Xero Backup

Protect your business critical Xero-based accounting data against human error and other disasters with Redstor and gain peace of mind that you have a copy outside of Xero.

Ignoring the need for a third-party backup is a major gamble. Xero’s own Services Agreement states: “You must maintain copies of all data inputted into the service. Xero expressly excludes liability for any loss of data no matter how caused.”

Why you need third-party backup

Xero will do an excellent job keeping your data safe, but it can’t help if the problem originated from within your organisation. For example:

  • A new employee has deleted data in error or imported transactions wrongly
  • A disgruntled employee has wreaked havoc, sabotaging files and deleting contacts
  • An app you were trialing has pushed unwanted data into your accounting records or drastically altered contact details, records about deals or company data
  • Evidence compliance

    Easy compliance

    A simple, monitorable and auditable process that speeds up Subject Access Requests.

  • centralised management

    Centralised management

    With Redstor providing you can simplify and automate your data management and assign consistent protection polices across your entire data estate with one central, easy-to-use system.

  • Avoid vendor lock in

    Rapid deployment

    With Redstor you can protect your data with just a few clicks, scale protection effortlessly and there’s no impact on local bandwidth and no capital expenditure.

  • Strong security

    Strong security

    Data is encrypted at source and remains encrypted at all times and you control the encryption key. There’s no circumventing Xero security and you can set role-based permissions.

  • Automated protection

    Backups run to an automated schedule so unlike when backing up Xero manually via CSV, there is no risk of outdated data or bad CSV file imports that often lead to irreversible data loss or hours of work clearing up an account.

The need to retain control

Organisations must have procedures in place to protect business critical data. There are financial penalties for falling foul of the Data Protection Act 2018, the UK’s implementation of the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR).

Article 32 of the GDPR clearly states that organisations must ‘restore the availability and access to personal data in a timely manner in the event of a physical or technical incident’.

Avoid dependency

Recovering quickly is difficult, if not impossible, when all your data is with one provider, who subsequently suffers an issue.

You can avoid that risk by backing up Xero data within your organisation directly from Xero to the Redstor cloud.

Peace of mind

Backing up Xero with Redstor is a tiny investment, but the reassurance that your financial data is both protected and controlled is huge.

If for any reason you want to cancel a subscription, you can download an offline backup of your full audit trail, including attachments to your source documents and reference data.

In the event you want to close off a client, you can get all their data out of Xero, including attachments. You can also be sure of emergency access to important reports if Xero is offline.
