Decho Reports Triple-Digit Growth in New Customers from Accounting and Financial Services Markets

Decho Corporation, an EMC Company (NYSE: EMC), today announced triple-digit growth in new Mozy(TM) customers from the accounting and financial services markets over the past 12 months. As these firms look to protect irreplaceable business data, they’re turning to MozyPro(R), the industry’s most trusted online business backup service.

“Contrary to past experience, small and medium-size business IT spending will decline more than enterprise IT spending as small businesses bear more of the pain from the housing sector collapse and the financial crisis,” said analyst Andrew Bartels in a May 2009 Forrester Research Inc report titled “US Enterprises Versus SMB IT Budgets in 2009.” In addition, Gartner recently reported the loss of intellectual property or customer data was the number one concern of North American organizations surveyed by Gartner in 2007 and 2008.

Tostevin Accountancy, an accounting, tax, fiduciary, financial planning, and business consulting firm headquartered in Monterey, CA, had been using a tape backup system that it found unreliable and consumed too much valuable office space. It also needed a solution that would work automatically and support Microsoft Exchange. Tostevin reduced its corporate backup costs by 84 percent after they switched from a tape backup provider to MozyPro.

“Our previous solution required a significant investment upfront for both hardware and software, plus costs associated with required maintenance,” said Dennis Forest, CPA at Tostevin Accountancy Corporation. “MozyPro’s inexpensive price and minimal management times made it the natural choice for us.”

MozyPro’s benefits are also being realized by banks. The State Bank of Geneva was spending several hours per week managing on-premise data backups and moving backup media off-site. “The simplicity of Mozy is great for a small business,” said Rick Razum, IT Director for the State Bank of Geneva. “However, its features are so enabling and well-designed that Mozy is ideal for larger companies as well. The quality of product for an affordable rate is unmatched.”

“In addition to the significant cost savings that can be achieved with MozyPro, accounting and financial firms recognize Mozy’s market leadership in data protection,” said Daniel Royer, MozyPro manager at Decho Corp. “These firms can now focus on their business knowing that their important digital information is secure.”

Decho More Than Doubles Number of Mozy Education Customers

Decho Corporation, an EMC Company (NYSE: EMC), today announced the number of educational institutions using Mozy(TM) has more than doubled from the previous year, demonstrating a continual need for efficient, secure and affordable online backup among schools ranging from K-12 to colleges and universities. As the industry’s most trusted online backup service, Mozy now caters to more than 700 educational institutions including Northwestern University, University of San Francisco, University of Hawaii and Brigham Young University. Mozy helps schools cut costs, save time and protect the valuable digital information created by faculty, staff and students.

Students and faculty are creating and accumulating an ever-growing body of valuable digital information in the form of lesson plans, research papers, homework and enrollment records, all of which need to be protected. Financial support is the lifeblood for all of academia; however, many educational institutions are currently experiencing budget cuts and a significant reduction in endowment income. This decrease in funding is affecting all departments, including IT. As a result, online backup solutions such as MozyPro(R) are becoming an increasingly attractive option because the institution pays only for the storage spaced used and requires no upfront investment.

“Protecting the information, research and intellectual capital generated by our faculty and staff is of the utmost importance,” said Barbara Sutcliffe, manager of business operations at the Feinberg School of Medicine at Northwestern University. “Like so many schools today, we are looking for solutions that are affordable, reliable and easy to use. While the cost of Mozy is minimal, the peace of mind it provides is priceless.”

Partnering with MozyPro has also helped the University of San Francisco substantially reduce the total cost of ownership of a data backup solution. Without MozyPro, the university would have spent in excess of $60,000 on hardware and software alone, not including labor, staffing and training costs. By using MozyPro, USF saved nearly 60 percent of its annual file backup costs. They are also able to perform their file recovery tasks five times faster than before. The extra hours allow the team to focus more on the needs of the university faculty and staff and less on technical demands.

“In the current economic environment, most universities have lost some level of principle in their capital investments; others are having their operating budgets cut, and still others are facing enrollment declines,” said Walter Petruska, information security officer at the University of San Francisco. “Against this backdrop of reduced budgets and uncertain revenues, the high startup and continuing operational costs involved in building your own backup/recovery solution can be avoided by using MozyPro.”

