Clumio’s SaaS platform enables continuous innovation which provides customers rapid access to new features on a bi-weekly basis. Key data sources such as Amazon S3 house some of the most critical application data, yet lack turnkey solutions for data classification and ransomware protection, leading to vulnerabilities and high costs. Clumio Protect for Amazon S3 provides a unique approach to classifying and protecting specific data with air gap ransomware protection that is optimized for cost reduction. To support better visibility in the public cloud, Clumio Discover, a cloud optimization engine, empowers customers with actionable insights to ensure data is protected and costs are optimized globally across all cloud assets.

“Clumio’s expertise in the cloud gave us confidence along every stage of our cloud journey and provided a smooth path to uninterrupted data protection,” said Derek Costa, Vice President, IT Infrastructure at Shields Health Solutions. “From ransomware avoidance, to compliance, to TCO, they met all our requirements for a comprehensive cloud data protection solution.”

Clumio’s relentless focus on customer delight has resulted in a Net Promoter score of 88 due in large part to the simplicity of the platform, proactive support, and exceptional sales experience. 87% of all customer cases are opened proactively by the Clumio Automated Proactive Support system. This includes critical system tasks like Backup and Restore failures, which are automatically tracked and triaged by Clumio support.
