Backupify Winter Release 2012 Launches with Additional IT Control Features for Enterprises on Google Apps

Improvements to Industry's Most Comprehensive Backup for Cloud Application Data Accelerates Customer Growth

CAMBRIDGE, Mass., Dec. 12, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Backupify, the leading provider of online backup services for cloud application data, today launched "Backupify Winter Release 2012," the new version of its backup and recovery solution for enterprises using Google Apps. Designed to better meet the needs of larger organizations that have more complex internal structures, legal requirements and subdomains, Backupify for Google Apps now provides customers with a strong set of administrative control features and a centralized interface for managing their business-critical data stored in the cloud.

The Winter Release delivers on Backupify's promise of incorporating new features based on customer feedback during the initial launch of the Enterprise Edition of Backupify for Google Apps in August. With larger organizations receiving automated backups three times per day, Backupify has remained committed to providing enterprise-level organizations with the industry's most trustworthy and comprehensive backup and restore solution.

"This year Google Apps in the enterprise space has reached new heights and we'll continue to see enterprise-level organizations migrating to the cloud in increasing numbers," said Rob May, CEO and co-founder of Backupify.  "Larger organizations like the Museum of Modern Art, the Financial Times, Jawbone, Park Hotels and Auberge Resorts, and leading academic institutions like Berklee College of Music and Rice University trust Backupify to safeguard their Google Apps data. As we work with these organizations to ensure they always have a secure second copy of their data, we've developed better tools that give more control to the administrator while managing multiple sets of daily backups."

Backupify for Google Apps now includes the following advanced data management and admin controls for enterprise organizations:

Multiple Administrator Management provides enterprise organizations with multiple administrators across different departments, business lines and locations with a central portal to manage a Backupify account. Now, a company can empower multiple Backupify Administrators to easily and securely add users, or initiate a restore or export on behalf of their end users.

Audit Logs provide a comprehensive audit log, which allows administrators to monitor all actions within their Backupify account, including those taken by both the administrator and end users. Each log entry includes action type, action description, username, IP address and timestamp.

Subdomain Management allows administrators to easily add and securely manage the backups for multiple Google Apps subdomains from one Backupify account, providing the three times daily backups to all existing accounts under the parent domain.

"Backupify makes it easy for our administrators to manage the growing number of Google Apps users and data within our organizational structure," said Dave Ouyang, IT Manager at leading residential solar company, Sungevity, Inc. "Our confidence in Backupify is based on its ongoing developments with Google Apps as Sungevity continues to grow. With Backupify, our mission critical data is always being backed up across the company no matter how many users we add to the cloud."

The new release comes on the heels of the company's rapid growth in 2012. With more than 5,000 paying business customers to date, Backupify reached the following milestones in the past six months:

  • Grew data under management to more than 900TB
  • Grew number of stored Gmail messages by 35 percent to 3 billion
  • Grew number of documents backed up by 29 percent from 500 million to 700 million
  • Added the one-millionth online account for backup; across the services that we support, Backupify is now backing up more than one million accounts in total
