15 INFORMATION TECHNOLOGY SERVICES TSC Client Management Client settings are the settings applied to UTBackup client computers. Client settings can be created for individual orgs, child orgs, or computers. Client settings are inherited from the parent organization, unless explicitly blocked. No explicit file selection or include/exclude filters set by default. Client settings can set to read-only from the admin console

16 INFORMATION TECHNOLOGY SERVICES File Restore Procedures Client files can be restored in two ways: UTBackup client application No size limit/fastest method Can restore to original file locations Admin Console Default 250mb restore limit Slower than client (WebDAV) No client application necessary TSCs can restore org users files via console

UTBackup has been analyzed by the ISO and has received approval for transmitting and storing CAT I data. 448 bit Blowfish encryption over the wire and at rest Admin console accessed via HTTPS/SSL Client Security Settings By default, clients use the standard archive encryption key (Level 1) Can assign personal password to encryption key (Level 2) Can replace default encryption key with personal encryption key (Level 3)

19 INFORMATION TECHNOLOGY SERVICES Other Issues and Considerations Data retention settings By default, files are deleted from backup archive 30 days after deletion from backup set Network Settings Initial client seeding should occur on a wired, campus network Open file backup Generally supported, however, some frequently modified files can be problematic.
