Product Quick Facts
Founded in 2005 in Seattle, AltDrive is a cloud-based software that provides unlimited and secure online file backup for home users and small businesses. The company was founded by an engineer with an expansive background in data management, information assurance, backup storage, and security.
AltDrive automatically protects and stores an unlimited amount of important photos, documents, videos, emails, and other documents. The software program seamlessly backs up Windows XP, Vista, 7, 8, WHS, Linux and Intel-based Mac computers without limiting the upload speed, file size, or file selection. It encrypts files before it leaves the computer, and transfers the compressed files with SSL security to a secure off-site facility. AltDrive also includes customizable features such as filter selections and schedule creation so as to organize backups according to the users’ preferences.
Without capping bandwidth or setting file size limitations, AltDrive offers unlimited document backup at an affordable cost for individual and business use. It allows the designated administrator to manage subaccounts for all employees and servers. A duplicate copy of files is stored on a separate hardware device as a form of extra protection. It provides a secure and simple approach to data management, storage, and encryption.
