Effective Nov 1st 2023. After careful consideration, we have made the difficult decision to cease operations and shut down the application. In the coming days, as a part of the closure process, BackupSheep is committed to giving back to the community. We will be open-sourcing our application and tools, allowing individuals and organizations to benefit from the technology that powered BackupSheep's services.

As backup as a service (BaaS) provider, we inherently have a high level of data security.

Keeping our customer data secure is paramount.

BackupSheep deploys the best-in-class security

We use industry norms to ensure data security at every step of the backup process.

In-House Development

Our team does development, dev-ops, monitoring and customer support in-house. We don't outsource anything.

Minimum Data Policy

Encryption for Data & Keys

We use the Python cryptography package for Symmetric and Asymmetric encryption used throughout our application.

Industry-standard OAuth 2.0

We use OAuth 2.0 for authorizing user cloud hosting and storage accounts when available.
