Code42 CrashPlan is a solid, off-site back up solution, designed for enterprise, which automatically ensures all your data is secure, always. It offers on-demand scalability with contained maintenance costs, whilst all data is encrypted and securely backed up to CrashPlan central.
With Code42 CrashPlan, your firm can protect end-user data in a single repository. The platform allows you to view the most important information about your back ups at a glance, including when the next back up is scheduled, how much is left, when the last back up was completed and how much data was included in the process.
Code42's data centers all comply with strict security standards and conform to industry best practices for power redundancy, and cooling & protection symptoms. Code42 CrashPlan uses 448-bit Blowfish encryption to ensure your data is always as secure as possible. The data is transferred to Code42 servers using standard 128-bit Advanced Encryption Standard (AES) protocol. Users files are encrypted before they leave the computer and then transferred to Code42 securely.
If ’lost’ files need to be recovered, any authorized user is able to retrieve the data. Users simply open CrashPlan and select the files or folders they need to restore. The back up settings can be adjusted with highly flexible, fine-grained controls.
Automatic BackupsIt doesn’t matter what OS your business uses, Code42 CrashPlan protects every version of every file on laptops and desktops running Windows, Linux and Mac OS X. There are no limits on the types, sizes, or numbers of files that an organization, or indeed an individual employee, is able to protect.
Code42 CrashPlan backs up data automatically; there is no need to continually configure the process. This ensures that you are able to retain complete access to every version of every file that you have created. The service also gives you access to deleted files.
Self-Healing ArchivesWith Code42 CrashPlan in place, you never have to worry about the integrity of your data backups and whether they can be utilized any time you need them. Code42 CrashPlan is able to run regular health checks of all backup archives.
A very useful aspect of Code42 CrashPlan is that it automatically checks for data corruption, and in the event that unusable blocks of data are discovered, the app will re-request the affected data blocks from the source device, to begin self-healing the archive. These self-healing archives run without any interference from the end-user at all.
Real-Time ReportingAnother great feature of Code42 CrashPlan is its real-time reporting tools that enable users to visually monitor the health of their data systems at any given time. Users are able to view backups, licensing, and storage 24/7. If a data breach does ever happen to occur, or some form of ransomware is discovered, then automated alerts and notifications are sent from the Code42 admin console.
IntegrationsCode42 CrashPlan has seamless integration with Splunk Cloud. Splunk Cloud is an enterprise solution for data analytics monitoring and visualization. It affords users added functionality for reporting and analytics, and server and endpoint data monitoring. Code42 CrashPlan also offers an open API.
