Regulatory compliance reaches far and wide. Any business which stores private and confidential information related to clients and employees must comply with regulations around the accessibility, security, and retention of that information.
Traditional backup methods often fall short in helping companies become compliant. The table below compares traditional backups with how BlackBox Online Backup provides convenient and cost effective solutions to compliance issues for the following regulatory acts:
  • Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA)

Traditional Backup BlackBox Online Backup
Backing up to removable media typically requires human intervention and handling of backup media. Automation through tape robots is costly and out of reach for smaller businesses. BlackBox Online Backup is fully automatic and requires no removable media or human intervention.
Removable media is typically not encrypted and can be easily stolen or lost. Unencrypted data can be easily read by anybody with physical access to the media. BlackBox Online Backup encrypts all data with military grade encryption before sending it to our data center. The encrypted data is transmitted to our storage servers via HTTPS encrypted communications channel.
Data cannot be recovered without the encryption key.
Additionally, data recovery can be locked down to a specific IP address for further security.
Traditional backups store the audit logs on the computer which is doing the backups. In the case of a disaster, the logs can be lost and unrecoverable. BlackBox Online Backup keeps a comprehensive audit log as well as emailing detailed reports for every backup and restoration which is performed
Long term archiving of data is difficult and expensive. Data grows exponentially and traditional media is quickly outgrown. Long term retention policies require large amounts of media capacity. BlackBox Online Backup allows you to purchase the storage capacity you require now and pay as you grow for additional storage.
