Spanning Extends Data Protection and Availability to Force.com Applications

Companies Make Use of Spanning Backup to Protect More Than 300 Million Salesforce Objects, Metadata and Integrations with Custom and Third-Party SaaS Apps

AUSTIN, Texas – October 6, 2014–(BUSINESS WIRE)– Spanning Cloud Apps, the most trusted provider of data backup and recovery for cloud applications, today announced expanded Salesforce data backup and restore support for any customized application created with Force.com. In the year since launching Spanning Backup for Salesforce, the company has worked with forward-thinking organizations to mitigate risk of data loss through automated daily backup of not only core Salesforce data, but also metadata and integrations with other critical SaaS applications.

“Since we first started talking about the importance of in-app, automated daily backup last year, the response has been tremendous,” said Jeff Erramouspe, Spanning CEO. “We’ve added more than 100 Salesforce customers, protected more than 300 million Salesforce objects and more than 1.5 million attachments, backed up more than 10,000 different object types created on Force.com and partnered with the most respected Salesforce consulting firms around the world. Every warning about data loss threats – whether at the hands of cyber attacks or simply user or sync errors – shows that companies need to do more to protect Salesforce data, and we remain as committed as ever to educating users on the how and why.”

“Our company uses Spanning to back up our entire Salesforce instance, including all metadata and configurations”

Most of Spanning’s customers have developed customized, data-driven applications on Force.com such as patient registration, field-equipment assessment, or insurance quoting to serve their unique business needs. It doesn’t matter how tailored an organization’s Salesforce application is, or how many custom apps they have built to enhance business processes, Spanning backs it all up automatically on a daily basis, protecting the lifeblood of an organization.

“Our company uses Spanning to back up our entire Salesforce instance, including all metadata and configurations,” said Kerry McDonough, Business Systems Administrator at SendGrid. “This is important to us as we have many integrations with other tools such as Zuora, Marketo, Zendesk, and others, as well as custom integrations with in-house systems. Losing the integration configurations would be pretty catastrophic. The data from these systems is used by every Salesforce user on our Revenue, Support, Finance and Analytics teams.”

Spanning will participate as a proud Bronze sponsor at the Dreamforce ’14 conference taking place October 13-16 in San Francisco. For detailed information on Spanning’s presence at the event and how to connect with Spanning, please visit the web site and follow Spanning on Twitter.
