Nominated for the 2012 Small Business Influencer Awards in:

Symform is a disruptive, free and secure cloud storage and backup service for SBMs. The Symform Global Cloud Storage Network protects SBMs data, business and bottom line. Unlike traditional data center storage, Symform's global network encrypts, shreds and geo-distributes data, providing greater security, higher performance and more cost-effective cloud data storage and backup than any alternative today. SMB customers join the Symform network by contributing excess local storage and, in exchange, receive affordable, unlimited cloud backup. Because of this unique data storage model, Symform differentiates itself in the market by pure economics it is the only solution that can offer SMBs up to 200GB of free cloud storage and the only company that offers unlimited data storage for a monthly flat fee.


The U.S. Small Business Administration estimates that 25% of businesses do not reopen after a major data loss. Currently, at least 15% of SMBs are doing absolutely no data backup, according to IDC, and 60% are only backing up data on-site. This is because the cloud storage model is broken. Praerit Garg, Symform's co-founder set out to give SMBs access to affordable, secure and high performing data storage solutions. He built Symform to disrupt the SMB market as the first peer-to-peer distributed cloud storage offering, giving up to 200 GB for free. Other providers charge per gigabyte and for other features, such as restore or increased bandwidth. Symform also achieves faster performance, as it optimizes for parallel Internet connections and geo-distribution of data. It is third-party tested to be more secure than traditional datacenter-based storage, as the data is chopped, encrypted, shredded and geo-spread – making it impossible for any threat or person to compromise the data.
