Lepide was founded in 2005 initially under the name of Nucleus data recovery and as with any business, our business started with a problem that needed fixing - the problem was data recovery. And frankly what the founders of Lepide don’t know about data recovery, just isn’t worth knowing.
Within less than 3 years we became known in the industry as the leaders in the field of Data recovery, trusted by some of the world’s largest brands to help them fix their data recovery challenges. While on this journey we also found many companies were also struggling with Exchange issues, in particular fixing corrupt Exchange Servers so we developed our Exchange Recovery Management platform which is now a hugely successful solution for Lepide.
We also quickly recognised there were two other key areas of IT that were not properly being served – the first was Exchange (and later Office 365) Migration and the second was Change Auditing and monitoring (in particular across Windows based environments). So to address the migration challenges we launched our LepideMigrator range which made it easy for organisations to migrate to and from either Exchange, Office 365, SharePoint etc. While we weren’t the first to offer these types of solutions – we believe ours is the easiest to use and best value for money. With regards to the auditing and monitoring problems we saw in the market– we were particularly concerned with the lack of choice, ease of use or affordability of the other solutions available on the market. Frankly – we felt the options were too expensive, too complicated and were demanding unrealistic price points. Our answer to this was LepideAuditor. A simple, affordable and scalable means of doing everything the ‘big guys’ were doing but easier, faster and cheaper and better. Which brings us to current date – where today we have over a million customer – yes, a million customers, we’re fast becoming a force to be reckoned with across 3 key areas. Auditing, Migration and Recovery.
