Meeting the Special Needs of Medical Professionals

In 1996 the US Congress enacted the Health Insurance Portability and Accounting Act, known as HIPAA. Part of HIPAA establishes national security and privacy standards regarding patient records and data that is being stored digitally. Here's a few other reasons IBackup works well for the medical industry:

-- IBackup encodes data with 256-bit AES encryption prior to copying files over the Internet
-- Protect Microsoft Exchange, SQL, SharePoint and Oracle server databases at no extra charge
-- Unlimited file retention with the last 30 versions of each file held at no extra charge
-- Backup an unlimited number of machines with one plan -- Windows and Mac compatible
-- Easily pull up backup and access reports for audits

IBackup for Certified Public Accountants, Banking and Financial Institutions

Companies dealing with sensitive financial records are often required to meet certain security and reporting regulations as well. The Sarbanes-Oxley and Gramm-Leach-Bliley acts, the Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) and the National Association of Securities Dealers (NASD) all impact the methods organizations use to backup and store their mission critical data.

Including the above mentioned reasons, here's a few others that show how IBackup assists accounting firms with their requirements:

-- Set up Automatic Selection for easy backup of specific file types i.e. Money, QuickBooks or TurboTax documents
-- IBackup can backup most common file types while they're in use without interruption

-- Share any folder/file with anyone using their email address
-- For large initial backups customers can use IBackup's Rapid Serve program to physically ship their data -- this can potentially be
quicker than backing up over the Internet

Public APIs for Custom Application Development

EVS was built to be faster, easier to secure and more affordable than other cloud platforms such as Amazon S3, Rackspace and others. Using EVS, developers can create solutions for medical scanning equipment, network attached storage devices and others that interact with and store large amounts of data in the cloud.

-- As low as $9.95/month for 100 GBs of storage and no bandwidth fees
-- Efficient and built-in 256-bit AES encryption with the option for a private user key for maximized privacy
