Redstor, a managed services and IT solutions company, has announced the launch of its new backup and security service, Redstor Protector.

Specially designed for the education market this service secures and protects confidential and sensitive information held on PCs and laptops in the event of data loss or theft.

Redstor Protector provides the comprehensive data protection and recovery solution for PC and laptop data. The solution complies and exceeds Data Protection Legislation and Becta Guidelines, which dictate that sensitive and confidential information, likely to cause damage or distress to individuals, should be protected.

Redstor Protector backs up device data from PCs and laptops and saves the data automatically to an online backup account. This allows the recovery of data anytime from anywhere in the event of data loss – provided the device is connected to the internet. If an incident occurs and data is lost or stolen, Redstor Protector has a unique shredding function that can remotely delete data even if the device is offline.

Additional features include state-of-the-art award winning encryption software capable of securing data with 256-bit AES encryption by using randomly generated keys for maximum security and privacy. The software is extremely user friendly and easy to manage; it’s cost effective and will protect data at all times with minimum support levels.

The Redstor Protector solution will be sold through Local Authorities (LAs) and Education Service Providers. Customers will be able to take advantage of the LAs’ industry experience and knowledge as well as Redstor’s reputation and experience in providing reliable and relevant services at competitive prices, such as Redstor Backup Service for Schools (RBUSS) and CentraStage (remote device management), used by over 12,000 schools and 75 service providers throughout the UK.
