Idera Announces Innovative SharePoint Backup and Recovery Product

Easy-to-Use Solution Provides High Performance Backup, Intelligent Object Search and Self-Service Document Recovery

LAS VEGAS, NV--(Marketwire - November 11, 2008) - In booth #207 at the DevConnections Conference, Idera, a leading provider of management and administration solutions for Microsoft Windows, announced the upcoming release of its Pointbackup™ product, a powerful, easy to use backup and recovery solution for Microsoft SharePoint sites and site collections.

Idera's Pointbackup enables administrators to ensure the safety and integrity of vital SharePoint content by automating the backup and recovery process. Key features include:

--  Backup Automation - A powerful and flexible scheduling engine enables
    automation of backup operations, ensuring that vital content is backed up
    on a regular basis.
--  IntelliSearch - A powerful, repository-based search engine enables
    users to search across multiple backups to quickly find and retrieve
    archived objects, from individual documents to entire sites.
--  Self-Service Recovery - Dramatically reduces administrator workload by
    enabling users to recover their own documents.
--  Reduced Backup Storage - Pointbackup saves storage costs by employing
    powerful compression technology, reducing backup file sizes by as much as
    95 percent.

"SharePoint's popularity as a repository for critical documents, information, processes and workflows continues to grow," said Matt Ranlett, Microsoft SharePoint MVP and principal consultant at Intellinet, a highly certified and nationally recognized IT strategy consulting services firm. "With this mass adoption of SharePoint it is essential that companies use a backup and recovery solution like Idera's Pointbackup to ensure this critical data is available and easily found."

With the rapid proliferation of SharePoint, many administrators are not SharePoint experts leaving gaps in knowledge that Idera's easy-to-use solutions can fill.

"Fast and efficient backup and recovery of SharePoint content is a requirement not a luxury for our customers. When critical content is lost people need to feel sure that that it has been backed up and can be retrieved in a matter of minutes," said Rick Pleczko, President and CEO of Idera. "Pointbackup provides high performance backup and recovery as well as unparalleled usability and flexibility resulting in reduced administrator workload and increased service levels to SharePoint users."

In a related press release today, Idera also announced Pointcheck™, a free SharePoint performance monitoring tool. To read the press release visit
