Bank Grade Security
Armour Backups uses encryption methods used by the US Government and banks world-wide. All data is encrypted using (Advanced Encryption Standard) AES 256 bit encryption. The US government uses 256 bit key strength for top secret information.
Armour Backups believes your business data requires this same level of protection: We similarly implements 256 bit key strength.
What is data encryption? In simple terms, it is the process of transforming or scrambling information (using an algorithm) to make it unreadable to anyone, except those who hold the key.
Ultra-fast data recovery
A common method to protect your data against fire, flood and theft is online backup. While online backup on its own is a common backup solution, it does have some drawbacks. The biggest of these being the time it takes to upload and restore your data from the internet.
Below is an example of the time taken to backup and restore 50GB of data:
[backup] to Online: 5460 minutes
[restore] from Online: 1080 minutes
[backup] to external HDD (local): 6 minutes
[restore] from external HDD (local): 5 minutes
To have a sound backup solution, you need to be able to recover your data fast! This is where the speed of local backups cannot be matched when compared to online. To provide a complete backup solution all our plans offer a hybrid of both online and local backups to give you the best possible backup and recovery speeds possible. Recovery from the online backups should only be needed in rare circumstances when the data cannot be recovered from the local backup.
Outstanding Data Protection
The hard drives we provide to our silver/gold plan clients are not only fireproof but also waterproof and can be bolted to the ground. They are your company’s black box, like a black box in an aircraft. They can protect data from loss up to 1550°F for ½ hour and can be 10ft underwater for up to 72 hours. This premium hardware is built to perform in tough condition and fulfil the needs of the most exigent clients.
When other backup companies say they monitor your data this usually means they send you an automated email to notify you with all the technical details of what happened that day. Are you really interested in checking this email every day to make sure everything is ok? If something fails or is not right, then it is your responsibility to take action. This may involve calling your data backup provider or try to fix the problem yourself. Both alternatives take time and effort on your part.
Armour Backups takes a different approach to most backup companies; we monitor all backups for you every day. We have the ability to monitor not only your online backups but also your local backups. Accidently unplug your external (backup) HDD? Our powerful centralised monitoring routine will notify us of the incident before any damages occur. We are proactive in addressing those issues and if we are not able to address it on our end we will contact you for more information.
Having your backup’s completely taken care of and monitored means you can spend more time working on your core business and attending to clients and customers. It gives you peace of mind, being 100% certain that you data is safe.
