AUSTIN, TX – Jan. 5, 2017 — / — Epicor Software Corporation, a global provider of industry-specific enterprise software to promote business growth, announced today that TMC, a global, integrated media company, has named Epicor Secure Data Backup software a 2016 Cloud Computing Backup and Disaster Recovery Award winner, presented by Cloud Computing Magazine.

Epicor Secure Data Backup is a cloud-based solution designed to protect businesses more fully against disaster-related damage or equipment errors by combining on-site and off-site backups while reducing the hassles and potential points of failure in a backup and recovery strategy.

“Recognizing excellence in the advancement of cloud computing technologies, TMC is proud to announce Epicor Secure Data Backup and Recovery as a recipient of the Cloud Computing Backup and Disaster Recovery Award,” said Rich Tehrani, CEO, TMC. “Epicor Software is being honored for their achievement in bringing innovation to the market, while leveraging the latest technology trends.”

Given the estimate that 25 percent of small businesses do not reopen following a disaster1, independent retailers understand they need easy-to-access solutions to effectively safeguard information in order to maintain and grow their businesses. These are but a few examples of success that independent retail store owners have achieved with the Epicor Secure Data Backup solution:

“Epicor Secure Data Backup is a solid service that works well and provides reassurance that your critical business data is safe,” said Robin Miller, inventory and technology manager at Cole Hardware. “The fee is a small price to pay for that peace of mind.”

“Our data, reports, and scanned documents are among the most valuable assets we have. We can’t be too careful with them, or protect them too much. I find that Epicor Secure Data Backup costs very little for a service that provides tremendous value. It’s taken a worry out of the business and is truly priceless,” said Virgil Cox, owner of Cox Hardware.

“Epicor Secure Data Backup takes the human element and the worry out of the backup process. We know that in the case of a catastrophic event, our data is secure and we will recover,” said Andrew Best, executive vice president at Best Ace Hardware. “Even if you think your data is safe, this solution takes your data security to a whole new level.”

“We are honored to be recognized as a winner in the 2016 Cloud Backup and Disaster Recovery Awards,” said Doug Smith, director of product marketing, retail and distribution, Epicor Software. “The importance of backing up retail business data is widely understood, however many businesses have lost important data because taking the actual steps to backup that information likely doesn’t happen until it’s too late. The Epicor Secure Data Backup solution reduces the hassle of retailers having to worry about backups themselves. With high levels of encryption, the application protects data in transit and storage — giving the retailer peace of mind and allowing more time for them to focus on other key business tasks.”
