After reviewing a user's system I came across what appeared to be a PUP but wanted to run it by you guys to see if it's a legit, reliable backup solution.  It's called Cloudbackup539.  Naturally, we don't want users using third party backup software for obvious reasons.  I'm curious though with the solution they used here if there were security controls in place with that software i.e. encryption, etc.  I know nothing about Cloudbackup539.  Any input is greatly appreciated.

Upload the executable to https://www.virustotal.com/ for analysis, or try to use dependency walker or other product PE Explorer to find out info about the program & company.

But usually, if the marketing info of a program like company, build/version, etc is not easily findable, it's because it's concealed =meaning= BAD business, get rid of it.
-And after that do a full scan with an enterprise antivirus and a trojan killer (Spybot S&D, Malwarebytes AntiMalware, etc).
