We all know how important it is to back up our data. I basically live online and know how critical it is that I make a copy of my hard drive to ensure that I don’t lose my data. Just like I have an automatic back-up for my websites, it’s also important to have a back up for your computer, and MozyPro is a great way to do it.
The way it works is that you sign up for an account and download their software. Upon opening up the software, you check off the boxes next to the files you want to back up, and it backs up your data using 128-bit SSL encryption and protects it with 448-bit Blowfish encryption. I am not a technical person, but the company says that the encryption is the same that banks use to encrypt data, so I assume it’s safe.
One of the nice features of MozyPro is that you can set it to back up your data at specific times, and it will automatically back up your data for you. Mozy can be used by both Mac or PC users, which is nice for me because I have a Macbook. Additionally, if you want to transfer files to another computer, it’s easy to do with Mozy.
The price is also a good selling point – just $4.95 a month for unlimited data, and you can also get 2 GB totally free. I think this is a valuable service for anyone, but especially for people who have business ventures online and need to make sure their data is safe and secure.
