AhsayOBM and AhsayACB client backup agents come with the Encryption feature to securely protect users' backup data.


When the Encryption feature is enabled during the creation of a new backup set, you can choose from one of the following three Encryption Type options:


An encryption key with 44 alpha numeric characters will be randomly generated by the system

User password

The encryption key will be the same as the login password of your AhsayOBM at the time when this backup set is created. Please be reminded that if you change the AhsayOBM login password later, the encryption keys of the backup sets previously created with this encryption type will remain unchanged.


You can customize your encryption key, where you can set your own algorithm, encryption key, method and key length.

Save Encryption Key

After setting up the Encryption type, the following pop-up window will show, no matter which encryption type you have selected.

Unmask encryption key

The encryption key is masked by default. Click this option to show the encryption key.

Copy to clipboard

Click to copy the encryption key, then you can paste it in another application (e.g. Notepad in Windows, Evernote, etc.) for saving it elsewhere.
