Nairobi, Kenya – May 29, 2013 — / — Kenyan IT company, East African Data Handlers, has launched a new application that automatically relays data from a user’s computer to the firm’s data centre for backup, covering the whole of Africa. The software dubbed ‘DataHandler’, provides a continuous backup of files whenever the computer is connected to the Internet.

The new invention is based on innovations through a model referred as Java virtual machine that relays the information retrieved to the server. This is an automated backup application that will offer automated data backup from any computer automatically to the firm’s data centre and will oversee recovery solutions for a wide range of software for almost any data loss situation ranging from accidental formats to virus attacks to software malfunctions and computer theft.

“Data security has increasingly become a major challenge both to individuals and cooperate bodies where recovering lost files has been the biggest challenge. The new invention seeks to fix the situation”, said George Njoroge, Managing Director at East African Data Handlers. “Most major operating systems are supported including Windows, Macintosh, UNIX, Linux, and Novell. Additional data recovery solutions include recovery from CD-Rom’s, digital media recovery (such as digital pictures or music files), and e-mail recovery. We also provide data protection, data backup, and data eraser software.”

“We lowered our fee to make the service affordable to many people and we don’t intend to increase the cost any time soon,” added Mr Njoroge. “We will store and manage every KB of data in this continent. Apart from automated data banking services, the company is also offering cloud servers and managed co-location application hosting service.”

DataHandler provides a continuous back-up of files whenever the computer is connected to the Internet. The application comes at an annual fee of KES 1,500 with no set-up cost.

The company said it is targeting to provide data banking services to every government, business, home and individuals across Africa.

Last year, the East African Data Handlers launched a data recovery service primarily focusing on mobile phone subscribers where lost data including call logs and text messages could be retrieved.
