Encrypt Your Backups for an Added Layer of Protection

by | May 28, 2015 | Business Continuity

Why Encrypt Your Backups You Ask?

When it comes to data protection, you can’t be too safe.  Your data is one of the most valuable assets your business possesses, and protecting it means ensuring not only that it will be there when you need it, but that other people won’t be able to access it any more easily than they would be able to access your primary data hub.  When you encrypt your backups, you create an extra layer of protection that will help keep all of your data secure.

Check out a system like the Datto NAS system.  Datto provides snapshotting that will allow users to restore their data from any point.  Shared documents that were negatively impacted by one viewer?  Those documents can be restored, either from the cloud or from the local network.  Lost data?  It will be stored on the Datto system, which will permit you to pick up an image from any point in time and return it to your system.  It integrates smoothly and easily into your network, allowing you the freedom to back up your data as you work–and includes hard drive bays that will allow you to swap out your hard drives for easy scaling as your business grows.

Where does encryption come in?  Datto encrypts all hard drives during transport and during storage to provide full protection for every device.  Datto employees never have access to the data, so you can rest assured that your data is fully protected.

By encrypting your data, you make sure that no one has access to it unless you allow it.  It’s safe, protected, and locked down as tightly as if you had put it into a safe–and when your hard drives are stored by Datto, you can rest assured that they might as well be.  Datto even has a security system implemented that will ensure that no unauthorized individual will be able to gain access to their facility.
