Ease the Backup Burden for Not-for-Profit Customers

Not-for-profit organizations rarely have sufficient IT resources but often require enterprise-class data backup and recovery services.


Not-for-profit organizations need the same quality of IT infrastructure and services as mid-size and large enterprises. Finding a trusted partner to reliably manage backup services lets the organization focus on strategic IT initiatives that support its core mission.

In addition to having limited IT budgets and infrastructure, Not-for-Profits (NFPs) may also be impacted by compliance requirements, such as the Personal Information Protection and Electronic Documents Act (PIPEDA). BackupSilo’s cloud backup and data recovery platform, used in conjunction with IT industry best-practices, protects sensitive 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, nearly impossible to replicate at in-house or office facilities.

BackupSilo also safeguards distributed data to fully meet compliance requirements that include remote data usage – which today is widespread. 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.
