DUBLIN, Ohio, Oct. 25, 2012 /PRNewswire/ — More small to mid-sized businesses than ever will now be able to trust in the security of their private data. With the acquisition of 3X Systems, Trustyd is expanding its role in the rapidly growing private data security market.
“For the small business owner, rapid recovery of critical private data is crucial for day-to-day operations,” said Trustyd CEO Matthew Wald. “They must be able to rely on secure remote backup to accomplish that. 3X Systems has always provided the most secure and cost-effective solutions on the market. As Trustyd, we will continue to increase the value of each business’ ongoing investment in those solutions.”
3X Systems’ remote backup appliances (RBAs) set a new standard in the backup and recovery market, earning recognitions from CRN as a 2010 Top 20 Coolest Cloud Storage Vendor, a 2011 Top 100 Cloud Computing Vendor, and most recently, a 2012 Emerging Vendor.
“We’re proud of our turnkey appliances,” said Trustyd CTO Dan Shinton. “We’ve always emphasized the remote off-site deployment of our portable RBA and its application for disaster recovery scenarios.
