Founded in 2011 by husband and wife, Greg and Mary Smith, Capstorm began as a classic entrepreneurial “basement start-up” to meet a crucial Salesforce® backup need. It quickly evolved into a fast-growth B2B software company that serves blue-chip companies across a variety of vertical markets.
Key to Capstorm’s differentiated position in the market is their partnership with Salesforce® and their technology that allows for point and click restoration of Salesforce® data, including maintaining all relationships in the database. Capstorm is driven by two core beliefs that 1) a Salesforce® backup should be fully accessible and easily verifiable and 2) a Salesforce® recovery solution should be useful for more than just disaster recovery. These philosophies drive ongoing application development and are key to Capstorm’s success as the leading technology in Salesforce® backup and restore.
Capstorm is located in Santa Rosa Beach, Florida.
