Trend Micro to acquire cloud storage firm humyo

Eyes expansion in online backup and data access

By CBR Staff Writer

Trend Micro has agreed to acquire UK-based online storage and data synchronisation firm humyo, as the internet content security firm eyes expansion in online backup and data access.

humyo provides an online storage centre that allows customers to benefit from automatic data synchronisation of files across computers and internet-connected devices. Using a web browser, consumers and small businesses can protect, access and share important files, anytime and anywhere.

Trend Micro said that the acquisition will allow it to expand its security promise to consumers and small businesses, by affording them with secure backup, recovery and constant access. In addition, current users of humyo products and services will have access to additional internet content security choices and development of new features.

Eva Chen, CEO of Trend Micro, said: "humyo’s superior data synchronisation technology – which allows multiple devices including PCs, Macs and smartphones to automatically backup to a common folder in the cloud so that consumer users can easily access their data from whatever device they have in hand – is a clear differentiator that helps to ensure that users’ files are always safe and secure as well as effortlessly organised.

"Their online storage-basically a cloud technology–fits into our strategy of providing security from and for the cloud."
