PRINCETON, N.J., Oct. 22, 2014 — / — SnapOne, Inc. the only company today offering families an all-in-one, cross-platform “life security” solution, today announced it’s shipping a new version of its flagship product, Snap One®, to help families secure and manage family members, data and devices, as well as share, socialize and manage content in the cloud, from virtually any device. By combining three products in one – Snap Secure®, Snap CloudView™ and Snap Play® – Snap One is the first to solve the problem of family and digital life safety, connectedness, cloud backup and media management in a single solution that would otherwise require families to purchase multiple pieces of software.

“We’ve spent a lot of time learning how families today are relying more and more on digital technology to help them feel connected and secure with their family members,” explains Jiren Parikh, president & CEO of SnapOne, Inc. “Our mission with Snap One is to offer a comprehensive cross-platform life security service regardless of the type of smart device you own or switch to in the future – akin to an iCloud for everyone and every device. Whether families need to keep track of where their kids are, make sure their teen is driving safely, protect their social media connections, secure devices from malware, or back up and manage all of their device photos, videos and music from our secure cloud, Snap One is the essential solution to help them do it all.”

In this month of National Cyber Security Awareness and on the cusp of the holiday season, SnapOne, Inc. understands that digital and personal safety is top-of-mind for everyone, especially for families. By upgrading Snap One with SocialSafe to protect personal and family social media accounts, CloudSafe with complete cross-platform sync and restore features on any device, updated anti-theft protection, and new Emergency Manager for alerting family members when you are in danger, families now have a way to tackle safety concerns head-on and protect family members from threats like social media malware, inappropriate language in public social media posts, online bullies, hackers, phone theft, and more.

Snap One also raised the bar on family support, now enabling users to add up to six members and unlimited devices including Androids, iPhones, Windows Phones and even Apple and Windows desktop computers, on a single subscription. The entire family can sync all of their devices to our family-shareable cloud, while keeping each member’s data completely private unless shared through FamilyRoom, a feature in CloudView that allows each member to securely share photos, videos, music and documents from their devices and the cloud with each other. Cloud storage options range from 250 GB to 1 TB.

“As more families look to their digital devices to stay connected, security continues to be a major concern and selling point,” explains Tim Bajarin, president of Creative Strategies. “Snap One makes it easy, fun, and secure for families to stay connected on multiple devices running on multiple platforms. No other provider offers a package geared towards families with the breadth of features that Snap One provides.”
