For those who are extremely nervous about entrusting their valuable mission-critical data to strangers over the Internet, Backup Technology Limited (BTL) Cloud Backup is a very reliable option! You can trust your data to BTL professionals without a qualm. BTL has years of experience and a proven track record in data security. The client testimonials and partner stories say it all. If you are still not convinced, here is how BTL works on data security for you.
Your data is secured against access in three ways:
- Data is encrypted once at the point of transmission and again at the point of storage. This double encryption makes unauthorised access difficult and even fruitless.
- BTL uses superior technology to ensure that your data is backed up quickly and efficiently, and optimally.
- Your data is made highly available by replication/mirroring for disaster recovery.
BTL protects data by deploying a 256 bit cryptographic, powered by Asigra, an industry leading cloud backup technology.
The 256 bit cryptographic feature is installed when the BTL software agent is installed on server or computer you want to backup. The installation process prompts the user to input several character strings. The string is then, converted into a 256 bit encryption key and is made available only to the user. It is never transmitted over the Internet and is not stored on the servers of the company. Users are expected to secure this key against deletion and access by unauthorised personnel. Since the data is stored in an encrypted format on the server, the availability of the key is an imperative. Loss of the key implies loss of access to data stored on the servers.
BTL software kick starts when you begin to transmit information over the Internet for secure, encrypted storage on BTL servers. The agent software installed on your computer communicates with the BTL server, using SSL (Secure Socket Layer) technology that deploys its own encryption protocol. This results in a double encryption of the data you finally store. This technology is similar to the technology that is used by banking companies to secure bank accounts of their customers.
BTL ensures that customer data is stored securely for high availability and disaster recovery. They monitor the data centres 24/7 with advanced bio-metrically controlled access. Backup generators and redundant Internet connections are used to ensure that customers are never locked out of the server storage if the encryption key, user name and password are available with them. Files in storage are constantly reviewed for ease of restoration, maintenance of user logs, and optimisation of versioning controls.
BTL’s technology backs up data, differentially or incrementally at the block level after the first full backup. Users can configure the software to apply to specific data sets as per company policy or on the basis of the importance of the data. This enables users to backup more files during an available backup window and optimise on storage space. Users can also set BTL Cloud Backup and Recovery solution to backup a number of versions of files for compliance and archiving regulations.
Whether you run a big corporation or a small business or you are an IT service providers, BTL offers a secure cloud based data backup solution, combined with a robust partner program, the efficiencies of full web-based account management, and an industry leading technical support team.
