New Mozyâ„¢ 2xProtectâ„¢ Feature Delivers both Local and Internet-based Backup to Consumers and Businesses

Provides Ultimate Assurance Against Data Loss

Seattle – May 18, 2010 – / – MozyTM, the industry-leading online backup service from EMC Corporation (NYSE: EMC), today announced general availability of MozyHome® 2.0 and MozyPro® 2.0 on Windows. New enhancements include faster upload speeds and decreased bandwidth usage, new convenience and access features, and Mozy 2xProtectâ„¢ – a new feature which allows Mozy users to back up to a local external drive in addition to Mozy’s online data centers at no additional cost.

“Every computer is vulnerable to failure and data loss,” said Russ Stockdale, Chief Marketing Officer at Mozy. “Mozy 2.0 provides consumers and businesses a simple, automatic and secure way to back up all their information. With Mozy 2xProtect, customers can achieve significant levels of protection against data loss by combining the speed of local backup with the protection of the cloud over the Internet.”

In response to customer feedback, Mozy has made significant backup performance enhancements to the service. Mozy 2.0 customers can achieve up to 25 percent faster backups compared with previous versions. Mozy also redesigned the service’s interface to simplify set up and use. Although advanced configuration options still allow power users to maintain the level of functionality they require to protect their data, the new Mozy interface makes it easier for consumers and businesses to verify that files have been backed up and stored securely.
