New Nasuni Access Anywhere offering extends the edge from the data center to the user enabling employees to securely access and collaborate on file data from anywhere

BOSTON, MA – August 18, 2022 — / / — Nasuni Corporation, the leader in file data services, today announced the availability of Nasuni Access Anywhere, a secure, high-performance file solution for hybrid and remote workers. The new add-on service makes Nasuni the first file data platform to address the security and performance needs of the distributed workforce.

With Nasuni Access Anywhere, enterprises can extend the Nasuni File Data Platform to deliver high-performance file access for remote and hybrid users along with productivity tools that let them manage files from anywhere, on any device. This new add-on service delivers a secure VPN-less solution that provides resilient access to files from any location, even in high-latency environments. It also enables employees to share files and folders with clients, contractors and partners with enforced file security. In addition, the popularity of Microsoft 365, Microsoft Teams and Slack is creating more demand for workflow integration with an organization’s file shares. Nasuni Access Anywhere ensures that corporate file shares can be accessed directly within Microsoft Teams, Microsoft 365 and Slack facilitating frictionless collaboration all through a single platform.

Key capabilities include:

  • VPN-less access to corporate file shares: Provides secure, reliable connectivity via the Internet, supporting local performance and visibility to all files without a VPN.
  • Offline access with desktop sync: Employees can use the desktop file system for working offline and the solution will automatically sync all files to the corporate file share when connectivity is restored.
  • Microsoft 365, Microsoft Teams and Slack integration: Store, search, browse and edit files from within key collaboration applications while being connected to corporate files on a single data platform.
  • Secure external file collaboration: Users can securely share and receive content with external parties without compromising control, performance or security.
  • File transfer acceleration: Employees can upload and download files with remarkable speed even from home and remote locations.

Hybrid and remote work are here to stay. Nearly one-quarter (24%) of employees expect to work fully remote while more than half (53%) anticipate a hybrid work arrangement, according to a recent Gallup poll. Unfortunately, remote workers and employees working in offices with limited infrastructure face significant productivity challenges. Network connectivity may be low and connections may have high latency, which makes sustained access and sharing of files difficult. Using a VPN to gain a secure connection may add to performance problems and as a result, employees often save critical file data offline, putting the data at risk and making shared file access even more challenging.

“The world of work has changed forever, and business runs on file data. Enterprises can no longer rely on hardware-based network-attached storage (NAS) – a 20-year-old technology. They need a cloud-based approach that makes data accessible from anywhere and secures it from any threat,” said David Grant, president of Nasuni. “Nasuni is a single, secure file data platform that transforms file infrastructure into data services. Now, with Nasuni Access Anywhere, our platform provides secure access to file data from anywhere.”

“Nasuni backed by Azure object storage is our corporate file data platform, Microsoft Teams is our project collaboration platform and [this solution] is our bridge that connects the two,” said customer Todd Dughman, director of information technology, associate at U.S. civil engineering, surveying and landscape architecture firm Teague Nall and Perkins, Inc.

New study finds a growing need to juggle the historical data backup challenges of environment heterogeneity and data volume growth with newly emerging cybersecurity, automation, and cloud transformation initiatives

BELLEVUE, WA – August 16, 2022 — / / — Today, Bocada, a backup monitoring and reporting automation company, released findings from the company’s study, “Backup Monitoring Trends Report: Key Factors Influencing Data Protection Evolutions.” The report uncovers the issues impacting backup protection today, and the key issues driving future resource planning.

Featuring commissioned survey findings from over 260 global IT professionals responsible for managing and/or influencing backup operations within their organizations, the study asked respondents about current challenges, issues they anticipate impacting their category, and how broader automation, cloud, and cybersecurity trends are influencing their future planning.

Key survey insights include:

  • Backup environment heterogeneity and data volume growth will continue driving backup monitoring difficulties. Securing data across backup applications is the most-cited backup management challenge, followed by protecting growing data volume.
  • The shift to cloud-dominant backup operations is coming. Backup professionals expect over 60% of their operations to transition to the cloud within three years. This dynamic is likely leading to backup professionals citing cloud backup oversight as a top backup management concern.
  • Automation is lagging in the backup management category…but on the horizon. Nearly two-thirds of backup professionals report zero automation applied to recurring backup management activities. But nearly 50% anticipate at least some automation implementation over the next two years.
  • Backup operations will become more closely tied to cybersecurity. 47% of backup professionals expect greater incorporation of backup monitoring within cybersecurity programs. This makes it the number one trend they anticipate impacting their category in the next 3-5 years.

