Carbonite Expands Functionality To Deliver Better Cloud Backup For Higher Education

BOSTON, Dec. 6, 2012 /PRNewswire/ --  Carbonite, Inc. (NASDAQ: CARB), a leading provider of online backup solutions for consumers and small to medium sized businesses, today announced that it has added new features to its Carbonite Business suite to better meet the backup needs of the higher education market. Based on feedback from current education customers, the new Groups and Search features will provide an institution with easier management for the cloud backups of their users and devices.

"When you work at a college or university, your computer likely holds important information and documents that are vital to your department – from student records and research documents to tuition reports," said Pete Lamson, SVP of Cloud Backup, Carbonite. "We have taken strides to ensure Carbonite is the better cloud backup plan for colleges or universities by adding new features designed with their needs in mind. Now, our education customers can more easily manage their institution's backup at a price that will fit their budget."

The new features added to Carbonite cloud backup include Groups and Search. The features are the first of several new enhancements planned for the education sector and are also helpful for small businesses with multiple locations or departments.  
  • Groups allows admins to group users together so that they can easily locate and better manage the backups of specific groups. For example, backups can be categorized by staff, faculty, departments or other preferred segmentations within an institution.
  • Search allows admins to search for individual users, computers or groups within the organization rather than manually looking through lists.

"Today's faculty and staff work digitally and with increased mobility, so Carbonite's anytime, anywhere access ensures they can remotely access their files from any Internet-connected computer or mobile device, regardless of if they forget a research document in the office or left their laptop at home," added Lamson. "Plus, considering how many documents they may be working on at any time, continuous backup for all of an institution's on and off campus staff and faculty is key."
