OwnBackup Wins the 2018 Salesforce Appy Award

September 25, 2018

San Francisco, CA – September 25, 2018 – OwnBackup, a leading data backup and recovery vendor, was presented with the annual Salesforce Appy Award, by Mike Rosenbaum, EVP of CRM Applications, at the Dreamforce 2018 AppExchange Keynote. The Appy Award recognizes one AppExchange partner annually for their commitment to customer success, industry innovation, and generating momentum across the Salesforce ecosystem. OwnBackup is an AppExchange partner that has reimagined data protection in the cloud.

Selected by the AppExchange leadership team, the second annual award was accepted by Sam Gutmann, CEO of OwnBackup. “We’re incredibly proud be named the winner of the 2018 Appy Award. At OwnBackup, we work hard to bring data integrity and protection to the forefront of the Salesforce ecosystem,” said Sam Gutmann, CEO of OwnBackup. “Our solution is an invaluable component of the shared data protection responsibility model. Salesforce has an amazing platform, but we know that user-inflicted data loss can still occur, which is where OwnBackup delivers critical value within the ecosystem.”

OwnBackup stands out for the depth of their partnership with Salesforce and for customer-focused innovations that raise the bar on data protection within the Salesforce ecosystem. The need for SaaS disaster recovery services extends across every industry. All companies should have a comprehensive data protection plan in place in order to prevent user-inflicted data loss and corruption.

In response to customer requests, OwnBackup has also announced OwnBackup Archiver, which is a new product that allows users optimize their Salesforce platform by archiving data & attachments that are no longer needed in production, to address regulatory compliance, and improve Salesforce performance.

OwnBackup's Fall ‘18 release also includes Blockchain Verify. This is a key capability for OwnBackup's customers who are in highly-regulated industries or subject to GDPR, HIPAA, or SEC Rule 17a-4. These customers must be able to provide irrefutable evidence that their backups have not been changed.
