Asustor ramps up its cloud backup service with IDrive integration

16 Aug 2017

Asustor is integrating all of its NAS (network-attached storage) devices with IDrive’s online cloud backup service.

The network storage company claims its new Asustor NAS devices provide users with a secure and comprehensive online backup solution that utilises IDrive’s military grade AES 256-bit encryption. to help protect and manage files while syncing and sharing those files.

The enhanced devices' new features include an array of data backup and restoration functions, such as Asustor​ Backup Plan (ABP).

According to Asustor, ABP allows users to backup data from their computer to their NAS, initiate local backup to MyArchive disks, and integrate with many cloud backup services such as Amazon S3, Google Drive, and Microsoft OneDrive.

James Su, product manager at Asustor comments, “The protection and security of our users’ data is our number one priority at Asustor. We have made great efforts to provide all of our users with a sense of security through our data backup and restoration functions.”

Su says by integrating with IDrive and allowing users to easily schedule regular backups of their priceless data to their NAS or public cloud storage space, the company has become more competitive,

Matthew Harvey, senior business development manager at IDrive, states "We are excited to bring our IDrive NAS app to Asustor​ customers.”

“With our combination of security, affordability and the ability to backup multiple devices, Asustor​ customers can have their critical data protected locally with Asustor​ and in the cloud with IDrive.”

Founded in August 2011, Asustor’s portfolio spans private cloud storage and video surveillance solutions as well as integrated firmware, hardware and applications. Asustor was created from direct investment from Asustek Computer, a Taiwanese hardware and electronics company. 

IDrive, based in California, specialises in cloud storage, online backup and remote access solutions.
