More than 20 universities enrolled in the NET+ CrashPlan cloud backup service
MINNEAPOLIS, MN – February 09, 2016 — /BackupReview.info/ — Code42 and Internet2 are pleased to announce that Internet2 NET+ CrashPlan, a customized endpoint backup service for U.S. higher education institutions, continues to expand its deployments and is now a generally available service in the NET+ portfolio. The service provides a secure and simple method for colleges and universities to rapidly deploy Code42’s endpoint backup service to their students, faculty and staff, helping reduce data loss and speed data recovery.
“In the age of breach, end-to-end data protection is a critical component of higher ed data security strategies,” said Shel Waggener, senior vice president for Internet2. “We are pleased that Code42 NET+ CrashPlan is part of the NET+ portfolio, providing a critical service to end users at interested member institutions as they seek solutions to protect their most precious resource—data.”
More than 20 universities have signed onto the NET+ CrashPlan endpoint backup service since it launched as an early adopter service in 2013, including Boston University, Emory University, Massachusetts Institute of Technology, North Carolina State University, University of Notre Dame, Princeton University, Rice University, Stanford University and University of Alabama in Huntsville.
“We cannot risk losing intellectual property to hard drive crashes and deleted files, not to mention the productivity drain that comes when users lose their work. For us, having a consistent, reliable endpoint backup solution is critical,” said Brian Anderson, director of information technology for Boston University’s College of Arts and Sciences. “Now, with NET+ CrashPlan, when users experience loss of a device or file, CrashPlan restores their data quickly and completely—it has our users’ backs, every time.”
Working across all platforms, including Mac, Windows and Linux, Code42 CrashPlan backs up data produced anywhere, on any device, with no user intervention to initiate backup and no disruptions to device performance. In fact, one IT administrator can manage the data of thousands of users via a single console.
To reach Internet2’s “general availability” status, Code42 invested in new processes and product features specific to the needs of higher education institutions, including:
“Be it a senior philosophy thesis, physics experiment results or medical research papers, the data stored on computers by higher education students, faculty and staff represents hours of work, and losing this data can be devastating to its owners,” said Karen Pisha, senior vice president of customer success at Code42. “We have features and services designed to secure the data for our higher education clients. Internet2 has been a tremendous partner in supporting this important group of customers.”
