Your backups are optimally protected: Your data is transmitted to the server in encrypted form and stored in the IONOS high-performance data center in encrypted form. Due to the compression method used for data transmission, the compression rate can be up to 90%, depending on the file type.

The IONOS Backup Manager uses AES-256 as its default encryption method. The following encryption methods are also supported:

  • AES-128

  • Blowfish-448

Decrypting your data is only possible with an encryption password that is known only to you.
