Probax launches Dropbox Backup & Archive

Probax, a WA-based provider of intelligent data protection and business continuity solutions for Managed Service Providers (MSPs), has launched a new SaaS protection solution: Dropbox Backup & Archive.

The Dropbox Backup & Archive solution gives businesses a secure and independent backup of their Dropbox data, while extending the retention of critical and historical data beyond the native data recovery limits of Dropbox (up to 180 days).

The data protection and archiving solution allows businesses to easily avoid the risk of lost productivity or business downtime with simple and fast data restoration of individual files, folders or entire workspaces.

Dropbox is a leading collaboration solution in the business environment, one with an ever-growing popularity. Resellers and technology partners who are part of the Dropbox Partner Network can now provide additional value to their Dropbox clients by offering an extra layer of data protection, as well as long-term archival storage and retention, on a fixed price per-user basis.

“Whether meeting regulatory and compliance demands or mitigating disaster recovery risks, business leaders have been looking for backup and recovery options that extend beyond the native data retention limits included in their plan. That’s why we partnered with Dropbox and developed a solution that would provide users of Dropbox with an independent copy of their data and unlimited data retention, while also providing them with another method to quickly recover their data in the event of a ransomware attack, data corruption or accidental deletion. We see this as a real opportunity for MSPs in the Probax Channel program to extend their revenue streams and add increasing value to their Dropbox Business clients.“Dropbox is an incredibly powerful and secure collaboration workspace for a wide range of industries and businesses with diverse data retention, recovery and compliance requirements,” said Sam Meegahage, CEO at Probax.

“Dropbox’s growth in the market is remarkable. As more and more businesses are adopting Dropbox for secure cloud storage and collaboration, this presents a significant opportunity for MSPs who can now add additional value to their clients by providing an independent cloud-to-cloud data protection solution for Dropbox that can be setup and configured in minutes.”

“Probax is the perfect example of a Dropbox Technology Partner who knows how to offer real business value to users of Dropbox,” says Wendy Wrobel, Head of Strategic & Tech Partnerships at Dropbox.

“Probax has a proven track record of collaboration and innovation and we’re excited that our customers now have access to a solution that will further help them meet their business, regulatory and compliance requirements for data protection and retention.”

Dropbox Backup & Archive is available on a monthly subscription, with fixed per user pricing for either Dropbox Business (Standard, Advanced & Enterprise) or Dropbox individual plans (Basic, Plus & Professional).

Probax now offers its MSP channel partners Managed Data Protection Services, including Managed Backup, Managed Disaster Recovery and Managed SaaS Protection for users of Dropbox and Microsoft Office 365.

Managed SaaS Protection for Dropbox can be purchased as an optional extra for MSPs who would prefer to offload proactive monitoring and management tasks to focus on more important and financially beneficial tasks for their business.
