Cambridge, MA (PRWEB) March 31, 2014
Recognizing the explosive growth of cloud applications throughout the enterprise, Backupify, the leading provider of cloud-to-cloud backup and recovery solutions for Software as a Service (SaaS) applications, will significantly increase the number of enterprise cloud applications it supports this year. Cloud applications slated for release in 2014 include Box, Dropbox, NetSuite, GitHub, Zendesk, Concur, ServiceNow, JIRA, Asana, Egnyte, Office 365, and Basecamp.
The additional cloud applications will join Google Apps, Salesforce.com, PipelineDeals, and Smartsheet on a consolidated Backupify platform designed to securely protect data in the cloud. Companies will be able to simply and intuitively log-in to a single platform in order to back up and manage the data they store across multiple SaaS applications.
According to a February 2014 Forrester Research, Inc. report Back Up Your Critical Cloud Data Before Its Too Late by Rachel Dines, SaaS is an increasingly popular method of deploying new services, but many organizations dont realize that they could be at risk of losing critical data. Many SaaS providers will not restore lost data for users or will only do so for an exorbitant fee. The report went on to say, As more critical data is deployed in the cloud, its time for Infrastructure and Operations leaders to be proactive and invest in mitigating these risks instead of waiting for data loss to occur.
Backupifys powerful, enterprise-grade platform will help accelerate the number of cloud applications supported. With a set of open APIs anyone can create a backup for a cloud application quickly and easily.
We know companies are rapidly moving to the cloud and migrating critical company information into cloud applications, said Rob May, CEO, Backupify. With that exponential growth, customers are increasingly thinking less in terms of any one single application — they want a single pane of glass in order to more efficiently and effectively protect all their data across a growing number of different applications. Were responding to our customers needs by taking a more integrated approach to managing their data.
As a Backupify customer, we back up the data in both our Google Apps and Salesforce.com accounts, said Ed Quinn, IT Manager, Mevion Medical Systems. Since we use quite a few cloud applications, were thrilled with Backupifys broader vision. The companys emphasis on security best practices as well as their overall innovation means weve found a cloud-to-cloud backup vendor we can trust and partner with
