Feature Security-Focused Storage

Safeguard your data with strong encryption

Secure cloud-first backups offer an efficient way to keep a copy of your data off-site, meeting one part of the industry best practice “3-2-1” data protection strategy (three copies of your data, on two types of media, with one of them off-site). But not all clouds are created equal. Some backup vendors send your data to a large public cloud provider, and others put the burden on you to select—and pay for—your own cloud service. SolarWinds® Backup includes storage in our global private cloud in the base price, and we realize fully that when sending backup data off-site, security is critical.

That’s why SolarWinds Backup is designed to secure your backups using AES 256-bit encryption. Backups are sent via a TLS 1.2 connection to help safeguard privacy and data integrity. Additionally, all backup data is stored in data centers with physical security safeguards in place.

Features

  • Globally distributed data centers: We use multiple ISO-certified data centers located globally.
  • Private encryption key: If you choose private-key encryption, only the key holder can recover and access backup data, which helps eliminate unauthorized access.
  • End-to-end encryption: Backups are encrypted on-site, then transferred over one-way TLS 1.2 connections and stored encrypted in the cloud. Backup data is only decrypted during a recovery at the business’ site.
  • Advanced Encryption Standards (AES): Backup data is protected using AES 256-bit encryption.
