Mississauga, ON — May 5, 2015 — KeepItSafe, a premium, fully managed and monitored service for online disaster recovery and data backup, and a brand of j2 Global, Inc. (NASDAQ:JCOM), today announced the opening of its first Canadian office in Mississauga, Ontario. The company set up the new facility in response to the rapid growth they have experienced in the 12 months since launching KeepItSafe Canada in 2014.
KeepItSafe operates bicoastal infrastructure with data centres in Toronto and Vancouver. All protected customer data is completely redundant between both Canada-based data centres.
“We’ve gained rapid adoption in Canada and have responded with a local office, staffed with skilled employees, servicing local companies,” said Jonathan Crowe, Managing Director for the Americas and Pacific Region for KeepItSafe. “The growth here occurred rapidly and we are pleased to ramp up our presence as a result.”
“Canadian businesses are rightfully concerned with the security, integrity, and the country of location of their data — and looking for a data protection service proven to be worthy of their trust,” said Hemi Zucker, CEO of j2 Global. “We invested and are able to meet that need — providing our customers not only the highest levels of data security at all times but, equally important, the peace of mind that comes with it.”
KeepItSafe Canada’s new offices will be located in one of the premier business areas in the country in Mississauga, Ontario. The location provides a first-class office environment with easy access and the opportunity to scale as the team grows.
