Norton Online Backup on HP Desktops, Notebooks

Symantec has announced an agreement to distribute Norton Online Backup on HP consumer desktop and notebook PCs worldwide. Under this 30-day trial offer, Norton Online Backup will come preinstalled, and will provide 5GB of online storage.

As per the company, Norton Online Backup, available in 21 languages, helps ensure that users' most valuable files and digital assets are always kept safe and easily accessible by storing them in the cloud. Uploaded files can be accessed anytime, anywhere through a simple website, and backups can be seamlessly controlled for up to five PCs through the same central account.

Users can remotely manage and restore lost files from any computer with a web browser and connected to the Internet. Backups are conducted automatically or on a user-defined schedule, while advanced data compression and a technology for 'block-level' incremental backups enables faster data transmission.

"We're very pleased that HP continues to choose Norton, this time to bring our new web-based backup service to HP customers worldwide. Consumers are accumulating priceless digital assets - such as family photos, music and financial files - at a record pace. Consumers know they can trust Norton, the global security leader, to store and protect their data," said Janice Chaffin, President (Consumer Business Unit), Symantec.
HP consumer PCs currently ship with a 60-day version of Norton Internet Security.
