BANGALORE: Symantec Corp. has unveiled a new version of Norton Online Backup which now supports both Windows and Mac on up to five computers, conveniently linked together through the same central account.  The updated version gives consumers the ability to share documents with others, to transfer files between any of their computers, and to retrieve backed up files at anytime from any Web connection, including up to 90 days of file revisions, says a press release. 

“Norton is a brand that consumers trust to keep them secure and protected.  Now consumers can turn to Norton to back up their priceless photos and music collections,” said David Hall, regional consumer product marketing manager, Symantec, Asia Pacific. “With the combination of our brand, worldwide reach, and these latest technical improvements, we intend to bring online backup to consumers in a major way.”

Norton Online Backup simplifies sharing large files with friends and colleagues, or transferring data between household computers, as added.  Through just their Web browser, users can select and share any of the files they have backed up by generating unique download links that can be emailed to any address.  Especially useful after a new computer purchase, enhanced file migration assists users with the easy transfer of files between household computers.  Now, files are easily transferred remotely among any of the computers in the same Norton Online Backup account.

In addition, Norton has partnered with 5 of the top 6 OEMs worldwide to provide online backup services.  “What makes Norton Online Backup stand out from other online backup providers is its ease of use.  When you log into your account, backing up and restoring is simple, intuitive, and takes just a few clicks,” said Karla Aycock, Norton Online Backup customer.  “More importantly, I know I’m leaving my irreplaceable files in the hands of a brand that I trust.”
