A universal open file backup solution that supports all third-party backup packages, St. Bernard’s Open File Manager works in conjunction with Attix5 to successfully back up all corporate data, including mission-critical files that remain open or in use during the backup process. The ability to capture open files effectively eliminates the conventional backup window and enables the 24/7 access to enterprise-wide networks increasingly required by the emerging global economy. Uninterrupted network availability also significantly contributes to increased productivity. Backup Professional is a secure, automated backup system that intelligently backs up critical files to a remote or local storage server, ensuring that all internal and remote corporate data is adequately protected and securely available from any connected computer. Completely automatic, Backup Professional requires no end-user action and makes use of intelligent file selection to automatically protect important files. Should a restore be necessary, Backup Professional has built-in version control, which allows documents to be stored in the state in which they were created. As an extra layer of data protection, all backed up data is stored and transmitted in an industry-leading encrypted format.
