LA VISTA, Neb. – Oct. 25 (SEND2PRESS NEWSWIRE) — Is your computer protected? Property loss threatens everyone. Recent California wildfires have damaged and destroyed thousands of homes and businesses; Hurricanes Katrina and Rita destroyed more than 275,000 homes. That’s why eDataShield has designed a computer backup system that is secure and easy-to-use.

The current fires in California have prompted eDataShield to stress the overwhelming importance for a disaster recovery plan that includes computer backups.

eDataShield is also taking a proactive approach in the recovery process. In an effort to assist victims, the company will donate 10 percent of all new sign-up fees to the American Red Cross National Disaster Relief Fund.

“Data backup starts with a single click,” Steven DeFalco, president of eDataShield, said. “One of the key reasons that people do not make regular backups of their computer files is that they don’t have time. We’re excited to deliver eDataShield Online Backup to make it easy for people to automatically store files such as images and important personal or business information.”

Protecting e-mail contacts, MS Word documents, financial information, Web bookmarks and images, before disaster strikes, is essential because it will probably be too late after the fact.
