Managing, monitoring and supporting your data

Managed backup services as part of a comprehensive managed hosting solution

Our Managed Backup solution includes the maintenance of backup schedules and sets, troubleshooting of warnings and errors and the proactive testing of the restore process. This combination of services ensures that all data that should be protected, is protected.

We configure all aspects of your backup delivery, providing feedback on data found to be unprotected, advising when problems occur and managing the capacity of the backup service by ensuring storage limits are never reached. Should a recovery operation be required then you just send a simple request to Pulsant support and we do the hard work of finding the appropriate backup set, triggering the restore process and verifying the result.

Secure Backup as a Service

NIST FIPS 140-2 validated encryption that helps you achieve compliance with regulations such as HIPAA, SOX, and the European Data Protection Directives.

Agentless technology – unlike agent based solutions that need you to open multiple ports in your firewall for backup and recovery, and exposes your infrastructure to the risk of attacks from malicious software, Asigra powered solutions need a minimum number of ports to be opened for cloud backup and recovery operations.

Data Centres Secure UK Based Data Centre Facilities

All of your backup data is stored in one of our 10 inter-connected UK datacentres which are ISO 27001, ISO 14001 and ISO 9001 accredited. Pulsant are only one of two companies globally to have been awarded the BSI CSA Star accreditation for cloud security. Highly resilient datacentres that give you the peace of mind that your data is in safe hands.

We can easily replicate backup data across our inter-connected datacentres for customers who require further backup reassurance or security and compliance demands.

Reliable Backup as a Service

Recovery and restore assurance as standard – over 20 recovery checks that go far beyond basic one-time CRC checks. These checks ensure that your data is always recoverable, whenever to wherever.

Features include autonomic healing and validation restore that proactively check if the data is recoverable. If not, the service will attempt to remedy the situation to ensure recoverability. Supported by 24/7/365 real time monitoring and dedicated engineers.

Manageable backups

Our agentless solution means a reduced presence of agents within your network, meaning less overheads on your production machines and easier patch and upgrade procedures. We believe that less is indeed more when it comes to managing IT environments.

Automation ensures that backup jobs once set up can run by themselves without needing any human intervention.
