Add WinBackup 2.0 Professional Released


WinBackup 2.0 Professional delivers ease of use, superior performance, guaranteed reliability, reduced cost of ownership, full features and wide backup media coverage.

7th September 2005 – Uniblue Systems, a leading provider of backup and recovery management software for the SoHo and SMB market, today announced the release of WinBackup 2.0 Professional.

The latest market research shows that about 60% of small and medium sized businesses (SMBs) do not backup and are thus prone to the threats of data loss arising from human error, hard drive crashes, hardware failures, virus attacks, theft and other adverse conditions. Central to any Information Security strategy and architecture is a powerful backup and recovery management solution. WinBackup 2.0 Professional allows SMBs to regularly and faithfully reproduce their continually evolving data assets and to recover these assets when and if disaster strikes.

WinBackup 2.0 Professional focuses on reducing the time to setup and administer regular backups through an easy-to-use and powerful software. Its intuitive graphical user interface allows users to set-up backups and restores immediately at the click of a button. With its new compression engine, WinBackup 2.0 is one of the fastest backup and recovery management solutions available to SMBs. The enhanced encryption and data verification algorithms also guarantee data security, integrity and accuracy of restores. WinBackup 2.0 is a cost-effective software package that has a wide variety of features and allows the backup of data on home computers, workstations and laptops to a variety of media including CD/DVD, Tape, hard drives and shared resources.

Backup Needs of SMB:
“Businesses are becoming aware of the importance of backing up their data to prevent data loss”, said Bosse Malmberg, Chief Executive Officer at Uniblue. “They want powerful protection for their data and minimum downtime when disaster strikes. Moreover, their business demands that they are up and running 24x7, so the time-window available for implementing a backup strategy is becoming smaller and smaller”.

“The release of WinBackup 2.0 Professional marks an important milestone for Uniblue”, continues Malmberg. “We felt that the previous version of WinBackup would not be able to give our customers the performance and reliability that they need today. These needs call for a highly sophisticated backup and recovery management engine that reduces the overall cost of ownership. Also, we believe that a larger number of SMBs will start backing their data, if the software is simple to set up and use. We have spent the past two years in development rewriting the backup and recovery engine from scratch to create an easy-to-use and intuitive product that delivers superior performance, guaranteed reliability, value for money, full features and wide backup media coverage”.

Email Backup:
“Email backup and restore is a different kettle of fish” exclaims Malmberg. With file-centric backup companies can only backup and restore single mailbox database files. This just doesn’t do the trick. Restores become long processes with 100% business continuity not being guaranteed. We had to think about providing something over and above file-centric backup. WinBackup Professional 2.0 takes email backup and restore a step further with the WinBackup Outlook Agent which allows users to backup individual emails and folders” states the CEO.

Ease of Use:
WinBackup 2.0 Professional specifically addresses the need to have an easy-to-use backup software. The package has a system of shortcuts to the more popular Windows applications, all common web browsers and email programs, and to the 'Documents and Settings' folder. The Shortcut to Outlook lets employees backup and restore their single mailbox database file, registry settings, user preferences and templates directly. In this way, non-technical users are able to backup all their important data at the click of a button. This shortcut library will be continually updated to further enhance the ease-of-use functionality of WinBackup. The graphical-user interface is also extremely user-friendly and highly intuitive. It has been designed with the aim to allow users to install it within minutes and to start using it immediately. WinBackup minimizes the time to deploy the solution, the need for product training and greatly increases the likelihood of employees backing up their data on a more regular basis.

Performance and Reliability:
The most important focus of WinBackup 2.0 Professional is to ensure that the data is backed up and restored quickly, securely and accurately. Speed becomes critical in avoiding employee downtime during backups and restores. The compression algorithm has been rewritten to increase the speed of backup and restore. The encryption engine ensures complete data protection with varying levels of security including AES 256 bit level encryption. WinBackup 2.0 Professional guarantees data integrity and guarantees 100% accurate restores through bit-level and CRC verification algorithms. WinBackup Outlook Agent and the Outlook Shortcuts also guarantee 100% accuracy of email restore. The software provides SMBs with the functionality of enterprise-level software solutions and contains specific features that minimize the overall burden on profits thus greatly reducing overall cost of ownership.

WinBackup 2.0 is available immediately through the Uniblue Partner Network members and directly from the Uniblue Website. Trial versions are available free-of-charge from the Uniblue Website. WinBackup 2.0 is offered in two editions at the following list prices:
