As small companies move from paper-based processes to digital applications, they become more vulnerable to the huge costs and disruptions that can result from losing vital business information. Small businesses are also challenged to comply with growing regulatory requirements governing the storage of customer information. They need strong data security, advanced encryption capabilities, and tools to control the way users access sensitive data. The common data storage solutions used in many small businesses - backup disks and flash drives, primitive tape backup systems, and simple hard drives directly attached to employee PCs -- cannot provide the advanced security and control features that today's small businesses require. Such ad hoc storage solutions can also diminish productivity by impeding employees' ability to easily transfer and share files.
