How can Backblaze protect my government data from ransomware?

Backblaze B2 Cloud Storage supports object lock in coordination with many of our integration partners, including MSP360, Veeam, Catalogic, and more. Object lock prevents your data from being deleted, encrypted, or modified for the length of time you set. It takes literally one click to enable object lock on your B2 bucket.

Can Backblaze help us support our HIPAA compliance requirement?

 Backblaze is compliance friendly, with the ability to provide Business Associate Agreements (BAAs) for entities covered under HIPAA.

How does Backblaze compare to AWS?

Backblaze is S3 compatible hot storage at cold storage pricing—it’s one-fifth the price of AWS S3 standard storage class and features free downloads (egress) up to 3x your data stored. And, unlike Glacier or other cold storage services, you’re able to access your data immediately without paying an added premium.

What additional fees should I expect?

Backblaze has no hidden fees. There is only one tier of hot storage with free download up to 3x your data stored and there is no minimum storage duration requirement, no minimum file size requirement, and no charge for using Object Lock for ransomware protection.

How do I integrate Backblaze with my current backup software?

Backblaze easily integrates with its S3 compatible API. You simply create an application key in the Backblaze web application and then add Backblaze B2 as a storage destination in your backup software.
