"...The TOLIS Group purchased the BRU intellectual property rights and other technology from Atipa Corporation of Kansas City, Missouri. Atipa was the parent corporation of Enhanced Software Technologies, Inc. of Phoenix, Arizona, the original producer of BRU. The TOLIS Group was formed by a group of industry-respected individuals to address the growing need for highly reliable and functional solutions to protect today's critical data.

"Atipa has always believed that BRU is a best-in-breed technology that is well-positioned to expand marketshare in the years ahead," said Darrek Porter, Director of Corporate Communications for Atipa. "While Atipa had to make the difficult decision to focus the whole of its corporate resources on another growing subsidiary, we are pleased to have reached an agreement with the TOLIS Group that will enable BRU to live on and prosper under the guidance of this talented management team," he added.

"BRU is arguably the best backup engine in the marketplace today, and the solutions we'll be bringing to market will be very exciting," said Tim Jones, president & CTO of the TOLIS Group and former vice president of development at Enhanced Software Technologies. "Our solutions will incorporate the inherent reliability of BRU, coupled with the additional functionality required in today's marketplace. BRU's roots will be sprouting new branches."
