    We know you have a business to run which is why we will remote-control onto your customers' devices to install, configure and support our software. There is no charge for this and it allows you to concentrate on running your business.


    How we protect your data

    We use non-reversible 448 bit encryption on your backups and encrypt all of your data before it leaves your premises. Backup data cannot be decrypted during transmission to our network nor can we access it without the backup password.

    Once the data arrives on our network it is stored on our fully redundant and highly available SAN storage platform. Your data is protected by RAID on our SANs and using software replication we replicate your data to another facility.

    Handling initial large backups or disaster recovery

    WorldBackups allows you to securely copy encrypted data on a customer's server to portable media. The media can be sent via courier and synced directly with our network at one of our facilities. This service is essential where large amounts of data cannot be transmitted over the internet.

    Will my backups be secure?

    • Yes. We encrypt your data with up-to 448 bit encryption. Your data is encrypted on your device before being transmitted to our online service. No one can decrypt your data in transit or when it is stored on our servers.
    • We also replicate your backups to a separate facility within minutes of your backup completing.
    • If you want to maintain a local tangible copy of your backup, this can be done easily during or after the installation of our client. All of your backups can be configured to backup to our service and to local media or DAS on your premises.

    What can WorldBackups backup?

    • The WorldBackups client is embedded with all of the Microsoft clients you would expect, such as Exchange 2003, 2007, 2010, 2013, MS SQL (all versions), SharePoint, Windows Server 2012 and Windows 8. You will also have access to Hyper V and Bare metal agents. There is no Microsoft system WorldBackups cannot back up.
    • WorldBackups also backs up VMware guests and MAC clients.

    Will my data remain durable at WorldBackups.net?

    • WorldBackups.net has been built from the ground up with durability in mind. Every subsystem benefits from an N+1 architecture design, meaning it cannot be affected by a single point of failure at any time on our network.
    • We also replicate your backups to a separate facility within minutes of your backup completing.

    How can I get my initial large backup into the cloud?

    • We can receive a disk off you the same day and plug it directly into our network. Once your files have been copied off your disk we can start a 'delta only' backup from your device to resume the backup.
    • We can also repeat this process should you need to get your data back quicker than you can restore over the Internet.
    • Whichever option you choose, your data will be encrypted on your removable disk at all times.
