ALDA Endorsement

ALDA endorses shadowSafe

The Alabama Dental Association (ALDA) has given its exclusive endorsement of vitalEsafe, Inc.’s shadowSafe backup and disaster recovery service to its members. Following the ALDA’s due diligence process, ALDA awards the endorsement to products and services that help members achieve operational excellence and have a proven track record.
Taking and maintaining up to date on-site and off-site backups of an entire dental office’s patient data, digital x-rays, intra-oral camera pictures, accounting information, and other vital information is both technically challenging and time consuming. shadowSafe backup and disaster recovery is a fully managed service that provides subscribed offices with the following unique set of benefits:

  • Complete (100%) copy of the office’s entire computer (or computers)
  • Daily backups maintained for at least a full year
  • Backup copies of all information are stored both onsite and offsite
  • Exceeds HIPAA requirements for security and accessibility
  • Nothing to purchase (all hardware and software included in the subscription)
  • Backups run completely unattended in background without interruption
  • True disaster recovery means that backups can be restored to an empty and/or different computer when required
  • Fully managed backup with daily monitoring of backups/uploads

Dental practices with properly implemented backup and disaster recovery procedures are in a vastly better position to recover from both catastrophic (fire, tornado, theft) and non-catastrophic events (hardware and software failures, virus/malware infections, user mistakes) than those without protection. In addition, HIPAA requirements for both high levels of security to protect patient information and rapid accessibility to patient information after a disaster are difficult for most offices to achieve on their own.”
