One4Support Online Backup Services

A backup is a spare copy of the data on your PC, server or laptop. Traditionally a backup is made on tape. This is a method plagued with many inherent problems and risks which has shown to provide only modest reliability at best.

With One4Support Online Backup Services One4Support introduces a state of the art and safe alternative to backup on tape. Instead of writing data to tape, your data is sent to our data centres using your internet connection, protected by industrial strength encryption.

One4Support Online Backup has many advantages over traditional tape backup. It is highly cost effective, safe, and reliable. It also offers much more frequent and therefore up to date backups of your precious data.

Security

To us the safety and confidentiality of your data are paramount. Your data is always completely encrypted before transferring out of your organisation and subsequently kept encrypted on the One4Support servers at all times.

For maximum security we use 128 bits AES encryption, the current standard of the American Government and the Ministry of  Defence. The transfer of your already encrypted data is again through a secure connection, providing double encryption. Furthermore, the One4Support data centres are secured and well guarded environments. No one, not even One4Support itself, has access to your data without the encryption keys which are known only to yourself.

Reliability

Online backup is executed automatically, making it impossible to forget. Independent of any human involvement your backups will continue through weekends and holiday periods. Backups are automatically checked for integrity and you will receive prompt email reports.

Your backup is replicated across multiple One4Support data centres spread over different locations. This measure guarantees your data will survive any calamity, not only in your organisation but even with One4Support itself.

Current backups

It is very important that your backup is as up to date as possible. In case of a restoration you will minimise the cost of data loss and reprocessing the data. One4Support Online Backup Service offers you the possibility of unlimited backup operations: daily, hourly or every 10 minutes. The choice is yours.
