CrashPlan provides secure, real-time backup, archiving, and versioning of files for Cornell computers. This helps protect users from ransomware attacks and fraud, and streamlines the process of transitioning files to a new computer. (Server backup uses the EZ-Backup service.)
CrashPlan is part of the Certified Desktop suite of security tools and can generally be found on university-managed computers.
Don't Have CrashPlan But Want to Get It?
- End users interested in CrashPlan for their Cornell computer should reach out to a local technical support representative about the availability of the service for their unit.
- Cornell unit IT staff who would like to bring CrashPlan to end users should ask their local IT Director or ITSG representative about getting Certified Desktop.
- IT Directors or ITSG representatives can contact the IT Service Desk. Let them know what unit or department you are responsible for; this will start the process of connecting you with CIT staff who can help.
