I’m pretty sold on the fact that for a small business in particular, a backup product needs to be simple to get going with, low maintenance, and on the rare occasion you need support, that there’s somebody on the end of the phone to help you quickly.

Yes, you guessed it – I, from my completely unbiased position, think BackupAssist is a better product for a small company than BackupExec so I’m offering you another good reason to think about moving across.

Starting today, if you make the switch to BackupAssist from Symantec BackupExec 2010 or later, for a limited time, when you buy the core BackupAssist application with 2 year’s upgrade protection, we’ll give you the second year completely free! .

Upgrade Protection entitles you to all new versions, lets you link your software to the Multisite Manager if you wish, and of course provides our top-notch phone, email and remote support, completely free!
