New stand-alone backup device offers improved encryption.

BullGuard : 18 March, 2008  (New Product)
BullGuard is releasing the second version of its stand-alone backup offering - the BullGuard Backup 8.0.
New features include improved encryption and compression options, a larger Online Backup Drive and a unique Support experience. BullGuard has been developing backup technologies since 2003.

With BullGuard Backup users can easily set up, schedule and configure their backups. An upgradeable 10 GB Online Backup Drive is included in the subscription. Backups to local media are also supported as are email backups for Outlook, Outlook Express, Windows Mail and Thunderbird email clients.

'My favourite new feature is the integration of our Online Drive with Windows Explorer,' says Theis Sondergaard, CTO and co-founder of BullGuard. 'The Online Drive shows up as a drive in Windows Explorer allowing users to simply drag and drop files to and from the Online Drive. This makes the Online Drive much more accessible.'

Under the default scheduling setting, BullGuard Backup 8.0 will automatically launch backup profiles to run when the computer is idle, making sure backups are performed regularly and without interrupting the user. Other scheduling options are also available.

In BullGuard Backup 8.0 files are compressed before being transferred to the Online Drive, significantly speeding up the transfer process. Users also have the option of compressing their files during storage, allowing more files to be stored. As in the previous version, files are encrypted during transfer, but users can now also choose to encrypt files during storage.

Remote access, the revolutionary new feature in BullGuard's Support structure that was first introduced in BullGuard Internet Security 8.0, is also part of BullGuard Backup 8.0. 'With remote access, users can grant our supporters temporary access to their computers. This will enable our Support team to handle questions even more efficiently', says Sondergaard. Users can access BullGuard Support 24/7 via email or live chat.
