CrashPlan Now Approved for FERPA Data – Pre-Approval Required

If you are approved to save FERPA information to your laptop or desktop, CrashPlan is now approved to back up that data.*

Using 448-bit file encryption with minute-by-minute backups, department data is secure and ready to restore in the event of a crash or accidental deletion.

Other CrashPlan features include:

  • Unlimited online storage
  • Mac and Windows availability
  • Real-time dashboard reporting
  • Mobile app file viewing
  • Web browser file restore
  • Online, email and phone support

*NOTE: Pre-approval is REQUIRED to store FERPA information to a laptop, desktop or other individual user device which can then become part of your CrashPlan backup.  HIPAA and other sensitive data should be stored on Piratedrive rather than a user’s work device.  ECU policy states that credit card information should never be stored anywhere on ECU’s network.

For more information regarding the storage and use of sensitive data, please visit www.ecu.edu/itcs/itsecurity/sensitive-data.cfm.
