SAN DIEGO -- Iomega Corporation, an EMC company (NYSE: EMC) and a global leader in consumer and small business data protection, today announced an industry first in integrating local and remote backup in a single product offering. Iomega external hard drives are now rolling out with a new downloadable software bundle that integrates EMC Retrospect® Express backup and recovery software with Mozy™ online backup service, vastly improving the convenience of securely storing, protecting and accessing important files.

Today’s announcement marks the first time that EMC-owned brands and market leaders Iomega, Retrospect and Mozy have united to offer consumers a single integrated hardware and software solution for nearline and online backup. EMC acquired Iomega in June, having previously purchased Dantz Development Corporation, makers of Retrospect backup software; and Berkeley Data Systems, the developers of MozyHome™ and MozyPro™ online backup software.

“The combination of Iomega external hard drives with Retrospect backup software integrated with Mozy online backup service means storing, protecting and accessing digital files is now easier than ever before,” said Jonathan Huberman, President of the Consumer and Small Business Products Group at EMC Corporation. “Computer users now have a seamless backup system for local backup of every file, as well as backup to the cloud for files that warrant another copy. This bundled solution provides the versatility of any time, anywhere access.
