Mark Van Heusen, February 2014.

Mark Van Heusen has been working in the IT Security field for over 21 years. He has worked for various Fortune 500 companies across the United States, Canada and Europe. He now runs this website and contributes on various other IT and Software magazines throughout the web.

Mark started this website to help the general public understand the importance of backing up their data. He has seen many people lose an entire life worth of data (e.g. pictures, documents, music and other important files) due to a hard drive crash, virus, hacking attempt or any other similar threats.

The goal of this website is to educate the community and recommend solutions. There are hundreds of backup solutions out there, our job is to simplify the decision making process for our visitors by recommending only the top services.

Since there is no such thing as a 1 fits all solution, we have created different categories to better serve your needs.
