Gemalto Launches Data Storage, Backup and Sharing System

AMSTERDAM--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Gemalto, the world leader in digital security, today announced the launch of YuuWaa, an innovative solution for securely storing, backing up and sharing all types of multimedia data from one single interface. YuuWaa combines a USB flash drive with software and secured online services.

Designed for both consumers and professionals, YuuWaa enables users to conveniently drag and drop files between their local and online storage areas, and share these files with friends and colleagues. The solution offers two levels of storage capacity. "YuuWaa Go" is a 12GB option combining a 4GB USB flash drive with 8GB online capacity; and "YuuWaa Plus" has 24GB, including 8GB on the USB flash drive and 16GB online. Both versions are available immediately from retail partners online and in stores for ???19.99 (YuuWaa Go) and ???29.99 (YuuWaa Plus).

Many people find it a challenge to manage large quantities of photos, videos, music tracks and documents, and feel concerned about privacy when it comes to share personal, valuable files. Although they can centralize all of these files on a PC, they often lack an easy-to-use and cost effective way to carry, share and back up them. In addition, storing large personal files on an ordinary flash drive is convenient but lacks security.

YuuWaa meets this demand by combining high-capacity online and local storage, and complementing it with easy sharing, encrypted data transmission and automatic backup in just a few clicks. For example, with just a simple drag and drop YuuWaa users can share their data to friends with a secure link to a file so that they can conveniently access it even if it is too large to be emailed.

YuuWaa creates a trusted environment where safety and data confidentiality are protected. Users quickly move files between their online and USB drive spaces, and create their own seamless "Digital Data Universe".
