Leading Real Estate and Construction Firms Demand Premium Data Backup and Recovery Solution

New York, NY, March 27, 2012 –/– BUMI (Backup My Info!), the premium provider of online backup and recovery solutions for small to mid-sized businesses, today announced the signing of its 40th real estate client. Cohen Brothers Realty Corp, a premier private real estate and management firm, joins a growing roster of real estate customers, including Lee & Associates and Forsgate Industrial Properties.

BUMI’s announcement revealed that real estate and construction represents one of its largest customer bases alongside financial services and legal services. The nature of the real estate industry makes it an ideal candidate for BUMI’s backup and recovery services. Real estate and construction are characterized by project-oriented transactions that include sensitive financial information and accumulate more aggregate data that needs to be managed and protected. Real estate also supports a high percentage of remote offices, whose access to central information is not always secure and may compromise data being transferred and stored.

“As BUMI grows, we’re seeing clear data trends within certain industries,” said Jennifer Walzer, CEO of BUMI. “The way the real estate, construction and architecture industries are structured leaves them vulnerable to data loss, which is why we’ve seen such a high demand and why we’ve tailored solutions specifically for this space.”

Cohen Brothers, which was founded over 50 years ago to develop premier properties in prime locations, initially chose BUMI competitor Iron Mountain over BUMI because Iron Mountain was able to offer a cheaper price point, but when Iron Mountain failed to support Cohen Brothers’ new Exchange 2010 server, the real estate firm engaged BUMI for their backup and recovery needs.

“We found out that a lower price isn’t always cheaper,” said Anthony Manzo, IT director for Cohen Brothers. “If you’re not being covered the way you need to be covered, you’ll pay for it in other ways. With BUMI, our backup and recovery needs are identified, met and continually supported. Now, I’m confident that our Exchange server is well protected, and, apart from being smart business, peace of mind is priceless.”

Lee & Associates, the fourth largest commercial real estate sales organization in the country, engaged BUMI to back up the main server of its New Jersey location, which all 25 employees of the Little Falls-based real estate firm use to store documents, correspondence, financial records, QuickBooks files and presentations, as well as their clients’ financial accounting records, leases and legal documents. The latter is critical to the real estate company’s success.

“We handle a lot of bookkeeping and accounting for our clients,” said Vice President and Principal Jason Lynch. “We store all of their files, which can include years of accounting records. If we permanently lost that data, we’d be out of business.”
