KineticD Online Data Backup Expert Tips: Data Security – Another Specialty of KineticD

Here at KineticD, we understand that supplying our customers with the most state of the art, cutting edge security tools available for their data is of the highest importance. After all, no amount of mobile data availability or ideal, scalable pricing systems mean anything to your SMB if your information is not protected from corruption, theft and all other forms of potential data compromisation. For this reason, we have spent the last 10 years perfecting our data protection procedures so that none of our over 40,000 business users ever have to worry about losing any of their precious, mission-critical data.

So, how do we keep our clients’ information safe? Well, to start, data protection with KineticD begins before any of your data even leaves your company’s system, with bank-grade, 448 bit Blowfish encryption being applied to your files from the moment that they are queued for the online backup process. Created in 1993 by Bruce Schneier as an alternative to existing DES algorithms, Blowfish encryption has stood the test of time by never having yet been cracked. It works by taking a variable key length and applying a 64 bit cipher to every block of data. Tech talk aside however, simply suffice it to say that there is a reason that this method of data encryption is considered bank or military-grade, and we believe that no customer of online data backup and cloud computing should have to settle for anything less than this most advanced level of data protection.

In addition to this, another aspect to our unbeatable data security practices is the state of the art password protection systems that we employ for all of our clients. Once again, the password protection protocols that we use are modeled after those of premier banking websites, with all passwords always being encrypted before they are stored on the authentication server. Because of this, all of our individual users are granted the ability to create custom-built encryption keys that only they have access to, which serves to protect all of their information with a unique user ID and password that only they know. In turn, our customers are the ONLY ones who can access their data, with even our most advanced-level engineer being unable to open any of our clients’ files!

But, our commitment to the security of our customers’ data certainly does not end there. We understand that no amount of data encryption and advanced password protocols can protect your data from natural disaster or theft. For this reason we employ a no-clone policy with redundant power supplied by dual power feeds and triple redundant diesel generators or dual redundant UPSs, all housed in our fire-resistant facility that is protected 24 hours a day by both our surveillance system and our personal security team of trained professionals. In addition to this, we employ certified SSAE16 data center standards, with Cisco-based switched networks that are all deployed with redundant internet providers, router systems and firewalls, and BGP/HSRP protocols with failovers so as to guarantee beyond a shadow of a doubt that all of our clients receive rock-solid, continuous data accessibility at all times, no matter what.

Finally, we take extensive measures to ensure that all of our customers’ backups are always successfully and precisely transmitted. We accomplish this through the use of a system of data verification that is second to none, in which data is verified using advanced level CRC signatures. Using this system, once your data is transferred to us, if that data does not pass the verification test it is then automatically sent back to your system to be compared to the original, and then once the error is resolved it is then resent to our servers to be checked again. Through this method we can always guarantee that all of your data that we store on our servers is always exactly in sync with the copy that you have on your system. And, this is just one of the many other advanced data security advantages that go into our patented Continuous Backup Software system that we provide to all of our clients.

While there does indeed still remain numerous additional aspects to our advanced data protection services, suffice it to say that we here at KineticD can guarantee you that we provide the most advanced data protection systems available on the market today, and proudly stand behind our legacy of over 10 years of cloud vendor experience in which we have never lost a client’s file. But, don’t just take our word for it, feel free to look online and see what others are saying about KineticD, or just stop by our website today to learn more about our history and the services that we are proud to provide.
