For immediate release, Singapore, April 21 st2014– GMO Pepabo, Inc.(GMO Pepabo), one of Japan’s biggest web hosting firms, will now provide its “LOLIPOP! Web/DB backup service”, powered by Dropmysite’s award-winning backup technology, to its 392,000 customers.
Dropmysite is a Singaporean firm that provides a comprehensive cloud-based backup solution that keeps websites and databases safe. GMO Pepabo, a JASDAQ-listed firm, signed a deal with Dropmysite in November ’13 to create products to safeguard its LOLIPOP! rental servers.
“From today onwards, we are proud to provide our LOLIPOP! users a new system for backing up their data which employs Dropmysite’s technology” says Sato Kentaro, President of GMO Pepabo.
With increasing online threats to personal information such as hacking, viruses and system failure, there is a huge need for cyber security. This need results in a high cost in acquiring additional servers, as well as a need for skilled technicians and careful management of data – which can be challenging for small or medium sized enterprises.
At GMO Pepabo, the website backup product was built to be safe, easy to useand economical. LOLIPOP! users will be able to backup up to seven generations of data with a single click. Backups can also be automatically scheduled and are always secured by industry standard AES256 encryption. At a monthly fee of only\300JPY (or $3.90 SGD, without VAT), excluding tax, it is definitely affordable for everyone.
Having the opportunity to integrate technologies with a highly regarded corporation like GMO Pepabo, was an eye-opening experience for Dropmysite.
“It has been great working with GMO Pepabo to see their incredible focus on the end user,” says Charif El-Ansari, CEO of Dropmysite. “Our technical and support teams took their feedback and streamlined the product to appeal to the customers.”
With this launch, Dropmysite is making its presence felt in Japan. Besides GMO Pepabo, Dropmysite is also in talks with other companies to create unique partnerships to further expand into the Japanese market. The targets will range widely from Internet Service Providers to mobile phone companies. These opportunities will open doors for Dropmysite to further expand its email backup and mobile backup products in Japan.
Beyond this deal in Japan, there are also many other similar discussions in progress around the world. With a presence in every major region in the world, Dropmysite will eventually be seen and used globally. This launch is yet another major step forward in Dropmysite’s grand goal of providing backup solutions for the all of the Internet.
