The old tapes were replaced by EG Remote Backup
When Sika Footwear needed a new IT system, the company decided to automate the backup of its business-critical data.
"Sometimes, an employee forgot to change the tape or take a tape home. Such a system obviously leaves room for errors, so we decided to let EG handle our backup," says Allan Bøgh Madsen, IT manager at Sika Footwear.
EG Remote Backup provides backup routines for Sika Footwear and automatically transfers the company's data to EG's data centre on a daily basis. Sika Footwear backs up 150 GB data every day. EG encrypts the data, which are transferred via the internet.
