Norman Announces Cross-Platform Online Backup Service for Consumer PCs and Macs

FAIRFAX, Va., Dec. 5, 2011 –/– Norman today announced the global availability of Online Backup for consumer personal computers, delivering industry-leading safe and affordable storage with flexible access from PC and Mac and mobile platforms including Android and Apple iOS devices.

A free introductory version of Norman Online Backup is immediately available with purchase of Norman Security Suite and Norman Security Suite Pro. Norman Online Backup is also sold separately in 20GB, 100GB and unlimited storage versions. Existing Norman security customers are offered a 60-day free trial on the unlimited plan. To purchase Norman Online Backup, please go to

Norman research finds that one-third of computer users admit to losing files and more than one-in-five users never backup, even though the value of the data on a computer – irreplaceable family photos, music and personal data – exceeds the value of the PC itself. Secure online backup solutions are increasingly popular because hardware backup appliances are vulnerable to breakdown and failure – just like the computer hardware itself.

“With Norman Online Backup consumers can easily and cost-effectively access files whenever and wherever they are needed,” said Audun Lodemel, vice president, Marketing. “Work files, school files or photos backed up on the home Macintosh, for example, can be effortlessly accessed on the work or school PC, or easily displayed on the Android smart phone or iOS mobile device. Videos and music kept on one device can be made instantly available on another device.”

Norman Online Backup highlights include:

  • For Microsoft Windows and Mac OS X
  • Mobile access to files, including Android, iPhone, iPad and iPod Touch
  • File sharing with just one click
  • Multiple computers may share storage space
  • Fast and easy set up with automatic or scheduled backup
  • Download all files as a zip file for effortless storage
  • Continuous backup with every change to a file
  • Recover deleted files for up to 30 days
  • Archive files online to free up space on the hard drive

“Many consumers worry about losing valuable computer data but do nothing about it,” Lodemel said. “With Norman Online Backup, saving precious data has never been easier or more affordable. Especially during this holiday season, act now to protect your valuable digital data.”
