Allows owners to protect, share and sync data remotely
Trend Micro, an Internet content security company, has launched its new cloud-based offering Trend Micro SafeSync for Business.
The new offering is aimed to help small companies to securely save, manage and access their digital files from anywhere at any time. It is also expected to increase productivity by enabling file sharing between co-workers and clients.
SafeSync also keeps an additional, up to date, copy in the cloud which could be used in case of hardware failure or loss.
SafeSync eliminates the need to manually move files from one PC to another, which is not only time-consuming but more subject to data loss, said the company.
Among other features of the offering are: no file size limits and folder permissions; multiple users per account; continuous, automatic file synchronisation; video and music streaming to compatible hand-held devices; centralised management for administrator; and deleted file recovery with unlimited versioning.
"We know that the majority of small business owners are juggling multiple devices and don’t have a server to help backup and protect their sensitive data," said Dan Conlon, Engineering Director and Developer at Trend Micro.
"We’re excited to be able to offer an affordable and easy-to-use solution to protect their files whether they’re in the office, at home or on the road that won’t slow them down."
SafeSync for Business is now available in the US and as well as all of Europe, Middle East and Africa with English, Spanish, Italian, French and German language versions being made available at launch. It will be available in Japan in Q3 of 2011. Pricing starts at £56.00 per user (50GB), per year.
