VAULT400 DELIVERS ADVANCED CLOUD BACKUP END-TO-END SECURITY
The trusted experts in cloud backup and disaster recovery provide VAULT400-based technology to over 35,000 companies worldwide
News headlines appear daily reporting incidents in which a company's security is breached, leading to the loss of or threat to valuable intellectual property. The New York Times and Wall Street Journal recently acknowledged they had fallen victim to sophisticated cyber-attacks allegedly by the Chinese government. The incidents supported security analyst predictions and F.B.I. concerns that state-sponsored espionage and cyber-attacks will continue to grow in 2013. [Source: Entrepreneur Magazine]
Ill-advised perceptions of data safety have led many small to mid-sized business owners to neglect security measures entirely, or they continue to rely on tape-based backups which are vulnerable to theft due to the manual handling involved. Typically, tape backups are not encrypted because the process can be time-consuming. UCG's VAULT400 cloud backup and disaster recovery solutions remove the human element and threat of exposure through data-centric technologies of Delta processing, compression, and encryption to create a powerful and reliable security model.
NIST validated AES encryption
The National Institute of Standards and Technologies (NIST) created the Federal Information Processing Standards (FIPS) Publications 197 specification as the standard for testing AES encryption technology. Companies that are FIPS Certified meet the communications Security requirements for AES data protection and compliance. VAULT400's AES encryption technology is fully FIPS Pub 197 certificated.
The importance of SSAE16 (SAS 70) compliance
SSAE16 (SAS 70) is the authoritative guidance that allows service organizations to disclose their control activities and processes to their customers and their customers' auditors in a uniform reporting format. In today's global economy, service organizations or service providers must demonstrate that they have adequate controls and safeguards when they host or process data belonging to their customers.
ADVANCED DATA SECURITY FEATURES
User initiated connections only
All interactions between the client systems and the cloud backup are initiated by the client system. Data is pushed outbound to one of VAULT400's secure data centers. No inbound connections into the client's network are made during either backup or restore session. There is no entry attempt from a foreign source through the client firewall.
Strong data encryption
VAULT400 offers multiple, user defined encryption levels. Higher levels include 256 bit AES, 128 bit AES, 112 bit 3DES, and 128 bit Blowfish. Data remains encrypted throughout transmission and while in storage and is only deciphered upon restore with the help of a user-defined password key. Not even UCG personnel have access to this password key.
Secure over-the-wire encryption
The backup and restore activity is encrypted. This "over-the-wire" encryption, assures that transmission of backup data between the client and the cloud backup is secure, even when using the Internet.
Authentication, Authorization, and Accounting
VAULT400 requires that each backup and restore session is both authorized and authenticated before data transfer can commence. The vault will uniquely identify and validate the system, the account, and the username and password used to access the vault. All of the authentication information is always encrypted. All backups and restores are tracked in detailed logs.
VAULT400's patented DeltaPro® technology speeds up backup operations and drastically reduces storage costs as only new and changed data blocks within a file are backed up. All backup data can be compressed and encrypted before being transferred and remains that way on the storage vault, increasing security. VAULT400 delivers superior performance that optimizes backup and restore functions, lowers back-end storage costs and helps businesses to gain and maintain regulatory compliance.
Optimized data compression
Data is compressed and encrypted during backup (or unencrypted and decompressed during restore) on the client's local systems before it leaves the firewall and remains encrypted during transmission and storage in VAULT400's secure data centers.
Secure data center facilities
For VAULT400 Protect customers, VAULT400's secure Tier-1 data centers are constructed to carrier class specifications. All customer data is stored on state-of-the-art fully redundant hardware, continually backed up, and proactively monitored around the clock. In order to enter the vaulting facilities, personnel are required to meet security clearance and must pass biometric verification. The facilities employ 24-hour security and climate/humidity monitoring to ensure full protection of the hardware and data. Each data center is supplied with redundant power and internet connections and includes fire and earthquake protection.
