Strengthen Your Data Protection Strategy with Parablu BaaS

A secure and reliable
cloud based backup

Why Parablu BaaS (Back up as a Service)?

A sound backup strategy should be a critical part of every organization’s Information Technology plan. Backups can not only help recover data from accidental losses, but they also serve to keep businesses regulatorily compliant, protect against insider threats, and prove to be an invaluable defense against Ransomware.

Parablu BaaS (Backup-as-a-Service) makes it easy for a business of any size to adopt a full-featured, enterprise-class backup, that is fully hosted and managed in the cloud. A solution that takes pesky infrastructure headaches off your hands and works like clockwork each day. Backed by our patented technology, Parablu BaaS even integrates with your existing Microsoft 365 and Google Workspace subscriptions to reduce your backup storage costs to ZERO!

Getting onboarded is a piece of cake. Zero implementation effort. Less than an hour of one-time configuration, deploy our agent on your endpoints – and you’ll be on your way! And you stay in complete control at all times with a dedicated, centralized web-based portal.

A Quick Overview of Parablu’s Backup as a Service Solutions

Avoid the complexity of infrastructure management – compute provisioning, disk partitioning, security sign-offs, firewall settings, change requests – and all of that. Let the Parablu team handle everything for you in the cloud. All you need to do is deploy the BluVault backup agent on your business endpoints. You can do this one-time using a mass deployment tool like SCCM, AD GPO or any other tool of your choice.  And that’s it. The agent auto-updates itself after that.

Safely back up endpoint data to your existing OneDrive for Business storage allocations

The Parablu Advantage

Back up to any storage

Unlike other SaaS based backups, we will not tie you down to our storage in AWS.  While we’re happy to provision our cloud storage for you, our BaaS has been designed to be storage agnostic and allows backup to any cloud storage target you may have.  Choose from Microsoft OneDrive/Azure, Google Drive/GCP, Amazon S3, IBM SoftLayer, and several others.

End-to-End Encryption

Parablu’s BaaS applies industrial-strength encryption on backup data streams, both during transit and at rest.  With end-to-end encryption, you can be assured that your data is safe wherever it’s stored and all along the way.

Zero Storage Cost

Parablu’s patented integration with individual user storage allocations like OneDrive and Google Drive means that you can accomplish backups without moving the needle on your storage costs. This could mean as much as 70% savings on Total Cost of Ownership (TCO) when using our BaaS as opposed to any other solution.

BluKrypt™ Assurance

Parablu BaaS is powered by BluKrypt™, our proprietary, patented privacy enhancement technology that enables a secure storage container in which all backup data is shredded, encrypted, and versioned. It is an unbelievably high bar to scale for a potential attacker and is designed to provide our customers with unparalleled data protection.

Zero-Knowledge Privacy

Parablu’s BaaS is built on the tenet of Zero-Knowledge Privacy which is designed to ensure that your data can be accessed by you and no one else – not the cloud vendor, not Parablu, not a regulatory authority, or a foreign government. Only you.

Zero-Trust Security

BaaS is designed for modern security and will seamlessly fit into your Zero Trust Security model. All data flows on secure channels, using TLS 1.2 with strong ciphers. You will only need to allow port 443 – no other holes we’ll ask you to punch through your firewall. We integrate with Identity Managers like Azure Active Directory and Okta, augmented with multi-factor authentication protection. Parablu’s solutions embody the principle of least privilege at every level of our stack.

Bespoke BaaS

We understand that your world isn’t black and white.  If you need to transition from an on-premise set up to BaaS – we’ll work with you. You can use BaaS with a combination of our on-cloud workloads, combined with some on-premise workloads. We are unique in offering this option to customers – which we call Bespoke BaaS. 

Strengthen your data protection and management strategy while saving costs

Parablu’s BaaS ensures privacy, confidentiality, and security of digital assets no matter where they reside – whether in a public, private, or hybrid cloud. Apart from the concept of a secure storage container, Parablu’s unique and patented technology enables integration with end-user storage subscriptions like MS OneDrive for Business and Google Drive can drive your storage cost down to ZERO and dramatically lower the total cost of ownership for backup.
