Backup Monitoring: Double the protection to ensure the safety of your data
There's nothing worse than feeling safe and sound - and then realizing the backup you performed of some really important data didn't actually take place. Data is taking on an increasingly important role, whether it be as part of business intelligence or sensitive customer data, or to meet compliance requirements. Data serves as documentation for operations, the basis for business processes, and the personalization of customer communication.
Data losses have significant consequences and can lead to large-scale interruptions of your business operations. Work must sometimes be redone, which can subsequently prevent deadlines from being met. The trust of customers and business partners is likewise on the line. Costs associated with data loss are difficult to plan for.
By using backup software and its central safeguarding via backup monitoring, you'll minimize these risks. Separate backup software exists for a variety of different applications and data, and all of this software must be monitored at the same time. This software is used for everything from traditional tape backups to cloud and online backups, and from operating system backups to backups of virtual machines (VMware, Hyper-V, and other vendors).
With PRTG, you can monitor an unlimited amount of backup software, and apply specific filter options to scan its incoming notifications. In the event a backup fails, you'll be notified automatically.
Thanks to PRTG, the entire staff can work with peace of mind.

How PRTG works as backup monitor
Most backup software sends you its statuses by email. But controlling this software manually is not always a walk in the park. PRTG uses an IMAP sensor to automatically scan for the successful implementation of backups and sends you an alert whenever backup software returns an error message. You are free to receive this alert by email, SMS, or push notification to your mobile device.
