Empowering users to literally backup anything anywhere, anyway they like, and addressing the main aspects of data protection – data backup, offsite storage, archiving and data recovery – Genie Backup Manager Pro 7.0 brings a new level of scalability, dependability and optimized performance to the backup industry.
Among the many new features that version 7.0 has been imbued with is the ability to backup files over the internet to Genie-Soft’s backup servers. The new Online Backup service supports 128- bit Secure Socket Layer (SSL) certified by the leading global provider of SSL certificates Thawte. It is seamlessly integrated within Genie Backup Manager’s backup and restore wizards, and is as easy as backing up to a local or LAN-connected hard drive.
“The single hardest challenge any software maker faces is making the interface as easy-to-use as possible while maintaining a level of flexibility and customizable features to make it appealing to all user sectors. Genie Backup Manager has always been the standard for user-friendliness coupled with a mountain of accessible features. And the new version emphasizes that.” Said Dr. Taleb Hammad, Executive Vice President at Genie-Soft
“Integrating our online backup solution within the software took the backup industry to a newer level of user-empowerment through combining everything customers need to safeguard their data within a single software that is still ridiculously easy to use. Now, Genie Backup Manager Pro can backup to virtually any storage media imaginable.”
Using the new online backup feature, users need only an internet connection, their online backup account credentials and a copy of Genie Backup Manager, which can be downloaded anytime from the Genie-Soft website, in order to restore their backed up data from anywhere in the world. Even without Genie Backup Manager, users can still have access to download their files and folders by pointing their browsers to the Genie Online Backup website.
“Now all Genie-soft customers can enjoy having access to their data on the go; no matter where you are, if you’re getting ready for a meeting, you can access, modify and download your presentations, excel sheets and business plans on the fly.”
The new version employs 64-bit nonproprietary ZIP format compression, breaking the 4GB compressed file size boundary that was enforced in previous versions. It also enables users to access their data using any ZIP format compatible decompressor, making recovering data from corrupt backups possible and easy to do.
An enhanced optical storage media writing engine makes for more reliable CD/DVD backups, and adds support for the new Dual-Layer DVDs technology, while the new Logs Manager makes Genie Backup Manager’s logs and reports more accessible, easier to manage, and a lot more informative.
“Giving customers the flexibility of managing all these options inside GBM will contribute to the success and ease of achieving goals and ensuring business continuity, whether talking on the corporate level, small and medium businesses or users working from the comfort of their homes”.
Genie Backup Manager is installed on over half a million machines around the world, being operated by both novice and advanced computer users.
