RocVault Cloud Backup and Recovery solution is a secure and trusted method to store company private data off site in a secure location. During a backup, all data is encrypted before leaving the company's computers or servers and is never accessible without the user's encryption key. This encryption key is stored only on the company's systems and never transmitted over the Internet. Furthermore, it is not stored on any RocVault servers, thus RocVault cannot access files or even read the file names unless authorized by the client. Only the encryption key holder maintains control of their data, eliminating the threat of unauthorized access.
Data is encrypted using a 256-bit Advanced Encryption Standard (AES) encryption technology. AES encryption was developed by the U.S. National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) and is now the state-of-the-art standard encryption technique for both commercial and government applications. Moreover, in June 2003, 256-AES was approved by the United States National Security Agency (NSA) for use encrypting the U.S. government's documents classified "TOP SECRET." Using this secure technology, data is initially encrypted during the initial backup and then encrypted once again during the Internet transfer, to and from the RocVault servers.
All client data is transferred and stored in two redundant, Level 4 SSAE 16 compliant secure data centers, located thousands of miles apart from each other. Each data center has 24/7 onsite monitoring, advanced security technology such as biometric access controls, backup generators and redundant connections to the Internet.
