American Bar Association SElects EMC's Mozy to Join the ABA New Member Benefit Advantage Program as Online Backup Provider
New Program Targets Small- to Medium-sized Law Firms
SALT LAKE CITY, Utah – August 6, 2008 – Mozy, Inc., an EMC Company (NYSE:EMC) and the leader in online backup for businesses and consumers, today announced an agreement with the American Bar Association to launch a new ABA member program designed to ease the challenges associated with backing up vital information. Through the ABA Member Advantage Program, the ABA is making available to its members special pricing if they choose the Mozy™ service as their firm's online backup provider.
"The American Bar Association sets the standards of excellence for the legal community, and we’re honored to be a provider of online backup for their members," said Vance Checketts, chief operating officer of Mozy Inc., an EMC Company. "Mozy understands the needs of legal firms and reliably backs up critical data for thousands of lawyers today."
IT staff at legal firms face many challenges, but case file and message retention - and data protection in general - are amongst the biggest of their headaches. Information loss can threaten a firm's existence, yet even the biggest investments in on-site backup can't protect against loss from natural disasters, theft, and user error.
In the past six months, Mozy’s law firm customer base has grown 200 percent. The service is growing in popularity because it automatically protects digital information, including case files, spreadsheets, e-mail and financial documents, from data loss in the event of a hard drive crash, accidental deletion, natural disaster or theft. All files are encrypted first on the user’s machine and then securely transferred to Mozy’s remote data centers via the same encryption methods used for online banking.
Mozy is the leader in online data backup for consumers and businesses. With more than 750,000 users and 20,000 business customers, Mozy offers a simple, automatic and secure service for backing up data over the Internet. Mozy was acquired by EMC Corporation in 2007 and operates as part of the EMC Cloud Infrastructure and Services Division. Information can be found at www.mozy.com
EMC Corporation (NYSE: EMC) is the world's leading developer and provider of information infrastructure technology and solutions that enable organizations of all sizes to transform the way they compete and create value from their information.

With more than 413,000 members, the American Bar Association is the largest voluntary professional membership organization in the world. As the national voice of the legal profession, the ABA works to improve the administration of justice, promotes programs that assist lawyers and judges in their work, accredits law schools, provides continuing legal education, and works to build public understanding around the world of the importance of the rule of law.
