Complete Data Protection
Retrospect Backup provides complete protection with backup, archive, and duplicate features built-in, flexible scheduling, endpoint protection, cloud backup, block-level incremental backup, email protection, and stellar support.
Retrospect Backup can perform an incremental backup of your entire system in under ten minutes, including a complete snapshot of your file structure for a perfect restore. It's one of the fastest backups on the market.
Every Major Platform
Retrospect Backup provides protection for every major platform with the support for the latest versions as well as versions from a decade ago–from Microsoft Windows Vista to Windows 10 October 2018 Update, Windows Server 2003 to Windows Server 2019, and Apple OS X Snow Leopard (10.6) to macOS Mojave as well as Linux, VMare, Hyper-V, SQL, Exchange, and IMAP.
Enabling remote backup requires minimal configuration on the server-side network and no changes for the remote employee's network, and it supports proactive scripts–with ProactiveAI–for backup when employees are online and on-demand restore for employees to get files back without assistance.
