Data backup that’s off-site, secure and cost-effective.
The operation and survival of your business is dependent on computerized systems and the data stored on these systems. Imagine the impact should a failure render one critical file unreadable or worse, an entire server’s data.
Because of this, you have implemented backup procedures to safeguard your data. But studies show that 80% of organizations have inadequate backups and are not safe from data loss. Typically, these organizations do not realize they are at such great risk.
Some of the most common backup issues include:
- Backups are not performed every day.
- New critical systems or data are not added to the backup process.
- Backups take too long to finish and are canceled.
- Backup device is too small for the amount of data.
- Historical copies are not retained so old versions may be restored.
- Backup media is not reliably moved off-site.
- Backups are not encrypted and could be compromised if stolen.
- The backup device itself fails.
- Backups are not regularly tested to prove they are usable.
Secure Data Backup Solution
SecantSTOR is a family of managed backup services that provide cost-effective solutions for the backup of critical data. Your existing internet connection is used to efficiently backup data to two off-site data repositories. All data, during transfer and storage, is encrypted using 256-bit AES encryption for your safety and privacy. All SecantSTOR services are managed and monitored by Secant’s managed service engineers.
SecantSTOR services can be used as either an addition to your current backup process to increase reliability and to add off-site redundancy, or it may replace your current processes and remove the burden of maintaining daily in-house backups.
SecantSTOR DR Edition
The Disaster Recovery version of SecantSTOR continuously replicates an entire server, including its operating system, applications and data to Secant’s data center. Should a disaster render your server unavailable, Secant can start up a replacement version of your server that can be accessed remotely or physically. The replacement server will have data that is current to within 1 to 5 minutes of the original server’s failure. Optional DR testing and validation is available.
SecantSTOR Server Edition
Server Edition performs daily backups on all or part of designated file or application servers. Your data is replicated to two data vaults over 150 miles apart. This offers superior protection should a natural disaster impact one of the data vault sites.
SecantSTOR Server Edition can be configured to retain up to one year of daily backups allowing you to retrieve the most recent version of a file or any of the older versions. Should a backup fail to complete for any reason, monitoring will proactively alert you and Secant’s Service
Desk engineers will work to make sure the issue is resolved and the next backup runs without incident.
Included with the Server Edition is an annual data archive which is an off-line copy of up to one year of daily backup files. This annual archive is also encrypted and allows you to restore from any backup and any server throughout the last year (depending on how long you choose to retain your data). You can set the date that the archive takes place to match your business cycle.
