”The solution, WebDAV Handy Backup, significantly simplifies of user life,” – said Aleks Dolgushev, the Head of Handy Backup Partners Relations Department. “The WebDAV protocol is utilized by many useful online services. So enabling the WebDav support is naturally what Handy Backup is all about: enriching the range of handy backup options for users.”

WebDAV services (Web-based Distributed Authoring and Versioning) allow users to edit and manage files and folders in a collaborative manner on the Web.
Regarding WebDAV online backup, the new version of Handy Backup can now copy in two directions: backup from WebDAV servers and backup to WebDAV service servers.
Backup from WebDAV server: the main idea of WebDAV is that several people can work on the same project. Therefore, all data included in the work are at great risk of damage or removal due to user error. Handy Backup provides an easy way to automate the backup of WebDAV folders.
Backup to WebDAV folders: network servers are typically located remotely in a secure place. So, copying to WebDAV folders is a nice data protection step, in view of possible hazards that might affect the local media. Plus the backed up data become available for browsing inside a service (for example, Box.com)
Advantages of WebDAV backup:
Access Control: one can allow read and edit WebDAV files a limited number of users, in accordance with the policy of data protection in the organization.
Copying of multiple files: unlike backup to FTP, which at the current time can be transmitted only one file, WebDAV allows you to copy multiple files. This makes it possible to perform several tasks of WebDAV backup on one server.
Secure data transmission: WebDAV is an extension of HTTP, allowing efficient backup using SSL.
