Paragon Software Introduces New Comprehensive Backup Solution for Safeguarding SMB and Mid-Enterprise Data Assets

New Drive Backup 10 Server Edition Provides All-in-One Backup Solution for System Recovery, System Migration, Image Deployment, and Virtualization Scenarios

IRVINE, CA--(Marketwire - November 17, 2009) - Paragon Software Group (PSG), the technology leader in innovative data security and data management solutions, today announced the debut of its Drive Backup 10 Server Edition, a comprehensive, cost effective backup solution that offers disaster recovery and system migration in both physical and virtual environments. From five computers to thousands of computers across multiple locations, SMBs and mid-enterprises can now affordably protect their systems and data.

Drive Backup 10 Server Edition optimizes workload, reduces recovery times and associated costs with migrating or deploying systems and gives IT managers complete flexibility in managing the continuity of their systems -- whether in a physical or virtual environment. Priced at thirty to forty percent less than competing offerings on a like server environment, Drive Backup 10 Server Edition is the most cost effective solution on the market and includes Adaptive Restore, which gives the ability to restore to different hardware, whereas competitive offerings require purchasing this functionality as an add-on module.

According to Storage Strategies Now's Deni Connor, "By listening to the wants and needs of its customers, Paragon Software was able to produce the right solution at the right time. With the growing complexity and associated challenges of managing and protecting data assets, piecemeal approaches to backup miss the mark. Paragon's comprehensive approach to backup tracks well with the needs we see today."

"Historically, Paragon Software has been very strong in the SMB space," noted Tom Fedro, president of Paragon Software Group. "The debut of Drive Backup 10 Server Edition takes us to the next level as our software can now scale to larger customers -- with more advanced features and a lower price point than competing offerings. Our resellers have been telling us that they need an affordable, all inclusive solution for their larger corporate customers, and Drive Backup 10 Server Edition fits the bill perfectly."

As the corporate environment continues to embrace virtualization and reap its economic benefits, Paragon Software developed the newest edition of its flagship Drive Backup product to enable and simplify migration to a virtual environment. Simple to use and deploy, Drive Backup 10 Server Edition creates an exact duplicate image of the live disk drives on servers or workstations, including the operating system, all files, programs, updates, and databases. Additional new features and benefits include:

--  Backup to FTP -- Expanded backup capability
    to include online archiving
--  Schedule file backup -- Include/exclude file
--  Adaptive Restore -- Third generation
--  Improved remote management capabilities
--  Support for Windows® 2008 R2 and Windows 7

Further setting itself apart from the competition, Drive Backup 10 Server Edition offers unique advantages, including a system boot corrector, ability to create and manage custom scripts, virtual operations to preview tasks before making them live, and a file transfer wizard.

Committed to its customers, Paragon Software's tech support staff hosts an online forum for Drive Backup users. The forum can be accessed at
