Secure backup for SMEs

1 April 2020 IT infrastructure

Cleeks Cloud, a Level 1 BEE entity has announced the launch of its online, direct-to-cloud backup solution aimed at the South African SME market.

Cleeks offers direct-to-cloud backup and disaster recovery as a service (BaaS/DRaaS) providing data protection with consumer-grade usability – without any hardware required on-premise. The solution is a scalable and flexible offering that delivers always-on continuity with optimal Recovery Time Objectives (RTOs) and Recovery Point Objectives (RPOs).

Cleeks Cloud is a female led and driven business that offers direct-to-cloud online backups as a subscription-based model. Cleeks provides pain-free setup and easy management.

Recognising the need for easy and secure online backups in every industry, Atisha Raghunanan, founder and director of Cleeks Cloud, collaborated with Arcserve Southern Africa – the sole sub-Saharan Africa representative of US global corporation, Arcserve.

“The alliance with Arcserve Southern Africa provides us with a global platform for Cleeks Cloud. Having worked in the accounting software and training industry for many years before launching Cleeks Cloud, I understand the importance of a safe backup solution coupled with strong anti-virus software and why it is a must in every business. Businesses fail to comprehend that losing vital business data can cripple operations in a matter of minutes,” Raghunanan says. “With so many advantages associated with cloud backup, it’s amazing that there are still companies relying on out-of-date, mediocre systems – or worse, no solution for data backup at all.”

Mid-size companies and decentralised enterprises typically face two unsatisfactory choices for data backup and recovery: implement a solution that delivers quick recovery times but results in hours or even days of data loss; or maintain system availability yet get crushed by high complexity and costs.

Cleeks Cloud offers a third option, allowing users to easily manage backup and disaster recovery and restore service-level agreements (SLAs) from one simple, web-based UI. Cleeks allows companies to protect any system and application from data loss and get back in business faster. Cleeks offers a 90-day retention policy. It uses popular encryption protocols such TLS and AES to encrypt the data and supports Windows, Linux, Mac and VMware Vsphere.
