Online backup and recovery is an important market offering for small businesses that often have limited or nonexistent on site IT staff to assist when systems go down. These companies need the same industry-strength storage and backup solutions as enterprises, but without the hefty price tag or labor overhead. That’s where KineticD comes in.
KineticD (formerly Data Deposit Box) is a Toronto-based company that provides continuous backup, restore, sharing, and access services for SMBs. Back in 2002, Data Deposit Box came to market to address a growing market for online data protection with a patented continuous recovery system for the data held on business-critical PCs and servers. Over the next eight years, the company paid attention to the way its customers, mainly small and midsize businesses, were using the service. The results led to the launch of a new set of solutions targeted at not only insuring protection of key business data but also providing remote access to that data and the applications that powered them.
Today, KineticD provides backup and remote access to more than 40,000 users in over 15,000 businesses. The secure online backup and remote access solutions can be used by businesses of any size, but resonate particularly well in the small business market. With its software-as-a-service model, KineticD provides added flexibility and ease of use and management for small businesses. New applications for the iPhone and iPad extend the functionality of secure remote backup and access to two of the newest productivity devices for the mobile business user.
