Back Up and Share Your Holiday Memories
Helsinki, Finland – August 31, 2010: Whether it’s the trip of a lifetime, a fun holiday spent with friends or the children’s first visit to the beach, holiday photos and videos bring back precious memories for years to come. With F-Secure Online Backup™ all the photos and videos collected on your computer are backed up in a secure location on the Internet, also making it easier than ever to share your memories with family and friends.
F-Secure Online Backup automatically backs up all the other digital content on your computer, so you never need to worry about accidentally deleting files or losing valuable content through computer failure or property damage. A recent F-Secure survey* shows that many people are still relying on their computer hard drives to back up their data (72.1% in Germany, 60.3% in Sweden, 37.1% in the UK). External hard drives are the second most popular backup method (43.3% in Germany, 43.2% in Sweden, 28.7% in the UK). Both storage methods are prone to mechanical failure and accidents.
With F-Secure Online Backup your backed-up files can be easily accessed anywhere over the Internet. The new sharing feature makes it effortless to invite your family and friends to enjoy your photos, videos or other files without resorting to time-consuming e-mail attachments.
In addition to the sharing feature, the new version of F-Secure Online Backup includes modified default settings to enable faster backup, as well as an enhanced web interface for ease of use. There is no limit on the amount of data you can back up from your computer – and no need to pay more as your online backup needs increase. As always, existing F-Secure Online Backup customers will receive the updated version automatically in the coming weeks.
The new version of F-Secure Online Backup is now available at http://www.f-secure.com/en_EMEA/estore/. F-Secure is also offering a version with 2GB of storage as a free 90-day trial from http://www.f-secure.com/en_EMEA/downloads/trial-versions/home-office/.

F-Secure’s Operator partners also benefit from the new version of Online Backup. In addition to offering the sharing feature to their customers, Operators can now set a size limit on their storage offering and bundle a low-cost version of the Online Backup Service for Consumers with their broadband connection.
F-Secure Online Backup, version 2.2, is for the following operating systems:
Microsoft Windows XP, Windows Vista and Windows 7, Mac OS 10.4 / 10.5 / 10.6
*The survey was commissioned by F-Secure and conducted by GfK in April 2010, with 1505 respondents in the UK, 1500 in Sweden and 1509 in Germany.
