The location of backed-up data is of critical importance. If your back-up tapes are on top of your server they could be destroyed as well in the event of a disaster. Many of our customers elect to have their most important data backed up through PCS Datasafe to secure servers on the internet.

The data is compressed and encrypted before transmission and stored in secure data-centres which are widely distributed for resilience. PCS Datasafe features include:

  • Scheduled backups with up to 28 versions of previous documents
  • Compliance with all relevant data retention legislation and the Data Protection Act. Particularly useful for companies who are obliged to archive data for long periods of time
  • 448-bit encryption with data compression for optimal transfer
  • Secure storage in dedicated centres
