What is Secure Remote Backup?

Secure Remote Backup is the simplest and most secure system providing offsite backup of data held on servers, workstations and laptops. Secure Remote Backups protect millions of files for schools and businesses by ensuring data is automatically saved to our secure offsite backup storage centre on a daily basis. The data is then mirrored online to a separate secure data centre for added protection. We can easily recover the data to your system in the event of loss or disaster recovery.



Who are we?

The secure remote data backup service is provided by ICT Educational Services (IES). Established in 2004 and based in London, IES provides ICT support and advice to a varied clientele of educational establishments across London and the Home Counties. These include primary, secondary, pupil referral units, nursery and special needs schools. Further details can be found on our website


Do you need Secure Remote Backup?

Secure offsite data backup is an essential element of any disaster recovery strategy. Most schools and businesses rely solely on tape backups that are performed as and when a tape is inserted. Have you considered what happens if there is a fire, flood or theft and the tapes are destroyed or lost? Are the existing backups monitored and data on the tapes checked? In our experience we have seen backup tapes inserted and replaced without any data being written to the tapes!

Check your tape backup and contact us for advice.