“What’s remarkable about these findings is that they show increasing complexity entering the backup management space,” said Matt Hall, Bocada’s CEO. “Age-old backup monitoring challenges like environment complexity and data volume growth will continue to plague data protection professionals, all while they are expected to manage cloud transformations, cybersecurity, and automation initiatives. Unless they find solutions to centrally manage these moving pieces, critical data will be at risk.”

Average AEC Company Increased File Storage by 31.2% CAGR in Four Years

MOUNTAIN VIEW, Calif. – Aug. 15, 2022 — / / — Egnyte, the most secure platform for content collaboration and governance, today released its AEC Data Insights Report. The study is based on an analysis of data trends among more than 3,000 customers in the Architecture, Engineering, and Construction (AEC) industry, which has experienced exploding growth in data volume and usage. On average, Egnyte’s AEC customers increased storage by 31.2 percent compound annual growth rate (CAGR) from 2017 to 2021.

While Egnyte serves a diverse range of industries that require varying amounts of storage, the average AEC firm stores more data in the platform than customers in other industries like Real Estate, Retail, Manufacturing, and Life Sciences. According to the report, the typical AEC firm manages 149 percent (2.49x) more files than the cross-industry average. In addition, AEC firms interact with these files on a more frequent basis than other sectors, which can lead to several usability and management issues.

“The flood of AEC data that is collected, shared, and managed throughout the design and build process – coupled with the high level of engagement in terms of link and document sharing – can make it difficult for firms to secure their content effectively without disrupting productivity,” said Ronen Vengosh, Vice President of AEC at Egnyte. “The findings of our study, in line with other industry reports, indicate that AEC firms are coming to rely on data storage at a rapid rate. The industry will need to address the challenges associated with this pace of growth by leveraging data management tools like workflow automation and internal/external risk management.”

Egnyte’s AEC Data Insights Report also identifies the following key trends:

  • Data sprawl is a growing challenge. The number of individual files stored by AEC firms grew by 23.4 percent CAGR from 2017 to 2021 as they rely on larger file types from various sources, such as drone footage and 3D imagery.
  • Usage patterns vary widely across disciplines. General Contractors share files at a higher rate than any other discipline (Architecture, Engineering, Owners, and Specialty Contractors).
  • Data security issues vary by company size and discipline. Egnyte flagged a staggering growth of ‘high-severity’ data issues from Q4 2020 to Q4 2021, a 325% increase across all AEC domains.

The full report findings, as well as best practices in data management, can be found here —

Egnyte’s AEC practice will also discuss the results during a webinar on Aug. 18, 2022, joined by industry experts from Brasfield & Gorrie, AON, and AXA XL —

Joint integration redacts confidential data from files exfiltrated by high-risk and departing employees

Minneapolis, MN — August 10, 2022 — / / — Code42 Software, Inc., the Insider Risk Management (IRM) leader, today announced that it is working with Nullafi, a leader in real-time sensitive data detection and protection, to restrict access to regulated data – financial, healthcare, Personally Identifiable Information (PII) – or other sensitive data that may be accidentally or maliciously exposed by insiders. By limiting the PII, regulated and sensitive data that teams and employees are able to see, organizations that are required to comply with regulatory requirements are now better protected from data theft, leakage, inadvertent access and improper downloading by departing employees and other high-risk users.

The integration between the Code42 Incydr™ product and Nullafi ShieldTM detects, intercepts and redacts certain data across corporate applications and systems, like customer relationship management (CRM), human capital management and business intelligence (BI) tools. Using natural language policies rather than traditional methods of classification, security teams can apply the granular data access controls needed to ensure high-risk segments of insiders see only the data necessary to perform their jobs.

“Today, nearly three-quarters of organizations don’t know what data departing employees take to other companies when they leave. Because all data is important, it’s critical that IRM solutions ensure IP as well as regulated data, like PII and other sensitive business data, is not misused, leaked or stolen by employees and insiders,” said Ananth Appathurai, senior vice president of strategic partnerships and ecosystem for Code42. “One way to protect regulated data is by controlling who has access to certain information across your systems–and when. This integration allows security teams to stop exfiltration and meet the compliance needs of organizations from regulated industries.”

