File to Backup  – Software Security

Security is a huge issue when it comes to storing your files online. That’s why you need to make sure that your provider has encryption enabled.

Data stored by File to Backup is backed up to multiple storage servers at the data centres ensuring your data is fully protected.

The network is protected by enterprise-grade firewalls ensuring that once your data is on the servers only the people you want to access your data can.

Files stored on the servers are encrypted, using military grade, AES-256 encryption, so in the very unlikely event that someone compromised the data storage and stole any data it would be meaningless. This storage encryption is done by web service on receipt of the file, rather than by the Desktop Sync Software on your PC to allow you to be able to, e.g. view files through the web portal, to download the unencrypted files directly from the web portal etc.

The encryption you can use between the Desktop software and the Servers is a separate process – more similar to the SSL connection you use when sending data to and from your online bank.

What is SSL?

  1. A browser attempts to connect to a website secured with SSL.
  2. The browser requests that the web server identify itself.
  3. The server sends the browser a copy of its SSL Certificate.
  4. The browser checks whether it trusts the SSL Certificate. If so, it sends a message to the server.
  5. The server sends back a digitally signed acknowledgement to start an SSL encrypted session.
  6. Encrypted data is shared between the browser and the server.

SSL encryption is the same level of protection large banks use, NSA, FBI and other high security establishments.

User’s data can only be accessed by being logged in as the user, except where it is shared publicly when it is visible to everyone through the sharing portal.

There is a strict processes in place to ensure that the team cannot access customer data stored on File to Backup.

We can close a File to Backup account if the customer violates copyright regulations by publically sharing data that they do not own, but data stored privately on File to Backup is private and cannot be accessed by staff.
