When the cloud isn’t perfect
If you’ve ever deleted the wrong email list or account information, you know how important a back-up is. Data storage in the cloud is a great way to ensure information will be available when your own network goes down.
However, the cloud can fail, so it’s recommended that you keep your data in two different places. Recently released, Revert is a website that backs up your data in the cloud.
How to Use Revert
Using Revert is very simple. Sign up for the service on their website. Then, click on the “add an app” option at the top of the page. That brings up a list of apps. Click on the app you want to add, then sign into your account for that app. Revert goes to work to back up your data. The time it takes will depend on the amount of data in your files. When it’s finished you can easily track your folders and information that was saved to Revert.
What Makes Revert Special?
With Revert, you have a search capability to easily find your data. This is probably the most useful feature of Revert. The free version offers a 30-day search feature, but when you go Pro, it extends that to a year. The Pro version is $9.99 per month, with a discount for paying annually. Your data is secure under AES-256 bit encryption and TLS.
There is also a two-factor authentication that you can turn on for additional security. Revert sends you an email of your backup activity, with options for which emails you wish to receive and how often.
Downsides of Revert
Currently, Revert is only available for certain applications. Although Google Drive is coming soon and their website says that they are adding more every day, it’s not going to back-up your entire system, just the apps it supports. Revert is free for Evernote, Tumblr, and MailChimp, but you do have to pay for the service for other applications, like DropBox or Pipeline Deals.
Is Revert For You?
Although the cloud is pretty trustworthy to store data, Revert offers another layer of protection to give you peace of mind for your business information. It’s free and easy to use. If your business relies on the apps that integrate with Revert, it will be a great tool ensure that you can always find important data no matter what happens to your own system.
