How Does Online Data Backup Work?

How Does Online Data Backup Work?

The Online Data backup process works by firstly downloading a piece of software on to a PC, Server or Mac , which has the ability to encrypt and compress any data that is selected for backup. The software launches at a selected time and transfers the data to a secure server housed within a data centre. If for whatever reason data is lost at a later stage the software has the ability to retrieve it to its original format.

The frequency and timing of these transfers is completely adjustable and the files and folders to be included in these backups are designated by the client. Daily backups overnight are often chosen, as not to disturb normal office operation.

Our servers are housed in state-of-the art data centers with 24-hour security. The contents of these servers is also mirrored to an additional location, to provide an added level of safety.

If data recovery should ever be necessary, DataSure will assist you in restoring your lost or corrupted data.

Military-grade Security Encryption

Encryption is a process of scrambling & encoding information so that it cannot be read by others unless they have the key needed to decode it. Encryption takes place on the client side and before any files are transferred. The password is retained by the client ensuring that they alone are capable of decryption.

Ransomware Protection

Ransomware is a type of malicious software designed to stop access to a computer system until a requested sum of money is paid. Even then, many people are never provided with the method of decryption... DataSure backups are safely stored off-site, so that even if your computer should fall victim to ransomware, you may quickly and easily restore your data without paying a fee.

What is Encryption?

Encryption is a process of scrambling & encoding information so that it cannot be read by others unless they have the key needed to decode it.

How Does it Work?

Encryption works by scrambling the original message with a very large digital number (key). This is done using advanced mathematic algorithms. Commercial-level encryption uses 128 bit key that is impossible to crack.
Blowfish Encryption

Blowfish Encryption is the type used by Datasure software. It is a keyed, symmetric block cipher, designed in 1993 by Bruce Schneier and included in a large number of cipher suites and encryption products. Blowfish provides a good encryption rate in software and no effective cryptanalysis of it has been found to date.

DataSure Encryption

The encryption process is performed before any data leaves your computer and it remains so until it is restored to your machine using your exclusive key.

What is Ransomware?

Ransomware is a specific malicious software that encrypts files and renders them inaccessible until the user pays a ransom to, theoretically, decrypt the files. A ransomware infection can be devastating to businesses as well as individuals who rely on their data.

Ransomware infections can enter a system through a variety of ways, including: infected attachments, embedded links in phishing emails and by taking advantage of vulnerabilities in existing networks.

By protecting your backup through DataSure, your data will be safeguarded and protected from ransomware attacks. Even if your files are encrypted, your backups may be safely restored to your system without any ransom payment.
