As 2011 draws to a close, we pause to take a moment to review some of the biggest Mozy news of 2011. Here are the things we’re the most excited about:
With the Mozy mobile apps, you now have access to your data on the go. Whether you’re on an iOS or an Android device, your backed up files (and the files in your Stash) are only a few taps away. The most recent update allows users to utilize personal key encryption for added protection.
Both MozyHome and MozyPro customers can now utilize the mobile app, and MozyPro admins have complete control over which users can access their device on their mobile device.
Participants in this year’s private beta for Mozy Stash have been able to get hands-on experience with Mozy’s latest innovation in data backup and storage. Stash, Mozy’s file syncing feature, allows users to sync files between multiple computers or devices quickly and easily.
Stash extends the availability of your files even more – even if a file isn’t being backed up on your computer you can access via Stash.

In late 2011, Mozy announced the Mozy Data Shuttle, along with major enhancements to the MozyPro service, allowing for much better server performance.
Customers using the Data Shuttle are able to perform their initial backup to a Mozy provided hard drive, which is then overnighted back to Mozy, greatly reducing the amount of time needed to complete the first backup. With the Data Shuttle, the days (and weeks) of waiting for your first backup to complete are history.

As we move into 2012 we look forward to continuing the evolution of the Mozy experience that customers have valued for years. We’ll be broadening the beta—and ultimately releasing—the Stash sync functionality. This will be a key cornerstone on which we plan to build additional features in 2012. In addition, we plan to add additional enhancements to MozyPro to make it easier to deploy and operate for our larger customers while at the same time adding additional enhancements for the mid-size and smaller businesses. Our plans are to make it a more complete solution for the full range of customer backup needs while expanding how people access and use the data that they are mirroring in the cloud. We look forward to an exciting year ahead of bringing additional value to our customers.
