Symantec launches Norton Online Backup web service (with video)
Posted on 20-Mar-2009 10:14 | Tags Filed under: News



Symantec Corp. has announced the availability of Norton Online Backup, a secured, easy-to-use online backup service that automatically keeps files and digital assets safe and easily accessible.

This is the first Web-based consumer offering delivered by Norton.

Up to five household computers can be backed up, managed and restored through a single, central, remotely accessible account. Once a small desktop agent is downloaded and manages a backup of the PC, a Web browser is all that is required to restore or download previously backed up files from anywhere.

The secure and easy to use Web interface simplifies backup management, allowing customers to manage, access and restore all of their backed-up files from any supported Internet browser anytime, anywhere.

"From digital photographs to critical financial documents and archived email, more and more of our most valuable assets are stored on computers," said Rowan Trollope, senior vice president, Consumer Products, Symantec. "Norton Online Backup offers total peace of mind through a comprehensive, easy-to-manage backup solution that not only safeguards users from data loss, but makes valuable assets available from any Internet-connected PC in the world."

The software automatic runs backups during periods of inactivity or on a user-defined schedule. The service delivers 25 gigabytes (GB) of online storage, which the company says is approximately enough space to store more than 6,000 songs, 7,000 digital photos, 100 hours of video content or 200,000 spreadsheets.

Backups are compressed and block-level incremental backups help speed up the process once the first initial backup is completed.

Norton Online Backup is available now for purchase in the U.S. through the Symantec online store and is planned to be available worldwide in the coming weeks.

The suggested retail price for Norton Online Backup is US$49.99 per year, which includes 25 GB of online storage to backup files from up to five of your family PCs. Additional storage space can be purchased in increments of 10, 25, 50 and 100 GB.