Backup of faculty and staff computers may be managed via the web-based MozyPro Administrative Console which saves valuable time and frees up already overstretched IT managers. This allows IT staff to focus on more important projects critical to university operations. A single administrator can configure and deploy the MozyPro backup software and centrally manage hundreds or thousands of users.

“Mozy saves educational institutions money, provides world-class protection and allows students and teachers to focus on what’s most important–education” said Dave Robinson, vice president of Mozy marketing at Decho Corp. “In this economy, educational institutions are being asked to do more with less, and Mozy allows these institutions to realize the benefits of an easy to use, secure and scalable backup infrastructure with very little upfront investment.”

Mozy, the most trusted online backup solution for consumers and businesses, serves more than 30,000 business customers and more than 1 million users.

MozyPro Growth Doubles in the Legal Industry

Mozy announced that the number of legal organizations backing up their digital data with MozyPro has more than doubled from the previous year. Cost savings, security benefits, and the explosion of electronically-stored information have lead thousands of legal professionals to turn to Mozy for their backup solution.

Like most companies facing economic challenges, law firms are looking for ways to cut costs and improve efficiencies. For instance, long time member and contributor to the American Bar Association, Joseph Booth, knew he had to be smart about his investments when he opened his own practice. By choosing MozyPro, he realized a 92 percent savings over other backup solutions and was still able to easily and securely protect his most important business data.

Mozy also helps law firms address the need to protect large amounts of case files and client information, as Tina Peot of PHMPP Law attests. “I have endless amounts of data to manage, so it is essential I have a simple backup solution,” she said. “Mozy doesn’t take up more of my time, but instead makes my job easier.”

Cost Savings, Compliance and Protection of Patient Information Drives Healthcare Organizations to Adopt Mozy

SEATTLE, May 7 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ — Decho Corporation, an EMC Company (NYSE: EMC), today announced the number of healthcare organizations using its industry-leading MozyPro(R) online backup solution to protect patient information has more than doubled in the past year. Mozy(TM) is the most trusted online backup solution for consumers and businesses.

Digitization of health records has become a top priority for healthcare organizations, driven by the Health Information Technology for Economic and Clinical Health (HITECH) Act that made electronic health care records (EHRs) a federal government priority. As a result, online capabilities can be leveraged to back up Protected Health Information (PHI) at ambulatory care and physician care practices to leverage upcoming reimbursement funding coming as part of stimulus initiatives. Thousands of healthcare organizations — including nationwide ambulatory surgery centers, medical, and dental offices — use MozyPro to securely back up digitized files over the internet to an offsite location, helping to drastically reduce the cost of backing up patient data.

Physicians Endoscopy, a nationally recognized healthcare development and management company that operates 17 freestanding ambulatory surgery centers across the U.S., realized a 90 percent savings in backup costs and greater confidence that their records and important documents are secure and available in the event of a disaster. “My team manages IT operations for remote facilities that house important patient and business documents,” said Gene Goroschko, vice president of information systems at Physicians Endoscopy. “The reasonable price and ease of use of MozyPro has not only helped us cut our backup times in half, we’ve actually been able to extend our emergency recovery plan to include other aspects of our business that will help keep us going in the event of a hardware failure.”

Dr. Wayne T. Faber of Tenafly Dental Associates in Tenafly, New Jersey realized a 97 percent backup cost savings for his paper-free office after switching to MozyPro. “This is a major initiative that will make patient records safer and enable them to be transferred more easily,” Dr. Faber said. “MozyPro makes it easier for us to ensure that our medical records are accurate, accessible and indestructible.”

MozyPro is a simple, automatic and secure solution for healthcare organizations to back up patient X-rays, account information and other health records, ensuring the protection of vital information in the event of theft, disaster or hardware failure. MozyPro is an especially cost-effective solution for healthcare providers within the small to medium size business market looking to ensure compliance and protection of patient data. In addition, online backup helps organizations enable compliance with HIPAA requirements for encrypted copies of files kept in a secure off-site location. Mozy’s military-grade encryption and world-class data centers help Mozy customers have confidence that their PHI is safe and secure.

“Healthcare organizations are accumulating unprecedented amounts of digital information that require a new approach to the management and protection of information,” said Dave Robinson, vice president of Mozy marketing at Decho Corp. “Now more than ever, healthcare organizations are searching for secure yet affordable ways to back up patient information. Our rapid growth in this sector reflects our unique ability to reduce backup costs while securely protecting vital patient information against catastrophic data loss.”
