Future Systems Solutions Launches Casper Secure™ Drive Backup 4.0 for Symantec (PGP®) and Windows® BitLocker® Drive Encryption

First and Only Backup Solution Designed for Windows System Disks Encrypted with Symantec (PGP) and Windows BitLocker Drive Encryption

Indianapolis, IN – September 10, 2013 – Future Systems Solutions, Inc. (www.fssdev.com) announces Casper Secure™ Drive Backup 4.0, a major upgrade of the first and only backup solutions designed specifically for PCs using Symantec (PGP) and BitLocker drive encryption technologies.  Providing complete PC backup and recovery, Casper Secure eliminates the security and compliance risks associated with other backup and recovery products.  All data remains in its original encrypted state during and after the backup and recovery processes, thereby maintaining 100% compliance with data security directives and creating no additional work for users or IT. 

Casper Secure backs up everything including the operating system, applications, settings, and all user data.  When a user needs to recover a single file or an entire system, recovery could not be faster or easier. There is complete and immediate access to all of the data on backups; there are no additional passwords or exotic procedures to follow. In addition, a Casper Secure backup can be completely restored in its original encrypted state, avoiding the separate and time-consuming re-encryption steps that are required with other disk imaging and backup solutions.

For added flexibility, Casper Secure gives the user the choice of two kinds of backups:  a fully encrypted, instantly bootable clone or a fully encrypted restore-point image backup.  Both offer numerous advantages for the user. 

A Casper Secure bootable backup can be used as an immediate and permanent replacement for a failed Windows system hard disk.  The user can simply restart the computer to the bootable backup or replace the failed drive with the bootable backup. Either way, users can be up and running again in minutes, eliminating a day or more of unnecessary downtime. 

A Casper Secure restore-point image backup can be stored virtually anywhere, including on a drive containing other files or remotely on a network attached storage device. When a system drive fails, the user has multiple restore points from which to recover.  Innovative SmartRestore™ technology fully automates the data restoration process, ensuring safe, compliant, and hassle free recovery the moment the user selects which backup to restore. Fully encrypted recovery doesn’t get any faster, easier, or more secure.

Casper Secure Drive Backup provides around the clock protection.  Complete system backups can be performed without restarting or interrupting the operation of the PC; and with integrated scheduling and SmartAlert technology, backups can be performed completely unattended.

Casper Secure Drive Backup also makes short work of disk upgrades and replacements by quickly and securely cloning an encrypted hard disk to another disk to increase speed, increase capacity, or replace a failing disk.

New Features Include:

Image File Backups - creates, maintains, and restores complete disk image file backups that maintain the original encryption of the drive and that can be stored virtually anywhere, including on a drive containing other files or remotely on a network attached storage device.

SmartRestore™ Technology - provides easy, one-step support for restoring a system from a backup.

SmartResume™ Technology - provides support for safely resuming an interrupted backup to another disk or image file backup.

Enterprise Scripting and Automation Support - provides scripting and automation support to enable custom interface design, operation and integration within an enterprise.

"By giving users the ability to create restore-point backups, Casper Secure Drive Backup now offers users of disk encryption technology the best of both worlds," said a company spokesman. He continued, "Users can have immediate, encrypted recovery with a bootable backup or choose a specific encrypted restore point backup for fast, one-step recovery.  Either way, users are always 100% compliant with data security and HIPAA requirements throughout the backup and recovery processes.”
