Scout

The Probax-designed Scout application provides a link between our cloud storage and the End User’s local backups. This allows us to automatically identify and fix common backup problems.

Finds it. Fixes it. Reports it.

Scout is designed to fix existing backup software and cloud replication issues. We work with StorageCraft® software to ensure your End Users always have a healthy backup chain.

Scout identifies and fixes broken backup chains and individual file corruption issues automatically, with no manual intervention. Scout is not intended to be exclusively developed around ShadowProtect®. It will enhance Veeam® and FilePlus backups, as well as providing a range of other functions.

Why MSPs Love Scout

Across our partner network, there are thousands of machines being protected by ShadowProtect®.

Scout easily remedies the two most common sources of pain that our partners report which can happen for a multitude of reasons. Scout solves both these issues, with automatic fixes and reporting on what’s been fixed.
