ATLANTA (PRWEB) April 30, 2018
CodeGuard, a global leader in website maintenance, backup and disaster recovery, announced today that it successfully processed 42.5 million small business website and database backups in Q1 of 2018. Delivering 99.999% backup reliability, CodeGuard helps small businesses avoid disaster with continuous monitoring, maintenance and remediation solutions.
Research shows that 60% of small businesses that lose their data will shut down within six months, which is why website and email backup reliability is critical to maintain and grow small businesses today. Since mistakes and human error cause 29% of data loss incidents, small business owners must also have an effective restoration model in place. CodeGuard offers a one-click restore feature to help users quickly and easily reinstate their sites and databases as needed.
“Whether incidents occur by an internal mistake or an outside attack, small businesses must get ahead of potential disasters and invest in a reliable backup and recovery solution to avoid the risk of costly downtime,” said David Moeller, CEO, CodeGuard. “With the momentum of National Small Business Week, I encourage business owners to take the time to evaluate their website and email cybersecurity plans. Organizations like the U.S. Small Business Association and SCORE are also producing virtual events to help educate small business owners about cyber threats and best practices, signaling the importance of online security for small businesses.”
Industry research indicates that 1 in 3 hackers target small and medium-sized businesses and these incidents can cost small businesses between $36,000 and $50,000 in recovery expenses, according to First Data. To help small businesses avoid issues and costs related to malicious attacks, CodeGuard’s patented MalwareGone™ feature monitors and automatically removes malware before issues arise.
"We now use CodeGuard as standard on all the sites we build and manage and I can’t tell you the relief! It’s saved us countless dramas and we consider it an essential part of our tool kit," says Piers Moore of Barefoot SEO.
