Global Online Backup Provider KeepItSafe Enters Canadian Market

KeepItSafe, Part of World-Leading Cloud Service Provider j2 Global®, Positioned to Become Canada’s Leading Provider of Online Backup Services for Business

Toronto, ON and Vancouver, BC – April 1, 2014 – KeepItSafe®, a provider of online backup services and a brand of j2 Global, Inc. (NASDAQ:JCOM), has officially launched KeepItSafe Canada, now one of the key providers of cloud backup services to Canadian businesses.

Although the name KeepItSafe is new to Canada, the company’s heritage, personnel and expertise represent more than a decade of Canadian-based experience protecting businesses’ data in the cloud. KeepItSafe Canada is the result of acquisitions of the online backup businesses of some of the country’s leading service providers, including e-ternity Business Continuity Consultants Inc. and IQ Storage in Eastern Canada, and Western Canada’s ebackup.

As expected, data residency and security are of paramount concern to customers when it comes to online backup. Due to KeepItSafe Canada’s bicoastal infrastructure and data centres in both Toronto and Vancouver, all of the data under the company’s cloud backup and protection will be completely redundant between both data centres and is guaranteed to remain within the country.

“Until now, the Canadian market for cloud backup has been fragmented,” said Hemi Zucker, CEO at j2 Global®. “The providers we’ve brought together have a strong presence in their respective regions and today, under the KeepItSafe® Canada brand, represent a seamless solution for the entire country.”
“With j2 Global’s leadership and financial track record – its cloud backup annualized monthly revenue run-rate recently surpassed $40 million – KeepItSafe Canada is uniquely positioned to become the country’s leading cloud backup service provider,” added Jonathan Crowe, Managing Director for KeepItSafe Americas and the Pacific region.

How KeepItSafe’s online backup works

KeepItSafe Canada installs data backup software onsite at the customer premises and, at scheduled intervals, encrypts and securely transmits the data to a KeepItSafe secure facility. The data is also mirrored to a second KeepItSafe centre – so client data will be securely stored in Toronto and Vancouver. In the event of data loss or corruption at a client site, the client can instantly access all of their data online with the full assistance of the KeepItSafe technical support team. KeepItSafe also offers Disaster Recovery (DR) solutions, ensuring that even after a catastrophic data loss, a client can access all data almost immediately; anywhere they have an Internet connection.

Reseller program launching soon

KeepItSafe Canada will roll out an enhanced partner program for Canadian IT resellers and Managed Service Providers in May of this year. KeepItSafe Canada’s goal is to introduce the country’s best channel partner support for online backup services to ensure our partners have the highest probability of success in the marketplace.

j2 Global Canada, Inc. is a subsidiary of j2 Global, one of the world’s leading providers of cloud solutions for businesses. j2 Global provides communication and data services to more than 12 million businesses around the world, including Canada, and has been a cloud-service leader for nearly two decades. As of December 31, 2013, the company had achieved 18 consecutive fiscal years of revenue growth.

KeepItSafe Takes On A Leading Role in Hollywood

KeepItSafe contracts with The Hollywood Chamber of Commerce to back up critical data, including historical documents related to the world famous Hollywood sign and Walk of Fame

Los Angeles, CA — 09/10/13 — KeepItSafe, a global provider of online backup services and a brand of j2 Global®, Inc (NASDAQ:JCOM), has announced that the Hollywood Chamber of Commerce, based in Hollywood, CA., has selected KeepItSafe to back up the Chamber’s business critical data and historical documents to the cloud. For 92 years, the Chamber has played a very important role in the history of Hollywood – everything from revitalizing the community to saving the Hollywood Sign to managing the Hollywood Walk of Fame.

“We were using tape backup which was archaic and unreliable,” says Kaylee Kiecker, vice president of marketing and business development for the Hollywood Chamber. “KeepItSafe enables us to manage our business documents in ways that are more customer-focused and better for our members. Nothing falls through the cracks and it’s much more transparent.”

