Mello & Pickering, LLP Deploys EVault SaaS Backup and Recovery Solution and Rests Easy

As data volumes and privacy concerns increase, IT resources are being stretched thinner. Companies need progressive ways to run critical applications and ensure they can recover from any outage in a timely manner. They need secure, reliable and scalable solutions that require minimal maintenance so they can focus on their core business.

SANTA CLARA, Calif., June 2, 2009 - i365™, Inc., A Seagate Company (NASDAQ: STX), today announced that Mello & Pickering, LLP has moved to i365’s EVault SaaS Small Business Edition, a simple, safe, affordable online backup and recovery service, for its reliability and simplicity. Mello & Pickering, LLP, a small family law firm makes the privacy and availability of their clients’ data a priority. As a small firm, lacking internal IT resources, Mello and Pickering, LLP required a reliable “set it and forget it” data protection solution to safeguard their clients’ critical legal information. Unsatisfied with their previous online backup solution, Mello & Pickering, LLP chose EVault SaaS Small Business Edition for its ease of use, security and reliability in backing up their critical business data offsite.

“As lawyers, we have a duty ethically, professionally and legally to protect our clients’ work product. In this technological era, everything is done online, scanning, and via email, so we were concerned about protecting this electronically stored information,” said Traci Pickering, partner with Mello & Pickering, LLP. “All of our time is devoted to working for our clients, so the last thing we need to be worrying about is whether our system is backing up. With i365, that worry and stress are completely gone, and we know that our clients’ work product is safe, secure and retrievable at any point.”

Mello & Pickering, LLP decided to replace their unreliable, problematic system with i365’s EVault SaaS Small Business Edition and was up and running in less than a day. i365 proved to be the best fit in terms of cost, security, and simplicity, providing fully flexible, end-to-end backup encryption, automated alerts and notifications, and a more engaged, knowledgeable customer service team. In short order the offering has helped to ensure privacy and security of client information and compliance with all applicable statutes regarding data security and retention.

“More than 22,000 businesses and organizations rely on i365 to ensure their critical data is protected and easily recoverable. For smaller firms that lack internal IT resources, it’s critical that they protect their confidential case work with a reliable solution,” said Valerie Fawzi, senior director product marketing with i365, A Seagate Company. “By entrusting their electronically stored information to i365’s EVault SaaS online backup, companies like Mello & Pickering, LLP can rest assured their sensitive data is safely protected.”

As a member of American Bar Association (ABA), Mello & Pickering, LLP received a member’s only discount on the purchase of the EVault SaaS Solution. In December 2008, i365 announced an agreement with the ABA to offer the more than 400,000 ABA members discounted pricing on i365 EVault™ online backup and recovery Software, Software as a Service (SaaS) and Managed Service solutions With the launch of this program, ABA members now have access to industry leading services and solutions that satisfy their stringent data security and compliance requirements at a price that meets their business needs.
