RBS Adds CDP

MEMPHIS, Tenn. -- Remote Backup Systems Inc. (RBS) today announced a major enhancement to its award-winning RBackup online backup software solution with the addition of Continuous Data Protection (CDP) functionality, which offers users a feature-rich yet easy-to-use set of file recovery and restoration tools to ensure the complete safety of a company’s business-critical information.

RBackup’s CDP provides customers with the highest levels of business continuity and disaster recovery through a more efficient BitBackup process featuring nearly limitless granularity. The CDP engine picks the files requiring backup and watches for when changes are made to them. Only these changes are saved, eliminating the need to acquire additional and costly storage space typically associated with full file backup. Users can choose to restore full file sets or any file up to a specific point in time.

An industry first, RBackup is the only CDP software storage solution that allows users to select the type of encryption they want to use to protect their data, making RBackup the most secure backup software available. Encryption schemes available include two forms of DES (56 bits and 168 bits Triple DES), three forms of AES (128, 192 and 256 bits) and 448 bits variable-key Blowfish. Clients can also enter their own encryption key, or they can use RBackup's key generator. The key generator creates "statistically perfect" encryption keys that are much more secure than human users can create.

“RBS continues to provide its customers with the highest levels of data protection and security while minimizing the management and cost headaches typically associated with backup,” said Rob Cosgrove, RBS CEO. “By empowering users with CDP functionality as part of their overall backup strategy, we are able to provide reduced backup windows while enabling full restores on the fly. Advanced encryption schemes, virtually limitless granularity and customizable retention policies position RBackup as an all-inclusive remote backup solution for any sized business.”
