Carbonite, Inc. Launches Carbonite Pro, Online Backup for Small Business
Simple solution allows small businesses to easily back up and get back valuable data
BOSTON -- Carbonite, Inc., today announced Carbonite Pro, a version of its market-leading online backup service specifically designed for small businesses. Carbonite Pro is aimed at companies that want to protect the data on all their PCs easily and inexpensively. There is a free trial available at www.CarbonitePro.com.
Carbonite already backs up data for more than 100,000 small businesses that use the Carbonite® consumer product, which offers unlimited backup for $54.95 per year per computer. Carbonite found business users had different requirements from consumers, so Carbonite Pro includes many new features that small businesses have requested.
"Small businesses don't always do a very good job of backing up their office computers," said Carbonite CEO and co-founder David Friend. "So, many of them have been turning to Carbonite as a way to easily and inexpensively back up their laptop and desktop computers. Now we have a version of Carbonite that incorporates everything that these small-business users have been asking for: no per-PC fees, administrative tools that are simple enough for any office manager to use, the ability to back up external drives and priority support. Nobody wants to spend a lot of time or money backing up computers, so we've made Carbonite Pro a simple and affordable online backup service for businesses."
Simplicity. One doesn't need a technical background to use Carbonite Pro. Getting started is quick and hassle-free.
Security. Files are encrypted before they leave the employees' computers. They are stored safely offsite at the Carbonite state-of-the-art data centers. If an employee leaves the company, the administrator can quickly disable his or her access to backups.
Affordable data protection. Carbonite Pro starts with a free one-month trial and continues with a simple tiered pricing structure based on how much data a business chooses to store. There are no licensing, set-up or per-computer fees. Full pricing information can be found at www.CarbonitePro.com.
Centralized administration. Carbonite Pro protects data across the company with little ongoing effort. An administrator dashboard makes it easy to see the status of every employee's backup.
Back it up. Get it back.(TM) Backing up is important. But quickly recovering lost files is even more important. When disaster strikes, the Restore Wizard guides you step-by-step to recover lost or damaged files. Priority phone support, live-chat and email support gets you quick answers to questions or problems.
Remote access. Carbonite Pro customers can log into their accounts on CarbonitePro.com from any computer with an internet connection and download any file in their backups.
The Carbonite industry-first offer of unlimited online backup for a flat, low price revolutionized the market for consumer and small business backup services. Since 2006, the company has backed up more than 39 billion files and has restored more than 3.2 billion lost files for its customers. Carbonite backs up more than 100 million files every day to high-redundancy storage servers in its Boston and Somerville, Mass. data centers.
