Protect your priceless data with IDrive cloud backup

March 20, 2019

On a daily basis, we use many files and are dependent on documentation related to our work. Whether it is creating reports or making plans for our business, routine use of data is indispensable. While we rely on this data, it’s important to understand that this data is prone to various risks too.

Be it a system crash, accidental deletion, or data theft, you could lose your data easily in any situation. Consequently, you may not be able to retrieve your data easily. However, with an effective cloud backup strategy you can keep your data protected at all times, thus avoiding inconveniences at a later stage.

IDrive cloud backup is designed to help you store your data for as long as needed. Therefore, during any unforeseen event, your data becomes easily available with IDrive online backup.

How can IDrive online backup help?

While most cloud backup solution providers charges are based on the number of computers / devices, IDrive online backup allows data transfer from unlimited devices to your cloud account, without any additional cost. You can backup data from unlimited PCs, Macs, iPhones, iPads, and Android devices to a single IDrive cloud backup account. Additionally, the centralised web console lets you manage all your online backup activities.

IDrive online backup is cross-platform compatible, therefore, you can support multiple types of devices easily. For instance you can backup data stores on a PC to a Mac and vice versa. You can also ensure security through our 256-bit AES encryption and a user-defined Private Encryption Key that is not stored anywhere on the servers. This way you can rest assured that only you have access to your data.

What are the main benefits of IDrive cloud backup?

  • True Archiving: All your data will be retained in your IDrive cloud account until you manually delete it or run ‘Archive Cleanup’.
  • Server Backup: Protect all your servers and running databases with IDrive’s secure online backup at reduced costs.
