Real Estate

The Canadian Real Estate market is certainly experiencing a boom. Locations such as Vancouver and Toronto are quickly becoming hotbeds for foreign investments. New, large-scale developments are being announced every day and it seems the trend is likely to continue.

However, Real Estate agencies typically don’t have space, equipment, and expertise to properly manage a server. That is when a cloud-based storage solution works best.

Canadian Cloud Backup also provides full access to all of your data over a web front end, giving you even more access to your backed up files.

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 (Listings, Financing documents, etc.) 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.
