Subscribers can access their backed up data via the internet
Carbonite, a provider of online backup services, has announced the addition of remote file access to its online backup service.
Beginning March 16, 2009, all customers using Carbonite Online Backup can access their files via the internet from any computer with internet access and a browser.
The remote access feature is expected to add a layer of convenience to the Carbonite Online Backup service, as subscribers will be able to access their backed up data anywhere. Users log on to the company’s website and go to the remote access tab on the navigation bar, where they can securely download individual files without any need for plugins or other software.
David Friend, co-founder and CEO of Carbonite, said: Remote access is a feature our users have been eager for us to include because it gives them the freedom to access their backed-up files even when they’re not at home. We continue to add features that directly address what consumers want and need. Remote access is one of several enhancements we have made recently, and we have more exciting product developments coming in the near future.
