Jungle Disk Announces New Software Version Including Google Cloud Platform SupportSeptember 19, 2018
Jungle Disk today announced version 3.30 of its encrypted cloud backup and storage software, which now includes Google Cloud Platform as the default storage choice. With the new version of the software, small businesses will be able to take advantage of multiple cloud platform choices, increased performance, and cross-platform HIPAA and PCI compliant collaboration with military-grade encryption to store and secure business critical data.
The addition of Google Cloud Platform in the new software version improves data recovery time for small businesses in the event of an accident or cyber attack. Also, customers who choose to store data on Google Cloud Platform through the Jungle Disk software gain the advantage of geo-replicated data protection without the complexity of integrating into cloud APIs themselves. This ensures that if there is an outage in a single data center it will not impact daily business operations of a customer’s Jungle Disk powered cloud based file server.
"At Jungle Disk, we take data privacy seriously and want to ensure that our small business customers have access to enterprise-grade cybersecurity products, technology and expertise to help keep their critical data safe," said Bret Piatt, CEO at Jungle Disk. "Given the rise in cyberattacks and the major effects that data loss has on small businesses, it is important to continue to evolve our offering to allow small businesses to increase their productivity with technology while remaining safe online."
According to the Verizon 2018 Data Breach Investigations Report, over 58 percent of data breach victims are small businesses. To address this growing cybersecurity issue, Jungle Disk’s product suite helps make it simple for small businesses to protect their critical data to prevent data loss whether it’s through a cyberattack such as ransomware, human error or natural disaster.
