. (NYSE: IMN), a global scalable storage and data security company, today announced its new Imation Backup Services, cloud-based online backup for secure business data protection. Available in the United States and Canada, Imation ONE Backup Service safeguards desktops and laptops, and Imation PRO Backup Service protects servers, desktops and laptops. Both Imation ONE and Imation PRO offer effective and affordable cloud storage to meet the backup and fast recovery needs of businesses.
Imation ONE and Imation PRO deliver efficient backup and fast recovery, using industry-leading data efficiency and compression techniques and patented software to minimize data size, number of files, and bandwidth impact. The result is a service to provide both a failsafe for businesses without any data protection in place, or to fit seamlessly within a tiered storage architecture by adding an important offsite layer.
“Many businesses still don’t back up their data, despite the obvious risks of possible data loss. Cloud backup services provide one option, yet many businesses are reluctant to rely on cloud storage for sensitive data,” said Tom Gelson, director, Business Development, Imation. “Imation ONE and Imation PRO online backup and recovery services deliver a unique combination of affordable and scalable backup with comprehensive security features to support full integration into a company's IT data protection strategy.”
Unique features of Imation ONE and Imation PRO include:
Imation ONE Backup Service
- Duplicate backup for enhanced data protection;
- Military-grade encryption, to prevent data breaches and support regulatory compliance; and,
- An easy-to-use management portal for web-based restore, lock-down, and reporting.
delivers unlimited backup for business data on all company computers for one low price per month. The service is applicable for laptops and desktops running Windows XP and newer Windows operating systems.
Imation PRO Backup Service
delivers online backup for business servers, with mission-critical protection against accidental data deletion or catastrophic data loss. Imation PRO works on all Windows-based desktops, laptops and business servers using Windows Server 2003 and newer.
“Two of the hottest trends in data protection are the better use of backup appliances and the inclusion of a cloud-based tier in one’s broader data protection strategy,” said Jason Buffington, senior data protection analyst at ESG. “Between Imation’s pedigree in tape, its DataGuard disk-based appliances, and now a cloud-service, it is apparent that Imation wants to play at every tier of data protection.”
