LOCKSTEP RELEASES NEW BACKUP FOR WORKGROUPS(tm) 1.0 BACKUP AND DISASTER RECOVERY SOFTWARE DESIGNED FOR SMALL AND MIDSIZE BUSINESSES

My spin: I love that song…backup, backup, backup….
Phoenix, Arizona USA – 5 February 2003 — Lockstep Systems, Inc. today announced the release of Backup for Workgroups 1.0, a disk-based backup and disaster recovery software utility designed for the small and midsize business market.
“Backup — and the ability to restore quickly — is a business necessity,” said David G. Hill, Vice President of Storage Research at Aberdeen Group. “Small and midsize businesses (SMB) have a fiduciary responsibility as do much larger companies, but may not have the dedicated IT expertise, time, and money to use the same hardware/software process for backup and restore as these larger companies. Enter Lockstep Systems. With its Backup for Workgroups optimized for disk backup, SMB companies now have a software tool that can use existing disk storage assets and take the mystery out of backup and restore — all at a wallet-pleasing price.”
Backup for Workgroups delivers many of the same powerful backup and disaster recovery features commonly found in enterprise-class, tape-based backup software; at a fraction of the cost. While Backup for Workgroups operates as client-server software, it does not require a dedicated server; allowing for its use within a company’s existing infrastructure. Straightforward, easy to follow wizards guide the end user though all aspects of installing and using the software; making it a logical choice for resource constrained small workgroups.
In addition to the software release, Lockstep has also launched a new website at http://www.backup-for-workgroups.com, featuring in-depth product information, white papers, case studies and how-to information to assist SMBs with the implementation of disaster recovery best practices.
