FORT LEE, N.J. and HERZLIYA PITUACH, Israel, Oct. 26, 2016 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- OwnBackup today announced recent industry accolades and the general availability of the latest version of its powerful cloud-to-cloud backup and recovery platform. OwnBackup now delivers more ways for organizations to improve database monitoring and proactively manage cloud data to drive added business value.
Existing investors Innovation Endeavors and Oryzn Capital participated in OwnBackup’s recent Series A funding round and were joined by Salesforce Ventures, Salesforce’s corporate investment group. With the investment, OwnBackup will accelerate its global expansion efforts and provide the comprehensive data protection and rapid mitigation capabilities that enterprises need to confidently embrace the cloud era.
Establishing a New Industry Priority
“Managing an environment encompassing nearly 20 million listed business accounts is a complex task, and we are committed to proactively protecting the data in each and every one of our accounts,” said Alex Tiplitsky, VP of Technology Operations at YP. “OwnBackup helps us backup our critical SaaS data faster than ever before – cutting backup cycle for our massive amount of database records from almost two weeks to a mere 36 hours.”
The award-winning platform serves as a comprehensive backup solution for enterprises. Rapid repair and recovery of cloud data is made possible in bulk or at a granular level, helping organizations meet increasingly stringent compliance mandates. In fact, OwnBackup earned the Salesforce Online Demo Jam Winner for Non-Profits in September 2016.
“Organizations are embracing cloud-based infrastructure and Software-as-a-Service (SaaS) applications in droves, yet few are properly equipped to protect and restore the data within their SaaS infrastructure. Data is the lifeblood of today’s businesses so relying on legacy backup tools or assuming SLA agreements with SaaS vendors cover data can be detrimental mistakes,” said Sam Gutmann, OwnBackup CEO. “Taking a proactive approach to managing SaaS-application data needs to become a priority. Our goal is to give enterprises an easy way to effectively know not only that there is a potential data loss or corruption event, but also exactly what data is affected and how to fix it.”
Driving Cloud-to-Cloud Backup and Recovery Innovation
OwnBackup protects billions of SaaS-application records every day and helps customers keep their businesses running smoothly. Major platform advancements to strengthen proactive data protection include:
- An easy-to-understand way to visualize how data changes over time – The platform’s new graphing system creates visual data reports that deliver a comprehensive view into data changes, enabling the ability to derive rapid insight and response. Users can also drill down into the charts to isolate specific objects or find out the number of objects added, deleted or modified. This helps administrators and database managers easily spot normal versus abnormal behavior.
- Rapid metadata restore capabilities – The latest version of the platform takes metadata protection to the next level by protecting and automatically recovering metadata corruptions or deletions within the actual application schema. An industry first, this allows users to fully restore their customized application configurations directly within the OwnBackup platform.
- A sophisticated executive notification system – OwnBackup now can instantly deliver important alerts when unusual patterns emerge to provide timely C-level visibility (i.e., percentage of records modified/deleted during an application update). Based on customizable thresholds, customers can now deliver enterprise-level, easily understood insights into SaaS-application data for business and executive users, as well as technical teams.
