AVG Partners with SOS Online Backup Parent Company, Infrascale

April 15, 2013

Infrascale has partnered with AVG Technologies N.V., provider of internet and mobile security, privacy, and optimization in a strategic agreement to produce additional security-related opportunities benefiting SMBs.

Read the official press release here. 

This partnership will allow the two firms to drive long-term development of AVG’s data protection services. SOS Online Backup has been a market leader in online backup and business continuity since its launch in 2001. AVG provides internet and mobile security, privacy and optimization to 146 million users.

“Today’s announcement represents the culmination of many months’ careful assessment of the market to find the right associate for the long-term development of data protection services,” said Mike Foreman, General Manager, SMB, AVG Technologies. “In selecting Infrascale we believe we have found a partner whose established industry profile and credentials within the small business channel are an ideal fit to help broaden our range of data protection and security services in this space.”

SOS Online Backup has excelled in the data protection market due to its commitment to security and scalability. This makes the alignment with AVG an ideal opportunity to introduce market-leading data security features and products to businesses around the globe.

“AVG is a globally respected brand with one of the largest active user bases of any security company in the market,” said Kenneth Shaw, CEO of Infrascale. “What makes the prospect of working together so exciting is how closely their focus on providing small business services that are simple-to-use, reliable and channel-friendly is aligned to our own.”

Look for further announcements from AVG and Infrascale in the coming months as we roll out new products and development plans for online data security products for SMBs and the IT channel.


Backup for free and prepare for Hurricane Sandy

October 29, 2012

The eastern seaboard of the United States is about to get hit with wind, rain, and possible power outages and flooding. We hope that if you’re in the path of Hurricane Sandy, you’ve evacuated safely and have reached higher ground.  For those of us who aren’t in the immediate path of Hurricane Sandy, this is a sobering reminder that disaster can strike at any time.

Protecting your home is the most important task – boarding up windows and tying down furniture is key to prevent as much damage as possible. What isn’t so obvious, however, is how to protect important digital files that you keep on your home and business computers (and external drives).

Disaster preparedness doesn’t have to cost a lot. Take advantage of our free 14 day trial to back up 50GB of your data and restore it to any PC or Mac. There is no commitment to purchase and no credit card required for download.

Restoring data is easy. If you need to download SOS Online Backup’s software again, it can be accessed on our downloads page. Click here to visit the downloads page.
