In recognition of their service excellence, eSilo has been named 2022 Best of Florida winner in Guide to Florida’s annual readers’ poll.

Guide to Florida readers and editors have weighed in on the best of everything in Florida, honoring thousands of businesses and organizations in more than 25 broad business and community sectors, and eSilo was named winner in the Computer and IT Firms category.

eSilo, founded in 2002, is a data backup & cybersecurity company that equips small businesses with backup solutions and empowers them with the knowledge to defend and recover from cyberattacks.

When asked about the impact of this award, Cathy Miron, CEO of eSilo, said “at eSilo we do things differently, taking a holistic view of managing risk and protecting business data. I believe this more human-centric approach is one of the reasons why we were recognized as a winner and Best of Florida–something my team and I are very proud of.”

This award is evidence of the care and attention eSilo directs toward its customers and helps to reinforce why their client retention is at an all-time high of over 10 years. With cybercrime targeting businesses of all sizes at an alarming rate, there is a great need for eSilo’s work now more than ever, especially for small and midsize businesses that are targeted by 43% of cyberattacks.

Miron says “small businesses are often 10-15 years behind large enterprises when it comes to cybersecurity and data compliance.” This explains why only 14% of small businesses feel adequately prepared for a cyberattack.

As data protection specialists, eSilo team members help to protect small businesses and educate them on the importance of cybersecurity and offsite data backup. eSilo’s backup solutions have enabled their clients to achieve a 100% ransomware recovery rate since 2018. Overall, the quality of eSilo’s work and the expertise of their team are proven in their results.

In addition, customers and partners are consistently happy with eSilo, praising the company for its backup solutions and quick restoration. Jessie Cabera, co-founder of West Palm Beach managed IT service provider, A Rapid PC Inc. said, “one of our clients got hacked with ransomware on their server. eSilo was quick to respond and restore data and the client was up and running within a few hours.”

Cabrera went on to say, “we have always trusted eSilo for our clients and will continue to do business with them for many years to come.”  A Rapid PC has been a partner of eSilo’s for over 15 years.

“Our team is proud to be able to provide businesses with the protection they need to survive and thrive in any situation,” says Miron. As a ‘Best of Florida’ award winner, eSilo clients are in good hands.
