EVault, a Seagate Company, is a backup and recovery provider and a wholly owned subsidiary of Seagate Technology. EVault and its partner network develop and support on-premises, cloud-based, and hybrid backup and recovery services for midmarket customers in need of data backup, data recovery, disaster recovery, regulatory compliance, and cloud storage or online backup services. The company primarily services customers in heavily regulated industries—financial services, legal, health care—as well as in government, education, telecommunications, and charity/nonprofit. Headquartered in San Francisco, California, USA, the company has sales, service, and data center operations in North America and EMEA (Europe, Middle East, and Africa).
EVault was founded in 1997 as a cloud services company. By 2006 EVault had become, through revenues and acquisitions (including the Open File Manager product line from St. Bernard Software), one of the fastest-growing technology companies in North America. Seagate Technology, which had acquired ActionFront Data Recovery Labs in November, 2005 and launched Seagate Recovery Services, added EVault in 2007. In 2007 Seagate also acquired MetaLINCS, which provides E-Discovery software and managed service solutions.
In September 2008, Seagate rebranded these acquisitions, which had been operating as a division of Seagate under the name Seagate Services, as a new entity, formally named i365, a Seagate Company. Seagate Recovery Services was taken from the i365 basket in 2011. In December 2011, the EVault name was restored in light of its greater cachet in the marketplace.
