New Mozyâ„¢ 2xProtectâ„¢ Feature Delivers both Local and Internet-based Backup to Consumers and Businesses
Provides Ultimate Assurance Against Data Loss
Seattle â€“ May 18, 2010 â€“ /BackupReview.info/ – MozyTM, the industry-leading online backup service from EMC Corporation (NYSE: EMC), today announced general availability of MozyHomeÂ® 2.0 and MozyProÂ® 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 Mozyâ€™s online data centers at no additional cost.
â€œEvery computer is vulnerable to failure and data loss,â€ said Russ Stockdale, Chief Marketing Officer at Mozy. â€œMozy 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.â€
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 serviceâ€™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.
Mozy 2xProtect provides this capability by automatically backing up files to an external drive in addition to a Mozy data center. The result is a sound backup solution that involves having both a local and an offsite copy of oneâ€™s personal or business information.
Since its launch in 2005, Mozy has become the most trusted online backup service in the world, serving more than one million users and 50,000 business customers. Partnerships include Cox Business, Comcast, McAfee, ChinaTelecom and Clearlybusiness, a wholly owned subsidiary of Barclays Bank.

MozyPro provides businesses with a web-based administrative console to manage backups, server support and phone support. Services start as low as $4.95 per month.
