Dropbox/Google Drive vs Online Data Backup

What’s the difference between Dropbox/Google Drive and an Online Data Backup?


A client asked us the question
How does your Online Backup Solution compare to Dropbox and Google drive?

Our Answer
Well Dropbox/Google drive is a different solution really, it not acting as a backup, Google drive/Dropbox are for storing information that you can share across multiple machines, plus when your data is uploaded to their server it isn’t encrypted e.g. if your account was hacked they could easily copy and paste all your company data to their PC.

With any online backup solution all data is encrypted when it leaves your internet connection, the only way anyone can restore your company data is if they had your security key (only the supplier and client know this)
