Accountants are in the business of processing electronic data. This data contains some of their client’s most confidential information. The ability to safeguard the handling and storage and possible recovery of this data is essential to the practice’s operation and survivability. In addition, the Sarbanes Oxley Act of 2002, (SOX) has created specific data archival and storage requirements.


For years firms have been using backup tapes to backup their data. These devices create very serious security concerns since most tapes are transported and stored in an unencrypted format. In addition, their limited life expectancy is sometimes lower than the SOX requirements which make them unreliable. These devices are also easy-to-steal, easy-to-forget, easy-to-erase and easy-to-damage. Blue Light IT backup solutions remove the human element from the backup operations. The software is intuitive, automatic, and easy to use. All backup data is always compressed and encrypted with 128-bit TwoFish technology and the only encryption key is maintained by the client’s designated officer. The designated officer received messages regarding completed backup operations. Data is saved in a hurricane proof data center and easy to recover to any location with internet access.
