Symform Upgrades 200GB Free Cloud Storage Offering

First and Only Global Peer-to-Peer Cloud Storage Network Gives 10GB Free With Download and Up to 200GB Free With Contribution to the Network

SEATTLE, WA--(Marketwire - Apr 16, 2012) - Symform, a revolutionary secure cloud storage and backup service, today announced an update to its market-leading 200GB free cloud storage offering. Starting today, all business users receive 10GB of free cloud storage immediately upon downloading the Symform software, and can receive up to 200GB of free cloud storage with contribution to the network. As the first and only global peer-to-peer network for cloud storage and backup, Symform is able to provide its customers an unrivaled amount of free cloud storage and the lowest flat fee pricing.

While many cloud providers are now offering two to 10GB free, Symform is the only service to offer up to 200GB. Plus, users can go beyond 200GB by inviting friends and colleagues to join the network. For each invited friend that joins the Symform Network, the user receives an additional 10GB of cloud storage. At any time, users can upgrade to a paid account to receive unlimited cloud storage for a low flat monthly fee, starting at just $3.50 per user.

"We continue to disrupt this market with revolutionary economics and by making cloud storage and backup easier, more secure and faster," said Praerit Garg, co-founder and president of Symform. "This is why our network is growing at a record pace, with users in 46 countries and billions of data fragments securely stored in the network."

Unlike traditional data center-based storage, Symform has no expensive, centralized infrastructure, but leverages excess local disk space nodes contributed by customers to its peer-to-peer global network. Users contribute an equal amount of local storage to the Symform Network in exchange for free cloud storage. Before any data leaves the source device, Symform divides the data, encrypts it with military-grade encryption and strong key management, further subdivides the encrypted data into fragments, adds redundancy, and then distributes the fragments across the global network.

Industry experts have validated that this approach is far more secure than traditional storage methods. Local contribution devices store encrypted fragments from other network members with no degradation or threat to their system or privacy.

To take advantage of the Symform free cloud storage offer, simply download the software and select folders for backing up to the cloud.