Specifically, the new integration between Incydr and Nullafi Shield:

  • Proactively obfuscates regulated data from users assigned to an Incydr watchlist by changing an employee’s data access policy in Nullafi Shield.
  • Mitigates risk by redacting predefined data types and fields before they are displayed on a user’s device.
  • Prevents exfiltration and protects regulated data across applications, such as CRM, BI and marketing automation systems.

Code42 Incydr is an Insider Risk Management solution that allows security teams to detect and respond to data exposure and exfiltration from corporate computers, cloud, and email systems in order to stop data leakage and theft without slowing users down. Nullafi Shield is an agentless, Zero Trust data security solution that works at the network layer to detect and redact data across applications, providing security teams with the granular data access controls needed to ensure users see only the data they need to see across all apps they use.

“The combined value proposition of Code42 and Nullafi is extremely compelling for our joint customers using the solution to automatically contain insider risks and threats,” said Robert Yoskowitz, co-founder and CEO of Nullafi. “We couldn’t be prouder to partner with a company like Code42 that is tackling real insider risk issues at a time when the need to protect critical data, intellectual property and digital assets is at an all-time high.”

This is a free integration and is currently available for joint Code42 and Nullafi customers. Learn more about the integration on the Code42 site.

Organizations attending Black Hat 2022 can see the integration in action during live Incydr demos at the Code42 booth #2834.

Over the last year, Cohesity has brought to market new innovative Data Management as a Service (DMaaS) offerings that give enterprise and mid-size customers another radically simple way to manage, secure, protect, and recover their data, while also enjoying exceptional choice and flexibility. These SaaS offerings are managed by Cohesity and hosted on Amazon Web Services (AWS). Cohesity also continued to expand the regions where DMaaS offerings are available globally.

Cohesity continues to be recognized as an innovator, disruptor, and market leader in next-gen data management for the multicloud era. In addition to the Forbes ranking, Cohesity was recently recognized:

  • For the third year in a row, as a Leader in the 2022 Gartner® Magic Quadrant™ for Enterprise Backup and Recovery Software Solutions
  • Among CRN’s 100 Coolest Cloud Companies for the third year in a row
  • As a Leader and an Outperformer in two GigaOm Radar reports: the GigaOm Radar for Hybrid Cloud Data Protection: Large Enterprises, and the GigaOm Radar for Hybrid Cloud Data Protection: Small and Medium-Sized Enterprises. This is the third time Cohesity was named a Leader in the Large Enterprises report.
  • For the second year in a row, as Customers’ Choice in 2022 Gartner® Peer Insights™ ‘Voice of the Customer’: Distributed File Systems and Object Storage

“Cohesity sits at the intersection of three of the highest priority business issues today — cloud, data security, and data management — and we are trusted by 4 of the top 10 Fortune 500, 5 of the top 10 U.S. banks, and 2 of the top 5 global pharma organizations,” says Sanjay Poonen, CEO and president, Cohesity.

“Our placement in the 2022 Forbes Cloud 100, for the fourth year in a row, underscores how we are empowering many of the world’s largest enterprises to leverage our technology to advance data security while dramatically simplifying data management in a hybrid and multicloud world. On behalf of the entire team at Cohesity, I’d like to thank Forbes, Bessemer, and Salesforce Ventures for the Forbes 2022 Cloud 100 recognition,” added Poonen.

For the seventh straight year, the Cloud 100 reviews submissions from hundreds of cloud startups and private companies each year. The Cloud 100 evaluation process involved ranking companies across four factors: market leadership (35%), estimated valuation (30%), operating metrics (20%), and people & culture (15%). For market leadership, the Cloud 100 enlists the help of a judging panel of public cloud company CEOs who assist in evaluating and ranking their private company peers.

“The companies of the Cloud 100 list represent the best and brightest private companies in this fast-growing sector,” said Alex Konrad, senior editor at Forbes. “Every year, it gets more difficult to make this list — meaning even more elite company for those who do. Congratulations to each of the 2022 Cloud 100 honorees.”

“The public markets may be in turmoil, but the private valuations of the Cloud 100 continue to rise. All of the 2022 Cloud 100 honorees, again, have reached the $1 billion valuation milestone, and the average Cloud 100 valuation has skyrocketed to $7.4 billion,” said Mary D’Onofrio, partner at Bessemer Venture Partners. “Despite the market correction in 2022, our confidence in the cloud economy continues to grow—today over 70% of the 2022 Cloud 100 Honorees have reached or exceeded $100 million in annual recurring revenue making them cloud Centaurs. An additional 10% of the list is expected to hit this milestone by the end of the year, furthering our conviction that this years’ honorees truly represent the best cloud companies globally.”

