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!
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.
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.
