Carbonite Expands Online Backup Service

BOSTON -- Carbonite Inc., the leading provider of online backup services for consumers and small businesses, today announces the addition of remote file access to its award-winning online backup service. Beginning March 16, 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 adds a layer of convenience to the Carbonite Online Backup service, as subscribers will be able to access their backed up data anytime, anywhere. Users simply log on to and go to the remote access tab on the navigation bar, where they can securely download individual files – no plugins or other software are needed.

“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,” said David Friend, co-founder and CEO of Carbonite. “We continue to add features that directly address what consumers want and need. Remote access is one of several enhancements we’ve made recently, and we have more exciting product developments coming in the near future.”
