Chosen for Easy Deployment, Reliable Recovery, Flexible Scheduling Features and Cost Effectiveness

IRVINE, CA--(Marketwired - May 9, 2013) - Paragon Software Group (PSG), a leader in data storage, backup and recovery, announced that South Carolina-based Converse College selected Hard Disk Manager (HDM) Premium for ease of deployment, dependable backup and recovery, job-scheduling features and cost effectiveness.
