Wagner has further stated that with CloudAlly, the company can now directly address the escalating demand from prospects, partners, and clients for an enterprise-grade cloud backup product with a best-in-class solution.

Cloud backup is the Zix’s number one product adjacency and, together with the company’s proven success in furnishing more products to the its clientele base, delivers a high level of confidence that could be leveraged with CloudAlly to become a greater business than merely the sum of its parts, added Wagner.

For the uninitiated, CloudAlly was established in 2011 and is a pioneer of enterprise-grade SaaS (software-as-a-service) cloud recovery and backup solutions. The company provides a robust suite of award-winning HIPAA/GDPR compliant solutions for OneDrive, Microsoft Office 365, Google Workspace (formerly G suite), Dropbox, SharePoint, and Salesforce.

CloudAlly CEO, Avinoam Katz, is of the opinion that an inclusive data protection plan is more significant than ever as organizations around the world are concentrating on cybersecurity for their remote workforce. Katz has also expressed that the company is thrilled to join forces with Zix at this time and believes that the its industry leading cloud backup service will be a valuable addition and complementary to the company’s lately announced Secure Cloud Platform, which is a comprehensive suite of compliance, productivity, and security services. This suite of services will provide tools that are required for the protection of customers’ critical cloud assets across a rapidly transforming and distributed workforce, added Katz.
