TeamViewer® Launches Backup Solution for Businesses

TeamViewer, one of the world’s most popular providers of remote control and online meeting software, today announced an extension to its product portfolio: airbackup, a cloud-based backup solution, supports organizations with safeguarding their business data without the use of an on-premise backup infrastructure. airbackup excels at safety and ease of use while enabling effortless backup automation. airbackup can be downloaded at www.airbackup.com . During the trial period airbackup is free of charge.

airbackup comes with maximum security: The 256 bit AES encryption works with a private key users generate during the set-up process to ensure that the data is protected from unauthorized access at any time. All data is locally encrypted before the data transfer so that no one, not even the airbackup support professionals, can access it.

The superior BackupBoost™ technology supplies maximum compression. Prior to each backup, airbackup compresses the data to a minimum of its original size and identifies duplicate data blocks, which do not have to be backed up. Within milliseconds, airbackup recognizes the data that has been modified since the last backup so that only the altered data blocks will be transferred. All of this provides for a faster transfer to the external data center.

After downloading the airbackup Client, users set up their backup routine and determine the reports they want to receive. By the help of the complementary web based airbackup Manager, organizations can centrally control their backed up devices and group them according to their needs. As a cloud-based solution, airbackup provides users with the comfort of a dependable restore from anywhere at any time. Furthermore, airbackup mitigates the risk of losing data from local breakdowns or natural catastrophes.

“We felt that many data backup solutions in market left quite a number of questions unanswered which is why we designed airbackup”, comments Holger Felgner, General Manager at TeamViewer. “airbackup supports organizations in setting up a viable business continuity and disaster recovery strategy, while relieving their IT budgets considerably. Apart from our BackupBoost™ technology airbackup users can benefit from the typical cloud advantages while performing targeted backups which do not interfere with their daily operations.”
