Probax launches Dropbox backup solution for MSPs

12 Jul 2019

Probax, a provider of intelligent data protection and business continuity solutions for managed service providers (MSPs), has launched a new SaaS protection solution for Dropbox. 

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 avoid the risk of lost productivity or business downtime with data restoration of individual files, folders or entire workspaces.

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.

“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,” says Probax CEO Sam Meegahage. 

“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’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 set up and configured in minutes.”

Dropbox is a leading collaboration solution in the business environment with an ever-growing popularity.

“Probax is the perfect example of a Dropbox Technology Partner who knows how to offer real business value to users of Dropbox,” says Dropbox strategic and tech partnership head Wendy Wrobel.

“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.”
