OwnBackup Debuts on Microsoft Azure as First Cloud Backup Solution for Salesforce and the Salesforce App Cloud

OwnBackup today announced the launch of its cloud-to-cloud backup and recovery platform, tailored for Salesforce and enterprise applications build on the platform, on Microsoft Azure. OwnBackup customers now have the choice of where to put the business-critical data from these applications and can protect that data via enterprise-grade backup tools.

"OwnBackup is our security blanket for the entire loan transaction process. If we cannot service our customers who are trying to conduct a loan transaction, our overall production and our reputation suffer," noted Brandi Smith, assistant vice president and business analyst for Yadkin Bank. "OwnBackup empowers us to not only identify the data loss events when they happen, but also quickly restore the system's data integrity down to the individual loan level. Thanks to the ease of use and rapid mitigation capabilities of the OwnBackup solution, we can confidently avoid loan production delays and customer headaches."

As a recent graduate of the Microsoft Accelerator program and part of the 2016 Microsoft Global Startup Roadshow, offering its advanced backup platform for Salesforce and platform data on Azure was a natural next step for OwnBackup. "Through the Microsoft Accelerator program, we have watched the OwnBackup team rapidly innovate to meet changing enterprise demands. We are thrilled to see their solution fully integrated and leveraging the power of Microsoft Azure to solve critical customer business problems," said Navot Volk, managing director, Microsoft Accelerator.

Backup is a critical component for businesses running applications and storing data within the cloud. Today's enterprises need the same level of data protection across on-premises and cloud environments. OwnBackup gives enterprise customers the most powerful and reliable cloud-to-cloud backup solution that can easily and fully restore lost Salesforce data in bulk or at a granular level to keep their business running smoothly.

"Enterprises are still unknowingly putting business-critical information at tremendous risk by failing to backup cloud data. Most enterprises still do not realize that cloud data should be protected by an enterprise backup and recovery solution," said OwnBackup CEO Sam Gutmann. "We plan to continue to deepen our relationship with Microsoft so we can offer an easy and effective way for all enterprises to protect business-critical data in the cloud."

Enterprise customers rely on OwnBackup to protect billions of Salesforce records every day, prevent data corruption, meet compliance mandates and swiftly restore cloud data in the event of a data loss.
