IDrive - Automating Your Data Protection

March 27, 2015

Every business seems like they have it all figured out - a brilliant IT infrastructure, a pro-active engineer and a proven desire to prevent data loss by making a copy. But when a disaster strikes, say a hardware failure, a natural disaster or a theft - will make you reconsider that trinity.

While storing critical information to physical devices may still be alive and well for most businesses, cloud storage is more preferred these days. First off, people find uploading information to an off-site source easier to use, economical and reliable than conventional methods.

IDrive Gives You Just This

IDrive is a simple cloud storage service that offers exactly these. All you have to do is download and install the app; select the files to be backed up, and transfer files to the cloud. Once you have a data protection process in place, IDrive takes care of the rest.

Install IDrive and Protect Data from Multiple Devices

It doesn’t matter which device you use - PCs, Macs, iPhones, iPads and Android devices – IDrive can transfer data from all of them into a single account. You can install IDrive on any device and transfer critical data effortlessly. When you transfer data to the cloud from a device, a unique folder with the name of the device will be created in your cloud account for easy accessibility and prevents data overlap.

Encrypted Local Data Storage for Faster Restore

You can now encrypt files, of any size and save it to IDrive Wi-Fi – external hard drive. While online storage helps you restore your files in an event of a disaster, it can take a while with low speed internet. With Local storage, you can restore your files in no time.

Advanced Protection for All Your Running Servers and Databases

If you have a server - MS SQL Server, MS Exchange Server, Hyper-V, MS SharePoint Server or Oracle Server – IDrive backs them up as well. With a Graphical User Interface, you can easily configure data transfers to the cloud or even schedule it for a future date and time.

Enterprise Grade Security

IDrive leaves no stones unturned to protect your data – all your data is compressed and encrypted using 256-bit AES encryption during transfer and storage. This means, your data is protected even when it’s being transferred to the cloud. On signup, you can choose a private encryption key (known only to you), to maintain utmost data confidentiality.

Scheduling – For Automatic Data Protection

IDrive never forgets to protect your data, even if you do. You can schedule your data transfers to weekly once or on a daily basis. It also has continuous data protection (CDP) that automatically recognizes the changes made to your files that are less than 500 MB in size and backs them up in Real-Time.

Remotely Manage Your Files

If you want to manage data protection from computers in multiple locations, IDrive helps you do that as well, through the internet. Just make sure that the device you’d like to manage is turned on and has an active Internet connection.

Keep Yourself Informed

IDrive keeps you completely informed on each step of your data transfer process. Activity reports, status reports, share reports and notification will keep you posted on your data protection status.

All of these and more with IDrive is just what need to make sure that you have all the benefits of cloud storage. So why wait? Signup with IDrive now!
