Computer crashes and accidental deletions happen. But lost data is a thing of the past with CrashPlan backup utility.

It even offers previous versions of each file in the event a file is restored.

CrashPlan Security


CrashPlan uses 448-bit file encryption so data stays encrypted until you need it restored. CrashPlan is also approved for FERPA data, if the user has prior approval.

However, please note that HIPAA and other sensitive data should never be stored on your computer’s hard drive and, therefore, will not be stored on your CrashPlan backup.
