”It has been fun, exciting and challenging to develop Surftown and now see it as part of a strong platform. It goes without saying that we are sad to have to say goodbye to the many talented colleagues, but we also know that the new owner can provide a stronger platform for the continued development of the business. We are looking forward to focus 100 percent on our cloud-to-cloud backup company Keepit.com”, both of them say.
