About OwnBackup

#1 SaaS Data Protection Platform
Data loss can be devastating. Whether it’s caused by human error, bad code, rogue integrations, or malicious intent; all companies are at risk. OwnBackup is the #1 data backup, archiving, and sandbox seeding app on the Salesforce AppExchange. With over 4,000 customers, we are ranked on the Forbes Cloud 100 as one of the world's top private cloud companies, and have raised $490 million in venture funding.

Our Story

In 2003, our CTO 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 for Salesforce with over 4,000 customers across every industry.
