If there’s one thing we’ve learned about I.T pros and security fanatics, it’s that they don’t read press releases, so you probably didn’t see the one about Backupify’s new security features. In case you missed it, below is a summary:
- Bucket-level versioning creates multiple copies of each data point and retains that data once any change is made from the original document. This gives us the ability to preserve, retrieve, and restore earlier versions of data stored in an Amazon S3 bucket.
- AWS multi-factor authentication gives Backupify an additional layer of security mitigating risks around delete operations.
Backupify also partnered with Rapid7 to conduct penetration testing, identify the largest potential threats and provide guidance on how to mitigate any risk associated with those threats. This structured approach to security identifies the top threats that have the greatest potential impact on an organization’s infrastructure.
Security matters immensely for a backup company, so when comparing Google Apps backup providers, ask if they have been tested by an outside security firm. Backupify has, because the security of your data is our top priority. For more information on Backupify security, feel free to check out our Backupify Security Brief.
