BOSTON, Feb. 23, 2012 –/– With tax preparation in full swing, Carbonite, Inc. (CARB), a leading provider of online backup solutions for consumers and small and medium sized businesses, offers people the peace of mind that their important tax documents are safe and secure.

More than half of Americans (51%) have experienced a computer crash where they lost all of their digital files, but 39% admit they have never backed up their computers, or haven’t done so in more than a year. As Americans begin to prepare their taxes, online backup solutions from Carbonite offer a simple solution for protecting important tax documents and other valuable files.

“Tax preparation is already a stressful time for most of us. As people focus on gathering their tax forms and receipts, the last thing they should have to think about is protecting their important data, too,” said Tom Murray, Senior Vice President of Marketing for Carbonite. “Carbonite’s service is ‘set it and forget it.’ It automatically backs up the files on your computer so you can invest your time tracking down tax deductions, instead of worrying about whether or not your files are protected.”

In addition to providing automatic and secure backup protection, Carbonite solutions also enable consumers and small businesses to have “anytime, anywhere” access to their backed up data – so they can access their tax documents, financial records or other files from any internet-connected device no matter where their tax preparation takes place.