Representing the interests of nearly 900 small firms in Los Angeles as well as acting as an advocate for the business community on wide ranging issues, the Hollywood Chamber of Commerce also owns the licensing rights to the world-famous Hollywood sign and the Hollywood Walk of Fame, entities that generate hundreds of pages of documents that are now backed up by KeepItSafe. “These are historical documents that are more safe and secure than they’ve ever been,” said Kiecker.

Commenting on the partnership with KeepItSafe, Leron Gubler, president and CEO of the Hollywood Chamber of Commerce, said, “We are contracting with a reliable and affordable data protection service that easily eliminates the concern of backing up our data on a regular basis. KeepItSafe has offered us a hands-on approach to protecting our vital information and their outstanding level of customer service gave us the confidence to move away from backup tapes.”

According to Kiecker, The Hollywood Chamber of Commerce plans to move more business services to the cloud and is currently evaluating two other j2 Global services: eVoice®, a virtual phone service; and eFax®, the world’s leading online fax service. “We love the idea of a one-stop shop that introduces us to new technologies that are relevant to the business challenges we face that we can then recommend to our members,” said Kiecker.

“All businesses, regardless of size, need to protect their critical data,” said Hemi Zucker, CEO of j2 Global. “We’re thrilled to be working with the Hollywood Chamber.”

KeepItSafe Launches Channel Partner Program in U.S.

Online backup provider KeepItSafe® ISO 27001, SSAE 16 and SOC 2 Data Certified Provider of Customized Online Backup Solutions Brings a Fully Managed, Fully Monitored, Fully Restorable Backup Solution to VARS and Resellers in the U.S.

Los Angeles, CA — (Marketwire) — 10/18/12 KeepItSafe®, an online backup provider and branded service of j2 Global®, Inc. (NASDAQ: JCOM), has launched a comprehensive service and support channel partner programme in the U.S. The new service provides resellers and VARs with fully monitored and managed online backup services, wholesale pricing rates, re-brandable marketing and sales materials, 24/7 sales and tech support, and email marketing and sales coaching. One of the few online backup and DR companies in the world with ISO 27001 certification, KeepItSafe is online at www.keepitsafe.com.

The launch of the KeepItSafe channel partner programme in the U.S. paves the way for service providers new to selling backup services to establish a relationship with a fully managed and monitored online backup service with ISO 27001, SSAE 16 and SOC 2 data certification. KeepItSafe also offers migration programmes for online backup partners who may not be happy with their current provider and want to transition to a fully monitored and managed online backup solution.

VARs and resellers interested in becoming a KeepItSafe partner can contact the company at 888-965-9988 or via email at email@keepitsafe.com.

“The launch of our channel partner programme in the U.S. reinforces the fact that the KeepItSafe online backup service is fully equipped and ready to bring a superior level of service to both VARs and resellers of online backup services,” said Jonathan Crowe, technical director of KeepItSafe. “By offering comprehensive sales, marketing and technical support, in addition to a fully managed and monitored backup solution, the KeepItSafe Channel Partner programme goes beyond what most VARs and resellers receive from other backup services providers. KeepItSafe channel partners can realize higher margins with less effort, while their customers gain more secure and reliable backup of critical data.”

Many backup providers offer services that require internal management, which can lead to confusion as to who is responsible for managing and monitoring the backup process. KeepItSafe differs from these backup providers by installing, monitoring, and managing the service for customers, helping eliminate the confusion that can come from co-managed services. And, while many companies are moving to hybrid backup systems — one for backing up physical servers, and one for virtual backup services — KeepItSafe supports both in a single offering.

KeepItSafe is backed by the financial and IT resources of j2 Global® (NASDAQ: JCOM), a $1.45-billion market cap publicly traded company and provider of cloud services for business. Founded in 1995, j2 Global has been recognized in 2012 with numerous awards, including recent listing on the prestigious InformationWeek 500 list, an annual ranking of the most innovative companies employing information technology in their businesses.
