We employ robust encryption measures, ensuring that all your data is encrypted both during transit and while at rest. What sets us apart is that the encryption key is known only to you, the customer. This means that you have exclusive ownership and full control over your data, providing an extra layer of security and peace of mind
All data is encrypted at source
There is a common misconception that encrypting data at rest alone provides sufficient protection, and some believe that data-in-motion is fully secured with technologies like SSL We want to clarify that this assumption is not accurate, and leaving data unencrypted during transmission poses significant risks to data security.
iStor DataVault protect data right from its source to its destination and back.
Every piece of data is encrypted and made anonymous right from its origin, and it only gets decrypted at your location upon your specific request.
Extensive encryption options
In an era of ever-evolving cyber threats, we believe in going the extra mile to ensure the integrity and confidentiality of your data. While many services limit you to AES encryption, we empower you with a choice. You can select the encryption method that best aligns with your security strategy, compliance requirements, and peace of mind.
iStor DataVault provides not just one, but four different encryption options: AES, Serpent, TwoFish and Mars.
Secure Encryption key management system
The importance of a secure encryption key management system cannot be overstated. It's the bedrock upon which data security is built and is critical for safeguarding sensitive information in an increasingly digital world.
The encryption key is like a secret password that unlocks access to encrypted data. If these keys fall into the wrong hands, it can lead to unauthorized data access and potential data breaches. That's why it's essential to have a secure system in place to manage these keys effectively.
Integrated user management system
Separating the backup user rights system from the server rights system is a crucial part of a strong security strategy for several reasons:
Principle of Least Privilege
This principle states that a user should have the minimum levels of access necessary to perform their duties. By separating backup user rights from server rights, you can ensure that backup users can perform their tasks without having unnecessary access to server functions, reducing the potential for misuse or accidental damage.
Separating these two systems creates a layer of security isolation. If an attacker compromises one system, they won't automatically have access to the other. This reduces the potential impact of a security breach.
Targeted Attacks Prevention
Backup systems are becoming a significant target for cybercriminals, particularly with the rise of ransomware attacks. If your backup user rights system is independent of your server rights system, it can add an extra layer of security, making it harder for attackers to compromise both systems simultaneously.
By keeping these systems separate, it ensures that any corruption, errors, or issues in one system will not directly affect the other, thus preserving the integrity of both the server and backup systems.
Depending on the industry and jurisdiction, there may be regulatory requirements to maintain separate access rights for different systems.
In essence, maintaining a separate backup user rights system from the server rights system is a best practice that helps enhance security, limit potential damage from breaches, and ensure smooth operations.
Multi-factor installation and access system
We understand that your data is invaluable, which is why we've fortified our software installation process with an advanced security protocol.
Our software requires not one, but four unique identifiers during the installation phase. This quadruple-check mechanism safeguards your data right from the start, ensuring only authorized installations occur.
Each piece of information works together like a high-security four-lock system, reinforcing your data's defense system. It's a fortress, built to give you a greater peace of mind and control.
Suspicious activity notification system.
We're not just safeguarding your data, we're vigilant about monitoring for any unusual activities that could pose a threat to your valuable information.
Powered by sophisticated detection algorithms, our backup system is always on high alert for signs of cyber threats such as cryptoviruses, or indicators of impending hardware failure. It's like having your own personalized security guard, vigilant around the clock, every day of the year.
