In 1997, the current backup provider started as ICT provider for notary offices. The company develops during this period along with the many market developments that occur at that time, as said by commercial director Roy Wichink Kruit. “In my early days as a trainee for the ICT company (Mindtime), many companies used costly, complex and less reliable backup solutions. Companies became more aware of the importance of business-critical data that must be available at any time, even after a crash”. The demand for online backup grew in that time, upon which the company decided to fully focus on this market in 2004, under the name Mindtime Backup.
