Inaugural global customer event features customer-led sessions, educational workshops and keynote by Bill Nye

MINNEAPOLIS, MN — Aug 23, 2016 — / — Code42, the leader in modern endpoint backup, today released further details about Evolution16, the company’s first global customer conference that will bring together IT and data security experts to focus on the important role endpoint backup and real-time recovery plays in securing the modern enterprise. Evolution will take place September 20-22, 2016, at The Cosmopolitan in Las Vegas.

“Our customers’ endpoint data security is at the heart of everything we do,” said Joe Payne, president and CEO of Code42. “Every day we help them deal with an ever-changing array of data protection and security challenges. At Evolution, we’re excited to focus on our customers’ success as well share new innovations that will maximize the value of their Code42 deployment today and in the future.”

The two-day conference will feature a keynote address from science educator and engineer Bill Nye titled, “Three Big Ideas to Change the World.” “The only thing we can count on in nature and in business is that things are going to change. If your business doesn’t have change built in, you won’t be competitive. Good designs invite good outcomes, and those designs must have the ability to adapt built in,” said Nye.

At Evolution, Code42 will celebrate its inaugural customer awards program, The Evolutionaries, which recognize the achievements of Code42 customers. Award categories include best large-scale deployment, innovator of the year, and best endpoint backup replacement. Nominations are now being accepted and winners will be announced at the conference.

“This is an incredible opportunity for us to bring our customers together so we can all learn from each other,” said Karen Pisha, senior vice president of customer success at Code42. “Our hope is that they come away inspired with new ideas about how to use the Code42 platform to help them secure their organizations and gain greater insight into how we can help them.”

Evolution attendees can choose from more than 25 sessions aimed at educating Code42 customers on getting more out of their Code42 CrashPlan deployment, as well as networking opportunities and hands-on labs. For customers who want additional training, there are two different pre-conference educational workshops led by the Code42 education team.