“Great companies are born out of all environments, and it’s exciting to see the continued momentum in the cloud sector,” said Alex Kayyal, Managing Partner, Salesforce Ventures. ”The companies on this list have gone through a rigorous selection process, and join an esteemed alumni list of Cloud 100 companies. As the need for digital transformation continues to drive innovation and efficiencies across industries, we can look to these companies as the absolute best in cloud computing.“

The Forbes 2022 Cloud 100 and 20 Rising Stars lists are published online at Highlights of the list appear in the August/September 2022 issue of Forbes magazine.

The Ocean Observatories Initiative, a research facility in the USA, improves backup performance and recovers full VMs and individual files with NAKIVO Backup & Replication

Sparks, NV – August 10, 2022 — / / — NAKIVO Inc., a fast-growing software company for protecting physical, virtual, and cloud environments, has announced today that the Ocean Observatories Initiative has selected NAKIVO Backup & Replication to protect their environment.

The Ocean Observatories Initiative (OOI) is a research facility composed of science-driven ocean observation platforms and sensors in the Atlantic and Pacific oceans. The instrumented arrays gather physical, chemical, geological, and biological data from the air-sea interface to the seafloor, providing a wealth of information for research and education. The data collected is transmitted through a cyberinfrastructure, making it possible for anyone with an internet connection to download ocean data in real time.

OOI’s infrastructure consists of a multi-petabyte Dell VxRail cluster for production, a second multi-petabyte Dell VxRail cluster for development, a multi-petabyte Dell Isilon for raw data storage, a Dell EMC ML3 tape library, and an Apache Cassandra database cluster. The production virtual machines are responsible for receiving and processing data 24/7 from 800 instruments distributed throughout the ocean through various communication channels. A separate set of virtual machines provides the web interface that allows the public access to view and download data sets. Additionally, OOI has multiple copies of the environment for user acceptance testing and development. The ability to swiftly recover production virtual machines in a disaster situation is absolutely critical to ensure that data remains available.

OOI relies on a tape backup system for protecting their environment. OOI decided to look for an auxiliary VM backup solution to avoid potential bottlenecks when restoring a virtual machine from tape if the tape backup system is occupied with a backup of a multi-PB raw data set. For OOI, the raw data backups should to complete successfully to be archived offsite at regular intervals. With the tape backup system, recovering a single VM swiftly was also difficult without impacting the existing backup schedule. The main criteria for a VM backup solution for OOI was integration with VMWare and the NFS protocol, as well as cloud storage as a backup target.

OOI required an additional solution to build on their tape backup strategy. The main objectives of a new solution were quick backup, instant restore of virtual machines and backup archiving in the cloud for long term storage.

NAKIVO Backup & Replication offered OOI reliable VM backup, fast VM recovery, and ease of management and use. “The deployment of NAKIVO’s Director was extremely easy and I was able to deploy it in our environment in minutes,” says Casey Dinsmoe, DevOps Engineer at the OOI. “The user interface was self-explanatory and I was able to start testing jobs shortly thereafter. Overall, we are happy with the performance and small footprint of NAKIVO Backup & Replication and the product’s ability to back up and recover VMs. Ease of configuration and use, the ability to scale out, as well as the ability to increase parallel backup jobs performance is a big advantage for us.”

“Technical support provided free interactive sessions with technical leads, who provided guidance on the features and configuration of the software. With the assistance of NAKIVO’s technical support team, we were able to quickly scale the product out, in order to deploy a highly resilient and performing VM backup solution,” says Casey. “The deployment of NAKIVO Backup & Replication was simple and technical support provided excellent recommendations on how to leverage the software to take advantage of the high speed storage and networking in our environment. NAKIVO Backup & Replication is a backup solution that provides us with high performance, full VM recovery, and file restore, which can be done in a short time, without interrupting the tape backup system,” says Casey.

