Symantec to Offer Online Backup on HP Consumer Desktop and Notebook PCs
Posted on 13-Jun-2009 08:43 | Tags Filed under: News



Symantec Corp. has announced an agreement to distribute Norton Online Backup on HP consumer desktop and notebook PCs worldwide.

The 30-day trial offer of Norton Online Backup will come preinstalled and will provide five gigabytes (5GB) of secured online storage. Symantec has more than eight million customers and three million backups per day.

Norton Online Backup, available in 21 languages, helps ensure that users’ files and digital assets are kept safe and easily accessible by storing them in the cloud. Uploaded files can be accessed anytime, anywhere through a simple web site, and backups can be seamlessly controlled for up to five PCs through the same central account.

The company says that while nearly half of consumers report having lost files in the past, less than a third regularly back up – underscoring the need for a readily available and easy-to-use solution.

Users can remotely manage and restore lost files from any computer with a web browser that is connected to the internet. Backups are conducted automatically or on a user-defined schedule, while advanced data compression and a technology for ‘block-level’ incremental backups enable faster data transmission. And coming from the leader in consumer security, Norton Online Backup is supported by a high-level of encryption, both before the files leave the computer and during transmission to Symantec’s data centres.

The files remain encrypted in Symantec’s professionally managed, highly-secured data centre facilities.

A subscription is required for continuous use after the initial 30 days of free service.
