30 Years of Data Protection
Retrospect Backup 1.0 was released in 1989 by Dantz Development Corporation. Since then, millions of people have used Retrospect to protect their digital information. Customers constantly write to Retrospect to talk about their data loss and how Retrospect has enabled them to restore their critical data for personal use and business continuity.
“Our school was mostly destroyed during the 2017 October Santa Rosa fire,” said Dirk Bietau, Director of IT at Cardinal Newman High School. “Retrospect engineers were able to help us recover all of the school's data from a backup, which was kept off-site.”
Retrospect will be hosting events in San Francisco, London, Paris, Frankfurt and other cities for customers and partners to join in celebrating three decades of data protection. See for more details.
