Your website is a huge part of your business and, in some cases, the only part. Having your website down for a long period time due to infection, malware or other technical issues could mean a huge loss to you and your company. While there are plenty of providers that focus on data recovery and backup, CodeGuard (founded in 2010) has a few key differentiating factors. One thing that sets CodeGuard apart is its method of data backup. The CodeGuard system conserves space on hosting provider’s servers by comparing the prior version of the site to the current version and only saving the differences. CodeGuard also doesn’t require any software installations, and is able to send alerts via email or through the mobile app to customers whenever a change is detected in the customer’s website.
The company has raised around $2 million in funding from Imlay Investments, ProFounder, angel investors such as Palaniswamy Rajan, Bert Ellis, and Tom Noonan, as well as investments from the founders. CodeGuard was also the Audience Choice winner at TechCrunch Disrupt in 2011 and has been featured in Inc Magazine and USA Today. Co-founder David Moeller tells us that CodeGuard’s other awards include Venture Atlanta Audience Choice 2011, MIT Enterprise Forum Audience Choice 2011, TAG Top 40 Innovative Company in Georgia, and 2014 TAG/SSA Impact Finalists and Corporate Internal Software Development Group.
CodeGuard is located in Atlanta. The city has provided the network and roots necessary for CodeGuard’s growth. “We started at ATDC and were a part of the Flashpoint incubator,” shares Moeller. “We have enjoyed being a part of the Atlanta community.”
