options provide added security.
MozyEnterprise provides two data encryption ciphers and three encryption models:
•• Managed encryption key: 448-bit blowfish; Mozy assigns an encryption key to your users. This key is stored and managed
by Mozy.
Personal encryption 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.
6. Can I use MozyEnterprise to back up remote and branch offices?
Yes. MozyEnterprise is particularly suitable for the smaller server workloads at remote and branch offices. With MozyEnterprise, one
central administrator can manage the backups for the entire remote or branch office from a single web-based console. In addition,
the MozyEnterprise primary administrator can create subadministrators to manage backups at remote and branch offices. All files
are encrypted, providing a secure offsite copy of business-critical data.
7. Can I customize backup configurations with MozyEnterprise?
Yes. MozyEnterprise gives you the flexibility to set policies on bandwidth usage and backup speeds, create customized backup sets,
or define which file types should be backed up. With MozyEnterprise, you can configure your backups to run at specific times of day,
including after business hours, to eliminate resource strain and costly manual oversight. Back up automatically or schedule your
backups daily, weekly, or even multiple times a day. MozyEnterprise ensures that your server databases and business files are backed
up and are easily accessible. Should you need to restore data, MozyEnterprise backs up all the elements you need to do a restore.
The standard retention period for backed up data is 90 days.
8. When I back up with MozyEnterprise, where is my data stored?
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 data-handling laws
and principles.
9. Can partners run MozyEnterprise from their own data center?
No. Mozy by EMC is a fully hosted, fully managed public cloud service. EMC data centers employ the highest protection standards,
including state-of-the-art security with 24x7x365 onsite monitoring, fire detection and suppression systems, and redundant power
distribution units.
