The Rutter managed backup service offers several features that provide maximum security when backing up and archiving data. Files are first packaged to ensure that bandwidth is minimized during transmission. The data is then encrypted (transformed from plain text into nonsensical cipher text) using a unique 256-bit encryption key to ensure that files cannot be accessed by others. For added security, each encrypted file is sent over the Internet via a secure channel, and then stored in SSAE-16 certified secure data centers located in the U.S. It includes multiple safeguards to prevent denial of service attacks or portal hacking, and our cloud architecture is built to protect against outside threats. Data in our cloud is stored as generic objects that can only be decrypted and reassembled by our customers' agent, preventing our data centers from being exploited.


The Rutter managed backup service leverages technology designed to ensure our partners enjoy a high level of data availability. If even the slightest irregularity in data at rest within a particular data center is detected, it will immediately replace this data with the verified copy stored in our other location.

Virtual Data Protection with Hyper-V Backup Support

The Rutter managed backup service provides our customers with a native plugin that allows you to back up any number of Hyper-V VMs on a single host to the cloud, local vault, or both, using a single agent. You can store an unlimited number of historical versions of each VM with the same level of granularity you can expect from other backup types. VMs are stored encrypted and compressed, and protected VMs are guaranteed a consistent backup. You can also customize automated backup scheduling and define long-term archiving rules. Recovering protected VMs is simple and flexible. You can select any number of VMs to restore as well as any revision. When recovered, each VM is contained in its own folder in the chosen directory, and the files within each folder maintain the file structure established prior to backup.

Microsoft Exchange Plugin

The Rutter managed backup service gives you the power to back up Microsoft Exchange 2000, Exchange 2003, Exchange 2007, Exchange 2010, and Exchange 2013. With Exchange, you can perform both full and incremental backups, whatever you prefer.

Multiple Revisions

Rutter allows you the ability to store an unlimited number of versions of the same file. If you have certain files or databases that are updated every day or every week, you can always go back to a previous version if you need to. Go back a day, or even a year if you would like!

Logs and Reports

The reports that we provide show you what was backed up and when. With detailed statistics and information about each file that is backed up or restored, you never have to wonder if your backups really worked.

Location of Backups

Customer's files are secured using 256-bit AES encryption and a private encryption key. SSL technology is used in data transmission. This assures that data is protected both onsite and over the Internet. Data is stored in two, SSAE 16 Type II compliant datacenters (Somerville, LA/ East & West Coast) with redundant storage and biometric security. This helps prevent the loss of data in the event of a natural or man-made disaster such as fire or theft
