Synology Inc. today announced the launch of its newest Synology C2 cloud application. C2 Backup provides a backup solution and efficient data protection for Windows devices, whether they are located at home or distributed across multiple offices.
Yen-ju Lin, Product Manager for C2 Backup at Synology Inc. said,
With C2 Backup, we provide a fresh alternative for those who want to centralize the protection of their devices, wherever they are. It is easy to set up and use and requires no additional hardware to protect Windows devices, allowing users to start backing up today.

 

Centralized data protection

With C2 Backup For Individuals and C2 Backup For Businesses, everything on Windows PCs and servers can be securely and efficiently backed up from a single console. This includes system configurations and software, files and folders, and external drives. Data backed up on C2 Backup is fully shielded against unauthorized access by end-to-end AES-256 encryption, with a user-held private key necessary to unlock backup files and sensitive information.
 

Flexible ways to schedule backups

C2 Backup makes use of forever-incremental backup to optimise storage and bandwidth. Each user can set his/her own individual version retention preferences. Retention policies can be tailored to meet individual needs or comply with corporate policies and regulations. Users can also choose to periodically execute backup tasks, or can let them be triggered by events such as screen locking, account logout, or device power-up.

Fast and full restoration options

In the event of device failure, data loss, or ransomware attacks, C2 Backup's fast recovery methods allow users to quickly resume services. File-level recovery allows immediate retrieval of any file, while entire devices can be restored to their previous state with bare-metal recovery.
