EVault Complements Online Backup With New Professional Services Offerings

EVault Is First Online Backup Provider to Offer Comprehensive Suite of Implementation, Education, Data Protection Planning and Disaster Recovery Test Services

EMERYVILLE, CA -- (MARKET WIRE) -- October 5, 2005 -- EVault, Inc., (www.evault.com) the leading provider of secure, online backup and recovery solutions today introduced new Implementation, Education, Data Protection Planning and Disaster Recovery Test services designed to simplify and accelerate the implementation of comprehensive data protection plans and solutions.

The professional services offerings complement EVault's online data backup and recovery solutions -- technology that has helped perform millions of backups and tens of thousands of successful restorations.

EVault Data Protection Planning and Disaster Recovery Test services help businesses develop a systematic approach to disaster recovery planning, ensuring they are well prepared to return to normal business operations following a disaster or data loss. The services are tailored to meet the needs of customers with different computing environments, and address all potential failure points including hardware, software, network, people and processes. EVault's professional services team provides onsite support to conduct the tests, and analyze and document the results; EVault then provides recommendations to address any issues that are uncovered. The service can be used to comply with key regulatory requirements regarding disaster recovery testing.

"Too many companies perform way too little testing for disaster recovery -- mostly because it's hard and costly to test," said Steve Duplessie, founder and senior analyst at Enterprise Strategy Group. "With the cost of downtime always increasing, Disaster Recovery Testing Services from EVault should find a market waiting with open arms."

"EVault recognizes that while every company has a need for business continuity and disaster recovery planning, not all companies have the internal resources or expertise to support these activities," said Phil Gilmour, president and CEO, EVault, Inc. "That's why we've rolled out new support offerings to assist companies in establishing processes, protocols and best practices surrounding data protection. Our new professional services offerings expand our leadership in the online backup and recovery market, and validate our commitment to offering outstanding customer support."

EVault's new Implementation Services are designed to get companies up and running quickly and easily, with a data protection plan that meets their unique needs. EVault's professional services team works with the customer to support the entire implementation lifecycle, from initial analysis and planning, through implementation, training, maintenance and support.

EVault also introduced its new Educational Services -- an array of courses that includes both classroom and hands-on training that can be held either on site or at one of EVault's training facilities. The courses provide training and certifications designed to address the needs of every member of a company's data management team, including business managers, users, system administrators and partners, ensuring business recovery plans are properly understood and can be executed flawlessly.
