World Backup Day | Importance of Cloud Backup in the New Era

We live in an era where data breach happens very frequently. In India, a small data breach exposed the personal information and identity of millions of Indians. This data can be misused in many ways if it lands in the wrong hands.

This World Backup Day, we at GOFRUGAL are happy to share that we are building this awareness and helping our customers enjoy the benefits of data backup with GoSecure Cloud data backup and recovery solution.

The same way for our business, the business data we have are our assets. Some businesses are even dependent on their data. When the data gets deleted or affected by a virus, it’s either going to end your business or take days to re-setup your business. So, on this World Backup Day, ensure to backup your valuable business data.

What is World backup day?

March 31, 2019 is an initiative started to backup all their valuable data before anything could happen. One can lose their data in ‘N’ ways right from hardware failure to virus attacks. This day is considered as the most important day for the people to realise the importance of business data in our lives and how data loss can be avoided with regular backups.

Why backup your business data to cloud?

Imagine this scenario where a virus in your POS machine has destroyed all your data. This includes all your valuable information such as customer data, stock details, due bills, accounting and more. This definitely sounds like a nightmare for any business owner, right?

There will be lots of questions in your mind like “How can I get all the data back?”, ” What alternative do I have for billing?”, “How much do I owe him? How much does he owe me?” and lots more.

So, act now before anything could happen. Data loss can happen different ways like:

  • Hardware failure
  • Ransomware attack
  • Natural calamity
  • Theft
  • Power fluctuation

Hence, a proper backup system is a must for any business as it may get critical when data loss happens. Setting up your own backup might be expensive where hardware has to be purchased, such as, servers, hard-drives, computers and a person to keep an eye on the backup regularly. Managing this over your business might sound hectic if you are a newly started business.

Data loss could cost you both money and time where it would take manual work to re-enter all the business data during your business days. The best way to overcome this issue is by backing up your data to the cloud.

What is cloud backup and how is it different from local backup?


Cloud backup or online backup refers to backing up data to a remote server or a cloud based server. For example, storing your data in Google drive, Dropbox, mega, etc is  referred to as cloud backup.

Online backup is the easiest and safest method to backup your business data, which would not cost you much. In case of data loss scenarios, cloud backup comes in handy where there will be very little downtime for your business to download and setup your POS, when compared to manually entering the details which would take days.

Cloud backup is happening away from your billing computer. So, when anything happens to your local drive or local backup, cloud backup will help to recover the data from the cloud, thereby assuring you the peace of mind.
