Work has changed. The pandemic has plunged nearly everyone into a worldwide experiment on remote working.

The cloud and ever faster internet connections have changed the way we work. Today, up to 50 percent of the UK’s workforce are clacking away on their keyboards at home, in cafes, co-working spaces, or anywhere with WiFi.

Data loss is a serious risk that businesses face. A whopping 70 percent of employees and business owners experience some form of data loss every year.
The effects can be devastating. More than half of businesses who suffer catastrophic data loss go under in 6 months or less. Yet even with the ever-present, potentially fatal threat, the majority of businesses are poorly prepared.
