MIT Selects Code42 for Campus-wide Deployment of Endpoint Backup
Top technical university trusts CrashPlan enterprise endpoint backup to protect and manage its critical data
Minneapolis — Jul 15, 2014
Code42, the leader in endpoint data protection and management, today announced that Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT), a premier institution of higher learning for sciences, engineering and technology, selected CrashPlan for Enterprise to protect and manage the university’s end-user data.
After a thorough vetting process, MIT chose CrashPlan enterprise endpoint backup via the Internet2 NET+ service to protect the laptops and desktops of faculty, staff and students. Today’s announcement adds to a growing list of top universities that have selected CrashPlan through Internet2—a member-owned, advanced technology community of more than 250 United States universities—which last year named Code42 as its only vendor for endpoint backup.
Feedback from the MIT user community prompted the search for a new backup solution; users indicated the need for an easier interface, with the ability to protect larger amounts of data located beyond the university’s own data center. MIT selected CrashPlan based on a number of factors, including Internet2 NET+ peer reviews, the overall user experience and competitive pricing. With CrashPlan, MIT offers users an enhanced backup experience while making it easier for users to access and restore data on their own—from any device, anywhere.
“As one of the leading technology institutions in the country, the work of MIT faculty, staff and students requires the best protection available,” said Brian Bell, president and chief operating officer at Code42. “MIT’s selection of Code42—along with the tremendous, overall success of Internet2 NET+ CrashPlan—validates our position as higher ed’s choice for endpoint data protection.”
