FT The Americas Fastest GrowingThe Financial Times (FT) recently announced that OwnBackup is No. 25 on its first annual FT The Americas’ Fastest Growing Companies, a ranking and special report of the fastest growing companies in North, Central and South America. The list represents innovative and fast-growing companies who are the driving force of the international economy, generating jobs, and sustaining market competitiveness.

The recognition comes just days after OwnBackup launched the OwnBackup Gratitude program, created to provide complimentary data backup and recovery services to healthcare organizations during the global health crisis. Inspired by Salesforce’s commitment to provide free Health Cloud access for emergency response teams, care management teams, and health systems, OwnBackup Gratitude enables new and existing Salesforce Health Cloud users to quickly safeguard and restore any patient health information that may have been deleted or compromised. 

“We’re honored to be recognized by the Financial Times as one of the fastest growing companies in the Americas. Thanks to OwnBackup’s dedicated customers, motivated employees, and innovative products, what began as a data recovery start up just a few years ago has grown into a global leader in SaaS business continuity and data protection solutions,” says OwnBackup CEO Sam Gutmann. “More importantly, our success has put us in a position to help organizations in need during difficult times, specifically those in the healthcare industry who are faced with a massive influx of new, highly sensitive patient information.”

As the importance of business continuity and data protection continues to grow, so has OwnBackup. Recently named the second fastest growing tech company in New Jersey as part of Inc’s fastest-growing private companies list, OwnBackup is currently hiring for roles in sales, marketing, customer support, product, technical support, and administration.
