important asset – their data.

Both small business and enterprise solutions Sterling IT offer both allow unlimited clients. That is you can run the backup client on 1 computer/server or 100’s of computers/servers (including laptops that are in the field all the time). That’s right, NO CLIENT FEE. You can start with 1 or 2 systems and just keep installing onto more computers or servers as required. All that is required is an internet connection.

In today’s information-driven organisations, the cost of managing, keeping available and recovering data can be overwhelming.

The ever-increasing role digital information plays in our lives has increased scrutiny over how it is stored and protected.

In order to ensure company’s good name, integrity and longevity, data must be stored securely and in multiple locations; this is no more just “nice to have”, it is a necessity.

Enterprises are seeking new ways to tackle their data protection challenges. While data growth is not new, the pace of growth has become more rapid, the location of data more dispersed and the value much higher.

Sterling IT offer plans starting from $9 per month based on storage requirements. Unlimited computers! All backed up to AUSTRALIAN DATA CENTRES.

SITBACK is the easy to use, automated and affordable way to backup your irreplaceable data. At your predetermined time, your data is encrypted, compressed and sent to our secure, offsite servers.

For a limited time, Sterling IT is offering our clients a free trial and installation.
