Government is subject to its own legislation and regulatory frameworks when deploying cloud backup and recovery solutions as part of its disaster recovery planning.
Ultimately, public sector organizations are looking for online backup and data recovery services that make the best use of taxpayer dollars. They must also ensure the highest possible standards of data and security protection for its citizens. Government agencies look for technology partners who understand their compliance requirements and can work within tight budgets to provide solutions.
BackupSilo’s secure cloud backup and data recovery platform is guided by IT industry best-practices. It protects sensitive public information by getting the data offsite, offline, and out-of-reach. Storing backup data in our secure, state-of-the-art vaulting facilities protects it against threats including natural disasters, human error, or sabotage. Our solution eliminates unnecessary exposure of information, while ensuring data integrity and privacy.
Encrypting backup data containing sensitive public information is an advisable precaution to prevent unauthorized access. For these protection requirements, BackupSilo has unmatched capabilities, including 256-bit AES encryption of all data “in transit” or “at rest” in storage. If data residency is a requirement, we have you covered there as well since all data is exclusively stored and managed on Canadian soil in one of our world-class Tier 3 data centres. Our backup and storage vault locations also come with rigid and regularly tested physical security and protocols.
BackupSilo also safeguards distributed data to fully meet compliance requirements that include remote data usage. Our encryption and Lost Data Destruction (LDD) capabilities can automatically delete and overwrite data that administrators specify. It can prevent potentially disastrous and embarrassing situations from a lost or stolen notebook computer, password tampering, or other forms of unauthorized access. In the event of small-scale data losses, users can quickly recover their data over the Internet.
