  • Encrypted for Transit: All user data is encrypted locally with military-grade encryption prior to transfer.
  • Easy to Access: Supports a range of devices and operating systems.

Data Shuttles

IGate Africa can send you an external storage device for faster initial backup of large amounts of data. Copy your files and return the drive to us, and we’ll upload it locally in our data center.

Incremental Backups

Once the initial backup is complete, our service only backs up new or changed portions of files, making subsequent backups lightning fast.


Automatic or Scheduled Online Backups: Set the service to back up automatically or according to a schedule you choose.

Custom Configurations: Set policies on bandwidth usage and backup speeds, create custom backup sets, and refine what file types should be backed up.

Reliable Data Restores: Browse and search your backed up files, then restore file versions up to 90 days in the past. Files may be restored via the software client, over the web, by using our mobile device App, or by ordering a DVD restore.

Local Backup: Windows users can back up locally to an external device as well as online for double protection by using the 2X protection option.

World-class Data Centers: Data is stored in state-of-the-art data centers, which employ the highest security standards.
