What Makes v12 Special?

From the Founder

Linus Chang

Founder of BackupAssist

Since its creation, BackupAssist has been on a mission. We’re here to protect businesses from
the three threats to their data: physical destruction, human error, and cyber criminals.
This is why we’re so excited to introduce you to the v12 update.

We’re coming up on two decades of providing support for our clients. As we’ve grown, BackupAssist has remained
a privately owned company. The clients we serve range from “mom and pop” businesses to Fortune 500

Keeping ownership of our company means we’re able to make the best decisions to look after our clients and
provide stellar backup support. The v12 update is one of those decisions. We’ve been working on it in the
background for quite some time, and it’s exciting to finally introduce it.

This new update comes with best-in-class backup monitoring and cyber resilience measures. It has all the
features you’d wish for in a first-class backup software, and a few more you didn’t know you needed ...until we
provided them.

The v12 update comes with increased flexibility, security, and speed. The monitoring, system recovery and backup
capabilities of this software are formidable. We’re proud to bring this to our loyal clients, and we look forward to
keeping your data safe for the next two decades.

our happy customers

Most reliable backup solution
I have used in many years
“ BackupAssist was, by far, the easiest and most reliable backup solution I have used in many years. I have been in the Information Technology field since 1987 and have seen many software vendors come and go. If BackupAssist keeps their products as good as this one then I suspect they will be in the market for the long haul! ”
John Binford

Information Technology Director

It has been a pleasure
working with BackupAssist
“ After the first several weeks of testing your software, I can say that being in the business since the late 80's, I never run into backup tools giving so many options, way above average performance and at the same time staying wonderfully transparent and user-friendly. It has been a pleasure working with BackupAssist ”

Government of Ontario

It's an
excellent product
“ We tried lots of software. Among these evaluated were (major competitors products). All of the packages except yours operated inconsistently (or not at all), several would not read backup tapes it created and verified, some could not access hardware or access was inconsistent, some caused system lookups or blue screen crashes... all of the above packages ranged in price from $900 USD to $3,000 USD. “
Mr. Cjarles D Amata Jr

CP Technologies Inc.

Really great
“ Really great performance. I highly recommend BackupAssist based on my experiences to date, and I know one consultant who has already purchased the software for a Windows server with a Synology DS1815+ NAS unit. I use one myself, with an iSCSI interface connection that makes a large NAS partittion appear to be mounted as a local hard drive. BackupAssist finds it easy to locate and use. The price deduction compared to SAN storage is amazing. “
