Dallas (PRESS RELEASE – November 23, 2010) – Small business owners can now conveniently access their backed up PC data from their iPhone with a new mobile application announced today by AT&T. The company’s AT&T Tech Support 360 Backup and Go Mobile App gives small business customers the ability to access their computer files backed up with AT&T’s Backup and Go service from virtually anywhere.
The full-featured app uses an enhanced user interface that integrates seamlessly with smartphones. The new mobile app can display 52 of the most common file types, including documents, spreadsheets, presentations, and photos. Previously, smartphones were limited to browser-based access to the Backup and Go service.
“Our new mobile app extends our popular AT&T Tech Support 360 Backup and Go service with easy mobile access for iPhone users,” said Ebrahim Keshavarz, vice president of AT&T Small Business Product Management. “Our Backup and Go service provides business-level data back-up, combined with native mobile app access, enabling customers to continue to run their business while away from the office.”
In addition to accessing backed-up data, the Backup and Go app also allows users to share and collaborate on files with colleagues and clients. Users may also quickly search for files on backed-up computers, print, email, or fax directly from a smartphone, and upload files to a computer for online sharing and editing.
The app is now available as a free download from the App Store on iPhones or at the iTunes App store.
Access to the Backup and Go Mobile app requires a login to an AT&T Tech Support 360 Backup and Go account and can only be used by Backup and Go subscribers.
Backup and Go is available nationwide to any small business with a high speed Internet connection. All data accessed and backed up is stored in secure offsite data centers. In addition, the service includes encryption for stored files and data replication for enhanced reliability.
