M.Tech introduces BackBox centralised backup and security for network devices
SYDNEY, August 7, 2012. M.Tech Australia, IT security, networking and storage solutions distributor, today announced BackBox, which provides a central location for securing all network device backups, ensuring quick and easy recovery.
The device provides recent, verified backups of firewalls, switches, content filters and load balancers, ensuring that critical infrastructure continues to function correctly.
Paul Lim, Regional Business Manager for M.Tech Australia, said: “When network devices fail, which happens too often, recovery can be difficult and outages costly. Failures come from many sources including hardware, software and operating system malfunctions, as well as misconfigurations, upgrades and high-availability replication.
“In all instances, recovery time needs to be short, and since home-grown scripts are often ineffective and unreliable, network administrators need verified backups in a centralised, secure location. BackBox provides these.”
The device offers a full reporting suite including a live dashboard with real-time status, a detailed backup log, and alerts and notifications.
Mr Lim said: “BackBox ensures compliance by providing a central function for disaster recovery plans. It supports DR planning and execution with the templates and procedures essential for quick and successful recovery.”
The device can be customised with a variety of options and supports automated and scheduled backups, three tiers of administration and web-based management. It features a hardened operating system, internal firewall, encrypted passwords and secure communication with all devices. Scalability ensures that BackBox can handle thousands of devices requiring backup.
BackBox was developed by international security company Safeway Solutions.

I’m dating myself, but I remember when holiday shopping involved pouring through ads in the Sunday paper, placing actual phone calls from tethered land lines to research product stock and availability, and actually driving places to pick things up. Now, holiday shoppers can do all of that from a smartphone or tablet in a few seconds, but there are some security pitfalls to be aware of.
