CAMBRIDGE, Mass., May 2, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Backupify, the leading provider of online backup services for cloud application data, announced today that the company's Backup for Google Apps product now supports local and cloud-based files stored on Google Drive, the recently released data storage and sync solution for Google Apps users.
The Google Drive backup solution is the most recent addition to Backupify's existing services that already includes secure backup for Gmail, Google Docs, Google Calendar, Google Contacts and more.
