When we pioneered SaaS backup almost a decade ago, our vision was driven towards protecting our customer’s data on the cloud – Securing the Cloud. Underscoring why we’re all the more excited to announce our merger with an organization that shares our vision. We’re proud to announce that CloudAlly is now part of Zix’s Secure Cloud. Zix, is a leading provider of cloud email security, productivity, and compliance solutions. It’s trusted by leading healthcare, finance, and government institutions including 30% of U.S. banks, 1,200 U.S. hospitals, and ~30% of Blue Cross Blue Shield (BCBS) plans.
With our complementary vision, we seek to collaboratively address the growing demand for enterprise-grade cloud offerings to secure the modern workplace. As David Wagner, Zix’s Chief Executive Officer emphasizes, “The combination of our companies is a direct response to the growing demand we’ve seen from our partners, customers, and prospects alike, for an exceptional cloud backup offering that can protect critical SaaS data. As a leadership team, it was important that we find the right fit, and with CloudAlly, we are confident that we’ve done just that. Together, we can greatly enhance our Secure Cloud platform and also mitigate concerns around ransomware which has become a large industry focus.”
Avinoam Katz, CloudAlly’s Chief Executive Officer, concurs: “A comprehensive data protection plan is more important than ever as companies around the world are focusing on cybersecurity for their remote workforce. We’re extremely excited to join forces with Zix at this time and feel that our industry-leading cloud backup service will be a complementary and valuable addition to their recently announced Secure Cloud Platform, an integrated suite of productivity, security and compliance services”.
CloudAlly and Zix – Strengthening the Secure Cloud
While Zix has become known as a leader in cloud-based email security over the last two decades, it has sought to evolve into a holistic enabler of digital transformation, cloud migration, and workplace modernization. Its vision for the secure, modern workplace came to life earlier this year with the launch of Secure Cloud, which brings together proven security, compliance, and productivity solutions in one platform. Now that remote work has become the norm, Secure Cloud is helping businesses across industries fulfill their responsibility to create a space where employees can collaborate securely and productively.
Since 2011, CloudAlly has been trusted by thousands of customers for enterprise-grade backup and recovery. CloudAlly’s SaaS backup solutions for Microsoft 365, SharePoint, Google Workspace, Salesforce, Box, and Dropbox perfectly harmonize with Zix AppRiver’s best-in-class encryption, archiving, secure file sharing, and threat mitigation tools. With CloudAlly, Zix now enters the cloud backup and recovery market, which is estimated to be worth $1.3 billion by 2022
Together, we’ll reinforce our strong natural synergies: providing businesses with the tools they need to further their cloud adoption and digital transformation initiatives, wrapped with exceptional customer care. Together we are committed to strengthening our Secure Cloud platform so you can continue to establish a resilient, secure modern workplace for your customers. Driving greater productivity, security, and compliance.
