Article Summary

CTERA Drive Protect enables you to back up files to the CTERA Portal global file system in the cloud, which provides cloud-based backup, restore, and disaster recovery.

Cloud backup offers:
Security – In addition to using AES encrypted TLS (Transport Level Security) connections, the same security mechanism used by banks, all of your data is encrypted using 256-bit AES encryption to ensure that your data is protected against eavesdroppers. For even stronger security, you can use a secret passphrase. If you use a secret passphrase, your data will not be readable by anyone or any entity (including administrators) without knowledge of your secret passphrase.
Versioning – Cloud backup preserves multiple versions of your data, enabling you to restore the version of your choice.
Restore Options – When using traditional backup, you must have access to the backup medium, in order to restore your data. In contrast, cloud backup offers multiple restore options, including restoring your data from anywhere by downloading it from the cloud backup site.

Note

Files on removable media, such as a USB drive, cannot be backed up using the CTERA Agent.
