Mozy Delivers First Online Backup Service for Mac-Powered Businesses
Mozy Extends its Commitment to the Apple Community with MozyPro for Mac
SALT LAKE CITY, Utah – October 7, 2008 – Mozy, Inc., an EMC Company (NYSE: EMC) and the leader in online backup for consumers and businesses, today announced the first online backup service designed for Mac-powered businesses. MozyPro® for Mac extends the award-winning Mozy™ online backup service to the growing numbers of businesses using Apple Mac desktops, laptops and servers. Mozy provides simple, automatic and secure backup of critical information at a remote location, protecting against hard drive failure, computer loss or theft and natural disaster.
MozyPro for Mac builds upon MozyHome® for Mac, the industry’s first online backup service designed for Mac users. MozyPro now allows businesses using either OS X or Windows to back up all their desktops, laptops and servers and manage backup and restore processes from a single, Web-based administration console. MozyPro also provides 24x7 phone support, network drive support and support for popular server applications such as iCal Server, Mail Services and Directory on OS X Server and Exchange, SQL Server and Active Directory on Windows Server.
"Starting today, businesses with Macs can back up online with Mozy. MozyPro makes it easy for businesses using OS X as well as Windows to manage backups of all their computers from a single place," said Vance Checketts, chief operating officer of Mozy. "Since our release of MozyHome for Mac in May of this year, thousands of Mac-powered businesses have contacted Mozy asking for an online backup service, and we’re delighted to make MozyPro for Mac available to them."
MozyPro for Mac serves a rapidly expanding market. Small businesses are increasingly using Macs to power their business. In its most recent quarter, Apple reports that Mac shipments surged 41 percent more than a year ago, driven in part by the creative industry, the education market and small businesses (SMBs). Because information is so critical to these businesses, they have a strong need to back up and protect their critical intellectual assets. According to the National Archives and Records Administration in Washington, D.C., 93 percent of companies that lost their data for 10 days or more due to a disaster filed for bankruptcy within one year of the disaster. Of those companies, 50 percent filed for bankruptcy immediately.
"Mozy has given us peace of mind as it’s been backing up the critical information on our servers." said Dustin Stone, director of information systems at the Wisconsin Credit Union League. "Since our office uses both PCs and Macs, we look forward to extending this peace of mind to all our computers, and MozyPro for Mac will now complete our backup strategy."
"The University of San Francisco has been waiting for an online backup service that would support Mac computers, as many of our faculty and staff do their day-to-day work on Macs," said Walter Petruska, information security officer at the University of San Francisco. "We have put the MozyPro for Mac service through our testing environment and are ready to deploy it across the university."
"Mozy provides reliability and certainty for the users that spend most of their days, weeks and months on the road. Before I used to have them back themselves up onto external drives but now I can monitor that their data is safely and automatically backed up wherever they are through MozyPro's dashboard," said Anoush d’Orville of ECAD Consulting, a Mac consulting, support and solutions company out of New York City. "This really is the perfect solution for all businesses who require a cost-effective, reliable and scalable solution for backups."
