The best endpoint data protection for higher education.

Information is your lifeblood

Your institution’s research work is priceless. For your faculty, it’s their life’s work. For students, it’s their opportunity to build a career. For the rest of us, it is data that could spark a world-changing innovation. How do you protect all that without burdening faculty and staff?

Always On Backup


Our solution automatically protects files on every device all the time. No matter what happens, your users always have access to their vital research data.

Secure Every Device and Recover Quickly


Backup from Windows, Mac, and Linux devices with a consistent experience across all platforms. When data loss strikes, CrashPlan recovers files fast. And with user-level encryption, no non-admin user can restore data other than their own, providing the maximum security for all users’ data.

Be Ready for Anything


When data loss incidents (like hardware failure or ransomware) occur; recover quickly without extended downtime or paying a ransom. By default, CrashPlan backs up once every 15 minutes, so your users never have to worry about losing more than a few minutes of work again.
