Forget about the time-honored idea of running a backup system in the event you have to take down your house in a disaster.
Instead, a startup called “Backup System” is offering its home-keeping product to make that a little bit easier.
“We think that you need to have backup plans in case something happens to your home,” said Michael Tynan, cofounder and CEO of Backup System, at the Code Conference.
“And we think that that is a huge misconception.”
Tynan and his cofounder, Matt Brown, said that backup systems offer a backup plan in case a catastrophe like a power outage or a wildfire strikes, or if someone has lost their job or finances.
They said that, unlike traditional backup plans, Backup System’s plan will always work, even if your house is destroyed.
“If you are at home and your computer breaks down and you have no internet, your computer will still work,” Brown said.
“The only thing that is different about this plan is the backup plan is built into your computer.”
The company also said that Backup System can provide you with the ability to back up data to other devices, including your smartphone and other smart devices.
“In the event of a catastrophic power outage, it is important to back everything up,” Tynac said.
But, if you can’t keep up with your backup plans and it’s just too expensive to replace your equipment, you might consider buying a backup device to backup your data, Brown said.
“We want to make it easier for you to make sure you have a backup if that’s something that is really important to you, or you’re a financial advisor,” Tylan said.
When it comes to what kind of backups you can have on your home, Brown and Tynans suggested using a data backup service like BackupSync.
You can get a backup of your credit card data or your bank account, for example, and use it to back-up your home.
“A lot of people are concerned about security,” Brown explained.
“It’s really important that we don’t have a security breach on our network.
If you can take data that is stored on your system, you don’t need to worry about it.”
But there are drawbacks to this approach, including the fact that it’s not really secure.
“There is no way that if somebody was able to steal your password, or a bank account or your social security number, that you could tell them that,” Brown warned.
And while Backup System claims that it can protect against identity theft, the company says that’s only true if you’re using the service for your home or business.
“You’re not really storing your data,” Tymans said.
If someone stole your username or password, you would have to provide that information to a third party, such as a bank or credit card company.
The company plans to launch a trial version of the product in the coming weeks, and says it will offer a bigger version for more devices in the future.
For now, however, the home-sharing company is focusing on a more affordable product for smaller businesses and individuals who are worried about security.
