Secure 128-Bit SSL Communication

All communications between Data Solutions OBS server and your computer are transported in a 128-bit secure socket layer (SSL) channel. Although your backup files travel through the Internet, eavesdroppers have no knowledge of what has been exchanged.

Encrypted Data

Your files are digitally zipped, then encrypted with your personal encryption key before they are sent to the OBS backup server. To everyone else, your data appears to contain nothing more than random, unintelligible content.

Top Encryption Algorithm

Your data is securely encrypted with 128-bit Twofish, a block cipher designed by Counterpane Labs and chosen by the National Institute of Standard and Technology (NIST) as one of the five finalists for Advanced Encryption Standard (AES). The schema has been under frequent public review, yet to date there have been no known successful attacks.

Personal Encryption Key

Only you have the encrypting key. This key is used to encrypt your data and is known only by you. Data Solutions doesn't know it, and it is never transmitted online to any other source.

Restricted Access

You have the option to restrict access to your backup files from the set of IP addresses you pre-define. If someone tries to access your data from an IP address not on your specified list, access will be denied. This is an additional security measure to ensure your data is available only to the known locations of your choice, even in cases where the user name, password and encryption key are known.

Customized Plans

Data Solutions OBS fees are calculated on the maximum zipped storage recorded per month. Storage refers to the storage of backup data stored in compressed form. Under most circumstances, you can assume a 2:1 compression ratio. Prices range from $100 per month for 1 GB of storage to $750 per month for 10 GB of storage. Plans are customized for your company's backup specifications.
