Why Financial Institutions need SecureBackup
In North America alone, bank fraud costs institutions over 1 billion dollars a year. While more common forms of fraud include check kiting, counterfeiting, and forged signatures, hackers and digital thieves present an increasing threat to the financial industry.
If you visit the website for the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services, the Secretary provides a report of all breaches that have more than 500 victims. It is amazing to look at the volume of incidents and the quantity of innocent victims. Just a few years ago, a criminal group, dubbed “Carbanak, featuring cybercriminals from Russia, Ukraine, and other parts of Europe and China, reportedly infiltrated more than 100 banks in over 30 countries. It is estimated that this one group may have stolen at least $300 million.
In addition to these threats, super storms are becoming more and more common. When they strike, they often leave devastating destruction over a large region of a country. Power outages, floods, and other environmental damage can wreak havoc on the systems where important data, customer account information, and vital operational files are stored. SecureBackup was designed to help you have the necessary backups readily available, so that financial institutions can restore lost information promptly with minimal downtime.

What to Expect
Once installed and configured, the software runs in the background without interfering with other processes. Bandwidth Management technology allows your company to control download and upload speeds so as not to impede browsing by those who are working online. You are provided with a detailed log and history. This will give you a good overall view of how your program is working and that it is doing its scheduled tasks.
Powerful filter engines give the user control over which files and folders will be included or excluded for each backup. This allows the user to define when to do a complete backup, a backup of only recent changes, or a backup of all changes since the last complete backup. The backup is archived with standard ZIP compression. You can add a password to each backup for added security.
To make sure that your backup locations do not get bogged down by layers of repeated backups, the user can set retention rules while creating a backup job. This means that you control how long a file is retained. You can set parameters indicating when a backup should be deleted based on size, age, or if a specified data limit has been exceeded.
Through the provided Web Portal, files can be shared with authorized users. Restore functions can be executed from remote locations. And damaged or new computers can be downloaded with files necessary for that user. All computers that have the SecureBackup program installed can be managed through this same Web Portal.