“The ability to swiftly back up many multi-TB virtual machines by leveraging VMWare CBT, coupled with the ability to quickly restore a full virtual machine and individual files, has vastly reduced the time needed for us to recover from a virtual machine failure or corruption,” says Casey. “In addition, the ability of NAKIVO Backup & Replication to automatically verify backups provides peace of mind that the backup was not only executed but also executed correctly without corruption, which vastly improves the chances that the backup can be used for recovery in the future.”

“NAKIVO Backup & Replication has helped us save time on backup administration by being extremely straightforward to deploy and operate,” says Casey. “The free consulting sessions with highly trained technicians provided assistance with configuring NAKIVO Backup & Replication, to make the best use of our high speed network and storage, without adding unnecessary load on our production systems. These sessions significantly reduced the time for deployment and provided accelerated training for our IT staff.”

As Tree Top — and its data output — continues to grow, the company turned to 11:11 Systems and iland to modernize and simplify its overall data retention strategy

FAIRFIELD, NJ – August 10, 2022 — / / — 11:11 Systems (“11:11”), a managed infrastructure solutions provider, today announced a new case study with Tree Top.

Tree Top is a grower-owned cooperative committed to producing and innovating world-class fruit products, including top-quality juices, sauces, and premium ingredients. Founded over 60 years ago in the heart of Washington’s apple country, the co-op is now a global business with over 1,000 growers, engineers, and food scientists.

Prior to selecting iland, an 11:11 Systems Company, much of Tree Top’s primary infrastructure was still being backed up on premises via physical disk. In order to implement on-site and off-site storage, and disaster recovery more in line with industry best practices, the company embarked on a project to replace much of its existing legacy infrastructure. Tree Top decided to implement iland Secure Cloud DRaaS for Veeam, iland Secure Cloud Backup for Veeam Cloud Connect, and iland Secure Cloud Backup for Microsoft 365.

Remote and Hybrid Work Demand for Google Workspace, Office 365 and Salesforce Applications Create New Challenges for Security Teams

PALO ALTO, CA – August 9, 2022 — / / — Spin Technology, Inc., developer of the ultimate all-in-one SaaS data protection platform ‘SpinOne’ for mission-critical SaaS apps, today announced it has closed a $16 million Series A round of financing. Blueprint Equity led, with Santa Barbara Venture Partners and Blu Venture Investors also participating. Blueprint Equity’ Sheldon Lewis, Santa Barbara Venture Partners’ Dan Engel, and Blu Venture Investors’ Robert Struble will take seats on Spin’s Board. The new funding will be used to accelerate growth, expand Spin’s SaaS offerings, and grow the company’s marketing, sales, and engineering teams.

Cloud vulnerabilities and cybersecurity concerns have become top enterprise priorities as organizations re-engineer their application stacks to accommodate remote and hybrid work environments and migrate business-critical data and services to the cloud. Many businesses use multiple third-party cloud/SaaS apps to extend and enrich their SaaS environments. As a result, easy access to third-party apps has led to increased data leaks, shadow IT, and compliance risks.

“How we work is now largely defined by where we work, which increasingly means from anywhere rather than from behind an in-office firewall. That’s added a lot of pressure on enterprise security teams to ensure remote and hybrid teams enjoy the flexibility of SaaS applications but remain protected against an ever-broadening threat environment,” said Dmitry Dontov, CEO and Founder, Spin Technology. “SpinOne remedies the problem security teams have created for themselves by cobbling together disparate SaaS security applications. Now your mission-critical SaaS data of the most popular work environments – Google Workspace, Microsoft Office 365, and Salesforce – are entirely protected against threats or data loss.”

Spin Technology’s platform ‘SpinOne’ is an all-in-one SaaS data protection platform designed specifically for mission-critical SaaS apps. SpinOne is a combination of four innovative offerings, including:

  • Ransomware monitoring and response – Automated ransomware protection for SaaS environments that provides 2 hours incident response against ransomware attack on SaaS data, as a result, it reduces recovery costs by as much as 90 percent.
  • Apps risk assessment – Automated risk assessments of cloud SaaS apps and browser extensions reducing the manual efforts of SecOps teams and helping businesses increase their cybersecurity posture.
  • Data leak prevention (DLP) – Understand which data is shared in the cloud and with whom, and get full visibility over your business-critical data in the cloud.
  • Backup and recovery – Compliance friendly enterprise-grade backups to secure cloud environments with versioning and granular recovery capabilities.

