Decho Announces General Availabiliy of MozyPro Online Backup for Mac-powered Businesses
Hundreds of businesses, including Ogilvy and Mather, have already adopted MozyPro for Mac
SEATTLE, Washington - December 11, 2008 - Decho Corporation, an EMC Company (NYSE: EMC), today announced the general availability of the MozyPro® for Mac online backup service. Tailored for businesses using Mac desktops, notebooks and servers, MozyPro for Mac provides simple, automatic and secure online backup of critical business information, protecting against hard drive failure, computer loss or theft and natural disaster.
"We run a large number of Macs, and needed a business-caliber solution that was easy to deploy and cost-effective," said Jeffrey Bonacci, senior creative systems engineer at Ogilvy and Mather. "Now, more than ever, we need to know that our intellectual assets are not vulnerable to theft, failure or disaster. We cannot afford to lose information on any one of our employee’s Macs. MozyPro gives us peace of mind, knowing that the information crucial to our business is protected."
MozyPro for Mac builds on the highly successful MozyHome® for Mac service released earlier this year and underscores the company’s strong commitment to the fast-growing Mac market. The number of customers using Mozy™ on a Mac has grown by 65 percent in the last six months and the company is optimistic about seeing similar success among Mac-powered businesses. In fact, analyst Charlie Wolf of Needham Co. has noted that Apple tripled its share of the small business market earlier this year between the second and third quarters.
MozyPro for Mac helps Mac-powered businesses protect their critical information assets. According to the National Archives and Records Administration in Washington, D.C., 93 percent of companies that lost their data for 10 days or more due to a disaster filed for bankruptcy within one year of the disaster. Of those companies, 50 percent filed for bankruptcy immediately.
Hundreds of businesses have already adopted MozyPro for Mac since the service entered public beta in September of this year. MozyPro allows businesses to manage backup and restore processes for all their Mac computers (as well as any Windows-based PCs) from a single, Web-based administration console. The general availability release boosts upload speeds, adds support for mounted network drives and simplifies administration.
"Our business customers value MozyPro for Mac because it was built by Mac engineers for Mac end-users and includes the features business customers require,” said Vance Checketts, chief operating officer at Decho Corp. “One key differentiator from MozyHome is that MozyPro for Mac provides a single administrative web-based dashboard to manage backup and restores across multiple operating systems."
