RFA eHarbor Backup/Restore Solution Securely Protects Hedge Funds' Valuable Data Before a Computer Crash

Share Article

The best protection against disaster is to prevent it from happening in the first place. RFA has developed the eHarbor file and e-mail data backup/restore solution for hedge funds. Lost data is a common contributor to downtime that can lead to business failure. Whether due to viruses, human error, power failures, malicious acts or corrupted disk drives, computer crashes are a regular occurrence, and are a significant and typically hidden cost in any business. A recent Gartner survey found that 109 million U.S. adults have received e-mail attacks by way of phishing in 2006 - up from 57 million in 2004. Financial losses from phishing attacks in 2006 cost more than $2.8 billion.
