These are the minimum requirements needed to run the Depositit application.
Depositit store each users data to a minimum of two geographically separate and commercially independent data centres each served by an independent IP provider (providing bandwidth connectivity). This assures that not only is data loss not an option but data integrity, service availability and consistency can be guaranteed even if two data centres are unavailable.
The data centres are connected to each other by way of a VPN (Virtual Private Network). This offers fastest transfer rates and further security as it is not accessible to the general Internet using public.
All storage servers within each location are fully redundant in their own right - running RAID5, which allow for immediate hot swappable hard drives in the event of drive failure.
Firewalls are used to protect any data sensitive components of the Depositit servers from unauthorized access over the public Internet. These act as virtual security guards.
Our servers are sited in three secure data centres benefiting from full UPS power protection and back up generators with constant monitoring 24 hours a day. The data centre is operationally equipped using water free fire suppressant systems, climate and moisture content control.
The security measures integrated into Depositit use highly regarded processes and algorithms researched, tested and accredited by academic institutions and industry.
Data is transferred to our servers using SSL (Secure Sockets Layers), which has been universally accepted on the World Wide Web for authenticated and encrypted communication between clients and servers. Encryption is a method of scrambling information within a file so as to make it completely unintelligible. All data sent over an encrypted SSL connection is protected with a mechanism for detecting tampering - that is, for automatically determining whether the data has been altered in transit.
All data stored at Depositit is retained in an encrypted format (448-bit) so that there is no possibility of unauthorized access. The mode of encryption employed by Depositit is called Blowfish, one of the most sophisticated algorithms available. It is endorsed by the military and widely used by the banking and telecommunications industries. To understand how encrption works please click here. Additonal information on blowfish technologies can be found at www.counterpane.com/blowfish.html.
All encryption occurs "on the fly" which means that it happens automatically as a file is transferred with no additional input from the user. In this way the user can be assured that all data being transmitted to and from Depositit is totally secure.
Login to the servers is based on a unique combination of the user name and password that provides access to a randomly generated encryption key ensuring a dedicated encryption and decryption code for each user.
Additional security levels ensure that if a user inputs an incorrect password on more than three consecutive occasions the service will automatically lock them out. In this way brute force attacks are severely limited as it is almost impossible for anyone to guess a password within three attempts.
By default we retain the last 30 versions of your information. This means when you overwrite a document or get a virus you can easily go back in time and retrieve a clean copy.
To understand this better, imagine you backed up to a new Disk each day. At the end of the month you would have 30 Disks on the shelf allowing you to retrieve information from any of those days.
The backup software does this automatically for you and on day 31, day 1 drops off and the cycle revolves so you always have the last 30 days available to restore from.
You can reduce your Backup Cycles down to just 1 so that each backup overwrites the last one or increase it to store up to 10,000 back copies!
Depositit is registered with the data protection registrar and does not make available any customer information to 3rd party organisations (i.e. we do not sell any information to marketing companies).
All data stored at Depositit is held within the United Kingdom
1000's of FSA Regulated Personnel along with lawyers, accountants and other regulated Professional Services use Depositit daily for their backup and business continuity requirements.
