Otta's take on OwnBackup

Sam Franklin headshot

Sam Franklin

CEO of Otta

The trend towards companies embracing cloud-based services has only exaggerated over the past few years, and now demand is higher than ever for complementary support services like data backup and recovery. OwnBackup is offering precisely this to a market-leading standard, principally to Salesforce customers.

Achieving Unicorn status in 2021, OwnBackup embarked on a series of strategic acquisitions; including Nimmetry, which facilitated expansion into the Indian market; and Merlinx, which added elite data security talent to OwnBackup’s team. With Salesforce commanding a giant share of the SaaS cloud market, the company has locked in to lucrative and expanding market, attracting a well-financed and growing customer base.

OwnBackup has made strides to maintain pole position in the market, such as expanding its leadership team and releasing complimentary offerings to its product suite. The company has not, however, been immune to the larger economy at play, highlighted by cuts to the workforce in 2022. Despite this, the company's strong history of success bodes well for its operation into the future.
