AVG Technologies Australia has moved its focus to data protection in the Cloud with the launch of its ‘ultra-secure’ online backup to AVG CloudCare.
Available now, AVG OLB provides resellers and service providers with a simple, cost effective way to offer small to medium business customers encrypted, military-grade backup using a pay-as-you-use model, according to a company statement.
It is AVGs first business service to focus on data protection rather than frontline security and marks a significant milestone in the company’s history.
According to a company statement, AVG CloudCare’s Cloud-based administration platform has enjoyed a rapid take-up among resellers worldwide since its launch twelve months ago.
“Growing numbers of resellers and other channel partners use AVG CloudCare on a daily basis to remotely deploy and manage security and IT services on behalf of their small and medium-sized business (SMB) customers,” a spokesperson for AVG said.
“OLB is fully integrated into the AVG CloudCare services platform with activation as easy as flipping a switch to ‘ON’.”
AVG channel sales director, Michael Dowling, said the desire to make the life of the small-to-medium business partners and their customers as easy as possible was the main driver in the development of AVG CloudCare.
“We see online backup and data protection as a natural extension for those partners already providing frontline security services to their customers.
“With this in mind we have fully integrated online backup into AVG CloudCare so that small to medium businesses can trust their IT providers to manage their data protection needs through the same single pane of glass.”
Data is encrypted while on the user’s computer, in transit and in storage, so that valuable data will not be compromised at any stage of the backup or restore process.
Datacentres located in UK and North America are ISO9001 and ISO 27001 certified and files are automatically scanned for malware by AVG AntiVirus, before compression and storage.
