Can cloud storage really benefit your business?

Cloud storage allows you to place your important data in a secure, remote location which can then be accessed from any computer or phone with a web browser. This stops you from losing files through fire, theft or a computer malfunction and also allows you to easily share files between colleagues.

I have a small business, can I use SAS Space instead of a server?

Yes. The SAS Space Cloud works just like a shared network drive that your server would use. However, it is only a fraction of the cost. All of your data will be encrypted so only your credentials can access it.

Backing up business files

Consider this: 80% of businesses without a well-structured recovery plan are forced to shut within 12 months following a flood or fire. Yet less than 50% of all UK companies have a business continuity plan. Do you have a plan set in place for emergencies?

SAS Space provides a simple way to backup your files. Our Business accounts allow you to Backup all of your data on every computer in your office from as little as £29.95 per month. Plus we are currently offering a 10 day free trial with no commitment or payment required. This will allow you to test out our system before you buy.

Increase productivity

SAS Space Business products also offer several key ways to increase productivity in your work place. We have included some methods below;

Sharing files in-house – Each SAS Space Business account comes with 3 or more user accounts for your employees. This will allow colleagues to share files between each other in a quick and reliable way. Each user will have an L: drive which contains their own personal SAS Drive and Team Folders, any file placed in the Team folder will be accessible to all user accounts with read or write access to that Team Folder.

Sharing files externally – Do you have problems sending customers files through email? Most email services have a files size limit and take a considerable amount of time to send a file from one computer to another. SAS Space allows you to set up a “share folder” on your account. This can be used to transfer files to non- SAS Space users.  Simply send your customers or clients a link and they will be able to download your file with ease.

Work from anywhere – Placing your files in the cloud allows you to access them from anywhere. This gives you the ability to edit a PowerPoint before your presentation or access any of your key files during a meeting. Leaving important documents at home or in the office will never be an issue again.

Where is my data stored?

Your data is stored in separate data centres in the UK. Our network is protected by enterprise-grade firewalls ensuring that once your data is on our servers it cannot be lost and only the people you want to access your data can.

How secure is my data?

We use data encryption of the strongest level. Files stored on our servers are encrypted, using military grade, AES-256 encryption. Our data centres have strict access controls to verify staff to gain entry. In the very unlikely event that someone compromised our data storage and stole any data it would be meaningless. This storage encryption is done by our web service on receipt of the file, rather than by the Desktop Sync Software on your PC to allow you to be able to e.g. view files through the web portal, to download the unencrypted files directly from the web portal etc.

The encryption you can use between the Desktop software and our servers is a separate process – more similar to the SSL connection you use when sending data to and from your online bank.

User’s data can only be accessed by being logged in as the user, except where it is shared publicly when it is visible to everyone through the sharing portal.

We have strict processes in place to ensure that the team cannot access customer data stored. We can close an account if the customer violates copyright regulations by publicly sharing data that they do not own, but data stored privately is private and cannot be accessed by staff.

Why should I trust you with my data?

All of your data is just chunks of encrypted data spread across all of our data centres. It doesn’t even have a any file names, just strings of numbers that don’t mean anything.
