SQL Backup Pro adds Integrity Checking

SQL Backup Pro adds Integrity Checking

Run database integrity checks as part of a scheduled restore job.

SQL Backup Pro creates smaller, safer, faster backups of SQL Server databases. Backups are compressed, reducing storage space and hardware requirements (often known as "database zip"), they are created in less time than native backups and are securely encrypted. Native SQL Server backups are essentially just a dump of data stored in SQL Server .mdf and .ldf files. This is an inefficient and insecure way of storing backup data as it is stored unencrypted, unprotected and uncompressed.
