Data Protection 24/7/365

Constant data availability is a must for organizations. Choose data protection solutions for your unique IT environment.


Like disasters, IT environments are anything but standard. That’s why businesses need a single cross-platform solution that protects a mixed, hybrid environment. ShadowProtect® backup and disaster recovery software ensures on-prem business systems and data are fully protected and always available.

With ShadowProtect, meet or beat your recovery time and recovery point objectives (RTOs and RPOs). Recover files and folders in minutes. Restore failed servers. Use patented VirtualBoot technology to instantly boot a backup image into a virtual machine.

ShadowProtect image-based backups arm you with multiple ways to recover. Grab a missing file, restore an entire data volume, or restore a failed server’s system to a new physical or virtual machine with no headaches (P2P, P2V, V2P, V2V). You can rely on ShadowProtect because it provides automated verification of backup images to ensure they’ll work when disaster strikes.

Whether you’re responsible for a dozen backups or a thousand, ShadowProtect provides a scalable, stress-free solution. From mass deployment and configuration to automated verification and alerting, ShadowProtect will continue to protect your systems with minimal intervention required.

The way to ensure you can recover systems during a site-wide or regional disaster is to have safe copies of backups in other locations that are easy to access. To protect on-premises systems and data, we offer a cloud that’s purpose-built for disaster recovery. Choose the level of protection needed, ranging from data recovery to instant full network recovery, and only you have access to the stored backups.

File Backup and Recovery with Backup Analyzer

Protect Business-Critical Data. This online backup and recovery solution includes a powerful data analyzer that identifies and protects only the data that’s important to the business.

All Data Is Not Equal.

Much of the data that people at companies produce is not business-critical. Duplicate files, folders for apps no longer in use, music downloads, and family photos don’t need to be protected on the company’s dime. But backup and recovery options—whether image-based or file-and-folder—don’t differentiate between valuable data and irrelevant, unnecessary data.

Except for StorageCraft® File Backup and Recovery with Backup Analyzer.

Intelligent, Automated Data Protection

Rather than backing up all the data on the laptops and desktops in an organization, this online backup solution protects only the data that’s important.

This solution accomplishes this with its web-based data analyzer. This data analyzer, called the StorageCraft Backup Analyzer, features built-in intelligence that identifies what data on a given computer should be backed up and what should be excluded.

Smart Data Analysis

Gain intelligence around the data the business is saving, and identify the data that should be backed up. Don’t waste backup storage on obsolete spreadsheets, 20 copies of the same document, or employees’ pet photos.

Automated, Cloud-Based Backups

Back up business data for employees who travel, work remotely, or sometimes neglect to connect to the office server. Do so even if files are in use or locked by the user, thus protecting often-used and edited data.

Remote Management and Monitoring

Easily manage a file backup and recovery solution for an organization or multiple organizations. License, install, configure, and monitor all customer backup accounts from one web-based dashboard.

Fast Recovery from the Cloud

Empower end users to easily find and download their lost files and folders as needed from the cloud. This backup and recovery solution enables recovery via the familiar Windows interface.

Use ShadowProtect IT Edition in These Scenarios:

  • Doing a quick (hot) backup before starting any new project or system change

  • Creating a backup image of a system’s original factory settings

  • Upgrading to a new version of Windows server or desktop operating system

  • Migrating to new hardware or virtual environment

  • Performing bare metal recovery

Upgrade to ShadowProtect IT Edition PRO for these additional situations:

  • Retrieving accidentally deleted email messages and other data

  • Supporting electronic discovery (e-discovery) efforts and computer forensics investigations

Features of Intelligent File Backup

Use the StorageCraft Backup Analyzer to automatically identify what data to protect and what to exclude, all without interrupting users or needing their computers to be on.

Rest assured that data is safe and accessible—data is transmitted and stored in an encrypted format and resides in Tier III certified data centers.

Store a custom number of revisions of backed up files so end users can access older versions of their data (for efficient transfer, only changed data blocks are uploaded).

Be alerted if a file that is regularly edited or updated hasn’t been recently backed up.

Automate sending customizable reports to clients, and reinforce the value of the backup service you provide.

Prevent slowdowns in your clients’ day-to-day activity by throttling the bandwidth allotted to the backups.
