Data archiving allows you and your clients to keep data longer than the regular backup retention period and easily access it at any time, and file versioning makes it possible to keep as many versions of files as needed. Recover data faster by allowingSolarWinds MSP's backup solution to automatically choose between local storage and cloud storage for the recovery source.
- More Privacy —SolarWinds MSP uses either AES 128-bit, AES 256-bit or 448-bit Blowfish private key encryption to back up data, and data is encrypted in motion and rest. Secure multi-tenant architecture enables you to manage backup and recovery activities from a single dashboard. Data is stored in our either SSAE compliant or ISO certified data centers worldwide.
