Online backup service

October 2011 Security Services & Risk Management

Secure online backup offers compliance peace of mind.

Corporate voice and data service supplier Vox Orion says South Africa’s corporations are increasingly turning to hosted online backup services to store and protect sensitive information.

“Companies are being squeezed from two sides,” says Vox Orion MD Jacques du Toit. “On the one hand, they have to maintain accurate records of just about every customer interaction, including recordings of telephone calls, for up to five years. On the other hand, they have to ensure that customer’s personal information is not stored longer than absolutely necessary, and that it is kept safe.”

Du Toit says Vox Orion’s secure online backup service is built for compliance – as well as for cost effectiveness. “Your information is almost certainly safer in an off-site data centre than in your own basement,” he says, “especially if you have been storing taped backups of call records. That is no longer good enough.

“We designed our online backup to use bandwidth capacity that is otherwise idle at night,” he says. “Our customers are already paying for the pipe to their offices – this is making sure that capacity is put to productive use around the clock.”

Offsite archives are securely encrypted and a full audit trail is maintained of every time the archive is accessed or changed.
