New Back-IT-UP service for secure backups
Even though backing up the data on your computer gets less attention these days than issues like identity theft, it’s still a critical security procedure. ISC now has available a new for-fee service called Back-IT-UP, for backing up desktops, laptops, and servers. This easy-to-use service lets you define exactly what you want to back up and determine a convenient schedule for running your backups. All data are compressed and encrypted before being sent to the Back-IT-UP repository, which maintains copies of the backups both locally at Penn and at a remote, high-availability site off campus.
For more information about Back-IT-UP, please contact Nicole Werner, firstname.lastname@example.org.
