Survey Finds Small Businesses Ignore Risks of Data Protection On Mobile Devices

SEATTLE – March 12, 2012 – Mozy®, the industry-leading online backup service, released the surprising results of a data protection survey. The survey, produced by Mozy and independent market research firm Compass Partners, LLC, found that an increasing number of professionals (80 percent) work remotely and rely on personal devices such as smartphones (63 percent), iPads (30 percent) and laptops (80 percent) to access company data. Despite the expectation that professionals with sensitive client data would understand the associated risks and responsibilities, the numbers reflect that many professionals working remotely, and their companies, are either unaware or too casual about how to keep this information safe and secure.

It found that they were at even greater risk compared to generalized small and medium businesses to experience a significant loss of sensitive business information.

The survey found that while over two-thirds of all small-to-midsize businesses with fewer than 1,000 employees have a formal procedure for backing...Read More

IDC WHITE PAPER: IS BACKUP ALONE ENOUGH?

Paper explains how companies can go “beyond backup” to be more strategic and enable greater organizational productivity

SEATTLE – February 15, 2012 – A newly released white paper sponsored by Mozy® highlights a significant shift in the backup industry: Though online backup is a foundational technology in the protection of business data, it is no longer enough. The paper explains how the need for greater productivity in concert with the increased ability to share, access, and work on information anywhere, at any time, on any device, is driving new services such as file access, file sharing, and file usage and collaboration across a diverse number of access points.

Written by industry analyst firm IDC and sponsored by Mozy, the new white paper, entitled “Make Your Backups a Competitive Advantage for Greater Productivity” shows companies how to make backups more strategic, avoid the downfalls of on-premise backup software, and how to enable greater organizational productivity.

According to the paper: “Service providers are leveraging backup services to enable higher levels of worker productivity to individuals, departments, and organizations. This increased productivity comes from providing functions pertaining to collaboration and data sharing, managing accessibility, reuse and leveraging the value of the data, and improvements in disaster recovery scenarios.” Read More

BEWARE OF 6:00 P.M. ON SATURDAYS IN DECEMBER!

Americans lose $39 billion of items a year with most losses occurring on Saturdays in December

SEATTLE – December 6, 2012 – Figures released today highlight the need for Americans to protect their belongings as the most dangerous time of year for losing things approaches.

The transition from work to weekend, and Saturday afternoon Christmas shopping to Saturday night parties, appears to create the perfect conditions for loss: more items go missing on Fridays, Saturdays and Mondays than the rest of the week put together.

And people travelling through Chicago, New York and Atlanta should be extra cautious since these three cities form the Bermuda Triangle for lost property in the U.S. – with more items reported lost or stolen there than in other cities. Read More

MOZY URGES BUSINESSES TO TAKE RESPONSIBILITY FOR DATA PROTECTION

Celebrate World Backup Day March 31 by Backing Up Business Data Today

SEATTLE – March 29, 2012 – Mozy®, the world’s most trusted provider of data protection and availability for consumers and businesses, released surprising new statistics: One-third of small-to-midsize businesses (SMBs) allow employees to select their own method of backup for their data at work – essentially passing the buck when it comes to data protection. This is concerning because companies that don’t provide formal policies instead rely on uncoordinated backup practices that can leave business owners susceptible to significant risks in the event of data loss. World Backup Day is an excellent opportunity for SMBs to reevaluate their company backup policies. They can then implement a safe and reliable protection service for their valuable company and client data.

The Mozy survey of more than 640 SMBs was conducted by independent research firm Compass Partners to identify employees and executives’ habits and attitudes about backup and data security. The survey found that a significant number of SMBs don’t implement safe backup strategies – despite well-documented risks for loss of sensitive client and company data. Incredibly, 60 percent of companies surveyed do not ... Read More

Non-profit organizations have long understood the need to back up their donation records, account information and other important documentation. They understand that hard drives fail and recognize ... Read More

MOZY COMPLETES SUCCESSFUL SAS 70 TYPE II AUDIT AND ISO 27001 CERTIFICATION

Additional Controls Ensure Secure, Quality Processes for Mozy, Setting Company Apart From Other Online Backup Providers

SEATTLE – April 14, 2011 – Mozy™, the industry-leading online backup service from EMC Corporation (NYSE: EMC), today announced it successfully completed a SAS 70 (Statement on Auditing Standards No. 70: Service Organizations) Type II audit and received 27001 certification by the International Organization for Standardization (ISO). In combination, these validations of Mozy's standards for security demonstrate the level of protection that business and consumer data receive as part of Mozy's backup services, further setting apart Mozy's services from those of other online backup vendors.

