Technology

  • We’ve layered state-of-the-art technology to keep your data completely secure.
  • Data is encrypted before it leaves your network.
  • Data is transmitted using 256-Bit AES Encryption and Secure Socket Layer (SSL) technologies.
  • Your data is stored in encrypted format in our Dublin data centres.
  • Both facilities are secure and require photo id and security clearance to access.
  • Our servers are connected to Cisco powered, gigabit redundant BGP peered backbones, ensuring 100% up-time and availability.
  • All facilities have fully redundant power, air conditioning, fire suppression technology and full network monitoring 24/7/365
All communications between the BackupVault Server and your computer are transported in a 256-bit SSL (Secure Socket Layer) channel. Although all your backup files travel through a public network (internet), eavesdroppers have no knowledge of what has been exchanged.
All of your files are first zipped and encrypted with a defined encrypting key before they are sent to the BackupVault server. The files are visible to you alone and indecipherable to anybody else.
The encryption key used to encrypt your files resides only on your computer and is known only to you. It is never transmitted anywhere across the network.
Currently, the algorithm that we are using to encrypt your files is 256-bit blowfish. It is a block cipher designed by Counterpane Labs. It was also one of the five Advanced Encryption Standard (AES) finalists chosen by National Institute of Standard and Technology (NIST). It is subject to frequent public reviews, however no known successful attack against this algorithm has ever been reported.
You can also restrict access to your backup files from the set of IP addresses you defined. If someone tries to access your data from an IP address not on your defined list, their access will be denied.
