Stral Announces Premium Online Backup Option For Small Businesses

Hartford, Conn. (PRESS RELEASE -February 18, 2009) – Today, Stral LLC launches Vaulten – a premium online backup option for small businesses and consumers. Vaulten Online Backup is powered and secured by IBM technologies.

Once installed, Vaulten automatically backs important files to highly secure and redundant IBM-managed data centers. Vaulten incorporates next-generation continuous data protection (CDP) technology, which ensures the software keeps working behind-the-scenes and automatically backs any new or modified files without user interruption.

The IBM power not only gives Vaulten users world-class protection, but also the trust factor that has been missing in the industry, said Stral CEO Anil Mathews. Now users can rest assured that their data is safe at the world’s most secure data centers.

“Worldwide, there are millions of Internet-connected computers without any backup processes in place. And one of the main reasons for this is that people don’t trust their data with regular online backup companies. We’re focused on solving this problem,” said Mathews.

Vaulten Online Backup consists of a simple, three-step process, Mathews said.

“Users can secure their digital valuables in three steps: download, install and activate,” Mathews said. “The software intelligently selects the most important files on a computer that need to be secured. Advanced options also allow users to select any file, folder or section of their computer that they wish to be backed.”

Once activated, Vaulten silently starts backing up files to IBM servers at IBM-managed data centers. The transmission and storage is fully encrypted using bank-grade encryption systems. Vaulten’s cutting-edge technology also incorporates on-demand recovery. In the event of a need to recover partial or complete data, users can select only the files they need to backup with ease. The in-built file versioning ensures multiple versions of the same files are stored, so if a user wants to restore an older version of the same file, this can occur in just a few clicks.

Users can try Vaulten Online Backup free for 30 days by downloading it from There is no credit card or registration required for this. Vaulten currently supports Windows XP and Windows Vista operating systems.

Vaulten subscription rates start at just $9.95 (USD) per month. Users can securely buy Vaulten subscriptions online using credit or debit cards, or via PayPal. For more information, please visit
