Carbonite Upgrades Pro Backup for SMBs

PRESS RELEASE — BOSTON, September 9, 2015 – Carbonite, Inc. (NASDAQ: CARB), a leading provider of cloud and hybrid business continuity solutions for small and midsize businesses (SMBs), today announced the latest version of its workstation backup solution, Carbonite Pro. With this release, Carbonite Pro Prime administrators can remotely deploy and manage backups for all of the workstations in their organization – simplifying the data protection process and reducing the risk of data loss for SMBs.

Carbonite’s new remote deployment and management features give IT administrators more control over their users’ backups. Administrators can now create backup policies defining what should and should not be backed up and deploy that policy from a centralized web dashboard, saving time and preventing user errors in setting up backups. Administrators can manage policies on an ongoing basis to ensure the right business data is being protected at all times.

“A backup solution is worthless if it’s not protecting the right data. By placing the control in an administrator’s hands, SMBs can decrease the risk of human error in setting up a backup solution and ensure mission-critical data is backed up as it’s created,” said David Raissipour, Senior Vice President of Engineering, Carbonite. “With Carbonite Pro Prime’s new remote deployment and management features, administrators can save valuable time in implementing and managing their business’s backup solution.”
