Our Backup Services
Our Remote Data Storage service was designed to benefit customers in several ways.
First, as a secure method of getting a copy of your important business data, such as accounting files, documents, spreadsheet files, etc. in another location. This will allow you to recover this information in case of disaster such as a computer failure, office theft, or fire.
Second, as an information management tool allowing you, your associates, or clients to access this information from anywhere in the world using FTP software.
FTP stands for File Transfer Protocol. FTP client software allows you to transfer files between your hard drive and a remote server. For instance, you could put your personal home page up on the Web by transferring files from your hard drive to a Web server, or you can download programs from your favorite shareware site — fast. FTP users find transferring files via e-mail attachments grossly inefficient or impractical when dealing with large documents. For uploading such files, FTP is the only open standard answer (e.g., for efficiently posting new HTML pages onto a Web site or sharing graphics-laden files).
Short for Secure Sockets Layer, a protocol developed by Netscape for transmitting private documents via the Internet. SSL works by using a public key to encrypt data that's transferred over the SSL connection. Both Netscape Navigator and Internet Explorer support SSL, and many Web sites use the protocol to obtain confidential user information, such as credit card numbers. By convention, URLs that require an SSL connection start with https: instead of http:.
Another protocol for transmitting data securely over the World Wide Web is Secure HTTP (S-HTTP). Whereas SSL creates a secure connection between a client and a server, over which any amount of data can be sent securely, S-HTTP is designed to transmit individual messages securely. SSL and S-HTTP, therefore, can be seen as complementary rather than competing technologies. Both protocols have been approved by the Internet Engineering Task Force (IETF) as a standard.
Access is secure as you will be required to provide a valid username and password, and your data will always be encrypted using the same industry standard SSL process as banks and financial institutions.
How does it work?
File Transfer or Remote Backup software is installed on a key system at your location. This could be a server or a workstation that has a fast internet connection such as DSL or cable. Your important information is defined in a "set" of folders and files identified for backup. This set is then saved and scheduled to be encrypted and transferred over the internet to your private storage area on a regular basis. Additionally, any time you want, you can pick and choose any files or folders you wish and move them to or from your remote data storage account.
Your private storage area is actually located on a secure server at our facility. Your private storage area is only accessible using the logon information provided. We keep these servers running well and available 24 hours a day and 365 days a year.
On a regular basis, we test access to your account and monitor backup activity. You will receive periodical reports including the working status and backup activity of your account. Combined with one of our removable hard drive backup systems, your bases are covered.
