CCIT’s Office of Information Security has recommended CrashPlan, by Code42, as a backup and security solution to help ensure your work is never lost or compromised. Code42 runs automatically, and silently, in the background; continuously protecting the data created and stored on desktops, laptops, and some mobile devices. With Code42, you are able to retrieve lost or deleted files with the click of a button from anywhere, at any time. Licenses will be sold in a one license-to-four device format, meaning that you are able to install the CrashPlan client on four of devices. The cost of a license will be $70 annually. The license year will run from July 1 to June 30. Go to the e-commerce site to purchase your license(s).


At this time, no protected health data can be backed up by this service.


CrashPlan silently backs up every version of every file and self-restores in minutes. One click restores a lost file to the device of your choice—no IT help needed. Access your backed up files anytime, anywhere—on any device—through a secure mobile app. All users’ data is fully encrypted “in transit” and “at rest” and their encryption keys would be stored locally on a server on the Clemson network. Code 42 features the ability for Clemson to delegate to access those keys to assigned users for further security.
