CodeGuard works behind the scenes. Which means you can turn it on and sit back while CodeGuard takes regular backups of your data.
Since CodeGuard is cloud-based, setting it up is a snap – simply add your website connection details to start the backup process.
CodeGuard lets you restore your website from any previous version saved in the repository.
Peace of mind is just clicks away, our CodeGuard service backups your websites regardless of where they are hosted.
Connect your website to CodeGuard using your SFTP/MySQL information. Once connected, an initial backup will start automatically.
CodeGuard automatically monitors your website's files & databases for changes, performs backups and notifies you by email.
Restore your website's files & database to any previous backup version by downloading a zip file, performing an automatic restore or restoring individual files.
CodeGuard is a solution that automatically monitors and backs up your website and database. Once it detects a change, CodeGuard creates an automatic backup and then sends you a mail about the changes on your site.
CodeGuard’s systems perform at 99.9% levels, which means that roughly 1 out of 1,000 websites encounters an issue on a daily basis. Hosting providers perform maintenance on servers, customers change FTP login credentials, and IP whitelisting settings for database connections can change, based upon hosting provider server admin activity. These are common behaviors and not cause for concern, as CodeGuard determines the root cause for the lack of connectivity, and emails the customer so they can remediate.
CodeGuard relies upon industry best practices to protect customers’ data. All backups and passwords are encrypted, secure connections (SFTP/SSH/SSL) are utilized if possible, and annual vulnerability testing is conducted by an independent agency. To-date, there has not been a data breach or successful hack or attack upon CodeGuard.
Backups are stored on Amazon Web Services Simple Storage System, known as S3. S3 boasts object durability levels of 99.999999999%, achieved by storing redundant copies of data across multiple geographies and facilities. S3 is not the cheapest alternative for data storage, but it is one of the most reliable.
Our data stored on Amazon Web Services (AWS) is stored utilizing Server Side Encryption (SSE). AWS handles key management and key protection for us, with one of the strongest block ciphers available, 256-bit Advanced Encryption Standard (AES-256).
Not necessarily. Hosting companies tend to keep your backups in the same place as your primary files. You don’t carry around a copy of your birth certificate along with the actual one – you keep the real one safe at home for emergencies. So why not do the same for your backups? CodeGuard provides safe, offsite backup that is 100% independent from your hosting provider.
But don’t just take our word for it – there are plenty of folks who agree.
“The back-up systems of most web-services providers leave a lot to be desired. The back-ups sound reassuring in theory – you are assured that your data is always ‘backed-up’ on a system that is completely separate from the main one … But then, when you dig, you often discover that that means the data is simply copied to another file on the same box or another box in the same data room.” – Business Insider, 4/28/11
