The user software has a familiar interface which makes it easy to use for all skill levels. Email notification sends you and us a backup report following each backup. This report indicates the number of files that were backed up, their names and locations, how long the backup took, the number of megabytes used, etc. We look at this information daily to assess the completeness of your backup. If we see a potential problem, we will contact you to try and correct it.

The Service
IST's Online Backup service provides a totally invisible mode of operation that silently backs up data at scheduled intervals without interrupting your daily work...keeping assets protected and your time productive. Combined with FastBIT incremental change backup technology (which reduces repeat file backup sizes up to 95%), bandwidth and resources used are kept to a minimum. Every customers' data is stored securely encrypted on an IST server with super secure 448-bit blowfish encryption. IST will gather a "data profile" from you to better understand what kind of data you want to protect. We will use this profile to interpret the daily logs we receive from your backup software to make sure we're getting the files you have intended to back up.

The Team
IST's Online Center is powered by the latest, high performance computer technology connected to an expandable storage system that can easily handle the needs of hundreds of customers. Our servers are connected to a high speed Internet connection that provides plenty of bandwidth to allow each user to backup their data. All of our servers are backed up daily in triplicate. Comprehensive monitoring ensures that our services are available to all customers around the clock. In the event of power failure, battery backup can keep our entire service running without skipping a beat.
