As small business owners often oversee multiple areas of their company, online backup software automatically saves important business files to the cloud as they are created or updated without requiring time away from other tasks.

This remote file access means that presentations and spreadsheets are at your fingertips whether you are sitting at your work desktop or meeting a colleague at a restaurant downtown.
