Remote Backup


WANSecurity RBACK is a service that provides an online system for remotely backing up important data. Remote backup data is transferred with 2048 bit DSA encryption stored on an AES encrypted filesystem. Even someone with physical access to the machine and disks would not be able to access secured customer data. Each customers' data is stored on their own individual filesystem, each with it's own encryption key. RBACK is currently available for all recent versions of OS X, Unix, Linux, and POSIX based operating systems including Microsoft Windows Server and Desktop products.

Secure your data in multiple locations!

  • Free of natural disasters
  • 2048 bit DSA encryption data transfer
  • 256 bit on-disk encryption

Data is stored off-site at remote locations. If a natural disaster were to destroy one of our data-centers. Your data is still safe and secure at one of our other locations.

Features and Usability


Automatic or

Tell WANSEC when to perform your backups. Automatic is the simplest method in which backups are performed while your computer is not in use. Scheduled backups can be performed daily or weekly at a specified time of day.


Saves bandwidth and ensures continuous backups are fast.

Bandwidth throttling

WANSEC sets QoS and ToS on all RBACK facilities to ensure that proper bandwidth is always available for all customers.

Client Support

Unix, Linux and POSIX based operating systems use our slightly modified version of RSYNC. Using RSYNC helps provide almost continuous data protection (CDP) by backing up only changed bytes. For Microsoft based systems we support Symantec Backup Exec and System Restore (BESR). We do not current support live Oracle, and DB2 DB instances. We are looking at different options to support live instances and will make those available when they are ready and have been fully tested.

Online Access to Files

The registered administration contact subscribing to the RBACK service has online access to backup and archive data 24 hours a day 7 days a week. This allows for fast retrieval of important data from the backup archives via any web browser or operating system supporting DAV, or WebDAV. Customers using WANSecurity OpenSecure IPSEC and Dialup VPN services can retrieve files via AFP (Apple File Print) or SMB/CIFS (Windows Network Drive).

Monitoring and Notifications

RBACK customers can register free-of-charge to receive emails alerts when no backup data has been received after a specified period of time. This features helps our customers to identify when proper backups are not taking place as scheduled.

Remote Backup Locations

All US based RBACK customer's data is mirrored at both the Kansas City and Los Angeles datacenters. Additional options include global mirroring for data backup to our datacenter in Tokyo Japan.
