Alliance delivers online backup and recovery.

BitDefender UK : 10 April, 2008  (Company News)
SOS Online Backup and BitDefender combine resources to provide protection against data loss with online backup and recovery.
BitDefender and SOS Online Backup have joined forces to deliver an integrated online storage, backup and recovery solution, designed to protect BitDefender's business and consumer customers against data loss or deletion due to harmful Internet attacks and system failures.

Offered as BitDefender Online Backup, the service provides BitDefender's customers with the latest in online, offsite storage and backup technology allowing customers to quickly, easily, and cost effectively protect their valuable data. SOS's innovative technology backs up files to a global network of datacenters powered by SOS Servers. The data is compressed using SOS ShrinkRAP delta compression prior to transfer, ensuring only binary changes made to the files are sent over the network, significantly reducing bandwidth consumption, and allowing the user to store an unlimited number of versions of any given file.

Starting with BitDefender Total Security 2009 - scheduled for release later this year -- BitDefender home users will be able to use the online backup capabilities through the seamlessly integrated backup module. Customers of earlier versions may compliment and complete their proactive protection by adding BitDefender Online Backup as an option.

"At BitDefender, we are focused on proactive protection," said Vince Hwang, BitDefender director of product management. "Under this vision, proactive protection goes beyond just security. It also considers the integrity of the data. By working with SOS Online Backup, we offer our customers not only an industry leading proactive solution, but also integrated continuous real-time backup of any file that offers peace of mind from data loss that can occur from internet threats, system failures, and unforeseen disasters."

BitDefender Online Backup will be made available to business customers as both a standalone solution and as part of a comprehensive business suite. BitDefender Online Backup for businesses will be offered in various storage capacity subscription models with support for an unlimited number of users. Customers can choose the amount of storage that is right for their organisation to start and can easily upgrade their storage space from time to time as their needs grow.

"At SOS Tech, our mission is to help consumers, small businesses, and enterprises properly protect the investment they've made in their data quickly, easily, and cost effectively," said Ken Shaw, Director of Engineering. "By partnering with BitDefender, we are able to provide our award-winning capabilities to a greater audience, and couple it with award-winning security solutions."

BitDefender will be participating at the forthcoming Infosecurity Europe 2008 expo, opening at Olympia on 22 April.
