OwnBackup, a leading cloud-to-cloud data protection provider, today announced it ranked No. 38 on its FT The Americas’ Fastest Growing Companies, a report of the fastest growing companies in North, Central and South America. This is the second consecutive year OwnBackup has appeared on the list, which comprises the enterprises that contribute most heavily to economic growth.
“We’re honored to once again be recognized by the Financial Times as one of the fastest growing companies in the Americas. To be able to achieve the growth we did in such a challenging year is a testament to our customers, investors and employees,” says OwnBackup CEO Sam Gutmann.
The recognition is the latest example in a string of impressive achievements for the cloud data protection company.
In January, OwnBackup announced a Series D investment of $167.5 million co-led by Insight Partners, Salesforce Ventures, and Sapphire Ventures, with participation from existing investors Innovation Endeavors, Vertex Ventures, and Oryzn Capital. Combined with a $50 million financing round six months earlier, the company’s cumulative funding now totals over $267.5 million.
In November, OwnBackup welcomed new leadership in Asia Pacific to support growing customer demand for SaaS data protection in the ANZ market. Of OwnBackup’s more than 3,000 customers worldwide, more than 29% are based outside the U.S., with a rapidly growing list of well known brands in Australia, UK and Europe.
OwnBackup also continues to expand their platform beyond backup and recovery with data archiving and sandbox seeding capabilities, the latest step toward their vision of becoming a single pane of glass for companies to manage, backup, and secure all of their SaaS data.
To enable all of this positive momentum, OwnBackup has plans to double their over 400-person team by the end of this year. They are currently hiring for roles across all departments, including sales, marketing, customer support, product, technical support, and administration.

The rating is the result of a joint project by the Financial Times and Statista. The results were achieved by conducting months of research, public calls, intensive database research and directly contacting tens of thousands of companies.
