Data protection and security

Data Protection

Cubit Estimating Cloud comes with managed antivirus with real-time protection, nightly scans and daily snapshots with offline retention for complete ransomware protection.

Daily backups and disaster recovery.

Cubit Estimating Cloud offers a valuable feature of daily snapshots for your virtual machines. This means that every day, a backup of your virtual machines is taken, ensuring that you have a recent copy of your data.

Backups are retained for 7 days. This means that even if you realise there is an issue or data loss a few days after it occurred, you can still access the relevant backup and restore your virtual machines accordingly.

Data is stored in secure off-site locations, reducing the risk of data loss due to hardware failures, natural disasters, or other unforeseen events. This ensures business continuity and minimizes downtime.

Every virtual machine comes with its own isolated private network with no incoming port open. Firewalls and private networks between virtual machines can be configured from the management console. All public IPs have anti-DDoS protection included and connections to your office resources are made using site-to-site IPsec VPNs.


Connections to the Cloud desktops using the web app are encrypted using SSL HTTPS. Connections from the desktop application are made using RDP over SSH tunnelling.
