What is Data Vaulting?

I am frequently asked to define this term which is also called online backup.
Definition according to myself is as follows: Data Vaulting (aka online backup) The process of sending data off-site, where it can be protected from hardware failures, theft, and other threats.
In VAULT400's case, it is performed as a managed service in which the data is compressed and encrypted at every stage and stored at a top tier data centr. Recovery of information can be performed at any time and from anywhere.
