What would happen if a business lost all its data?
Downtime after data loss costs the average business over $8,000 per
day. Unfortunately, most businesses and remote offices with less than
100 employees backup with antiquated tape systems that are
subject to human error, cumbersome, and notoriously unreliable. The
facts tell more:
•
•
•
Over 30% of IT costs are associated with backup;
On average 20% of nightly tape-based backup jobs fail1;
and
40% of dedicated, full-time IT Managers can’t recover data
from their tape backups2
As the value, complexity, and volume of business data increases,
traditional fixed-schedule backup to tape or disk no longer provides
adequate data protection. In addition to these challenges,
traditional backup methods can not accommodate laptop and
other mobile data that moves between home, business trips,
partners, and clients.
Businesses and remote offices deserve the same robust backup,
recovery, and data availability solutions as large enterprises.
Eliminate the Threats of Data Loss
Specifically developed for the business and remote office network,
Lasso CDP provides real-time continuous data protection for servers,
laptops, and PCs - both locally and offsite.
Lasso CDP is a zero-touch, hassle-free data protection solution that
backs up data as changes occur and replicates them first locally
and then to a secure offsite location. This real-time data protection
guarantees the most current file and system backup possible. By
combining the advantages of local disk-based backup (fast
recovery) with offsite backup (insurance against local disasters),
Lasso CDP is the first solution to eliminate (not just mitigate) exposure
to threats of data loss.
As importantly, Lasso CDP is available to remote employees,
partners, and clients by policies the IT administrator establishes using
the same security technology implemented by major financial and
government institutions.

Continuous Data Protection
Product Features
Continuous Data Protection: Lasso CDP replicates data in real-time, capturing all new, changed and deleted
information at any point in time. There are no backup windows to that leave data exposed to data loss – a
serious risk that exists with most other backup solutions. Lasso CDP’s continuous data protection works even
when users are on their laptops working remotely.
Offsite Backup: Offsite backup protects businesses against power
surges, theft, server crashes, viruses and other disasters. Unlike
cumbersome tape or CD processes, Lasso CDP provides handsfree offsite backup to a secure data center, to a business’ remote
office or other third-party site. Lasso CDP’s intelligent and
proprietary Adaptive Backup Engine (ABE) monitors and
recognizes a business’ Internet usage patterns so that it may
complete offsite backups only when network usage is at its lowest.
Instant Recovery and Unlimited File Versions: Lasso CDP saves every version of every file, not just the latest
version. Therefore, any user on the network can instantly retrieve previous versions of a document, even after
they have saved over it. Users can go back to any point in time – minutes, hours, days or more!
Security: Data is secured by the same 128-bit secure socket layer (SSL) encryption technologies implemented
by major financial institutions and government agencies. Lasso CDP also utilizes public-key encryption and
digital certificates as an additional layer of protection. Finally, every Lasso CDP customer has secure email
address & password authentication.
Remote Access: Remote access is included for travelers, telecommuters and anyone who works while they’re
away from the office. Lasso CDP enables users to have instant and secure access to their data. Using any
Internet-enabled device, users can login at www.lassologic.com and gain access to their local data.
File Sharing: Share folders and files with an unlimited number of partners, clients, employees and peers. Network
administrators are able to name specific areas of the Lasso CDP that each user has access to when they login
using individualized IDs and passwords.
Intelligent Applications: Lasso CDP integrates a collection of intelligent software applications on top of its ABE.
One such application is a backup reporting tool, which provides constant visual data backup verification. The
tool places a highlighted Lasso stamp on each protected file so the user knows that the backup system is
working. Plans include another intelligent application – remote administration – as a simple-to-operate webbased management interface that enables Lasso CDP to be configured and managed remotely.
Application Support: Lasso CDP supports most business applications including Microsoft Exchange, SQL Server
ACT!, Goldmine, QuickBooks, Peachtree, Outlook, and Outlook Express, as well as most industry specific
applications. It also supports open files, Microsoft Small Business Server, and other database packages including
Microsoft Access, DBASE, and MYSQL.
HIPAA Compliant: By combining the advantages of real-time local disk-based backup (fast recovery) with
offsite backup (insurance against local disasters), Lasso CDP is the first solution to eliminate (not just mitigate)
exposure to HIPAA infringement. HIPAA requires that healthcare records be maintained for six (6) years.
Unfortunately, tapes degrade more than 40% during the first five years.

Simple to Install, Simple to Administer
Lasso CDP has three components: Lasso CDP
Appliance, a client application, and a client
agent
•
Lasso CDP Appliance
Lasso CDP is the dedicated backup
appliance will enabling all the features and
functions included with the product
•
Client Application
If the administrator wants to provide backup
capability to a user on the network, the client
application is installed on the users PC. Lasso
CDP can be centrally administered or
configured from each workstation. Installation
of this application is optional on each client
•
Client Agent
The client agent is a system service searching
for file and database changes on the client (a
server, PC, or laptop). The agent takes less
than 2 MM of memory and has no impact on
the client or network
Lasso CDP’s admin panel provides the administrator capability to
central manage backups, and allows individual users capability to
simply recover their own files.
