HERNDON, Va. (3/20/13)--DigitalMailer Inc. is recognizing World Backup Day March 31 by offering special discounts this month to users of its My Virtual StrongBox online storage service.
World Backup Day raises awareness of the need to back up digital content. Consumers should save their files regularly--once a year is not enough, according to the World Backup Day website. Working with an online storage provider is "possibly the most reliable way to keep your files safe," the Day site suggests.
Through its Virtual StrongBox product, DigitalMailer seeks to position financial institutions to fill this role.
"Credit unions and banks already serve as gatekeepers of many important financial documents, and they subscribe to high security and authentication practices," said Ron Daly, DigitalMailer's President/CEO. "Also, using general cloud storage providers can carry risk. They provide no ownership rights to store your documents and give you no control over where your materials are stored in the cloud."
Partner financial institutions that offer My Virtual StrongBox can get discounts for upgrading storage space. Institutions can then pass the savings on to their users of the service.
My Virtual StrongBox, a software-as-a-service product, is designed to help consumers safeguard important documents such as wills, deeds, insurance papers, family photographs and other valuable items by loading them into protected online document libraries.
