Product Quick Facts
CrashPlan, created by Code42, offers endpoint backup solutions, including cloud-based backup and storage solutions for subscribers.

CrashPlan helps businesses protect their data from loss, damage, and theft.
CrashPlan’s cloud endpoint backup service features automated backups, 448-bit data encryption, 128-bit communication encryption, universal networking, guaranteed user-initiated restore services, and no bandwidth or file size limits. CrashPlan features a user-friendly, single dashboard console accessible on a desktop, mobile device, or online. Because the company offers different service levels, CrashPlan is a scalable endpoint backup solution for growing businesses. CrashPlan differentiates itself from the competition by providing expanded compatibility, the option to keep deleted files, multiple file versions, multiple backup sets, and minute-by-minute automated backups. In its enterprise level service package, CrashPlan offers cloud storage options that include public, private, and hybrid clouds. In addition to featured services, CrashPlan offers subscribers ongoing support and reporting services to easily manage data.
Code42’s CrashPlan is an attractive option for medium and large-scale businesses looking for a worry-free backup solution.
