ATandT Offers Tech Support 360 Backup and Go Mobile App
The Backup and Go app allows users to share and collaborate on files with colleagues and clients.Small to midsize business owners can now access backed up PC data from their iPhone with a mobile application announced by wireless network operator AT&T. The company's Tech Support 360 Backup and Go Mobile App gives small business customers the ability to access their computer files backed up with AT&T's Backup and Go service from virtually anywhere. The app uses an enhanced user interface that is designed to integrate seamlessly with smartphones, and is now available as a free download from the App Store on iPhones or at the iTunes App store. Backup and Go is available nationwide to any small business with a high speed Internet connection. All data accessed and backed up is stored in secure offsite data centers. In addition, the service includes encryption for stored files and data replication for enhanced reliability. Access to the Backup and Go Mobile app requires a login to an AT&T Tech Support 360 Backup and Go account and can only be used by Backup and Go subscribers.
The mobile app can display 52 of the most common file types, including documents, spreadsheets, presentations, and photos. Previously, smartphones were limited to browser-based access to the Backup and Go service. In addition to accessing backed-up data, the Backup and Go app also allows users to share and collaborate on files with colleagues and clients. Users can also search for files on backed-up computers, print, email, or fax directly from a smartphone, and upload files to a computer for online sharing and editing.
