What is a private cloud backup service?
- Our system is not open to the public. We connect our client’s computers to our system backing-up their data off-site.
- Mr-Backup technicians install and maintain the system, not you or your secretary. While the backups are 100% automated, we have live technicians manually confirm that your backup is taking place as programmed. Is it fair to put the responsibility such a mission critical function on the shoulders of your secretary?
We go beyond other services, like Carbonite**, that use a SSL* connection. We use a VPN* connection with pre-shared keys.
We create a unique key pair and install it on your computer and our server, so there is no question your data is going to the right place. This protects against an impersonator or man-in-the-middle attack.
We place your data into a 256 bit encrypted container file (unlike Carbonite’s 128 bit encryption) for transport though the VPN tunnel and storage on our secure servers.
is NOT what you want to do with a backup system. Mr-Backup is 100% automated but with an IT professional that regularly checks that your backup is taking place as scheduled.
If a problem arises, we contact you to identify and correct the issue.
You get email reports after each backup to keep you in the loop.
Computer infections (ransomware) that encrypt your data, then expect that you pay them for the key to un-encrypt your data, is the new reality.
Backup services that continuously sync your data, like Carbonite, and local storage devices like USB drives are highly vulnerable to this type of attack.
The Mr-Backup VPN disconnects as soon as each backup job completes and we hold two weeks (4 versions) of your data on our servers so you are protected from ransomware extortion, as well as the usual threats like computer or server hardware failure and office fire/theft.
