Not Just Another Online Backup Service; BackUPMAX Integrates Advanced Security Features for Official Launch

MEMPHIS, TN--(Marketwire - February 23, 2009) - The most advanced Online Backup Service to hit the market raises the bar for data security. BackUPMAX Secure Online Backup for Windows and Mac ( was released to the public on Monday, with an impressive and unusual feature set.

BackUPMAX backs up and restores files, but so do other services. BackUPMAX Personal Edition takes a step ahead by allowing users to erase sensitive data remotely from lost or stolen computers. Then it takes another few steps ahead by helping to recover stolen computers.

"BackUPMAX Personal Edition will actually snap pictures and movies of the thief using a computer's built-in camera. It can listen to sounds in the room. It can even discover its location," explained Ben Walker, Marketing Manager for BackUPMAX. "It sends all this information silently to your BackUPMAX account where you can view it."

Users can log into their BackUPMAX accounts on the web. From there they can order their lost computers to shred files using Military-grade DoD 5220.22-M protocol. Users can also locate their computers on a map using an innovative process that does not require a GPS or other special hardware or software on the lost computer.

Users can view video and snapshots, listen to room sounds, query the wireless network card and system information -- all of which can help locate the computer and prosecute the thief.

"Of course BackUPMAX has all the normal online backup features, plus some," Walker continued. "Web-based restore, cross-platform backups and restores, user-defined backup sets, configurable file retention policy, user-defined private keys, and very high security."

BackUPMAX Personal Edition is for laptops and personal computers. Subscriptions start at $9.95/month for 10GB. BackUPMAX Business Edition is for Servers, and starts at $89.95/month. Only the Personal Edition contains the Remote Security Suite.
