Using the ABE to back up a corporate network
Backing up data files in a corporate network environment is what all the advanced
features of the Active Backup Expert are designed for (see
the feature list). We offer you a software that fits the most flexible backup
strategies you may want to implement in your company network. We also offer good quantity
discounts: a 25-user license will cost you almost a half of the price (see the price list).

device. You can back up local or network files to FTP.
