Paragon Software Chosen by PortSys for Backup, Disaster Recovery

PortSys has integrated Drive Backup 9 Server Edition into its security appliances, and will also offer it as an upgrade to existing customers, which include some of the world’s largest financial institutions, government ministries, defense departments, healthcare organizations, and industry-leading enterprises.

According to Michael Oldham, CEO of PortSys, “PortSys’ products leverage award-winning Microsoft security solutions to provide the strongest application-level security available. We then further enhance these products by including software that increases the application value, such as Paragon’s, and finally add our advanced appliance management technologies to create powerful, turn key security appliances. We selected Paragon Drive Backup to replace Acronis® True Image Server due to the software’s relatively simple functionality for backup, restore and backup scheduling, as well as its ability to backup to and restore from a backup capsule to the local drive.”

PortSys believes support is critical to the long-term relationships they build with their customers. As such, they need reliable solutions in the field. By incorporating Paragon Drive Backup into its solutions, PortSys is able to make end users more self-sufficient and empower them with local and immediate recovery solutions, which are critical for enterprise-level business/network operations.