“The future of work is now, but the security and backup apparatus needed to support distributed work through SaaS apps has lagged the needs of the market, giving bad actors a broad range of options for exploits,” said Sheldon Lewis, Managing Partner, Blueprint Equity.“Spin has stepped in and created a simple to use, enterprise-strength security and backup solution that delivers for users of the largest SaaS productivity apps, without the complexity of managing security protocols, the anxiety of defending against ransomware, or the costs of data storage.”

An all-in-one dashboard provides a simple single view of cutting-edge cybersecurity and data protection to cloud SaaS environments based on next-generation artificial intelligence (AI) and machine learning (ML). In addition, SpinOne provides industry-leading tools to address modern cybersecurity challenges in cloud SaaS environments.

“Spin Technology is one of those rare companies with the right solution for a rapidly growing market that’s falling-down simple for its customers to use, with a commanding and defensible technology that its competitors just can’t catch,” said Dan Engel, Managing Partner, Santa Barbara Venture Partners. “We’re excited to be a part of the team that came together for this round, and can’t wait to see what Dmitry and his team are going to do with this technology as they bring on even more Fortune list-level customers.”

“Spin aligns well with our cyber portfolio and we look forward to putting our knowledge of the space to work helping Dmitry build upon the tremendous growth Spin has enjoyed thus far,” said Robert Struble, Partner, Blu Venture Investors. “We look forward to being a part of this fast-growing company and helping it deliver the best technology for protecting the critical SaaS applications the world relies on for how we work now and into the future.”

Cautionary Note Regarding Forward-looking Statements

This press release contains forward-looking statements within the meaning of Section 27A of the Securities Act of 1933, as amended, and Section 21E of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, as amended, which involve risks and uncertainties. These forward-looking statements are frequently identified by the use of forward-looking terminology, including the terms “anticipate,” “believe,” “continue,” “could,” “estimate,” “expect,” “intend,” “likely,” “may,” “plan,” “possible,” “potential,” “predict,” “project,” “should,” “target,” “will,” “would,” or other similar terms or expressions that relate to our future performance, expectations, strategy, plans or intentions, and include statements in the section titled “Financial Outlook” and statements regarding the use and impact of our IPO proceeds.

Our actual results could differ materially from those stated in or implied by the forward-looking statements in this press release due to a number of factors, including but not limited to: market competition, including competitors that may have greater size, offerings, and resources; effectively managing growth; disruption in our service or loss of availability of customers’ data; cyberattacks; ability to attract and retain customers; continued growth consistent with historical levels; ability to successfully offer new features on a timely basis; material defects or errors in our software; supply chain disruption; achieve success with our existing and new partnerships; ability to remediate and prevent material weaknesses in our internal controls over financial reporting; the impact of inflation, the COVID-19 pandemic and other factors relating to our business and the business of our customers, partners, vendors, and supply chain; and general market, political, economic, and business conditions. Further information on these and additional risks, uncertainties, assumptions, and other factors that could cause actual results or outcomes to differ materially from those included in or implied by the forward-looking statements contained in this release are included under the caption “Risk Factors” and elsewhere in our final prospectus dated November 10, 2021 as filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission (the “SEC”) pursuant to Rule 424(b)(4) on November 12, 2021 (the “Final Prospectus”), and other filings and reports we make with the SEC from time to time.

The forward-looking statements made in this release reflect our views as of the date of this press release. We undertake no obligation to update any forward-looking statements in this press release, whether as a result of new information, future events or otherwise.

Non-GAAP Financial Measures

To supplement the financial measures prepared in accordance with generally accepted accounting principles (GAAP), we use non-GAAP adjusted gross margin and adjusted EBITDA margin. These non-GAAP financial measures exclude certain items and are not prepared in accordance with GAAP; therefore, the information is not necessarily comparable to other companies and should be considered as a supplement to, not a substitute for, or superior to, the corresponding measures calculated in accordance with GAAP. We present these non-GAAP measures because management believes they are a useful measure of the company’s performance and provide an additional basis for assessing our operating results. Please see the appendix attached to this press release for a reconciliation of non-GAAP adjusted gross margin and adjusted EBITDA margin to the most directly comparable GAAP financial measures.

A reconciliation of non-GAAP guidance measures to corresponding GAAP measures is not available on a forward-looking basis without unreasonable effort due to the uncertainty regarding, and the potential variability of, expenses and other factors in the future. For example, stock-based compensation expense-related charges are impacted by the timing of employee stock transactions, the future fair market value of our common stock, and our future hiring and retention needs, all of which are difficult to predict with reasonable accuracy and subject to constant change.

