Trend Micro offers cloud SafeSync for computers, mobile

updated 11:40 pm EST, Tue November 15, 2011

Works with Mac, Windows, Android, iOS

Trend Micro has launched its own cloud-based subscription backup and sync service called SafeSync, featuring browser-based management and compatibility with Macs, Windows PCs, Android and iOS devices. The service, which offers various levels of storage starting at 20GB up to 100GB, offers both automatic sync as well as drag-and-drop manual syncing. The new SafeSync now supports Mac OS X Lion with native 64-bit support for 10.5 and higher.

Trend Micro offers mobile apps to access the SafeSync service for Android, iPhone and iPad, and desktop or notebook users can access the service via web browser. Users can selectively sync folders on different computers or devices in order to avoid taking up too much space on any one device.

Users can right-click any folder to turn it into a SafeSync folder. The iPhone app works with iOS 3.1.3 or higher, and the Android app requires Android 2.1 or later. The service is available in the US immediately, and pricing starts at $40 per year, which includes 20GB. Existing users will be transitioned over to the new version. The price for 50GB for $90 per year, and 100GB is available for a yearly fee of $150. Multi-year agreements provide a small discount.
