UltraBac Software and AscendoSoft Establish Partnership to Market Data Protection Software to Credit Unions and Community Banks
Bellevue, Wash. and Redmond, Wash. - (November 17, 2009) - UltraBac Software, a leading provider of reliable, fast, and innovative backup and disaster recovery software, and AscendoSoft Inc., a software and services Value-Added Reseller with extensive Credit Union experience, today announced a strategic partnership to market UltraBac Software's product suite to Credit Unions and Community Banks.
"We're looking forward to working with AscendoSoft," said Shelley Riley, Director of Sales at UltraBac Software. "While we have been growing significantly over the past several years, AscendoSoft will be leveraging their expertise in Credit Unions and Banking applications to expand our reach into these targeted markets. We see this new vertical market strategy as one that will elevate UltraBac's visibility and distinguish us from our competition, while generating significant incremental revenue."
Financial institutions must have a strategy in place to recover from critical server failures and site-wide disasters. A combination of image-based and file-by-file backup is essential for a sound server backup and recovery plan. Image-based backup is the cornerstone of a sound business continuity plan that provides continued customer and member account access in the event of a disaster. The combination of government regulation and high service expectations puts a premium business priority on insuring these plans are in place.
"UltraBac has proven Data Protection and Business Continuity software and a great reputation for providing first class customer service over the last 27 years. This is in-line with our company strategy of partnering with customer-focused software companies," said AscendoSoft co-founder James Holck. "UltraBac and UBDR Gold will provide Credit Unions and Banks a proven and efficient means of protecting their investment in their Core Application. Speedy and reliable recovery from a server outage or from a site disaster will ensure that they can meet government mandates and not impact service to customers and members."
