Key features of ProSight Data Protection Services include:
Enterprise-class Data Protection
Fast and Reliable Recovery
- 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.
- 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.
- 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.
