Minneapolis — Aug 22, 2013 

Code42, developers of award-winning, private and public cloud-based endpoint backup solutions for consumers, businesses and the enterprise, today announced the company’s CrashPlan backup solution has been named a KMWorld 2013 Trend-Setting Product for its commitment to innovation and its customers.

The KMWorld 2013 Trend-Setting Products list and Code42 company profile are available online at and in the September 2013 issue of KMWorld, available online Sept. 1.

Products selected for the 2013 list have all demonstrated a commitment to innovation and their customers, as well as defining and enhancing a market critically important to KMWorld’s readership by listening to and working with customers.

“Code42’s CrashPlan was selected by the panel because it demonstrates thoughtful, well-reasoned innovation and execution for the most important constituency of them all—the customer,” said Hugh McKellar, editor-in-chief of KMWorld.

The KMWorld Trend-Setting Products list is created through consultation and collaboration with editorial colleagues, analysts, system integrators, vendors, line-of-business managers and users. This year’s judging panel reviewed more than 700 offerings from some 300 vendors that were narrowed down to the final 75 products featured on the list. All products selected demonstrate clearly identifiable technology breakthroughs that serve the vendors’ full spectrum of constituencies.

“Our job is to worry about and safeguard our customers’ data so they don’t have to,” said Matthew Dornquast, co-founder and chief executive officer of Code42. “KMWorld’s recognition comes largely thanks to them, and we couldn’t be more proud of that. We’ll continue working hard for our customers, innovating to meet their ongoing data management needs.”

Code42’s award-winning data backup solution CrashPlan safeguards data on more than a million endpoints and for more than 5,000 companies globally, including Adobe, Netflix, NASA and The University of Texas. This recognition by KMWorld adds to the list of recent awards Code42 has received, including being named a top online backup solution/service by The Wall Street Journal, USA Today, Lifehacker, The New York Times, PCWorld and InformationWeek; a 2012 Macworld Editor’s Choice Award; and a Lifehacker 2013 “Best Mac App,” “Best Windows App” and “Most Popular Online Backup Service.”
