Efficient, reliable data protection, no matter where your data is stored

We found that Backup as a Service was the most secure solution for us, and that using a service gave us greater flexibility than traditional backup. The strain on our IT operations is relieved by a supplier that we can rely on.”

Our backup solutions

Backing up business data has always been important. But increased complexity, regulation and security threats mean that it’s now more challenging than ever before. We can help by managing the backup solution you already have in place, designing and managing a new backup service for you, or simply helping you choose the backup infrastructure that’s right for you. 

Why Proact?

We’ve been delivering backup solutions and managed backup services for over 25 years – and have a wealth of experience in data protection. We offer a range of ways to meet your backup challenges, from dedicated backup environments to a fully-managed Backup as a Service. And because we’re independent, we can help you choose what’s right for you from a wide variety of world-class technologies and services. Don’t forget, backup rarely delivers the RTO and RPO required to recover your business after site failure. See our Disaster recovery page to find out how we can help.
