Reduces Data Restore Times by 98 Percent, Saving IT Department One Business Day Per Week

SAN FRANCISCO--(EON: Enhanced Online News)--EVault, Inc., a Seagate Company (NASDAQ:STX), today announced that Marlen International has replaced its tape-based backup system with EVault® Cloud-Connected backup and recovery services, including EVault Endpoint Protection and EVault Cloud Disaster Recovery Service. The Kansas-based food equipment manufacturing company wanted to establish reliable offsite disaster protection, secure its mobile devices, and significantly reduce backup management and restore times. The result has been a 98-percent reduction in backup data restore times and savings of 8.5 hours per week for the IT department.

Marlen’s legacy tape-based backup system struggled to keep pace with the company’s rapid data growth and increasingly mobile workforce. Backup and recoveries were difficult to manage, time-consuming, and costly, and data in remote sites and on laptops was not sufficiently protected. Marlen implemented the EVault Cloud Disaster Recovery Service to expand recovery and backup to remote offices and establish reliable offsite disaster protection.

“Other solutions either required heavy, expensive, and complicated equipment or didn't provide the features, services and flexibility of EVault,” said Travis Stoll, a systems administrator at Marlen. “Marlen now has a drastically improved comfort level that its data is safe, and we cut our restore times from over three hours per week to just five minutes.”

Another important reason Marlen switched to EVault was to protect valuable company data that lived outside the firewall on employees’ laptops and mobile devices. To secure data from server to desktop to laptop, Stoll selected EVault Endpoint Protection. As a result, desktops and laptops continuously back up to the EVault cloud and the local hard drive, automatically securing valuable endpoint data without disrupting Marlen employees who are working remotely.

“EVault Endpoint Protection worked flawlessly after a company employee’s laptop was stolen,” said Stoll. “It had been consistently protecting our user’s data through the EVault cloud, and because the laptop data was already locked, whoever took the computer couldn’t access it. The owner of the laptop came in the next morning, and by noon, we were able to give him a brand-new laptop and restore all of his data.”

"The challenges that Marlen faced are quite common with mid-market organizations; as companies grow, data increases and the workforce becomes more mobile,” said Terry Cunningham, president and general manager of EVault. “Our mission at EVault is to help customers like Marlen tackle issues of scalability and business continuity head-on through a variety of products and services that provide a reliable and comprehensive approach to backup and recovery, no matter the situation.”
