Trend Micro has announced its Trend Micro SafeSync for Business, which is designed to allow companies of any size to securely save, manage and access their digital files from anywhere at any time and enable file sharing between co-workers and clients.

SafeSync for Business uses cloud technology to allow users to access and share all their data in a protected and safe environment across multiple computers and mobile devices via synchronisation technology.

The programme also maintains secure up-to-date copies of shared files in the cloud, which are designed to be accessed from any web-enabled device or in case of hardware failure.

SafeSync is designed to eliminate the need to manually move files between personal computing devices and PCs. 

Trend Micro conducted a recent survey that showed that just 12% of small businesses are not using smartphones for business use, while 43% of businesses have one or more employees accessing their IT systems via a tablet device.

"We know that the majority of small business owners are juggling multiple devices and don't have a server to help backup and protect their sensitive data," said Dan Conlon, Engineering director and developer at Trend Micro. "We're excited to be able to offer an affordable and easy-to-use solution to protect their files whether they're in the office, at home or on the road that won't slow them down."

SafeSync users will be given continuous updates and improvements and are designed to be protected from data loss because of the cloud-based nature of the programme and the back-ups kept in the cloud.

The system can be used to share files internally within a company, or between different companies with shared folders.

There are no file size limits or folder permissions for SafeSync and a company only needs to purchase one license for multiple users. The programme also allows video and music streaming to compatible hand-held devices.

SafeSync has centralized management for the administrator, instant secure link sharing with any third party, deleted file recovery with unlimited versioning and is supported on Windows and Mac, iPhone, iPad and Android devices and any web enabled device.

"Trend Micro's SafeSync [for Business] allows our business to be more diverse and dynamic, sharing and protecting data," said Robert Box of RadioWorks. "We can now enhance the business by getting full use of new generation computing, safe in the knowledge that there will never be that sinking feeling you associate with the words ‘I've lost my iPad.'"
