Additional Backup & Recovery for Google Apps and Salesforce Liberates Organisations from Risk of Data Loss, Enables Users to Operate Fearlessly in the Cloud

AUSTIN, TX and WELLINGTON, NEW ZEALAND – November 20 2014 — / — Today, Spanning® Cloud Apps, the most trusted provider of data backup and recovery for cloud applications, and Fronde, an Australasia technology leader, announced a strategic partnership that will help to liberate organisations from the risk of data loss.

The partnership meets the growing demand from Australian and New Zealand businesses for additional protection against data loss as they rapidly adopt Software as a Service applications, like Google Apps and Salesforce.

Fronde’s implementation of Spanning’s automated, daily backup solution will give their customers an extra layer of protection to help mitigate the risk of data loss caused by user error, hackers or system error and ultimately improve business efficiency. Fronde sees the cloud-to-cloud backup service as a natural extension of their growing cloud product portfolio and positions them as a market leader in the delivery of data protection and availability services for their customers.

James Valentine, Chief Technology Officer, Fronde, says that Australian and New Zealand companies are shifting their operations to the cloud at a faster rate than anywhere in the world.

“This means greater importance must be placed on offering clients a comprehensive backup and recovery solution to protect their essential corporate data.

“The decision to add Spanning to our product portfolio was an easy one as it offers the only solution capable of providing – at the user level – complete visibility into the backup and recovery process. This additional layer of backup puts the end user in control of their own data recovery, should it ever be needed, empowering them to manage their own data risks while freeing up IT administration teams,” says Valentine.

Garrett Jones, VP of Sales, Spanning, says that Spanning is expanding into new markets.

“We have been keen to build relationships with Australian and New Zealand businesses because of the region’s admirable history of being hungry for the latest and greatest technologies.

“By working closely with Fronde to help them bring Spanning Backup to their Google Apps and Salesforce customers, we expect this combination to be market-leading,” says Jones.
