We are excited to announce our Backupify for Google Apps Spring Release (even though our local Boston weather refuses to accommodate our theme). This release is blooming with updates across all plans (Professional, Enterprise and Enterprise +) with increased restore & export functionality, enhanced security and unlimited storage.
This release is timely, as articles about the risks of moving data to the cloud and using BYOD highlight the need for a backup strategy. In addition, Symantec’s report entitled “Avoiding the Hidden Costs of the Cloud”, confirms these risks finding in their survey of 3,000+ companies that over 40% of businesses using SaaS have experienced data loss.
Backupify’s Spring Release focuses on the needs of large organizations, with new features including:
Full Domain Export allows administrators to download a full copy of their domain data, for a nominal fee. Whether responding to eDiscovery requests or satisfying internal requirements with an on-premise copy, the full domain export is a simple way to have your entire domain exported in a consumable format.
Configurable Data Retention provides administrators with the ability to set a customized email retention period. This feature allows customers to respond to specific legal retention requirements or internal archiving policies.
Batch Import of Users gives administrators the flexibility to upload groups of users they want backed up – for example: by Organizational Unit (OU). This feature makes is easy to deploy Backupify for Google Apps across large organizations, and simplifies ongoing user management.
Restore and Export Folder Hierarchy allows users to keep their organizational structure intact when restoring or exporting an entire account.
Google Sites Restore gives both end-users and administrators the ability to restore items back to their Google Sites accounts quickly and easily.
Unlimited Storage on all per-user accounts enables our customers to scale their protection as the data in their Google Apps accounts grow. We also created FreeSpace to help manage Gmail inboxes as they reach google’s strict 25GB storage limit.
SSAE/SOC2 Type I audit certifies that Backupify adheres to the AICPA Service Organization Control Trust Services Principles, Criteria, and Illustrations for security, availability, processing integrity, confidentiality, and privacy. This audit report provides all of our customers the peace of mind that Backupify is always striving for the highest standards in security.
Our Spring Release emphasizes Backupify’s commitment to building the leading Enterprise SaaS backup as measured by security, reliability and functionality. As always, we welcome feedback from our customers to identify what should be in our next release.
