OAKDALE, Minn. -- With more than 50 years of leadership in data storage, Imation Corp. (NYSE:IMN), today announced the DataGuard Vault(TM) online backup and recovery service - a nationwide enterprise-class service for small- to medium-sized businesses (SMBs), and remote offices and branch offices (ROBOs). DataGuard Vault online backup and recovery service automatically secures files and transfers them off-site to a class-one data center through the Internet or private network connection
-- providing SMBs and ROBOs with an efficient, cost-effective, 24x7 option for data storage backup and recovery, backed by a dependable 24x7x365 support team.
"To ensure that their data is securely backed up, stored offsite and quickly recovered, SMBs may invest in expensive equipment and software, staff to manage the process and additional offsite services," said James Milligan, general manager, Commercial and OEM Division, Imation. "Unfortunately, many SMBs simply don't -- or can't -- implement appropriate data backup and protection processes, which are critical to ensuring an SMB's business continuity. Similarly, large organizations have high-end backup processes for their headquarter locations, but their field employees or individual retail stores may not have as robust backup solutions for this critical data. Imation's DataGuard Vault online backup and recovery service gives both types of organizations an easy and affordable option to ensure that their company's data is always backed up and fully recoverable."
