What is online backup?
Online backup is an automated solution that allows PCs, laptops and file servers to backup and recover data securely online, share files, collaborate with co-workers, store files online, and access data from a remote location. Our service automatically backs up computers via a secure internet connection to our secure data centres. Your data is secured with military-grade encryption (128-bit) for safe transmission to our off-site storage locations.
How does online backup work?
A small software agent is installed on the PC or file server to be backed up. This software helps you select which data is to be backed up, it then manages the connection to the internet and the encryption / compression of the data prior to transferring it to the secure data centres. It provides a simple method to view and restore backed up documents, as well as viewing log files to review backup activity
