ProSight BDR ServicesProSight Data Protection Services offer small and mid-sized businesses an affordable and fully managed service for secure backup/disaster recovery (BDR). ProSight DPS automates and monitors your backup processes and enables fast restoration of critical data, applications and virtual machines that have become unavailable or corrupted due to hardware failures, software bugs, natural disasters, human error, or malware attacks such as ransomware. ProSight DPS can help you protect, recover and restore files, folders, applications, system images, plus Hyper-V and VMware images. Critical data can be backed up to the cloud, to a local device, or mirrored to both.

Offered as a low-cost, flat-rate monthly service, ProSight DPS is a software-only BDR solution that requires no specialized hardware or other costly upfront investment. ProSight DPS includes unlimited backup to any local SAN, NAS or USB device. Pricing for cloud storage is based on the capacity required. Bare Metal Restores (BMR) allow rapid recovery of physical and virtual machines by avoiding the configuration issues associated with physical-to-physical and physical-to-virtual recoveries. You can use BMR restores to like or dissimilar hardware, and you can use point-in-time restores.

ProSight Data Protection Services incorporate tools from some of the industry's top BDR technology companies and offer military-grade security to meet all major compliance regulations including HIPPA, FIRPA, FINRA, PCI and Safe Harbor. Progent uses an enterprise-class remote monitoring and management (RMM) system to create, configure, monitor and manage your BDR solution and Progent's Microsoft-certified consulting team and certified VMware consultants can help you restore your data quickly in case of a catastrophe.

Key features of ProSight Data Protection Services
ProSight DPS offers a variety of features that deliver advanced backup and fast recovery capabilities at a price small and mid-size organizations can easily afford. These include application-aware backup and recovery for Microsoft Exchange and SQL, fast recovery of Hyper-V and VMware virtual machines, compliance with industry and government regulatory requirements, and support for unlimited local storage. If you choose the cloud backup option, your data is protected at two mirrored Tier 4 datacenters located in Los Angeles and Boston. A third datacenter in Montreal allows compliance with Canadian regulations on data management. Most importantly, ProSight DPS gives you access to the expertise of Progent's seasoned IT consulting team as a single point of contact to help you resolve virtually any technical issue.

Key features of ProSight Data Protection Services include:

Enterprise-class Data Protection

  • SQL-native and Exchange-native data protection technology supports non-disruptive backups of Microsoft SQL Server and Exchange Server instances, simplifies the configuration of incremental backups, and makes sure your vital business data is protected.
  • The ability to throttle bandwidth and schedule backups can prevent productivity loss due to overloaded networks.
  • Support for backing up and restoring System State allows fast recovery of systems responsible for managing your application settings, user permissions, profiles and other critical information.
  • ProSight DPS scales to match your business requirements. Your critical data will continue to be protected in case you exceed your storage quota before you revise your service plan.
  • You can request that a deleted file be archived for any length of time so that it can be easily recovered for audits, litigation, or any other purpose.
Fast and Reliable Recovery
  • Data restoration takes less time than with consumer-grade backup solutions. For example. ProSight DPS tested three times faster than Mozy. Another major factor that shortens disaster recovery time is the experience Progent's consultants offer for integrating your recovered data back into a cohesive system.
  • In case of a site recovery or any other scenario that requires large amounts of data to be restored, Progent can copy your recovered data to a drive and ship the drive overnight to your site in order to avoid WAN bandwidth constraints.
  • The dual-coast datacenters which host ProSight's cloud services are Tier 4 facilities with 99.995% availability and mirror one another, so your data can always be backed up and restored.
Military-grade Security
  • ProSight DPS data protected in the cloud is stored in two SSAE-16-certified datacenters in Boston and Los Angeles. The datacenters feature biometric controlled access, 24x7 monitoring, power backup and redundant Internet connections.
  • ProSight DPS uses 256-bit AES encryption and a private encryption key to secure your data. 256-bit AES encryption is used by DoD, approved by NSA, and has never been cracked. Encrypted data is transferred over 128-bit SSL, which is used by financial institutions in online banking. Onsite and in-transit encryption allows compliance with industry and regulatory security standards.
  • Private encryption gives you sole control over who can access your data. Consumer BDR products typically do not offer private-encryption but rely instead on a system-generated encryption key. This means your BDR provider may be able to access your sensitive data.
Regulatory Compliance
  • The ProSight   DPS solution for data backup, encryption, retention, and private encryption key allows small and mid-size organizations to demonstrate compliance with major federal and industry data security regulations and standards such as HIPAA, FINRA, PCI, Safe Harbor and FERPA.
