Data Deposit Box's Continuous Online Backup Now Available for Macs

July 21, 2009- TORONTO--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Mac users can breathe a sigh of relief. Data Deposit Box announced today that its highly rated backup and storage service is now available for Mac computers. Previously only computers using Windows were able to continuously and automatically backup their files with Data Deposit Box. However, with this new offering, businesses that operate with Mac computers will be able to secure their important data and access it from anywhere.

The new service will operate similarly to the Windows service in several ways. As always, users will benefit from Data Deposit Box’s patented continuous backup, although for Mac computers, the client is a background daemon that always runs even when no one is logged in. It also backs up files as they change, with options to control various settings, such as CPU usage, intervals between backups and more.

“Although Macs are lauded for their protection against viruses and other issues that sometimes frustrate Windows users, they’re still vulnerable to data loss because that protection doesn’t guarantee full immunity,” said Jamie Brenzel, CEO of Data Deposit Box. “And of course, no matter what system your business uses, data loss from power surges, human error or natural disasters are bound to happen. Obviously with the popularity of Mac computers, this new client fills a need for comprehensive backup.”

Although Mac customers will enjoy the same safeguard against data loss as Windows users, there are a couple of differences. The Mac client does not yet offer a cleanup utility; however, that is planned for a later version. Also, the restoration feature is only available via the “My Data” Web site.

The addition of a Mac client adds to the already feature-rich product that has been highly rated. The provider was recently chosen as one of CRN’s 25 “Coolest of the Coolest” Emerging Vendors, and in May, PCMag.com gave Data Deposit Box four stars in its comprehensive review.

Data Deposit Box is a secure and comprehensive online data storage and backup service that enables users to affordably and simply backup, restore, and share information online for $2 per GB per month. Once the software is installed, it can be customized to backup as many or as few files as desired. Data Deposit Box then runs invisibly in the background and engages when the computer is connected to the Internet, continuously monitoring selected folders. Data Deposit Box is automatic – when a change is detected, it is immediately extracted, compressed, encrypted and then securely transferred to a remote server. After creating a backup with Data Deposit Box, customers investing in this service can securely access files remotely from any web browser.
