Business continuity leader protects critical cloud data via strategic partnership with Spanning

BURLINGTON, Mass., March 1, 2018 — / — Unitrends, the global leader of all-in-one enterprise backup and continuity solutions, today announced expanded cloud backup solutions for Microsoft Office 365, Google G Suite, and Salesforce through a new technology partnership with Spanning Cloud Apps. This key partnership between two leaders in cloud backup will enable customers to protect critical software-as-as-service (SaaS) data without slowing performance or overburdening their IT staff.

“Both Unitrends and Spanning enable enterprises to have peace of mind about their data by providing enterprise-class backup and recovery software that’s well designed and easy to use,” said Paul Brady, CEO of Unitrends. “As our customers increasingly rely on cloud-based SaaS applications, their data protection needs could become more complex. Spanning Backup solutions reduce that complexity by bringing Office 365, G Suite and Salesforce into our portfolio of data protection.”

“Organizations of all sizes are coming to the realization that backup for their SaaS application data is critical, both to recover from data loss and for compliance reasons,” said Jeff Erramouspe, CEO of Spanning. “We believe that the backup and recovery of SaaS data should be as simple as possible. Data protection doesn’t need to be complicated and data loss doesn’t need to be a data disaster. We’re thrilled to partner with Unitrends to bring the benefits of Spanning Backup for Office 365, Salesforce and G Suite to more customers around the globe.”

“As more of our customers and end users depend on enterprise cloud applications, it’s critical that we help them protect their data no matter it where resides,” said Brady. “Often this begins with educating users that the advantages of SaaS does not include protecting data from deletion, user error, ransomware, or malicious employees. Spanning Backup solutions makes it easy for our customers to protect and recover compromised critical cloud data.”

Spanning Backup for Office 365 is available from Unitrends today with Spanning Backup for Salesforce and Spanning Backup for G Suite to be released later in 2018. A free trial is available at

Spanning solutions will be available through authorized Unitrends resellers.
