Introduction to Remote Backup

MyBackupServer remote backup uses a small application which is installed on your computer to automatically connect your computer to an off-site backup server. Your data is then sent – over the Internet – to the off-site serer where your data is backed up and kept safe. Once the software is installed on your computer, it does all the required backups automatically-meaning you don’t have to lift a finger. It’s up to you to decide when and how often you want your backups to run. Depending on your needs, you might choose to have your files backed up once a day, once an hour or as soon as a file is updated!

How does it Work?

At the scheduled time, MyBackupServer will automatically look for any files that have been updated. The program will:

1. Encrypt your data so that it no one can read it or hack into it while it’s in transit.
2. Next, send your data securely over the Internet to our DataCenter
3. Once your data arrives at our server, where it is stored for future modification or retrieval.

The server retains the encryption information to ensure the highest levels of security. Your data cannot be unencrypted except for with an authorized password that only you possess. This way, no roaming eyes, curious minds or evil hackers will be able to get a hold of your files and data.

Why Remote Backup?

Remote backup is unique among hard drive backup systems because it is the only system that stores your data in a separate location. What if your computer and attached USB drive were stolen? Your backup would be gone too! MyBackupServer remote backup will keep your files safe in the event of a disaster at home or in the office.
