Saudi mobile telco Aljawal has deployed a customer data backup and restore service from MobiComp.

The MobileKeeper system helps protect personal data should a mobile be damaged, lost or stolen and will be supplied to all Aljawal’s 13.5 million customers. Using an automatic system, MobileKeeper protects any kind of data held on a mobile device from basic content such as contacts, texts, photos and ring tones to more complex applications such as Microsoft Word and Excel.

Aljawal, the mobile arm of Saudi Telecom Company (STC), said providing the service would help encourage the adoption of advanced mobile services.

“By offering our customers a comprehensive backup and restore product we are meeting a genuine need,” Aljawal marketing general manager Jameel Al Molhem said. “It not only gives users confidence to start using more advanced mobile data services, but it is also offering a solution that is network-based, which is critical to any operator.”
