Toronto (PRESS RELEASE – April 15, 2010) — Data Deposit Box, the online backup and recovery service designed especially for small and mid-sized businesses (SMBs), today announced the launch of KineticDâ„¢, a comprehensive cloud storage and remote access solution that enables SMBs to continuously back up, restore, access and share information online from any location.
Originally launched in 2003, the company’s industry-acclaimed Data Deposit Box product delivers advanced, patented technology that is used daily by over 40,000 customers and is supported around the world through an extensive partner network. Data Deposit Box has distinguished itself as the pioneer in “Continuous Backup,” providing a higher level of data protection than other scheduled backup systems. The next generation platform, KineticD is designed with the same principles of coupling extensible, best-in-class technologies with best practices in data management and information security. Its agile, cloud-based services are specifically designed for SMBs that want to activate their digital assets and more efficiently share and collaborate through improved access to information.
“There is a growing, universal need for secure, flexible cloud-based backup solutions designed specifically for small business environments,” said Brad Nisbet, program manager for IDC Storage & Data Management Services. “Many SMBs are gravitating toward storage-as-a-service to leverage the ease and cost savings, and today the cloud is useful for more than just storage. Solutions like KineticD also provide an ideal collaboration platform for businesses to leverage the abundant content stored there to share knowledge and improve productivity.”
In announcing the new offering, Jamie Brenzel, CEO of KineticD stated, “Businesses today require new storage, disaster recovery and access solutions that better adapt to the way they need to do business while still maintaining the highest levels of security in an online world. KineticD brings secure, affordable cloud-based services to SMB users so they can easily backup, restore, access, and share their digital assets – wherever their business takes them.”
KineticD provides solutions to the key IT challenges facing SMBs today:
- KineticSecure – As business information and assets become more digital, there is a rapid growth in data, drives and devices. Protecting these assets for disaster recovery has become more important than ever before. The KineticSecure storage service enables users to easily backup, access, share and recover online digital assets using either a Windows PC or Mac client. Unlike other online backup services, its patented Continuous Backupâ„¢ technology immediately detects, encrypts and automatically saves incremental changes – even with open files such as Outlook and with always-on servers such as Exchange. KineticSecure makes it easy to recover multiple files, versions, folders and/or systems through the KineticD Web portal and lets users immediately restore lost files with just a few mouse clicks wherever and whenever needed.
- KineticExtendâ„¢ – Businesses and their people are more mobile today. They need to have access to their digital assets wherever business takes them. New solutions are required that allow business people to securely access and work with their data remotely over the network, from any location and computer, more efficiently sharing and collaborating through better access to information. KineticExtend lets users securely access applications, files and devices on their PC from another PC anytime and anywhere there is an Internet connection. Service providers and IT support professionals will also find it easy to securely access a user’s desktop without the complication of a Virtual Private Network (VPN) or taking the time to go onsite.
