Canadian Educational Institutions
The amount of data an educational facility generates continues to grow at an accelerated pace. With this growth, traditional methods of data backup (tape, CD/DVD, flash drive, external HDD) are becoming too slow and ultimately obsolete and as a result, many schools are making the switch to a cloud-based backup.
Since educational facilities are required by law to keep certain records available for extended periods of time it is imperative that said data be accessible, available, intact and secure.
Canadian Cloud Backup specializes in providing Canadian Learning Institution’s custom backup solutions that are PIPEDA and HIPAA compliant ensuring full legal compliance and your data always stays in Canada.
With a cloud-based solution, opportunities for growth and flexibility are everywhere:
- Precisely managed I.T. budget
- Reduced hardware maintenance
- Reduced chance of data loss
- Maximize physical space at the facility by removing legacy hardware
- Easy collaboration between faculty and students
- Prompt availability of data
- Automatic backups let you focus on what is important
Data Security and Compliance
Canadian Cloud Backup is both HIPAA and PIPEDA compliant.
Canadian Cloud Backup uses a three-tier encryption process. First, data is encrypted on the device using a military-grade, 256-bit AES encryption before ever being sent out. Once encrypted, data is sent over 128-bit Secure Sockets Layer (SSL). Once arriving at the cloud, it is then encrypted once again in 256-bit AES. Data is only ever created, received or transmitted when encrypted.
Canadian Cloud Backup’s Ultrasafe™ allows users with highly sensitive information to store their data securely such that no one, including Canadian Cloud Backup’s engineers, will be able to access their data.
Data Center and Transfer
Canadian Cloud Backup utilizes 100% Canadian data centers. We have also partnered with Peer1 to utilize a data center in Toronto. View information regarding our data centers. Furthermore, data during transit is never routed outside of the borders of Canada.
Canadian Cloud Backup (being HIPAA/PIPEDA compliant), can also be used to store the records (Student Transcripts, Course Documentation, Contracts, Worker Agreements) offsite to reduce the possibility of irreplaceable records being permanently lost. Should a disaster strike, you can restore all of your data quick and easy and get back to what’s important.
