Students, faculty and staff can get a 50% discount on IDrive Online Backup

Los Angeles, CA, March 14, 2012 –/– Students, teachers, staff and alumni with qualifying email addresses can get 50% off IDrive Online Backup at - now serving NYC and the UK.

Those with a .edu,, or email address can sign up here for a 150GB Personal or 500GB Family Pack and receive 50% off regular pricing.

“EVS, our new cloud storage platform, has some clear advantages over other online backup providers,” said Stephen Gold, Business Development Manager. “Besides being incredibly fast and secure, subscribers get unlimited file retention and universal protection for an unlimited number of Windows, Mac, iOS and Android devices with no license fees. Additionally, with our public APIs, developers can create custom applications.”

Schools and universities often maintain elaborate, specialized networks to connect their staff to the many terabytes of research data and other digital assets they’ve compiled. Having a remote backup of that data is often a strict policy due to federal regulations such as HIPAA and Sarbanes-Oxley and with EVS, IT departments can build applications that fit their institution’s specific needs using easy-to-implement APIs.

Faculty and staff can safeguard files with IDrive’s built-in private encryption key options, which allow subscribers to protect their data with a user-defined phrase, and with anytime/anywhere access to stored files via the web or mobile devices users are never left without their information at hand.

Some important features to note for students and teachers:

  • Access documents and files from any PC, Mac, iOS or Android device
  • Share files/folders with others, collaborate on presentations
  • Files are always encrypted and private key encryption is available for maximum security
  • Unlimited file retention and 30 past versions available for restore (versions are stored free)
  • Continuous Data Protection for real-time backup of schoolwork, never lose a paragraph
