EMC-managed data centers are in North America and Europe. By default, backups are routed to the appropriate data center
based on the IP address; however, customers can specify which region they want their users directed to via a client installation
switch or via a sub-partner setting in the Mozy Admin Console. This ensures that it’s possible to comply with local datahandling laws and principles.
8. What is the MozyPro standard retention period?

9. What encryption capability does Mozy support?
Backup and sync data is encrypted locally with industry-standard encryption prior to transfer, during transfer, and while at rest
in the EMC cloud. Multiple encryption key options provide added security. MozyPro provides two data encryption ciphers and
two encryption models:
•• Managed key: 448-bit blowfish; Mozy assigns an encryption key to your users. This key is stored and managed by Mozy.
•• Personal key: 256-bit AES; the user enters a passphrase that is used to create the encryption key. Each user creates a unique
personal encryption key.
Corporate encryption key: 256-bit AES; the administrator enters a passphrase that is used to create the encryption key. You
can create a key for all users in the company or a unique one for each user group.
10. Can partners run MozyPro from their own data center?
