How secure is the backup?

BountySite stores all data on industry standard AES 256 bit encryption. The backup FTP credentials are stored on backup nodes which can be communicated only over SSL REST API. Credentials are encrypted using AES 256 in database, and database is stored over encrypted storage, using AES 256 bit encryption. Redundant Backup (including S3) is also encrypted using AES 256, at rest, and uploaded using https(encryption at transit). We recommend using FTPS(default mode) instead of FTP for encryption on control and data channel, for backup. 

The reliability of backup depends on storage. Since BountySite offers high level of customized solutions for every budget, it depends on the underlying backup storage server. The details are clearly provided while subscribing for the service.
