How DataSafe’s RemoteSafeTM Backup works

Cutting-edge backup software

We use iBusNova software to send your data to us via your internet connection.

iBusNova is DataSafe’s proprietary backup software that is compatible with all Windows operating systems above and is easy to install.

You select which drives, directories or files to backup or exclude. Backup can be from both local or on networked computers.

Apple Mac computers can be backed up via a Windows computer. If your organisations only has Apple Macs, ask us about our free Windows computer loan service.

Pre-set or on-demand backups

After the initial full backup, only files that have been changed and new files will be backed up.

You can choose whether to back up automatically at pre-set times, or you can backup on demand. You can also mix these as required.

When the backup process begins, our software will:

  • Collect, compress (between and 2-20 times) and encrypt your files
  • Check the compression and encryption
  • Automatically connect with DataSafe and transmit the data to our site

As well as keeping your current data online, we make a daily tape copy of your backup and secure it offsite from us.

Secure storage

The latest versions of your backup are kept online. When you need a backup it is placed online for instant recall by direct download, unless the amount of data means this would take too long. In that circumstance, the backup is brought to your site or sent to you on a memory stick or external hard drive.

In addition, all versions of your files are archived on tape (two copies) in fire-proof media safes for two years (or more as required by you).

Fully Managed Service

RemoteSafeTM is a fully managed service that it is hassle free for you. For those on fixed backup schedules we will contact you if we do not receive a backup or if we note any aspect of your backup that is out of your normal pattern.

DataSafe also offers a free helpline service, so you have peace of mind that you are backing up safely and securely every time.

IT Infrastructure and Support

As an independent company IT has always been a real minefield for us. Due to our growth and office move our IT infrastructure needed updating and improving. After looking for an IT provider who was both cost effective and efficient, I stumbled across a Datasafe team member. My initial conversation with them left me in no doubt that they were the right company for me. Unlike others I had spoken to they took the time to understand what we were about, what we needed and what would work best for us and most cost effective. There charges were also very reasonable and we quickly agreed to proceed. Things then moved quickly. They supplied and installed a new server and ensured the network, secure remote access to the server and all systems. I was confident in them sorting out my IT so I could concentrate on moving office and running my business. Any niggles have been minimal and DataSafe have continued to promptly iron out any issues promptly and sometimes gone beyond remit. There charges are reasonable and their personal service is a breath of fresh air. I cannot recommend them highly enough. Should anyone have any doubts I am happy to speak to anyone to recommend them..
