CAMBRIDGE, Mass., Dec. 12, 2012 /PRNewswire/ --Backupify, the leading
provider of online backup services for cloud application data, today launched
"Backupify Winter Release 2012," the new version of its backup and recovery
solution for enterprises using Google Apps. Designed to better meet the needs
of larger organizations that have more complex internal structures, legal
requirements and subdomains, Backupify for Google Apps now provides customers
with a strong set of administrative control features and a centralized
interface for managing their business-critical data stored in the cloud.

The Winter Release delivers on Backupify's promise of incorporating new
features based on customer feedback during the initial launch of the
Enterprise Edition of Backupify for Google Apps in August. With larger
organizations receiving automated backups three times per day, Backupify has
remained committed to providing enterprise-level organizations with the
industry's most trustworthy and comprehensive backup and restore solution.

"This year Google Apps in the enterprise space has reached new heights and
we'll continue to see enterprise-level organizations migrating to the cloud in
increasing numbers," said Rob May, CEO and co-founder of Backupify. "Larger
organizations like the Museum of Modern Art, the Financial Times, Jawbone,
Park Hotels and Auberge Resorts, and leading academic institutions like
Berklee College of Music and Rice University trust Backupify to safeguard
their Google Apps data. As we work with these organizations to ensure they
always have a secure second copy of their data, we've developed better tools
that give more control to the administrator while managing multiple sets of
daily backups."

Backupify for Google Apps now includes the following advanced data management
and admin controls for enterprise organizations:

  Multiple Administrator Management provides enterprise organizations with
  multiple administrators across different departments, business lines and
  locations with a central portal to manage a Backupify account. Now, a
  company can empower multiple Backupify Administrators to easily and securely
  add users, or initiate a restore or export on behalf of their end users.

  Audit Logs provide a comprehensive audit log, which allows administrators to
  monitor all actions within their Backupify account, including those taken by
  both the administrator and end users. Each log entry includes action type,
  action description, username, IP address and timestamp.

  Subdomain Management allows administrators to easily add and securely manage
  the backups for multiple Google Apps subdomains from one Backupify account,
  providing the three times daily backups to all existing accounts under the
  parent domain.

"Backupify makes it easy for our administrators to manage the growing number
of Google Apps users and data within our organizational structure," said Dave
Ouyang, IT Manager at leading residential solar company, Sungevity, Inc. "Our
confidence in Backupify is based on its ongoing developments with Google Apps
as Sungevity continues to grow. With Backupify, our mission critical data is
always being backed up across the company no matter how many users we add to
the cloud."

The new release comes on the heels of the company's rapid growth in 2012. With
more than 5,000 paying business customers to date, Backupify reached the
following milestones in the past six months:

  oGrew data under management to more than 900TB
