I have migrated my data to IDrive® e2. How does the IDrive® e2 ensure security of my data?

IDrive® e2 transmits all files using an encrypted TLS connection. Developers are encouraged to add their own encryption to their files before migrating them to IDrive® e2. They can also set Server-Side Encryption on IDrive® e2 buckets.

Data is stored in enterprise-class data centers equipped with state-of-the-art facilities — custom-designed elevated floors, HVAC temperature control systems with designated cooling zones, seismically-braced racks — and physical security features. The data centers are periodically checked for vulnerabilities in the network infrastructure with third-party audits.

In addition to that IDrive® e2 uses a combination of object lock, versioning, and data retention features to secure against data loss from ransomware and accidental deletion or modification.
