Sponsored: 3 reasons why you should use IDrive for your cloud backup

Whether you are a business owner with years of client records or an individual with a work portfolio that keeps you employed, chances are, you have more to protect than you know. Backing up your files is always important, check out our 9 common ways you could lose all your saved data.

Obvious problems with most back-ups exist with the real possibility that they can be compromised in so many ways, or leave your precious data inaccessible when you need it. With all the major data breaches and natural disasters in the news lately, you may be searching for an alternative means to store all of your valuable information. Not just on your computer, but there can often be precious photos or files on a phone or tablet that you don’t want to lose. Here are three reasons why our sponsor IDrive is the perfect tool for your backup needs.

1. Multiple device convenience 

One of our favorite things about IDrive is that it backs up information across multiple platforms. Have some photos on your phone? No problem. Files on your tablet, easy. Back up everything along with your computer, and have easy access whenever you’re in need. What about those cute baby photos you have saved on your computer? You probably want to show them to your friends. Use the IDrive App to access backed up data that was saved from your computer and download the photos onto your phone right away.

2. Impassable encryption

This advanced cloud backup service includes encryption that uses a “bullet-proof” 256-bit AES encryption to protect your information. Each of your files is independently scrambled before it is uploaded to the cloud, and the encryption lock is only decoded when you access the item. In layman’s terms, this means your file backups will be unreadable unless someone enters your encryption key or password. The data cannot be physically destroyed, nor can hackers ever hope to retrieve it. This is the power of the cloud-based encryption IDrive uses to protect your information.

3. Positive user experience

IDrive is the future of information backup. But you don’t have to take it from us, listen to some of this feedback from these happy IDrive users.

If you were an old Crashplan customer like Thorsten you may take solace in the words of experienced backup user, Tim from the U.K.

“Just to say that, having migrated from CrashPlan, the first few weeks of using IDrive have been an excellent experience. Backups have occurred without me noticing, very automatic and instantaneous.What I PARTICULARLY like is the versioning of files and the simplicity of accessing versions through the desktop or web applications. This is much better than CrashPlan and any other online back up software Ive [sic] tried in the past. Versioning is extremely important to me and IDrive fully meets my needs.Thank you.”
