Backup for Schools

Schools, academies, colleges and universities are hubs of constant digital activity. They are responsible for substantial amounts of data, making the need for secure backup for schools increasingly important. Sensitive student information, personal details, education materials, audit and compliance information and financial records are just a few examples of data, critical to the day-to-day business as usual for education institutions.

With the emergence of ransomware actively targeting schools and universities in the UK, it is imperative you have a secure, offsite backup solution in place. BackupVault is also one of the few GDPR compliant backup providers.

BackupVault appreciates that you and your staff don’t have the time and often the know-how, to consider backing up data on your server network, or across each school-owned PC and Laptop. We have considered this within our cloud backup solutions for schools to ensure that it is as easy and as clear as possible, without compromising on security.

As an educational establishment, you must ensure that your data is backed up securely and offsite, complying to government legislation. BackupVault delivers you the perfect solution. Our cloud, online backup service secures your encrypted data within our UK based, state-of-the-art data centres. Off-site backup ensures your data is safeguarded from fire, flood, theft, user error and viruses like ransomware. It is also the only Capita approved method of backing up your SIMS, FMS and Discover databases.

BackupVault is a leading provider of online backup for schools, academies, colleges and universities in the UK. By using BackupVault you can rest assured that your data is secure, easily accessible and in-line with the most recent government legislation.

SFVS Compliant Backup

In 2015, the Schools Financial Value Standard (SVFS) was updated to include specific backup requirements for schools. Schools must now backup their critical data off-site daily to protect school IT systems. BackupVault is fully compliant with SFVS, making it a safe and secure option for school backup solutions.

We have been very pleased with the reliability and product support from BackupVault and would strongly recommend them to anyone considering an alternative to the more costly main stream backup providers.”
Aaron O’Leary
AGC Accountants
“BackupVault provides an exceptional all round service. On the times we required technical support during the initial set up of the software they were extremely helpful. It’s nice to be able to speak to someone immediately at any time. The software works very efficiently & we don’t really notice the daily backups. ”
Jonathan Pearson
“As a chartered surveyor, the data held on our office servers is critical to the running of the business and a requirement to comply with the Royal Institution of Chartered Surveyors standards. BackupVault’s dual UK based servers, daily backup and encryption of our data gives me peace of mind. I now no longer need to worry about the daily backup – it simply works. ”
Graham Beeson
Beeson Weeks
“I have always wanted efficient and strong backup that works in spite of me rather than because of me. I tried the free on-line software and it constantly clashed with my security software. I tried BackupVault and it ticks every box. Backup happens in spite of me every day. If I need to recover data from my backups it happens quickly and efficiently. If I have a problem, it gets resolved quickly because I am dealing with a UK-based company. I now have the complete peace of mind that comes with knowing that if my computer crashes, my only problem is replacing the hardware and software because the data is protected and easily and quickly recovered. ”
