How Backupify Uses OAuth to Protect Your Data

What do National Geographic, Evernote, Mashable and Crate & Barrel all have in common? They’re just a handful of the 10,000 plus companies that trust their SaaS data with Backupify.

The security of your data is our number-one priority, as is evident from our purpose-built cloud, data controls, advanced internal controls, and compliance with standards including SOC 2 Type II, and HIPAA. In addition to our various compliances, we also have SOC 2 Type II at the infrastructure level to further guarantee the safety of your data.

Another security feature is the use of OAuth-based authentication. This means we never have your credentials stored, and we only access your account on your behalf.

Some of the ways OAuth helps keep your data secure:

  • Your credentials are kept to you and you only, removing any doubt of safety. The use of OAuth tokens allows us to securely authenticate to our customers’ accounts without actually having access to your account. With OAuth, Backupify only requests specific access to complete tasks on our end and does not require access otherwise.
  • Revoking access: All you have to do is simply disable or revoke access. With some competitors, each user must change their passwords individually.

When you’re evaluating cloud backup solutions, one of the most important things is to consider is how secure your critical data is going to be. That’s why you look at solutions like Google, Salesforce, O365 because these companies have the infrastructure to protect you. When you’re looking for a backup vendor, you want that vendor to have the same level of security as your primary solution.
