Taking advantage of Volume Shadow Copy technology, regular backups are taken of the device in real-time with no loss of service. The backups can be of individual folders or files or the entire device. These backup files are then written to an external USB hard drive or a dedicated backup appliance and replicated to our secure UK based cloud backup data centre providing for full Disaster Recovery. All backup files are encrypted both locally and in the cloud using AES 256-bit encryption and the replication transfers are protected by TLS1.2 over a secure connection.
Each backup only copies changes since the last backup was taken, so are extremely fast and small in size. The interval between backups can be as low as 15 minutes.
Backup files are kept for a rolling 28 days with the final backup of the month archived and retained for a further 12 months.
