About OwnBackup

#1 SaaS Data Protection Platform

OwnBackup is a leading SaaS data protection platform for some of the largest SaaS ecosystems in the world, including Salesforce, Microsoft Dynamics 365, and ServiceNow. Through capabilities like data security, backup and recovery, archiving, and sandbox seeding, we empower organizations worldwide to manage and protect the mission-critical data that drives their business. With over 6,000 customers, we are ranked on the Forbes Cloud 100 as one of the world's top private cloud companies, and have raised over $500M in venture funding.

Our Story

In 2003, our Co-Founder Ariel Berkman began working on recovering data from various physical digital media. Eventually, he started to experiment to see if he could potentially recover lost data from the cloud, and decided to test out a solution within the B2B space. That’s when Ariel and our CEO Sam Gutmann realized that all SaaS companies operate using a shared responsibility model, and there was a huge opportunity to protect the cloud data that these companies relied on.

What do we mean by shared responsibility? Think about your CRM platform as a multi-tenant apartment building. As a renter, you shouldn’t have to worry about the building’s structural integrity, power going out, or the maintenance of shared spaces and amenities. But what happens on the inside of your unit (i.e., your instance of Salesforce), like accidentally deleting data, is your responsibility.

It’s this concept that has led us to where we are today: the number one SaaS Data Protection Platform with over 6,000 customers across every industry.

Our Values

As we grow and evolve, our core values continue to guide everything we do.

We take our work seriously, but not ourselves.
Culture is as important as results.
We care about everything we do.
We build trust through transparency.
We’re always driving forward.


Meet the people who lead our teams to protect mission-critical SaaS data for customers around the world.
