TeamViewer® Launches Backup Solution for Businesses

TeamViewer, one of the world’s most popular providers of remote control and online meeting software, today announced an extension to its product portfolio: airbackup, a cloud-based backup solution, supports organizations with safeguarding their business data without the use of an on-premise backup infrastructure. airbackup excels at safety and ease of use while enabling effortless backup automation. airbackup can be downloaded at www.airbackup.com . During the trial period airbackup is free of charge.

airbackup comes with maximum security: The 256 bit AES encryption works with a private key users generate during the set-up process to ensure that the data is protected from unauthorized access at any time. All data is locally encrypted before the data transfer so that no one, not even the airbackup support professionals, can access it.

The superior BackupBoost™ technology supplies maximum compression. Prior to each backup, airbackup compresses the data to a minimum of its original size and identifies duplicate data blocks, which do not have to be backed up. Within milliseconds, airbackup recognizes the data that has been modified since the last backup so that only the altered data blocks will be transferred. All of this provides for a faster transfer to the external data center.

After downloading the airbackup Client, users set up their backup routine and determine the reports they want to receive. By the help of the complementary web based airbackup Manager, organizations can centrally control their backed up devices and group them according to their needs. As a cloud-based solution, airbackup provides users with the comfort of a dependable restore from anywhere at any time. Furthermore, airbackup mitigates the risk of losing data from local breakdowns or natural catastrophes.

“We felt that many data backup solutions in market left quite a number of questions unanswered which is why we designed airbackup”, comments Holger Felgner, General Manager at TeamViewer. “airbackup supports organizations in setting up a viable business continuity and disaster recovery strategy, while relieving their IT budgets considerably. Apart from our BackupBoost™ technology airbackup users can benefit from the typical cloud advantages while performing targeted backups which do not interfere with their daily operations.”

The airbackup data center, located in Düsseldorf, Germany, meets the data protection laws of the European Union including:

  • Quality Management: ISO 9001:2008
  • Information Security certification: ISO/IEC 27001:2005

  • Environmental Management: ISO 14001:2004
  • Energy Management: ISO 50001:2011
  • Occupational Health & Safety Management: OHSAS 18001: 2007

airbackup supports the following data types:

  • Files and folders

IoT & Smart Cities Stories
The deluge of IoT sensor data collected from connected devices and the powerful AI required to make that data actionable are giving rise to a hybrid ecosystem in which cloud, on-prem and edge processes become interweaved. Attendees will learn how emerging composable infrastructure solutions deliver the adaptive architecture needed to manage this new data reality. Machine learning algorithms can better anticipate data storms and automate resources to support surges, including fully scalable GPU-c...
Machine learning has taken residence at our cities' cores and now we can finally have "smart cities." Cities are a collection of buildings made to provide the structure and safety necessary for people to function, create and survive. Buildings are a pool of ever-changing performance data from large automated systems such as heating and cooling to the people that live and work within them. Through machine learning, buildings can optimize performance, reduce costs, and improve occupant comfort by ...
The explosion of new web/cloud/IoT-based applications and the data they generate are transforming our world right before our eyes. In this rush to adopt these new technologies, organizations are often ignoring fundamental questions concerning who owns the data and failing to ask for permission to conduct invasive surveillance of their customers. Organizations that are not transparent about how their systems gather data telemetry without offering shared data ownership risk product rejection, regu...

Poor data quality and analytics drive down business value. In fact, Gartner estimated that the average financial impact of poor data quality on organizations is $9.7 million per year. But bad data is much more than a cost center. By eroding trust in information, analytics and the business decisions based on these, it is a serious impediment to digital transformation.
Digital Transformation: Preparing Cloud & IoT Security for the Age of Artificial Intelligence. As automation and artificial intelligence (AI) power solution development and delivery, many businesses need to build backend cloud capabilities. Well-poised organizations, marketing smart devices with AI and BlockChain capabilities prepare to refine compliance and regulatory capabilities in 2018. Volumes of health, financial, technical and privacy data, along with tightening compliance requirements by...
Predicting the future has never been more challenging - not because of the lack of data but because of the flood of ungoverned and risk laden information. Microsoft states that 2.5 exabytes of data are created every day. Expectations and reliance on data are being pushed to the limits, as demands around hybrid options continue to grow.

Enterprises have taken advantage of IoT to achieve important revenue and cost advantages. What is less apparent is how incumbent enterprises operating at scale have, following success with IoT, built analytic, operations management and software development capabilities - ranging from autonomous vehicles to manageable robotics installations. They have embraced these capabilities as if they were Silicon Valley startups.
As IoT continues to increase momentum, so does the associated risk. Secure Device Lifecycle Management (DLM) is ranked as one of the most important technology areas of IoT. Driving this trend is the realization that secure support for IoT devices provides companies the ability to deliver high-quality, reliable, secure offerings faster, create new revenue streams, and reduce support costs, all while building a competitive advantage in their markets. In this session, we will use customer use cases...
