Dropmysite’s Rebranding to Dropsuite Brings New Services
A recent rebrand by cloud backup service provider Dropmysite to Dropsuite has brought three of its popular services under one roof to offer a one-stop backup and recovery solution for small and medium-sized businesses. The three preexisting services now exist as sub-brands of Dropsuite. Dropmysite provides website and database backup services. Dropmyemail provides secure email management, backup and statistics on usage. Dropmymobile allows for secure backup and restoration of all mobile data.
As part of its rebranding, Dropsuite has added a new server backup and is partnering with other companies to help it expand globally.
New DSE Server Backup
Over 40 percent of small business owners want cloud backup, according to SME Cloud Insights. This is hardly surprising with hacking attacks on the rise. In fact, according to PwC, 74 percent of small businesses experienced security breaches in 2015.
Dropsuite has responded by launching a file-based server backup tool called DSE Server Backup. It provides continuous backups of server changes and allows for customization of data retention. This tool is intended to protect businesses from data loss. It also offers the possibility of a quick recovery, which minimizes downtime, data loss and financial loss.
In addition to cyber attacks, small businesses face the issue of data loss from other sources. For example, changing web hosts, power outages, natural disasters, user error and weak passwords can result in data loss. Dropsuite works to fix these problems by sending notifications of outages, providing uptime monitoring and implementing a one-click restore.
Dropsuite’s CEO, Charif Elansari, explains that data loss is a huge worry for small businesses and backup solutions can be “difficult and expensive.” It is even more costly if those solutions fail, however. He adds that regular IT security systems don’t serve small business owners adequately, which is why Dropsuite is working to help them recover and get back to business as quickly as possible. He says, “It’s simply better backup.”
The Future for Dropsuite
Elansari sees Dropsuite as a future leader in the global business continuity space. Valued at $1.42 billion in 2015, this sector is expected to be worth $11.92 billion by 2020, according to MarketsandMarkets research. As part of its global expansion, Dropsuite is pursuing global linkages that will allow it to give small businesses around the world peace of mind with regard to their data.
One approach has been to partner with leading web hosting service providers so they can bundle Dropsuite into their offerings to customers. For example, GoDaddy, the world’s biggest web hosting provider, and Leader Telecom, a leading provider in Europe have created partnerships with Dropsuite. The company also has partnered with the top hosting companies in Ireland, Japan, Canada and Singapore and is pursuing a listing on the Australian Stock Exchange.
