Your data is secure with SqlBak

The safety of our customers’ data is always our priority above any of the features we have. We are constantly working on security improvements here at SqlBak. And the only data that is ultimately secure is the data that you never had in the first place. That is why we do not to send, nor store your SQL Server credentials on sqlbak.com at all. This means that your server login and password will never leave your computer. This change will be especially welcomed by organizations whose privacy policy does not allow passing SQL server login and password to any third-party websites.

Little reminder about how the SqlBak works: it consist of a lightweight app that has to be installed on the same computer where the SQL Server is and a web portion (sqlbak.com) where you configure & monitor backups, see backup history, restore databases, run scripts and monitor the server (see demo)

When you install the SqlBak app after entering the Secret Key you’re asked to connect to a SQL Server:

SqlBak Client Configuration - Connect to SQL Server

After you type your user name and password into this window they are encrypted and stored locally on the same computer and are never sent to sqlbak.com 

If later you need to change the server’s connection settings or add another SQL Server you would need to do it on your SqlBak app:

SqlBak Client Configuration - Connection Created

And now the only thing you need to do when you configure a backup job on sqlbak.com is to select the name of previously connected SQL Server (if you have only one server connected then it will be selected automatically):
SqlBak Dashboard New Job Creation
