Synology, like having secure remote working

Synology, like having secure remote working


A year ago, most companies were forced to implement remote working to stay in business. The rapid adoption of the new working format by companies, employees and customers has enabled them to address the crisis more effectively.

However, it has also shown that there is still a long way to go to make remote working a viable and viable option for all organizations, even in terms of security.

Synology has examined some of the risks that continue to threaten companies after a year of remote work, as well as new ones dangers and threats that have arisen due to the spread of these work practices.

One of the priorities for all companies when adopting remote work is to provide employees with access to company files and resources. Companies that were already using cloud solutions had an immediate advantage, as employees only needed a computer and password to access the servers.

However, the storage solutions offered by public clouds may not be suitable for all companies. Security protocols are often pre-set, storage capacity is limited at the agreed rate, and disaster protection is weak.

Having your own storage service through a secure NAS avoids these risks. It allows you to establish appropriate security policies for the different data packages stored by the company, to control access in a personal way, to easily expand the capacity and to automatically create external backups.

Awareness of the importance of creating backups is growing, but there are still too many companies and professionals who ignore their importance. It is not enough to protect files in a timely manner throughout the year with quarterly or annual copies. Protecting your servers on an ongoing basis will avoid problems in case of unexpected events such as cyber attacks or technical incidents.

When it comes to backup, Synology recommends a 3 - 2 - 1 strategy, which is based on creating 3 copies backup on 2 different media, one of which is located in an external physical space. The two main copies can be made in the corporate storage, while the external copy can be uploaded to the cloud for greater security.

The recommendation is to automate backups to keep them always up-to-date and, at the same time, save time management for IT administrators. Through its solutions, Synology promises businesses to apply the 3 - 2 - 1 strategy easily and accelerate copy creation automatically.

Having business documents and data available is essential for keeping active business, but it is also essential to avoid leaks. Working remotely involves the use of less secure networks, both those that employees themselves have at home, and those they can access if they are elsewhere.

To protect access to servers a private VPN connection that connects workers to the files they need to access is critical. While many companies have become aware of the importance of securing access and connections to their servers, more knowledge is still needed to prevent cyberattacks.

Businesses that spend less than 3% of their cybersecurity budget are set to suffer at least two major attacks in just one year. This is the conclusion that the experts of the consulting firm Deloitte have come to.

Having devices and servers updated in terms of new threats that emerge periodically is essential to maintaining the security of corporate files. Synology ensures the security of all its products by offering ongoing technical support and assistance, as well as partnering with cybersecurity and hacking experts to identify threats to its equipment.

Synology’s cloud backup system is the cheapest on the market

If you’re having a hard time getting more local storage for your smartphone or home computer backups, you might want to consider embracing the cloud. Amazon, Apple, Google, and Microsoft are all ready to offer you plenty of cloud storage and backup options, and they all offer options that won’t break the bank. But before you commit to any of them, you might want to take a look at Synology’s new cloud backup offer that targets both home and enterprise customers.

Synology is a Taiwanese company started by two former Microsoft execs, and it’s known for its NAS devices. But the company just announced a cloud storage and backup solution that’s cheaper than anyone else’s.

At just €9.99 per year for 100GB of storage, Synology’s new C2 Backup offer is incredibly affordable. Prices go up to €24.99 per year for 300GB of storage, and €59.99 per year for 1TB. If you need more than that, you’ll have to pay €69.99 per year per terabyte. Presumably, these prices will convert to $9.99 to $69.99 for the US market — currently, the pricing structure is listed in Euro only.

Synology offers daily or hourly backups depending on the plan you select, up to 11 backup versions for the past 30 days, and the ability to restore from a web browser. There is one catch to Synology’s C2 Backup offer though, and it’s that you need to own a Synology NAS product to get started. But the C2 Backup cloud might come in handy if something bad were to happen to your home or office NAS units. Of note, a solid Synology NAS can be found on Amazon for as little as $170.

Amazon Drive, meanwhile, charges $11.99 for 100GB of storage and $59.99 for 1TB. Apple’s iCloud costs $12 per year but you only get 50GB of storage, while 2TB of data will set you back $120. Google Drive is priced similarly, at $24 per year for 100GB of storage and $120 for 1TB. Finally, 
Microsoft charges $24 per year for 50GB of storage, but the 1TB offer priced at $69.99 also includes an Office 365 Personal license.
