Online Backup For Schools


Tired of tape or manual backup?

Worry about how safe & secure your backup is?

Is it safe & encrypted when it’s taken off-site?

Schools are increasingly relying on computer systems and digital content to teach their pupils the core subjects of the curriculum. Administration data on each pupil and how the school functions is critical, highly sensitive and needs to be protected in a sufficient manner.

Without all this information backed up and protected the consequences of data loss can be massively time consuming, disruptive and potentially embarrassing as unwanted headlines are just a disaster away which would result in a damaged and hard to repair reputation.

Your data is sent securely and encrypted across the internet, so you can have peace of mind that your important information is safe in the event of a disaster.

With the Remote Backup Service for Schools you can rest assured that you are meeting your statutory obligations and will be able to restore your data at the click of a button when you need to.
