Hello, I am in the process of trying to setup some sort of backup solution for about 30 to 40 laptops users that work in the field.  We have a server here in the office I was thought about setting up a vpn connection and having them use the windows utility file history to folders on the server but my only road block in that solution is that a lot of the employees work inside other companies network, a few years back I ran into trouble with them using outlook inside of the other companies network so I had to move them to webmail, so this time I wanted to use a solution that would work in any environment…… so I thought to use cloud base backup but I have never set one of these up and wanted a little direction and recommendations, we use go daddy for website and email so I considered using their online storage package that will allow me to setup folders for each user and have backup to that, or a service like my mozy or something like it …. Any direction or suggestions??

In the past, I have setup a cloud-based solution for companies with multiple employees, all roaming around.

www.egnyte.com

The nice thing about Egnyte is that it has a local sync option, so even if the user is not connected to the Internet, they can still work. Then, when there is an Internet connection, the files they are working on will sync back up to the cloud. I have gotten good feedback for the users I have setup on this.

There are other solutions that would also fit the bill for you. I would consider some Drop-Box type solutions, that are a bit more secure. Basically, you instruct them to save their files to the synched folder, and they automatically get synched via HTTPS from there. Some solutions could include Google Drive (not much more secure, though), Anchor (which is designed for MSPs),
Citrix ShareFile also has a solution that might work for you.
