Online Backup For Bookkeepers And Accountants

Keep Financial Data In Canada

Financials and their supporting documents are the lifeblood of any company or organization.

As an accountant or bookkeeper you want to ensure that in the event of a disaster that data is safe, secure, and backed up online. You understand Canada’s security and privacy laws, it must be kept in Canada.

Our Advanced Backup lets you perform Canadian based online backups with military grade security and PIPEDA compliance.

 

How It Works

Our online backups are software based and can be installed on your server, desktop or laptop that holds the financial data and documents.

Once configured, financial data and documents are encrypted and securely transmitted to our Canadian based backup servers on the schedule you set.

Backups run in the background and are light enough that you can use the computer while a backup is being performed.

You receive an email notification after every backup run so that you can confirm the backup was successful and you data is online and secure.

Why Backup In Canada?

Backing up your files in the U.S. (did you know most providers keep your data there?) means they are subject to the Patriot Act and other American security and privacy laws.

If you put your backup data in the US, according to the January 2012 Cloud Computing Report by the Law Society of British Columbia, there are over 10,000 US-based government agencies that could get access to your data without a warrant.

You don’t want that  – keep your online backup under Canadian security and privacy laws in a PIPEDA compliant data center.
