There is a very serious trust issue with remote backups that store data with company you don’t know. Even some of the very best companies get hacked and you need to make 110% sure that the company you use for remote backups is secure.
On the other hand, you can use offsite backup software to send files from your server to your home computer or a trusted network and not worry about the security of any company (except your own).
One such software package is called R5backup which takes an image of your system and can store that image on another computer or network. This remote backup is a command line utility that runs on freeBSD, linux, openBSD and more.
