03.09.2009 -( - (Memphis, TN) BackUPMAX, a leading Online Backup service designed with an impressive and unusual feature set, today announced the efforts it is taking to help the public prepare for an active 2009 Hurricane season.

Jeff McDonald, BackUPMAX CTO, released a statement today urging computer users at risk of experiencing the effects of strong storms this season to prepare for possible hardware damage in advance.

“We hope to encourage computer users to take advantage of the 2 gigabytes of free backup space we offer. Back up your personal files now, before any risk. In the event of a disaster, you know those items can be easily recovered and you can worry about more important things. We are also extending our services to businesses who sign up for a free trial of our Business Edition. If your area is affected, we will gladly extend the trial version, free of charge, for as long as it is necessary.”

Offsite Backup has proven to be a far more prudent plan for residents in areas susceptible to natural disasters than housing data onsite. With the amount of data that’s being uploaded to hard drives daily, not performing proper backups can be a critical error they may result in a permanent loss of vital records. According to recent government statistics, more than 50% of companies that are victim to critical data loss never recover and end up going out of business.

A automatic remote backup solution is the only way to ensure backups are done properly and that they are recoverable. The data is transmitted to an offsite data vault where restorations can take place at the file level, or can be used to perform a bare metal restore to a different machine or location if needed.

BackUPMAX Remote Backup Service officially launched to the public in March 2009. Since then, BackUPMAX has been well received by consumers, bloggers, and the press, showing a steady increase in sales. BackUPMAX Personal Edition was developed with the mobile laptop user in mind, offering a remote security feature with the ability to track down a computer should it be lost or stolen, and also remotely erase sensitive data.

BackUPMAX uses a military grade 448-bit encryption technology before sending users compresses files over the internet to two redundant secure offsite data centers using an additional Secure Socket Layer (SSL) of encryption protection. This is the highest level of encryption and validation technology available.

BackUPMAX offers a personal edition for Mac and Windows, as well as a business addition currently only available for Windows. For more information and pricing, please visit the company’s website
