Powered by IBM, Vaulten Launches Secure Automatic Online Backup Solution for UK/EU SMBs

LONDON, July 23/PRNewswire/ -- In the current economic climate, every small to medium business (SMB) is
looking for ways to reduce IT costs without compromising business security.
Backing up business crucial data securely to an offsite location has become
more of a mandatory compliance need rather than a nice-to-have feature.
Restoring data as and when required in case of any unforeseen disaster is
crucial for business continuity.

Typical backup solutions on the market today are based on
smaller, lesser known providers, or very high-end costlier disaster recovery
solutions ideally suitable for companies with big budgets e.g. Corporates &
Banks. Users can't always be sure of the future of smaller players or may not
be willing to invest heavily in infrastructure costs to implement full-scale

Vaulten, powered by IBM, specifically address these gaps in
the market by providing a secure online automatic backup service to end-users
on a SaaS based model.

On its launch in UK and EU, Mac Karlekar, Managing Director at
Vaulten says "We are proud to have IBM, the world's leading IT company, at
all fronts; the software, hardware and services, with which we are now able
to provide Enterprise Level Security to SMBs based on proven world-class IBM
technologies (IBM Tivoli, CDP and IBM managed Data Centres). We feel, Vaulten
will help SMBs to reduce considerable IT management costs but still provide
peace of mind that their data is secure and encrypted, ready to be restored
on-demand anytime and anywhere."

Since the solution itself is powered by IBM, trust factor,
security and reliability comes by default with the IBM brand name. Even in
the current economic climate, you can count on IBM to be a market leader next
year, and maybe 10-20 years from now.

Vaulten Online Backup offers the same technology and level of
security that is normally implemented by Banks and comes with user-friendly
interface at affordable pricing options.

Key Differentiators of Vaulten:

1. Peace of mind - Secure as IBM: Powered by IBM Technology
(Blade servers, CDP, Tivoli), your files are stored encrypted that can be
only accessed with your private credentials.

2. Pay-As-You Go Model: Every user has different need of
secure storage requirement. Keeping this basic principle in mind, our
packages allow users to pay only for what they need.

3. User friendly interface: We have kept the interface as
simple as possible for end-users with near zero intervention once the setup
is complete.

4. IBM Data Disaster Recovery Protection: Managed in highly
secure redundant IBM data centres, your data is as secure as any bank's data
which uses IBM infrastructure for disaster recovery.

data centres.

10. No Infrastructure Complexity: As long as you have a
internet connection, you do not need to invest in any other costlier

We do not consider ourselves to compete with other online
storage providers who provide free or cheap storage. Our solution is targeted
ideally at SMB sector who may not necessary want to invest in costly
infrastructure but ideally will still like the same level of security and
encryption as used by banks to transmit highly confidential information. We
believe, Vaulten has harnessed the power of IBM to have a very unique
advantage over other providers.

offer, starting at a minimal GBP5.99 for 3GB storage per month running up to
terabytes, Vaulten also offers customised solutions specific to client needs.
