BluVault and Amazon Web Services

Parablu’s data resiliency solutions can help you make the most of your AWS subscription. Host Parablu’s BluVault or BluSync™ on AWS EC2 instances you control and use AWS S3 buckets as a secure backup vault. Parablu’s patented technology has the ability to create safe, encrypted, private vaults within your AWS S3 buckets and store your data in an encrypted, shredded, and immutable form, safe from threats like ransomware.

The Parablu Advantage

Leverage your AWS subscription

Unlike other backup solutions, we will box you into our cloud infrastructure. While we’re happy to provide you with our Backup-as-a-Service offering, our solution has been designed to be infrastructure agnostic and allows you to deploy on your AWS infrastructure and backup to your S3 storage.

End-to-End Encryption

BluVault 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.

Reduced Storage Cost

BluVault uses compression and de-duplication techniques to store only ‘incremental’ data on backups – thus optimizing storage utilization. The longer your run BluVault and more incremental backups that occur, the greater the savings. 

BluKrypt™ Assurance

Parablu 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. Each data shred is encrypted separately creating a veritable data jigsaw. 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 solutions are built on the tenet of Zero-Knowledge Privacy which is based on strong encryption combined with a strict enforcement of segregation of duties. It is designed to ensure that your data can be accessed by your organization and no one else – not the cloud vendor, not Parablu, not a regulatory authority, or a foreign government. Only your organization.

Zero-Trust Security

Parablu seamlessly fits into your Zero-Trust security model. All data flows on secure channels using at least TLS 1.2 with strong ciphers. Data transfers are all on https and use port 443. You will need no other ports to be punched through your firewall. Parablu integrates with identity managers like Active Directory, Azure Active Directory and Okta, augmented with multi-factor authentication and brute force password protection and embodies the principle of least privilege at every level of technology stack.

Key Features

Any file, any folder

Automated data backup with no restrictions on file sizes, names, types, whether the files are in use or not. And yes, that includes PST files which are tethered to Outlook.

Full and incremental backup

An initial full backup, followed up by incremental backups, forever, to ensure sensitive utilization of network and storage.

Policy-based management

Manage backup and restore behavior using simple policies that allow you to control a range of parameters – from backup schedules, folders or file types to include/exclude, number of versions to keep, storage quotas – you name it.   

De-duplication and compression

Data compression combined with smart, variable length block-level de-duplication that starts right at the source, designed to save valuable network bandwidth and storage space. 

Self-service Interface

Empowers users with the flexibility to choose what to backup, set privacy options, discover how protected their files are, and perform their own restores.

Partial file transfer

Smart algorithms to take apart large files, identify only the parts that have changed, and just back those up.

Enterprise audit trail

Reports that keep you up-to-date at all times, and audit logs that cover all critical touchpoints.

Litigation hold

Assign special data protection policies to identified users/devices for all legal and litigation hold requirements.

Network and CPU Throttling

Control the impact of the Parablu agent on the endpoint by adjusting CPU usage levels and implement flow-control using the network throttling feature.

File versions

Preserve multiple file versions and control the aging/retention of file versions based on policy.

Identity Manager Integration

Integrate with enterprise namespaces, such as Active Directory Azure Active Directory, and Okta for authentication, Single Sign-on, and to provision or de-provision users.

Secure sharing

Leverage policy-based data sharing with password protection, read-only access, two-factor authentication, and self-destructing links.

Higher data security, privacy, and confidentiality

Parablu’s secure storage container applies powerful encryption on the backup data and enforces a strict separation of duties along with capabilities such as file and folder name obfuscation and data shredding to offer a significantly higher level of protection to your enterprise data.

The Benefits

Regulatory Compliance and Governance

Parablu helps achieve regulatory compliance for regulations such as SOX, HIPAA, GDPR, and others that have strict requirements around data protection and retention. Satisfy “right to be forgotten” requests and easily achieve data-locality by leveraging BluVault’s built-in GDPR features. Take advantage of ready-to-use reports and audit logs to prove compliance to internal audit, an external auditor, or a regulatory authority.

Protect data from Ransomware

Security experts are now in concurrence that the best defense against a ransomware attack is a reliable backup. Parablu is designed to protect you from ransomware attacks by ensuring that a copy of your data is always available to you – safe and secure – so you don’t need to negotiate with the attacker. Simply restore your data and be the master of your own destiny. Parablu also allows administrators to rewind the clock and go back to perform a point-in-time restore, from BEFORE a ransomware attack.
