SAN FRANCISCO -- (BUSINESS WIRE) -- EVault, Inc., a Seagate company (NASDAQ: STX), today announced that Windows Azure customers who sign a new Windows Azure Enterprise Agreement will receive one year of free EVault Endpoint Protection, a cloud-connected backup, recovery and data security solution for endpoint devices.
EVault’s offer is available to Microsoft Enterprise and Partner Group (EPG) customers signing a new Windows Azure Enterprise Agreement with an annual commitment of $50,000 USD or more and is valid now through June 30, 2014. The global promotion includes free unlimited device licensing, unlimited licensing for optional network caches, vault set-up, and 24/7 support from EVault’s team of data protection experts. EVault has been supporting cloud-connected backup and recovery services on Windows Azure since October 2010.
“While working with Microsoft, we’ve been able to provide organizations around the world flexible and cost-effective solutions that both protect critical information and scale over time to meet their unique needs,” said Terry Cunningham, president and general manager, EVault. “Our successful relationship has already benefited many joint customers, and we look forward to offering more of our cloud-connected services on the Windows Azure platform in this coming year.”
Distributed workforces depend on a variety of connections to be productive. For the organization, this increases the chance of data loss and diminishes corporate data visibility. EVault Endpoint Protection simplifies data recovery in case of employee turnover, equipment upgrades and the handling of lost devices, while providing businesses with efficient, centralized data recovery and data loss prevention controls. It automatically synchronizes data to the customer’s instance of Windows Azure.
“With this special offer, new Windows Azure customers gain additional protection by backing up the data that resides on endpoint devices connected to the Windows Azure cloud,” said Kim Akers, General Manager, Developer and Platform Evangelism, Microsoft Corp. “Our relationship with EVault helps us provide our customers with greater capacity and flexibility to mitigate a wide range of endpoint data protection risks.”
