The following security measures have been approved by the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) as a U.S. Federal Information Processing Standard (FIPS) and are applied to the DATVAT data backup services to protect your information as it is transmitted and stored on our servers.
Blowfish Encryption Algorithm - The Blowfish Cipher offers high-level security and features unbreakable keys for application security.
Triple Data Encryption Algorithm (TDEA) – Applies three cipher algorithms to each data block, rendering keys nearly impenetrable for increased application security.
True 192-Bit Security Socket Layer (SGC/SSL) – Server Gated Cryptography, a feature most notably associated with Symantec’s VeriSign, is the most powerful SSL encryption commercially available, and is over a trillion times a trillion stronger than other certificates available. It would require nearly one trillion years to break into a session protected by SGC-enabled applications making internet commerce and communication impervious to threat of breach.
256-Bit Advanced Encryption Standard (AES) – Adopted by the United States Federal government, and now used worldwide, it supersedes DES and uses the same key for encrypting and decrypting data. It is approved by the National Security Agency (NSA) for protection of top secret information.
512-Bit Secure Hash Algorithm (SHA-2) – Designed by the National Security Agency (NSA), SHA-2 offers both 256 and 512-Bit encryption with 64-Byte words and varying block sizes.
