Data Vaulting

Definition - What does Data Vaulting mean?

Data vaulting is a way to secure data by sending copies of it off-site where it can be protected from theft, hardware failures and other threats. This is often done by organizations with highly sensitive data, which should never be lost. Institutions like banks and insurance firms have some sort of data vaulting scheme in place to prevent data loss.

Techopedia explains Data Vaulting

Periodically, data is automatically backed up to off-site servers using high speed data connections. These servers allow backed up data to be retrieved quickly and easily, ensuring that the organization’s data loss is minimal. Down time is limited to only the time required for the backups to be restored.

The backup data is usually encrypted and compressed. The off-site installation has auxiliary power back up. Additionally, the data vault is often secured with armed guards within the complex.
