Intronis, now part of Barracuda MSP, focused heavily on the MSP and SMB software sectors. In stark contrast, OwnBackup appears to focus on CIO- and enterprise-level opportunities to protect Salesforce and other major SaaS applications.
In a prepared statement about the funding, Gutmann said:
“This oversubscribed round signifies investors’ recognition of our early dominance in a huge addressable market. In today’s uncertain climate, more CIOs and CEOs realize the importance of building greater resiliency into their business. We’re committed to keeping their operations running around the clock with enterprise-grade, set-it-and-forget-it monitoring and recovery—both during the COVID-19 pandemic and over the long term.”
Matt Garratt, managing partner, Salesforce Ventures
Added Matt Garratt, managing partner at Salesforce Ventures:
“OwnBackup provides automated and fast data protection so customers can feel confident that their business data is always protected. OwnBackup has been a long standing Salesforce partner on AppExchange, and we are pleased to continue to support their growth with this new investment to drive further innovation for customers.”
Concluded Nikitas Koutoupes, managing director at Insight Partners:
“OwnBackup is the business continuity partner of choice for forward-thinking enterprise CIOs, and has achieved incredible growth and customer success in the five years since it was founded, With the backup and recovery market expected to surpass $18 billion by 2026, there’s massive untapped potential for OwnBackup’s stellar team and proven solutions. We believe demand for the company’s products will continue to soar, both within the Salesforce ecosystem and beyond.”
