Schools and universities often maintain elaborate, specialized networks to connect their staff to the many terabytes of research data and other digital assets they’ve compiled. Having a remote backup of that data is often a strict policy due to federal regulations such as HIPAA and Sarbanes-Oxley and with EVS, IT departments can build applications that fit their institutions specific needs using easy-to-implement APIs.

Faculty and staff can safeguard files with IDrive’s built-in private encryption key options which allows subscribers to protect their data with a user-defined phrase and with anytime/anywhere access to stored files via the web or mobile devices users are never left without their information at hand.

Some important features to note for students and teachers:

  • Access documents and files from any PC, Mac, iOS or Android device
  • Share files/folders with others, collaborate on presentations
  • Files are always encrypted and private key encryption is available for maximum security
  • Unlimited file retention and 30 past versions available for restore (versions are stored free)
  • Continuous Data Protection for real-time backup of schoolwork, never lose a paragraph
  • Top-notch network performance on the EVS cloud
  • Live 24-hour support

IDrive is available for home and server editions of Windows and Mac OS X and for mobile devices in the Apple App Store and Android Market.
