CUPERTINO, Calif., /PRNewswire/ -- Trend Micro Inc. recently announced the first standalone product resulting from its acquisition of humyo, a leading online storage and data synchronization company.

Trend Micro SafeSync is an easy-to-use, yet technically powerful solution that offers a secure personal cloud to individual consumers. It features automatic online backup and data synchronization of files to a secure online storage center across multiple computers and Internet-connected devices. This results in superior organization of data and removes the manual effort of moving files from one PC to another, which is not only time-consuming but subject to data loss.

Using a Web browser, consumers can care for, access and share important files, anytime and anywhere. Optionally, customers can download a client software, which synchronizes files across all their computers and enables access to Trend Micro SafeSync through a virtual hard drive on their PC -- even when offline.

Regarded already as one of Europe's leading online backup solutions under the humyo name, Trend Micro SafeSync expands the company's security promise to consumers, by giving them secure online backup, recovery and continuous access. Analyst firm IDC has estimated that the Internet storage backup market will achieve an annual growth rate of over 33% from 2009 to 2011.

"Backup just got better.  Now you can sync your digital life in real time--simply and easily. Your pictures and files are immediately secured, and accessible from any device at your fingertips, any time," said Carol Carpenter, general manager, consumer and small business, Trend Micro. "Traditional online backup is a great insurance plan for your data, but you don't need to wait for a disaster in order to use it, because Trend Micro SafeSync redefines your digital life by automatically syncing your data to the Internet cloud with unparalleled protection."

Trend Micro began offering humyo services, with 10 GB secure online backup and sync and sharing features, on September 08 with its introduction of Trend Micro™ Titanium™ Maximum Security ($59.95 for 1 PC, $79.95 for 3 PCs) – which also includes antivirus, antispyware, spam blocking, Web threat protection, prevention of malicious downloads and detection and prevention of malicious links in emails or IMs, customizable parental controls, data theft prevention, and more.
