Profiled On Medium.com

Thanks to Phil at medium.com for profiling us in this Dec 2018 post.

It’s difficult sometimes to be noticed in the shadow of the United States, who’s market is ten times as big as the Canadian market.

Our backup market is clearly the Canadian market and those businesses and organizations that understand the pressing need to keep data within Canadian borders.

Due to our PIPEDA compliance, our customers tend to be Lawyers, Not for Profits, Accountants and Bookkeepers, and other businesses that deal with personal information that needs to stay in Canada.

If you are looking for a 100% Canadian backup service please reach out to us. We can set you up with a free trial for you to see how our cloud backup can work for you.

I don’t think about it, I don’t worry about it, it just happens automatically.
Well actually I do think about. That is, I review the backup notification every morning just to confirm everything got backed up as expected, Mostly it has and so the review is really a glance and delete the email. Takes all of 2 seconds. Read More
