Don't let your business become just another statistic.
Secure off-site backup & recovery
We strive to deliver a better, simpler, more reliable and more secure solutions to our customers and partners.
The iStor platform incorporates and utilizes the sophisticated, state of the art technology necessary to implement a scalable architecture while providing a powerful, robust and secure solution.
We develop our products bearing in mind a statement of Antoine de Saint-Exupery.
Perfection is achieved, not when there is nothing more to add, but when there is nothing left to take away.
All of the main technologies included in iStor were designed and built by iStor from scratch, optimized for performance and scalability, and with particular attention to the security. iStor architecture is also future proof, allowing new technologies to be added easily.
There is no need for a customer to plan their future backup needs, iStor can be used across multiple locations, scale from megabytes to petabytes, and can provide a secure solution and central management across the even largest enterprises.
All iStor technologies and features are included in every installation for no additional or future costs and are automatically updated whenever there is a new feature available.
As data volume continues to grow at exponential rates, companies of all sizes are facing the challenge of managing and protecting this data.
iStor global multi-level data de-duplication significantly reduces backup window, network bandwidth utilization and storage needed to retain and protect enterprise data.
iStor Data de-duplication identifies and eliminates redundant data at the source level and across the entire organization - including remote offices and mobile users.
- Reduced backup window
- Reduced total cost of ownership (TCO)
- Reduced network bandwidth utilization
- Faster recovery
Remote office backup
In today's highly distributed business world, companies are operating more remote/branch offices (ROBO) and hiring more remote employees than ever before.
Data in remote/branch offices requires the same type of protection, security and availability as data residing within the data centre, and is subject to the same compliance requirements.
And that's not so simple without tools designed specifically for remote offices and remote employees.
iStor dramatically reduces the risks, costs and operational failures associated with protecting and recovering data at your remote/branch offices.
Whether you choose to perform backups at the remote site for local restore or over a WAN for distributed protection, iStor provides multiple advanced features, including centralized management, global source-based de-duplications, encryption and bandwidth throttling.
Mobile users backup
When searching for data backup solutions, people often overlook notebooks and other mobile devices. Secure backup isn't just for big corporate servers… On the contrary, most top executives and highly skilled professionals are storing more and more data on their notebooks, risking major losses in time and information if their notebooks are stolen or the hardware fails.
iStor continuously and automatically protects data on notebook and other mobile devices. With data de-duplication and highly effective compression, there's no performance impact on the end users or the network.
Backup administration can be performed centrally by IT staff or locally by the end user.
Gartner states that on average, a notebook is stolen every 53 seconds!
According to Ponemon Institute 2009 research, The average cost of a business's lost notebook is $49,246.
A high level of data security is a key element in our backup service.
Before any data is transmitted, it is encrypted using industry-leading data encryption technology and remains encrypted while in storage and at rest.
Only the customer has the encryption key and all processes are logged, providing a clear view of the chain of custody.
If the encryption key is lost, there is no mechanism or facility allowing the recovery of encrypted data. To prevent such a situation we recommend a third party Encryption Key Escrow Service.
Secure communication (SSL) provides additional security on top of the data encryption during all communication and data transmission.
Data is one of a company's most valuable assets and encrypted backup provides an important layer of protection.
Remove the need for local admin staff to do backups at remote sites.
Manage all your backup administration from one central location. Restore any data from any backup to where ever it's needed in the business.
Immediate off-site storage
Data is compressed and encrypted, then immediately transferred to 3 geographically dispersed secure data centres or to your off-site/DR location.
No human intervention is required to get the information to a safe location. This ensures that all of your data is protected and recoverable, whether to an existing location or to a disaster recovery facility.