Adjusted Gross Profit (and Margin)

We believe adjusted gross profit (and margin), when taken together with our GAAP financial results, provides a meaningful assessment of our performance and is useful to us for evaluating our ongoing operations and for internal planning and forecasting purposes.

We define adjusted gross margin as gross profit, exclusive of stock-based compensation expense, depreciation expense of our property and equipment, and amortization expense of capitalized internal-use software included within cost of revenue, as a percentage of adjusted gross profit to revenue. We exclude stock-based compensation, which is a non-cash item, because we do not consider it indicative of our core operating performance. We exclude depreciation expense of our property and equipment and amortization expense of capitalized internal-use software, because these may not reflect current or future cash spending levels to support our business. We believe adjusted gross margin provides consistency and comparability with our past financial performance and facilitates period-to-period comparisons of operations, as this metric eliminates the effects of depreciation and amortization.

Adjusted EBITDA

We define adjusted EBITDA as net loss adjusted to exclude depreciation and amortization, stock-based compensation, interest expense, income tax provision, unrealized loss on SAFE and gain on extinguishment of debt. We use adjusted EBITDA to evaluate our ongoing operations and for internal planning and forecasting purposes. We believe that adjusted EBITDA, when taken together with our GAAP financial results, provides meaningful supplemental information regarding our operating performance by excluding certain items that may not be indicative of our business, results of operations, or outlook. We consider adjusted EBITDA to be an important measure because it helps illustrate underlying trends in our business and our historical operating performance on a more consistent basis.

Non-GAAP Net Income (Loss)
We define non-GAAP net income (loss) as net income adjusted to exclude stock-based compensation and other items we deem non-recurring. We believe that non-GAAP net income (loss), when taken together with our GAAP financial results, provides meaningful supplemental information regarding our operating performance by excluding certain items that may not be indicative of our business, results of operations, or outlook.

Key Business Metrics:

Annual Recurring Revenue (ARR)

We define annual recurring revenue (ARR) as the annualized value of all Backblaze B2 and Computer Backup arrangements as of the end of a period. Given the renewable nature of our business, we view ARR as an important indicator of our financial performance and operating results, and we believe it is a useful metric for internal planning and analysis. ARR is calculated based on multiplying the monthly revenue from all Backblaze B2 and Computer Backup arrangements, which represent greater than 98% of our revenue for the periods presented (and excludes Physical Media revenue), for the last month of a period by 12. Our annual recurring revenue for Computer Backup and B2 Cloud Storage is calculated in the same manner as our overall annual recurring revenue based on the revenue from our Computer Backup and B2 Cloud Storage solutions, respectively.

Net Revenue Retention Rate (NRR)

Our overall net revenue retention rate (NRR) is a trailing four-quarter average of the recurring revenue from a cohort of customers in a quarter as compared to the same quarter in the prior year. We calculate our overall net revenue retention rate for a quarter by dividing (i) recurring revenue in the current quarter from any accounts that were active at the end of the same quarter of the prior year by (ii) recurring revenue in the current corresponding quarter from those same accounts. Our overall net revenue retention rate includes any expansion of revenue from existing customers and is net of revenue contraction and customer attrition, and excludes revenue from new customers in the current period. Our net revenue retention rate for Computer Backup and B2 Cloud Storage is calculated in the same manner as our overall net revenue retention rate based on the revenue from our Computer Backup and B2 Cloud Storage solutions, respectively.

Gross Customer Retention Rate

We use gross customer retention rate to measure our ability to retain our customers. Our gross customer retention rate reflects only customer losses and does not reflect the expansion or contraction of revenue we earn from our existing customers. We believe our high gross customer retention rates demonstrate that we serve a vital service to our customers, as the vast majority of our customers tend to continue to use our platform from one period to the next. To calculate our gross customer retention rate, we take the trailing four-quarter average of the percentage of cohort of customers who were active at the end of the quarter in the prior year that are still active at the end of the current quarter. We calculate our gross customer retention rate for a quarter by dividing (i) the number of accounts that generated revenue in the last month of the current quarter that also generated recurring revenue during the last month of the corresponding quarter in the prior year, by (ii) the number of accounts that generated recurring revenue during the last month of the corresponding quarter in the prior year.

