Data Protection Software

Definition - What does Data Protection Software mean?

Data protection software enables timely, reliable and secure backup of data from a host device to destination device. It is designed to provide data backup, integrity and security for data backups that are in motion or at rest.

Data protection software is similar to data backup software. However, the former focuses on data integrity, privacy, availability and security, whereas the latter focuses on creating and managing backup copies.

Data protection software ensures data integrity by verify the original and backup files through hash algorithms, which encrypt secure data in transit and at rest and ensure timely and instant retrieval, as required.

Data protection software for enterprise provides a centralized management interface and reporting of backup success and failures, as well as other backup specific abnormalities, such as network latency.