"We keep very sensitive data on our network, and when we risk-assess which vendors are safe to work with, these audits and certifications are high up on the list," said customer Rick Razum, Vice President of Information Technology of The State Bank of Geneva. "I do realize it's a long, thorough and expensive process to go through a SAS 70 Type II audit, and for those reasons most companies don't do it. So it means that much more to us that Mozy would pursue this. It gives us one more reason to justify our using MozyPro® to back up our computers and servers for years to come."

SAS 70 is a widely recognized auditing standard developed by the American Institute of Certified Public Accountants (AICPA). SAS 70 verifies ... Read More

BEWARE OF 6:00 P.M. ON SATURDAYS IN DECEMBER!

Americans lose $39 billion of items a year with most losses occurring on Saturdays in December

SEATTLE – December 6, 2012 – Figures released today highlight the need for Americans to protect their belongings as the most dangerous time of year for losing things approaches. According to the research, commissioned by Mozy®, the world’s most trusted provider of online back up and data access solutions, more items are lost at 6:00 p.m. on Saturdays in December than at any other time of the year.

The transition from work to weekend, and Saturday afternoon Christmas shopping to Saturday night parties, appears to create the perfect conditions for loss: more items go missing on Fridays, Saturdays and Mondays than the rest of the week put together.

And people travelling through Chicago, New York and Atlanta should be extra cautious since these three cities form the Bermuda Triangle for lost property in the U.S. – with more items ... Read More

DECHO MORE THAN DOUBLES NUMBER OF MOZY LEGAL CUSTOMERS

Cost Savings, Security Benefits and Growth in Electronically-Stored Information Drives Law Firms to Adopt Mozy

SEATTLE, Wash. – Thursday May 28, 2009 - Decho Corporation, an EMC Company (NYSE: EMC), today announced the number of legal organizations backing up client and business data with MozyPro® has more than doubled from the previous year. As the most trusted online backup solution for consumers, legal professionals and businesses, MozyPro is secure, budget-friendly and requires minimal resources to manage. The addition of Mozy™ to the American Bar Association’s (ABA) Member Advantage program in August 2008 has also been instrumental in driving this growth and creating awareness among law firms around the need to conduct a regular legal backup.

In a time of tight IT budgets, law firms are looking for solutions that help lower costs and improve operating efficiencies. At the same time, these firms are perpetually working to preserve and protect electronically-stored information – like case files and client information – a consideration that has become all the more important due to legal retention requirements included the 2006 amendment to the Federal Rules of Civil Procedure.

Law Firms Deploy MozyPro With Minimal Upfront Costs

MOZY CELEBRATES NATIONAL SMALL BUSINESS WEEK WITH TIMELY REMINDER TO BACK UP

90% of businesses believe they could benefit from cloud backup, but only 15% are using it

SEATTLE – May 18, 2012 – More than 90% of entrepreneurs and small business owners feel cloud-based backup could benefit their business, according to a recent survey by Mozy®, the world's most trusted provider of data protection and availability for consumers and businesses. While it is encouraging that so many businesses are enthusiastic about using cloud services, the survey revealed that a mere 15% of small companies actually use cloud backup to protect their business.

Approximately two-thirds do have some form of backup – which is encouraging because any cloud service should complement an existing local backup strategy – but most of these onsite methods, such as tape or DVDs, are antiquated and susceptible to failure in the event of an on-site disaster. Other studies have shown that companies that lose their data often go out of business. (Source: National Archives & Records Administration in Washington, D.C.) Many traditional backup ... Read More

SEATTLE – September 5, 2012 – Mozy®, the world's most trusted provider of secure data backup and access, would like to remind individuals and businesses that September is National Preparedness Month, as sponsored by The U.S. Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA.)

Preparing for an emergency should include protecting not only one's physical assets, but digital assets as well.

"It's easy to imagine the impact of a disaster on the physical items in your home or business, but we often overlook the value of what's stored on our computers, servers, and tablets," said Dave Robinson, VP of Marketing at Mozy. "The irreplaceable photos, videos, financial documents, and business files on your laptops and servers are just as susceptible to fire and water damage as the furniture, printers, and file cabinets.
