Universe Point announces the launch of ION, the first backup software to offer a third party monitoring service. The service operates much like a home security system and alerts the user to errors in their automated backup processes. ION is available now through http://www.universepoint.com or by calling 610-352-1150.

Universe Point announces the launch of ION, the first monitored backup software. ION revolutionizes the field of data backup by adding a third-party monitoring service to an in-house backup solution.

"We discovered during our time as IT professionals," says Universe Point CEO Jeff Snader, "that most of our clients had no idea whether or not their backup software was working, and, frighteningly, we often discovered that it wasn't. Eventually the repetition of this scenario convinced us that something needed to be done."

Snader and Universe Point co-founder, Dan Heckman, left their IT company in pursuit of this new idea; backup software that is easy to use and alerts the user when backup processes fail. They designed a straight-forward, intuitive piece of backup software, and a monitoring center to compliment it.

"Basically," says CIO Dan Heckman, "we think of this program like a home security system. Something goes wrong, and we give you a call. We eliminate the doubt and fear and make life easier on the small business managers and the IT guys."

Backups can fail for a variety of reasons including lack of drive space, inadequate permissions, transfer errors and countless other minor causes. Many users, in the experience of Universe Point's founders, don't discover these errors until they attempt to recover lost data, and by then its too late. ION is designed specifically to prevent such a catastrophic experience.

ION is available now at specially reduced introductory prices. Fully trained, monitoring technicians are also in place to track backup jobs and alert clients to failures. Interested parties should visit http://www.universepoint.com for detailed information and downloads, or call the company at 610-352-1150.

Universe Point is based in Upper Darby, PA and was founded in 2006. The software company is dedicated to the idea that data backup should be simple and worry-free.
