We have developed our Back-up and Disaster Recovery solution which protects your business when a natural disaster occurs or crucial data is lost.
Syntax DataShield is a fully customisable service allowing you to choose the level of involvement you want, ranging from a fully managed service where you will receive monthly reports on successful back-ups; to a more hands on approach where you will decide the frequency of back-up schedules.

The Syntax DataShield software compresses and encrypts your data on your computer before backing up to the backup server.
Syntax DataShield compresses and encrypts your backup data at the client machine itself and the compressed data is then transferred to our backup servers. Our software uses streamed compression of the backup data on the client side by using a well known algorithm. The compression ratio depends on the type of the file/folders configured for backup. For example, Excel and Word files, depending upon the content of the files get compressed to about 80% to 90%. If the backup data is already compressed (for example: jpg, gif or zip files), then the compression ratio will be lower.
Encryption and Security
Syntax DataShield uses streamed encryption using 448 (military level) bit encryption. It uses the well known blowfish encryption algorithm. The encryption happens on the client PC first then your data is transferred to the backup server. All data sent over the internet is encrypted, secure and therefore safe from hackers.
Who can view my data?
Since your data is encrypted even our own employees cannot view your data. We know how much data you are storing but cannot view the actual data files or its contents.

The Exchange Server Plugin backup uses the VSS API [Volume Shadow Copy Services] for Exchange Server 2010 and ESE API for other lower versions of Exchange to backup Exchange Server databases. In Exchange Server backup, the initial backup will be compressed and dumped locally and thereafter transferred to the secure offsite backup server. Locally dumped files will be deleted once the files are successfully transferred to the backup server thus releasing disk space in the local exchange server.
Backup all data as a windows service, so there is no need to be logged on to the server for backups to run. It will backup live Exchange or SQL databases. It can fully restore entire SQL databases or Exchange information stores after a complete loss.
Syntax DataShield now supports backup of clustered Exchange Server Information Store
Protect your SQL databases with our comprehensive SQL plugin.
Syntax DataShield supports backup of Microsoft SQL servers using SQL Server Plugin. SQL Server Plugin is a flexible and efficient option while backing up SQL servers.
Syntax DataShield SQL Server plugin uses VDI API to backup database(s) and then uploads the locally dumped file to the backup server.
Syntax DataShield provides three types of backups for SQL Server database :
Full - backs up the entire database.
Differential - Differential backup type backs up only modified extents since the previous full backup.
Transaction Log - backs up the active portion and truncates the inactive portion of the transaction log.

Disk Imaging can be used to create an exact disk image of your hard drive. These are very useful if you have a major server crash or hard disk failure. The system can be put back exactly using the restored image.
Incremental: The disk imaging also works incrementally allowing you to only backup the changes. You can then build up a library of disk images for use in recovery.
The disk imaging file integrates into the windows recovery console and can be used by booting from a windows CD.
Restored bare metal disk Images can also be used as a virtual machine, and boot up in VMWare or Virtual PC environment. In most cases this can be done in a few minutes, keeping server downtime to a minimum.
Requirements: Windows SBS 2008, Windows Server 2008 & R2 (Enterprise, Standard, Datacenter editions), Windows Vista (Business, Enterprise, Ultimate editions), Windows 7 (Professional, Enterprise, Ultimate editions).
