Dropsuite expands into South America with UOL
SINGAPORE (PRWEB) April 16, 2018
Dropsuite Limited (ASX: DSE), a leading cloud data backup platform for small and medium businesses (SMBs) announced that UOL, the largest online content and digital services company in Brazil, will differentiate its business by providing a fully automated email backup solution to UOL email customers in South America. Email backup will be rolled out in stages to the collective email systems that UOL supports such as UOL Mail, BOL Mail, Office 365 and other email systems.
Email backup and quick recovery of data acts as a type of “insurance plan” to counter the high cost of business downtime that can result from the accidental deletion of files or other types of unexpected email loss.
For this partnership, Dropsuite and UOL created a custom interface that provides a seamless UOL-branded experience for their customers, localized into Portuguese. Dropsuite Email Backup is bundled into new UOL email purchases, providing instant, automated email backups in the cloud. This is accomplished through an API integration that utilizes OAUTH tokens. The result is that no end user set up or configuration is required. Email backups start automatically whenever a new email sign up is detected.
“UOL evaluated multiple vendors before selecting Dropsuite as the best email backup solution provider for our customers,” said Marcelo Varon, Director of Digital Products at UOL. “With Dropsuite, we are able to quickly integrate and deploy a simple, secure and affordable way to protect emails against accidental deletion of files.”
“Safeguarding business data and preventing downtime is what Dropsuite is all about,” said Ridley Ruth, Dropsuite’s COO. “We are thrilled to partner with UOL to bring email backup protection to the Brazilian market.”
Dropsuite follows a security assurance program that uses global privacy and data protection best practices to ensure all data is safe. For UOL, this means that all customer email content is stored in a local Brazilian cloud data center and will not move or be replicated outside of Brazil without UOL’s prior consent. Additionally, all customer data is safeguarded with 256-bit encryption at rest and in transit.
