Protect your data from
ransomware & hackers
With an emergence of ransomware actively targeting schools and universities in the UK, it’s crucial that you have a secure offsite backup solution in place to protect everyone’s information. We’ve made protecting your data simple with various backup solutions that are immutable and cannot be infected with ransomware. We also adhere to the latest Ofsted, National Cyber Security Centre (NCSC) and government guidelines.

“BackupVault have been excellent at meeting our needs of providing a backup service that complies with our Law Society Professional Rules. Many of the service providers will not tell you where the data is held and for our line of business, it has to be kept in the UK. They were very efficient at installing the backup and did regular checks on the system to ensure that backups continued successfully.”
“Our data is critical, and with BackupVault I have peace of mind knowing that in the event of a catastrophe my data is safe, secure and easily retrievable. Back-ups are stored online on UK based Servers and both the backup and restore procedures and fast and easy to use. The level of help and services is also second to none. Whenever I have had any queries, the response has been very fast, helpful and productive.”
“The difficulty with any backup system is that you only know if it works when you REALLY need it to work. We had only been using BackupVault a few months when, due to a hard disk failure on our live network, we needed to access a backup of a small file. The BackupVault system worked perfectly for us, and we recovered the file with no stress in just a few minutes.”
“Being secure in the knowledge that all our data is backed up daily off site is a huge comfort to us and as has been recently shown works superbly when our system crashed in the office and you were able to restore all our information remotely and we were back up and running in no time at all. Your swift and efficient response time enabled us to continue working without any loss of service to our clients – who could ask for more.”
