Despite their name, micro and small enterprises are, in fact, big business. According to CGAP, they represent 90 percent of all businesses and 66 percent of all jobs worldwide, and 50 percent of the world’s GDP. Those huge numbers also make small businesses a ripe target for malicious attacks. A recent survey of 5,000 IT managers showed 51 percent of respondents’ organizations were hit by ransomware last year, with the criminals succeeding in encrypting data in 73 percent of the attacks.
That means every small business has about a 50/50 chance of being attacked. And the cost of a successful attack is high. Cybersecurity Ventures predicts that global ransomware damages will reach an astounding $20 billion by 2021. If at some point your company is successfully attacked, StorageCraft can help ensure you won’t pay any part of that $20 billion. That’s because StorageCraft OneXafe Solo—a data protection solution built for simpler environments like those typically found in small businesses—delivers direct-to-cloud data protection and fast recovery.
Here are a few good reasons your business should consider OneXafe Solo:
- Easy to deploy and manage
OneXafe Solo is up and running in a few simple steps. Just plug it in, connect to the internet, and start protecting your data in minutes.
- Next-generation data protection
You get the same SLA-driven management that drives StorageCraft ShadowXafe—our powerful, complete data protection solution—in a compact appliance. That means your data is always secure and ready to be recovered.
- Cloud-based DRaaS for total business continuity
Because OneXafe Solo is fully integrated with StorageCraft Cloud Services—our Disaster Recovery as a Service (DRaaS) solution—you can opt for orchestrated one-click failover in the cloud. That lets you recover your entire infrastructure with ease, ensuring total business continuity.
- Ultimate flexibility
OneXafe Solo offers a wide range of deployment options for environments with a limited infrastructure—as is likely to be found in most small businesses. Whether the issue is limited local storage or a lack of virtual environments, you can be sure your data is safe.
- Enterprise-class features at an affordable cost
With small businesses’ limited IT budgets, cost will always be a consideration. That’s where OneXafe Solo shines. OneXafe Solo is both affordable and powerful, delivering easy-to-use recovery capabilities that let you quickly boot backup images as virtual machines (VMs) using StorageCraft’s patented VirtualBoot technology, and recover files and folders in seconds and entire systems in minutes. That keeps the costs of downtime to a minimum. And data protection is both host-based and agent-based, complete with physical and virtual system recovery.
- Set it and forget it
OneXafe Solo features SLA-based policy management, so you can set up and manage your data protection without dedicated staffing or added physical resources. That makes it a perfect fit for small businesses where IT time is at a premium.
