Online Backup ...
With Online Backup your data is being backed up by making use of the Internet.
The very first backup may take a long time, depending on your internet upload speed and the size of your data. After that, only changes are transmitted. All data transmission is compressed and protected by encryption.
Backups are automatically running in background. You just declare which data should be protected, that's all. No schedule is required. Even though you are working on a document, it is backed up using VSS, a snapshot technology built into the Operating System.
The Backup Software id free of charge, you only pay for the storage you reserved in the Online Backup System.
The Online Backup Systems itself is protected by redundant Disks.
All data stored on Disk is for maximum security encrypted.
Your User profile:
- You have important private data on you PC / Laptop
- You have sensitive business data on your PC / Laptop
- Your kids are working on school projects using the PC / Laptop
If this is your profile you should seriously think about to save your data regularly!
Data for backup processing are easily selected with a few mouse clicks. Once selected, data is protected without any further action.
Safe and fast data security
The backup software makes use of local data deduplication and compression to get the fastest possible transfer rate with the lowest possible bandwidth. All backups are made on block level differences.
Data restoration uses a intuitive wizard for easy handling. Some data may be previewed before the actual restore (e.g. Word, Excel etc).
Intelligent and easy Backups
The Backup software recognizes file versions in order to restore any changes.
The basic contract already contains a retention time of 30 days. During the retention time any version is available for restoration.
The most actual version is during the contract time restorable all the time, except if actively deleted.
Confidential and safe
The software uses special technologies and industry standards for data protection and to ensure data safety. All the data is transferred encrypted and compressed over the internet. The safest methods are applied to protect data against unauthorized access.
The data will only be stored in our own data center at our headquarters.
The backup client software is currently only available in English and French.
Although you may use a modem link, you should prefer a xDSL link. An upload rate of 128kBit might be adequate, but the higher the better and obviously the faster it goes.
You should take care to use a flate rate contract in order to avoid high costs.

- I already make regular data backup onto an external disk. Shall I also consider making Online Backups ?
- Yes indeed. A backup onto an external disk is not a bad idea but only as a temry solution.
If your external disk fails, your data is not protected anymore. You may avoid this with a second or a third drive, but most likely are you also missing generations (versions) of backups. Unless you have them you are safe.
... and it is cumbersome, manual and probably not processed when urgently required!
By using a fully automated solution you no longer have to think about.
Our solution tracks any change and saves it automatically !
- What about data security on the Online Backup System?
- All the data is transferred encrypted and compressed over the internet. The safest methods are applied to protect data against unauthorized access.
