AES - The Advanced Encryption Standard
In cryptography, the Advanced Encryption Standard (AES), a symmetric 128-bit block data encryption technique developed by Belgian cryptographers Joan Daemen and Vincent Rijmen. The U.S. government adopted the algorithm as its encryption technique in October 2000, replacing the DES encryption it used. AES works at multiple network layers simultaneously. The National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) of the U.S. Department of Commerce selected the algorithm, called Rijndael (pronounced Rhine Dahl or Rain Doll), out of a group of five algorithms under consideration, including one called MARS from a large research team at IBM. Now used worldwide it permits data to be encrypted and not accessible and readable unless the appropriate cipher key is made available.
Typically, a copy of your data made for the purpose of preventing data loss in case of failure of the computer hard disk, virus attack, software application conflicts, system hangs or any other unexpected event which may cause data corruption or keep the user from accessing the data.
CDP - Continuous Data Protection
Continuous Data Protection (CDP) is a technical feature on backup products which allow for ongoing backup functionality. CDP also referred to as continuous backup, refers to backing up computer data by saving, as an automated function, a copy every time changes are made to that data. It allows users to restore files that are corrupted or that have been accidentally deleted, back to any point in time before they were lost.
Data Loss Prevention
Category of measures put in place to avoid data loss. These measures may include both hardware and software which are implemented to avoid data loss and discontinuance of activities due to unavailability of critical data.
Incoming mail server: pop3.yourISP.com (an example)
SMTP server address: smtp.yourISP.com (an example)
Computer algorithm which allows an originating or sending computer to “scramble” data making it readable and understandable only by an authorized recipient which has the “unscrambling” code to make the data usable and modifiable by the user. Encryption is recognized today as the most effective way to achieve data security. To read an encrypted file, you must provide a preset key or password that enables you to decrypt it. Unencrypted data is known as plain text; encrypted data is referred to as cipher text.
A 30-day, full feature version of our software application available online at our own web site or at our participating downloadable software partners, enabling users to experience Dmailer Sync, Dmailer Backup or both, during 30 days with no obligation whatsoever.
Although most manufacturers of hard disks and Flash disks define 1 gigabyte as 1,000,000,000 bytes, computer operating systems used by most users usually calculate a gigabyte by dividing the bytes (whether it is disk capacity, file size, or system RAM) by 1,073,741,824.
What does a gigabyte do for you?
a. Allows you to store up to 256 songs (in average a song takes around 4MB)
b. Allows you to store up to 403 pictures (using an average 5Megapix per picture)
Refers to the activation key we provide customers to activate our software application, either Dmailer Sync or Dmailer backup. It’s composed of an alphanumeric key resembling the following: DMA06070509-1DF-54344C5A37.
POP - Abbreviation for Post Office Protocol
Abbreviation for Post Office Protocol, a protocol used to retrieve e-mail from a mail server. Most e-mail applications (sometimes called an e-mail client) use the POP protocol, although some can use the newer IMAP (Internet Message Access Protocol). In Dmailer Sync would show for example as: Incoming mail server: pop3.yourISP.com.
Login account created by the end user which identifies and provides access to that user's specific data set repository and allows for access and portability of the encrypted data.
Secure Data Mobility
The concept of providing both data and mobility in a portable storage device, taking in account the utmost levels of security and privacy users require in today’s digital world. It takes in consideration that data stored in supported mobile storage devices be secured and that access to data is only granted to those who provide the password which allows for “decryption” and use of the data.
SMTP - Abbreviation for Simple Mail Transfer Protocol
A protocol for sending e-mail messages between servers. Today a majority of e-mail systems that send mail over the Internet use SMTP to send messages from one server to another; the messages can then be retrieved with an e-mail client using either POP or IMAP. In addition, SMTP is generally used to send messages from a mail client to a mail server. This is why you need to have this specified, both the POP server and the SMTP server, when you configure your e-mail settings in Dmailer Sync. In Dmailer Sync it will show a dialog box with the following entry: SMTP server address: smtp.yourISP.com.
Sync Ready ®
The ability for a storage device (hard disk, USB flash drive, MicroSD, etc.) to be used with Dmailer’s sync engine for the purpose of securely storing data and maintain data synchronized between the originating computer(s) and the storage device.
Data synchronization technologies are designed to synchronize a single set of data between two or more devices, automatically copying changes back and forth. For example, a user's Outlook contact list on one mobile device can be synchronized with other mobile devices or computers, in Dmailer’s case it allows for computers and a mobile device to perform data synchronization. Data synchronization can be local synchronization where the device and computer are side-by-side and data is transferred or remote synchronization when a user is mobile and the data is synchronized over a mobile network.
USB Flash Drive
Universal Serial Bus Flash Drive. A mobile storage device which has gained popularity today among PC and Mac users due to the simplicity of use and increasing storage capacity. It’s commonly used to transport and/or transfer data, as it used to be in the past with floppy drives and diskettes. Its simplicity and availability of USB ports/connection slots in PCs today make it the perfect device for PC and Mac users to have data mobility.
