We at Dimofinf have made security one of our main priorities:
- We've secured the data.
- We've maintained a high security standard to ensure the stability of our services and our clients' data.

Dimofinf Backup service, one of Dimofinf's projects, is moving on that track.

Secure data center:
All of our servers work inside one of several data centers distributed in some of the American states:
- Dallas
- Los Angeles
- Chicago

All servers work inside a data center that is totally equipped to operate Internet servers. The data center contains:
- All security tools.
- Temperature control.
- High Internet speeds.
- Servers and data center monitoring using specialized cameras.

Secure network:
All Dimofinf servers operate on a network equipped with Cisco equipment; like routers and switches and other equipment. It is constantly maintained and monitored remotely all year long.

Monitoring servers:
All Dimofinf servers are remotely monitored using the monitoring systems at Dimofinf. Each server and its services are monitored using specialized systems. Any emerging issue is directly handled by the operating systems engineers at Dimofinf.

Special protocol:
One of Dimofinf's features as a backup service is that it provides a special program that gets installed on the server that will be backed up. This program enables communication between the client's server and Dimofinf Backup servers. The client program uses a special protocol that doesn't overlap with other protocols like FTP or SFTP etc...

Connection encryption:
At DimofinfBS, we've provided strong methods to completely encrypt the connection during backup and restore operations between the client's server and DimofinfBS' servers. This blocks intruders when they try to hack the connection between the client's server and DimofinfBS' servers

Limited accessibility between the client's server and Dimofinf Backup  servers:
One of the strongest points that distinguishes Dimofinf Backup service from other backup services:
- Limited accessibility between the client's server and Dimofinf Backup  servers.
- No need to exchange passwords between the client's server and Dimofinf Backup servers to execute backup and restore operations.
- No way to harm any of the backups or harm the Dimofinf Backup server from any of the clients' servers.
- No way to access and view other clients' data.
- If a breach occurs from a client's server, there's no way it can harm the backups available at Dimofinf Backup service.

Users limited accessibility:
Dimofinf provides a mechanism to create users that can access Dimofinf Backup service GUI and control the available backups, modify the settings or execute restore operations. Each user has limited accessibility privileges that can be configured by the administrator or whoever is responsible for managing the backups. That way, you can provide your employees special memberships so that they can execute restore operations only when needed, or according to the granted privileges.

One of the tools available at Dimofinf Backup serviceis a web control interface.
This interface allows the client to do the following:
Complete control over preparing and timing backups.
Executing backup and restore operations and scheduling them easily.
Viewing all operations that have been executed or are being executed.




Sometimes you might urgently need to restore your files or one of them.

At Dimofinf Backup service, we've provided the following through a web interface:
Ability to browse files, folders and partitions that have been backed up.
Specify what to restore.
Restoring the files to their original location or to a different one.

This feature is available to control panels users. They can execute restore operations using this method.

General restore (or restore as a whole unit) is known as Bare-metal restore (BMR). It is the main component of the Dimofinf Backup service. (a backup is made for all of the partition or the hard disk. That way, it can be totally restored.)

One of the features requested by whoever wants to backup his data and servers is:
- Controlling when the backup is executed:
At Dimofinf, we have provided complete control over the time at which operations are executed. Just schedule the operation and let it run automatically on time!
Times for executing backups:
- Each second!
- Each hour
- Each day
- Each week
- Each month

And there are more features:
- Ability to specify a specific hour while you're modifying the scheduling options.
- Deactivate or activate a scheduled task.

In case of daily scheduled backups, don't you think you might someday want to rollback to yesterday's backup?
Restore points give you this feature. We've made it available in Dimofinf Backup service.

You can specify restore points for each schedule. For example:
You can schedule daily backups with restore points each 2 or 3 days.

Dimofinf Backup service is running with RAID-10 technology on all of our hard disks. RAID-10 provides high consistency along with high reading and writing speeds.

In Dimofinf Backup service, we provide high encryption using Blowfish Cipher and RSA keys along with a password. The following occurs:
All data on hard disks are encrypted - with optional compression.
Encryption occurs on the client's server.
Data is sent to Dimofinf Backup service server where it will be hosted.

That way, the data pass through the network in an encrypted, unviewable form. It gets completely encrypted on Dimofinf Backup service servers. There's no way to know its contents through Dimofinf server except for whoever has a privilege to access the server's account. He only will be able to access the data. When the restore is executed, the data also gets restored in a totally encrypted form and gets decrypted on the client's server.

Archived extraction enables you to extract a specific part of your data as a file or a group of files compressed as a TAR. You can download it to your machine after its compression completes. All of this is done easily through the DimofinfBS GUI.

Sometimes you might want to schedule restoring some files to a time when you're not available on the Internet.
Dimofinf Backup service provides a feature to specify files to be restored and the day and time of the restoration.
