CAMBRIDGE, Mass.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Backupify, the leading provider of online backup, archiving and export services for cloud-based data, today announced the availability of its backup and archival solution for Facebook Fan Pages. Backupify now provides users with the most comprehensive and effective Facebook backup solution on the market, allowing users to backup all Facebook data from a unified account. Backupify adds Fan Page support to its already comprehensive protection of critical Facebook data, including News Feeds, Wall Posts, Photo Albums and Messages. For a limited time, Backupify will provide a free trial of the service.
Facebook continues to emerge as a vital business and marketing platform for corporations and government agencies. These organizations must ensure that their Facebook accounts and data are properly protected. Backupify for Facebook makes it easy to avoid data loss and to mitigate the risks associated with hacking, corruption, deletion and user error. In addition, Fan Page backup enables organizations to successfully comply with records retention and data reproduction requirements.
“At Facebook, we’re seeing explosive growth spurred by businesses and government agencies that use Facebook to engage with customers and constituents,” said Adam Conner, Associate Manager for Privacy and Global Public Policy of Facebook. “With the aid of independent solutions like Backupify, organizations can confidently broaden their use of Facebook with the knowledge that their data management, records retention and compliance issues are now addressed.”
Now enhanced to leverage the latest Open Graph API, Backupify for Facebook is designed to mitigate data loss concerns and satisfy compliance audits by providing independent backups of all of a user’s Facebook data through a single service – a feat unmatched in the marketplace today. In addition to News Feeds, Wall Posts, Photo Albums and Messages associated with any Facebook Fan Page or Profile, Backupify for Facebook also saves any Photos, Videos or Wall Posts that tagged a specific account even if the original poster removes the content.
"In the last few months New Marketing Labs has gained over 1,000 ’likes,’ bringing us up to over 1,400 fans. These connections are vital to our business, so if we were to ever lose them, we'd never be able to get them back,” said Justin Levy, General Manager of New Marketing Labs. “Backupify’s Fan Page backup is easy and cost-effective to use, and provides us with the peace of mind that we won't lose any of our vital communications and contacts. I highly recommend the solution to businesses and organizations seeking to prevent any single point of data loss."
Due to the unprecedented adoption of Facebook and other social media sites, the opportunity for accidental deletion caused by ownership changes, lost passwords and a general unfamiliarity of these platforms is a real and present danger. Automated backups ensure that businesses and government agencies are protected against data loss and maintain a record of all of their Facebook activity, including friends, fans, shared content and interactions.
“The Backupify for Facebook solution signifies another step forward in our mission to provide users with complete control and access to their cloud-based data,” said Rob May, CEO of Backupify. “As Facebook’s membership and usage rates continue to increase, it is imperative that an independent backup solution emerges that is specifically built to address stringent business and government requirements. As organizations increasingly gather information and interact with over 150 million Facebook users, we are thrilled to provide the most comprehensive solution that protects this data from loss and fosters compliance with a wide-range of records retention and data compliance policies.”
