Security vendor Symantec launched its software-as-a-service (SaaS) platform this week with a beta version of its first deliverable, a data-backup and -recovery offering.

The Symantec Protection Network-Online Backup Service gives companies, particularly small and midsize firms, browser-based business data backup and recovery. In the event of a system outage or even a catastrophic disaster, users of the subscription-based Symantec service will be able to access files quickly and easily.Security vendors like Symantec have had success offering security as a service, in particular with services such as antivirus and spam detection.

Symantec is pitching the new backup service to smaller companies by touting it as cost-effective and accessible. Companies can manage all aspects of the service online--from the initial sign-up, to use-based pricing, to setup and configuration. The service also can be purchased through Symantec channel partners such as Ingram Micro.