Additional Key Business Metrics Calculation Notes

The metrics for net revenue retention rate and gross customer retention rate are currently calculated using only those customers paying by credit card and exclude customers paying by invoice utilizing a different system. The amounts related to the number of customers paying by invoice has historically been immaterial.

Veeam supports regulatory compliance, availability for 24.7.365 account access and reduces backup and recovery costs by 25% with Veeam Availability Suite and Veeam Backup for Microsoft 365

Columbus, OHIO — August 9, 2022 — / / — Veeam® Software, the leader in backup, recovery and data management solutions that deliver Modern Data Protection, today announced it has been chosen by SmartBank as its first in-house approach to data protection, providing customers with a convenient, secure and reliable banking experience while reducing operational costs and enhancing regulatory reporting. SmartBank was in need of a robust backup solution that boosts customer satisfaction and trust, maintains compliance with regulatory obligations and keeps banking services running and recoverable after a disaster event.

Founded in 2007, SmartBank is a full-service commercial bank providing banking, investment, insurance and mortgage financial services, with 40 branches spanning Tennessee, Alabama and Florida. To provide customers with an unmatched banking experience, SmartBank focuses on hiring employees that will deliver exceptional client service and ensure that the IT infrastructure and applications powering its services are always available. After many years of relying on costly third-party services that only offered limited visibility into the integrity and recoverability of their system backups, the company knew it needed a new, cost-effective solution. SmartBank sought a solution that was able to run, monitor and maintain its backup and recovery systems, while also providing granular reports on its backup environment to prevent regulatory compliance risks.

“Today, customers expect immediate access to their bank accounts and services across multiple digital channels —any unplanned downtime would have a significant impact on our reputation. As a result, preventing disruption to our services is one of our top priorities,” said Daniel Hereford, CIO at SmartBank. “We have a lean IT team, so we wanted a comprehensive backup and recovery solution that was intuitive and easy to operate. We are very impressed by how user-friendly the Veeam solutions are. The fact that Veeam runs on almost any hardware and is compatible with VMware was also a huge plus, as this helps us to avoid vendor lock-in and simplify system management.”

To reduce operational costs and enhance regulatory reporting, SmartBank selected an in-house approach to data protection with Veeam Availability Suite™ and Veeam Backup for Microsoft 365. Delivering always-on services to customers securely and cost-effectively, Veeam drives IT savings, reducing operational costs by 25% and allowing SmartBank to redirect investment towards developing innovative banking products and services. Automation from the Veeam Availability Suite also offers regulatory compliance, making it easy for the company to validate the integrity of their backups and generate reports that prove they are following regulatory requirements. This helps SmartBank maintain an excellent relationship with the Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation (FDIC) and reduce overall business risk.

Veeam also ensures that the company can maintain complete control over all its data. Should there be any issue with the backup services in place, SmartBank will always be able to recover files, emails and application data using Veeam. SmartBank also established primary and secondary on-premises backup environments for long-term data retention, running on HPE StoreOnce servers. For added protection, Veeam solutions are now deployed alongside Microsoft Azure Blob Storage to orchestrate all backup activities from end to end.

Englewood Cliffs, NJ – August 3, 2022 — / / — OwnBackup, the leading SaaS data protection platform, today announced that they have achieved the Federal Risk and Authorization Management Program’s (FedRAMP) “In Process” designation under the sponsorship of the US Department of Agriculture, and are working toward full authorization by the end of the calendar year.

FedRAMP is a government-wide program that provides a standardized approach to security assessment, authorization and monitoring for cloud products and services. Its certification process includes an in-depth examination of a solution’s data security and data governance capabilities, as well as the security practices of its cloud services.

Public sector organizations provide essential services that require available and accurate data at all times. However, the value of this data also makes these organizations more susceptible to cyberattacks and other nefarious threats. Globally, government organizations are now some of the most popular targets for bad actors, second only to those in the education and research sectors. Once full certification is achieved, OwnBackup’s FedRAMP solutions will enable U.S. government agencies to avoid disruption to critical services, ensure a continuity of operations, and maintain trust with their customers.

“Our FedRAMP In Process designation is significant and demonstrates OwnBackup’s commitment to cloud security and data protection,” said Sam Gutmann, CEO at OwnBackup. “With this designation, we can better help public sector organizations accelerate their digital transformation goals, especially when it comes to large development projects where data is at higher risk of corruption or loss.”
