The Attix5 Backup Professional software and the Data Safehaven service uses a combination of SSL secure data transmission and Blowfish encryption to ensure the security of your data.
When the Backup Client has to transfer data to the Backup server, it connects using a secure SSL version 3.01 (1024 bit RSA key exchange, 128 bit RCA stream cipher and SHA-1 integrity checking) connection to transfer the data.  Signed SSL certificates and Certificate Revocation Lists (CRL's) are used to verify server integrity.  Data is stored using 448-bit Blowfish encryption to encode the data on the server.  This is considerably greater than the encryption used for Internet banking and online credit card transactions.
Security standards and techniques employed by Attix5 Backup Professional, which are audited by PricewaterhouseCoopers, ensure that sensitive data remains safe when transferred over the Internet or stored on a server.
Encryption used in Attix5 Backup Professional
Encryption is a process to scramble data in such a way that it becomes unusable by anyone without the encryption key.  This encryption key is not stored on the servers and is only known to you. 
NB.  If you forget your encryption key, you will not be able to retrieve your data!
Data storage
Your data is stored on 2 independent and physically remote servers.  The data is mirrored from the primary server to the secondary server.   Both servers are housed in highly secure disaster recovery buildings run by IBM Business Continuity Services.
Blowfish is an encryption algorithm.  It is symmetric block cipher, which uses a variable-length key from 32 bits to 448 bits.  Our service uses the maximum strength 448-bit key.
The Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) is a commonly used protocol for managing the security of data transmission.  SSL uses the public-and-private key encryption system from RSA, which includes the use of a digital certificate.
