Data Backups

Cobalt Backups

Using our remote backup software couldn’t be simpler. With just three steps you will be able to secure your critical files.

  • Small software program installed on your computer
  • You select the data, type and time of backup
  • Software works automatically via the internet

After the simple installation of the Cobalt Backup software you select the files and/or directories with your important data. You’ll only have to do this the first time, but it’s possible to change the selection later if necessary.

The first time a full offsite backup will be made from the selected files. You can choose whether to use encryption and/or compression during the backup. The files are sent to the Secure Backup offsite servers for save storage through a SSL (Secure Sockets Layer) connection.

A daily (incremental) backup will be made of all new and changed files at a time of the day determined by yourself. After each backup you’ll receive an email notification with a detailed report of your backup. If the Secure Backup servers didn’t receive your scheduled backup you’ll be notified as well.

Your files will be stored twice at different remote locations to ensure that there’s always a copy available 24 hours a day, 7 days per week.
