Unlimited Hosts and Backup Retention

The LokkBox solution offers you the most flexibility for your backup needs. Your subscription entitles you to an amount of storage space that you specify. You are then able to use that storage as you see fit. We don't charge for additional hosts and you are free to retain your data as long as you'd like provided you have adequate storage.


Microsoft Windows Bare Metal Recovery

Our solution allows you to conduct a complete bare metal backup and restore of your Microsoft Windows systems. If you experience a total system failure of a server or workstation, bare metal recovery allows you to restore an image of the computer with your pre-installed software and settings. Bare metal restores can be performed on completely different hardware than the original machine.


Continuous Data Protection

Continuous Data Protection (CDP) allows you to capture a backup of every new version of a file written to your hard drive. Even if you experience a hard drive failure before your regularly scheduled backup job runs, your recent work will still be stored on the LokkBox servers.

CDP allows for a highly dependable means of real-time data protection on any of your devices without the need for scheduled jobs or human intervention.


256-bit Security Encryption

All of your data is compressed and encrypted using 256-bit security before being delivered to our servers. Your LokkBox Online Backup Manager password serves as your encryption key and can be changed at any time. All encryption takes place on your local server and encryption keys are never transmitted as part of your backup job. Transmission of your data to the LokkBox servers is done over 128-bit encrypted SSL links.

Decryption of your data is only possible using the encryption key so no one will ever have access to your data but you; not even us.


Seed-Load and In-File Delta Technology

If you don't have the time or bandwidth to upload your initial backup to our servers, we offer a seed-load service that allows you to send an initial backup on a portable hard disk which is then loaded into our servers. Then, all of your subsequent backups utilize our in-file delta technology.

With in-file delta, the original file is backed up once as part of your initial backup job. Subsequent backups only include changes made to your files. The illustration below shows a typical daily backup process with a 500GB initial load and 5GB daily incremental backups.

Seed Load and In File Delta Technology Included

Open Files Backup

You can backup open files without the need for any special applications or plug-ins. Our open file technology includes support for Microsoft Outlook and Microsoft Outlook Express so that you can backup files like *.pst, *.dbx, and *.wab without any disruption to your users.

No special configuration is necessary - simply tell the software which files you'd like to backup and we will take care of the rest.

Automatic Upgrades

Our product employs auto-upgrade technology so that you automatically get the latest release of our software. You don't need to spend time downloading and installing new clients. Instead, our software will check for updates and install them for you automatically.
