New Way of Protecting your data

Benson & Associates is working with One World Data Recovery to offer a new service - OneWorld SafeDisk. 

OneWorld SafeDisk™ is a premium service plan that provides data recovery protection services for all types of storage media, allowing customers to proactively guard against high cost data-recovery services.

With the rising cost of off-site data recovery services and the frequency of drive failure, Benson & Associates is proud to be the first data recovery service provider that offers a means for the home and business users to ensure that in the event of a hard disk failure, an attempt at recovery can be made with the benefit of full off-site facilities at a reasonable cost.

Safe Disk Standard

Safe Disk Standard is designed for any new hard drive or related products.  The Standard plan can cover anything from external hard drive, flash/solid state memory or even camera memory cards. 

The plan comes from one to three year packages and offers cost effective, short and long term data protection.  This will cover you primarily against the risk of data loss due to failure caused by unforeseen damage, excessive use, and general wear & tear.

Safe Disk Extended

Safe Disk Extended offers the same great protection extending the protection to any refurbished computer systems and other storage devices that are currently being used. 

Causes of Data Loss

There are a number of reasons for data loss; however, the most common is drive failure.  Drive failure can be the outcome of a power failure, data corruption or internal failure causing mechanical breakdown.

Other causes to data loss include:

       - Malicious acts such as worms and viruses.
- Disasters such as fires and floods.
Unintentional actions such as accidental deletion of a file or program.

The cost of data loss is on the rise and is something that everyone should think about, according to a survey from the Diffusion group:

60% of companies that lose their data, close down within 6 months of the disaster”

Every drive will eventually fail and being prepared with proper back ups is not always the solution.

If you would like anymore information about the OneWorld Safedisk program, or how to protect yourself against data loss please contact Benson & Associates helpdesk at 1-877-247-1664
