Starting at $70 a month, businesses of all sizes can now afford an active shield against today’s rising cyber threats

SAN ANTONIO, TX – April 26, 2016 — / — Rackspace spin-off Jungle Disk today announced the industry’s first Data Threat Protection™ service for ‘Main Street,’ combining robust network security with encrypted data backup and file sharing. Designed for organizations with 2-250 people, the comprehensive solution is simple and affordable, offering enterprise-grade protection from ransomware, malware, viruses, bots, denial-of-service attacks and other sophisticated cyber-attacks now frequently targeting small and mid-sized businesses (SMBs).

While all businesses and consumers are vulnerable to ransomware and other digital attacks, SMBs face greater risks because of their limited resources and technical expertise. Jungle Disk’s Data Threat Protection service was designed specifically for these businesses, offering the multi-layered protection that large enterprises rely on, without the costs and complexity associated with designing, building and operating on-premises systems. Jungle Disk has also released a free online Shield Test that analyzes—in just 60 seconds—a business’s risk versus seven data threats.

Jungle Disk spun out of Rackspace in early 2016 and has raised $11 million in equity funding to date. The company’s new Data Threat Protection solution does not require any equipment purchases or annual contracts and can be activated online in less than five minutes. The starter Data Threat Protection bundle includes Jungle Disk Unified Threat Management – Lite for one office location and Jungle Disk Data Backup Service for five employees:

  • Jungle Disk Unified Threat Management includes:
    • A cloud-based service that includes firewall, virtual private network (VPN) remote access, data leak prevention, anti-malware defense, web content filtering, botnet protection, DDoS defense, intrusion prevention, active threat protection, application control, and secure Wi-Fi with separate company and guest access networks all powered by a combination of Jungle Disk and My Digital Shield technology
    • Free online Shield Test that analyzes a business’s risk versus 7 data threats in 60 seconds

    • No file size or backup storage limits
    • Customizable retention policies and schedules including real-time continuous backup
    • Configuration options to allow Android® or iPhone® mobile data access

“The risks to ‘Main Street’ businesses such as realtors, doctors, CPAs and lawyers are rising at unprecedented rates, yet many of these organizations are paralyzed due to the cost and limitations of today’s security solutions,” said Bret Piatt, CEO of Jungle Disk. “Now, for an easy to afford $70 a month, Jungle Disk can protect any office network and backup the most important information encrypted in a high security cloud data center.”

As the pioneer of secure encrypted cloud based backup services, Jungle Disk has earned the trust of more than 25,000 businesses. “Encrypted data backup is the foundation of a data threat protection solution and it is required by regulation in all businesses that handle sensitive information,” said Philbert Shih, managing director, Structure Research.

“We began using Jungle Disk Data Backup after our first NAS failure in 2011 and since then the encrypted backup solution has saved our business multiple times. We added the network protection and now have great confidence in our data security thanks to Jungle Disk,” said George Karutz, general partner of Pasadera Capital.
