Clients who use BackupAssist Classic

What's in it for you?

  • Protect Windows
  • You can start with the essential protection every business needs: full server backup and disaster recovery.

  • Keep as many eggs in as many baskets as appropriate for your organization.
  • Ideal solution to meet business continuity, GDPR, SOX, HIPAA and other compliance.
  • No one has an infinite budget. You need to find the best cyber-resilience solution within your resources.
  • BackupAssist Classic is ideal with its modular pricing. Essential resilience starts at just 65 cents per day, thanks to our 5-year pricing guarantee.
  • Enhanced features can be purchased as add-ons.
  • Switching to BackupAssist is cost effective. Reuse existing hardware like removable HDDs, NAS, RDX drives, iSCSI SAN, private cloud infrastructure.
  • Not everyone is an expert at Windows administration… but all administrators must be able to bring back critical systems.
  • BackupAssist Classic contains the right recovery tools, enabling 19 different types of recovery – anything from traditional Windows Server BMDR, to a near-instant recovery of Hyper-V VMs, to restoring a single lost email attachment.
  • Each procedure is carefully documented so administrators of all skill levels can follow them.
  • The rise of hacking and ransomware leaves old-style backup products vulnerable. If backups are compromised, you might not be able to recover without paying the ransom.

How is BackupAssist Classic different?

Each have different systems, data, risks, and priorities. And this is where the versatility of BackupAssist Classic really shines. You can customize it to suit you.

This may sound counter intuitive: If you’re running backup software that only does backups, you’re probably at risk.

Here’s why: Since around 2015, the explosive growth in hacking attacks and ransomware changed the landscape forever. Far too many businesses and organizations have been hijacked by cyber criminals, held to ransom and extorted for money.

If ransomware or hackers destroy your backups, you won’t have a reliable recovery point.

Backups must now be resilient to these threats!

BackupAssist Classic contains active cyber-security defenses against these threats.

In 2017, we released our CryptoSafeGuard features to provide specific technological safety mitigations against ransomware.

And in 2020, we’re proud to announce the Cyber Black Box, which helps with cyber investigations if you’re unfortunately enough to get hacked.

Your organization’s needs are different from someone else’s. Just look at the four examples above.

What are your priorities?

  • Purely business continuity?
  • Offsite record keeping for 7-10 years, for SOX compliance?
  • Securing huge data sets to meet GDPR availability?
  • Historical versioning of documents?
  • Is database protection critical because you have a practice management system to back up, or are emails and files the most important?
  • Keeping within a limited budget?

BackupAssist Classic’s core strength is versatility. That means you can find the right backup solution that is customized to you, and fits like a glove.

We achieve this by supporting multiple types of backup (drive imaging, application specific backup and file backups), and a wide variety of backup destinations. Together, with the right tools for restore and recovery, you’ll find the right options for your needs.

And as a side note, MSPs also love BackupAssist Classic because it’s the one backup and recovery package that can be used across many different and diverse clients.

This is critical, with privacy leglislation such as GDPRHIPAA, and data sovereignty laws becoming ever more strict.

Our design means you will always know where your data is and how many copies there are. Most of all, you’re always in control thanks to BackupAssist Classic’s options for on-premise, private cloud and public cloud destinations.

Unlike other vendors, who have been known to transfer their customer’s backup data from one country to another without informing the customer, you’ll never be at risk of a breach of regulation with BackupAssist.

Backups are all about risk mitigation.

Who knows more about risk than Warren Buffett? Even he doesn’t keep all his eggs in one basket. He spreads his investments across 15 to 20 stocks. If one goes bad, his downside is capped.

So why does most backup software only offer you one type of backup (egg), or one destination (basket)? Any single configuration mistake, malfunction, or successful hacking penetration will put that backup at risk. That’s why so many organizations have had to pay ransoms.

Modern cyber-resilience should be built upon multiple layers of backup protection. Multiple eggs in multiple baskets. BackupAssist Classic offers precisely that.

A backup is only good if you can recover from it.

Although blindingly obvious, so many backup products will use their own obscure, proprietary data formats to store your data. That’s an unacceptable business risk to you if your data is in a format that only your backup software can open up.

How are you going to get your data back after 5, 10 or 20 years have passed, if your backup software vendor goes out of business or discontinues their product?

BackupAssist Classic guarantees your data will be accessible well into the future by using ubiquitous or non-proprietary data formats. Wherever possible, we stay with well-known formats such as VHDX, ZIP, PST and SQL, or simply replicating files to the backup target. This gives you options: access your data using BackupAssist’s Restore Console, or native or in-built tools in Windows.

Out of the box, BackupAssist Classic contains everything you need for essential protection and cyber-resilience. That means the average small business can get essential cyber-resilience for just 65 cents per day – and that includes our Windows backup software and backup hardware.

If you prefer additional layers of protection – “multiple eggs in multiple baskets” – you can purchase our Cloud Offsite Add-on or Tape Archiving Add-on.

If you need super fast recoveries in a Hyper-V environment, use our Hyper-V Advanced Add-on. Point-in-time recovery for SQL Server, use our SQL Continuous Add-on. For granular item restore in Exchange, use our Exchange Granular Add-on.

You only pay for what you need. That gives you the best cyber-resilience within limited resources.

We understand the problems of bait-and-switch pricing, unannounced price hikes and you’re “locked in” to a SaaS provider.

That’s why we do business differently – and that means you benefit. As a privately owned company, we put our clients first.

Our “we’ve got your back guarantee” gives you a 5-year price freeze guarantee on continuous subscriptions to BackupCare. If you buy BackupAssist Classic today, we automatically lock-in your BackupCare renewals at today’s prices for the next 5 years. No pre-purchase necessary, no fine print.

And if you decide to switch your on-premise server to the cloud and have unused credit, we let you apply any unused credit to our other products.

That’s fair, ethical business. Try us out and discover for yourself.
