CUPERTINO, Calif. -- Symantec Corp. (NASDAQ: SYMC), makers of Norton security software, today 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. It is the first Web-based consumer offering delivered by Norton.
Norton Online Backup makes it simple for people around the world to backup their digital photographs, critical financial documents, music collections and archived e-mail -- all from an easy-to-use Website. Up to five household computers can be safely 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."
