Paragon Software's Backup and Disaster Recovery Software Used by RAND Worldwide for Field and Classroom Laptop Protection

Hidden and Protected Image Eliminates Unauthorized Backup and Restores

IRVINE, CA--(Marketwire - Nov 9, 2011) - Software developer Paragon Software Group announced today that RAND Worldwide is using Paragon's backup and disaster recovery software to protect its remote and classroom laptops. RAND is one of the world's leading providers of technology solutions and professional services to the engineering community, targeting organizations in the building, infrastructure and manufacturing industries. RAND utilizes laptops both in the field and in their training rooms. As such, they needed backup and disaster recovery software that could provide quick and easy system-restore operations for both scenarios.

For field operations, one of the deciding factors behind selecting Paragon's software was that the software could hold a backup image within a hidden and protected partition, while minimizing accessibility by anyone but an administrator. "Other software we evaluated required the product to be installed on the machine," said Doug Dragich, senior systems engineer for RAND Worldwide. "We needed software that would allow us to prevent a user from running the program and changing any of the settings or carrying out unauthorized backups or restores. Paragon's hidden backup capsule technology ensures the availability and integrity of the backup image, and guarantees a successful and quick restore when it counts."

Similarly, RAND needed software that could conveniently restore systems back to their original state after each training session. "With a couple of clicks, our training staff can easily and quickly restore a couple of hundred training machines to look just as they did when they were new for the next training session," said Dragich.

"More and more, companies like RAND Worldwide depend on Paragon Software's backup and disaster recovery tools to simply and effectively protect their users' systems and data," said Tom Fedro, president of Paragon Software Group. "We are very happy to have such an acclaimed company as RAND join our list of quality clients."

The Bottom Line

"Paragon's backup and restore software provided a great way for us to give fast and simple support to our remote employees should their laptops become compromised; as well as quick restores for our training machines," continued Dragich. "Paragon's backup and restore software has proven itself many times over with quick, easy and reliable recoveries."
