Backup Security Using Encryption

Summary

Should I encrypt backups for increased security ?

Content

Ideally you would always encrypt your backups to prevent a full copy of your valuable data being essentially packaged up and ready to use by competitors, thieves or anyone else who can take your valuable data and use it for their own gain.

It could also be argued that on site backups have no encryption benefit if desktops and servers aren’’t encrypted, but the backup machine has all the data conveniently packed up as discussed above.

Secure Assure will work with you to advise on the pros and cons of encryption, the final informed decision will always lie with client.
