Cloud computing is so enticing because it represents a way to utilize the resources of a virtual host via a pay-per-usage model with almost unlimited scalability, low cost storage, and resources on demand. Moreover, the cloud provides intrinsically layered security which would seemingly reinforce data protection.
BackupAssist 365 backs up files and emails stored in the cloud. While backup of cloud-based data may seem rather ho-hum in today’s artificial intelligent, block chain obsessed, digital transformation focused world, it solves a real world that nearly every size organization faces: how to cost-effectively and simply protect all those pesky files and emails that people store in cloud applications such as DropBox, Office 365, Google Drive, OneDrive, Gmail, Outlook and others.
MELBOURNE, Australia and BOSTON, June 19, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — BackupAssist®, a leading provider of automated Windows server backup and recovery software for small and medium enterprises (SMEs), today announced it has been named to the Backup Review “Top 100 Cloud Backup Companies for June 2018.”
One of the biggest challenges that small and medium-sized businesses (SMBs) face is protecting their critical data in an era of increasing cybercrime. While it’s often the Fortune 500 companies that make the headlines when data-related disasters strike, ransomware attacks present a serious problem to all businesses worldwide, regardless of size. Smaller firms must face the real threat of a ransomware attack just like larger firms, since SMBs and small and medium enterprises (SMEs) are being targeted alongside larger companies.
BackupAssist®, a leading provider of automated Windows server backup and recovery software for small and medium enterprises (SMEs), today announced that Storage Switzerland, a premier authority on virtualization and storage, has released a Briefing Notes featuring its newly announced BackupAssist CryptoSafeGuard™ ransomware protection entitled, “Can Ransomware Infect Your Backups? – BackupAssist Briefing Note.”

BackupAssist®, a leading provider of automated Windows server backup and recovery software for small and medium enterprises (SMEs), today announced the worldwide general availability launch of its CryptoSafeGuard™ ransomware protection. Robust enough for enterprise deployment but offered at a dramatically more affordable price point, the new software enables small and medium-sized businesses (SMBs) to protect against having their backups encrypted and held for ransom.
Windows data protection specialist BackupAssist is the latest vendor to provide a capability that helps combat ransomware. The Australia-based company recently launched CryptoSafeGuard, part of its BackupAssist data protection software for SMBs. The application includes CryptoSafeGuard Detector and CryptoSafeGuard Protector for the ransomware backup strategy.
The industry has been seeing attacks in which malicious software invades end-user PCs and encrypts user files. This type of attack is described as “ransomware.” The end-user or the organization is offered the key to decrypt the files, for a price. If the price is paid, the key is not always provided. The WannaCry ransomware attack is a recent example. BackupAssist believes that it has a solution, CryptoSafeGuard, for this problem for mid-market organizations using Windows software. CryptoSafeGuard monitors end-user systems while backing up changing data files. If it observes an attempt to rapidly change entire directories or entire filesystems, it steps in to protect the off-system backups, notify administrators and restore the previous environment. Here’s how the company describes CryptoSafeGuard:
In today’s exclusive IT Briefcase interview, BackupAssist’s CEO, Linus Chang, shares his thoughts on the growing and continuous threat of ransomware – not only across enterprise environments, but the small-to-medium business (SMB) space as well; and what organizations can do to protect against infection and ensure they never need pay ransom again.
BackupAssist, a provider of automated Windows server backup and recovery software, has expanded its channel to include MSPs. Until now, BackupAssist has targeted small and medium enterprise customers through its global Perpetual Reseller Program that it launched in 2008. But with the growing popularity of subscription billing, the company decided to introduce an MSP program in North America.
BackupAssist, which has been around since 2002, offers a robust, scalable and easy to use Windows backup solution with enterprise class DP and DR features at a modest cost, which should appeal to cost sensitive SMBs. BackupAssist also provides ready access to live support technicians trained to help users who may not be very technically knowledgeable.
BackupAssist as a Service (BAaaS) provides easy and predictable backup of apps, data and systems, and servers; does customized bare metal recovery to the same or dissimilar hardware; can remotely manage backups, restores, and more for customer sites; and allows organizations to swiftly and simply restore their data.
Australia-headquartered BackupAssist formally launched its SMB- and Windows-focused backup and disaster recovery solution this year, along with a new Version 10 of their software. They are now reaching out to the MSP market in North America with their BackupAssist as a Service (BAaaS) program for MSPs. The program has been operating previously in APAC and Europe.
Australia-based BackupAssist, with offices in the U.S., has expanded its go-to-market strategy in the North America with a new MSP Program and a new BackupAssist-as-a-Service product, the company announced Monday. Last month, BackupAssist [Version] 10, with new cloud independent – i.e. Amazon S3 or Microsoft Azure – backup features, was released.
iSpeed Solutions, today announced it has extended its partnership with BackupAssist and will now offer BackupAssist as a Service (BAaaS), fortifying its leadership position as a premier provider of data protection solutions for the SMB. BAaaS enables iSpeed solutions to ensure its clients have access to the features and functionality required for enterprise-class data protection, with the modular deployment flexibility and pricing that is ideal for the SMB.
