EMC-owned Mozy has updated its online backup and restore service for Mac users, promising enhanced performance and stability.
Mozy 2.0 for Mac is aimed at SMEs, and features a new on/off switch for automatic backups and a refreshed setup assistant, the firm said.
The software boasts faster upload speeds with optimised bandwidth use. File scanning has been speeded up as has the pre-transfer process, via improvements to the back-end of the system, said Claire Galbois-Alcaix, European senior marketing manager at Mozy.
Users can also create advanced rules which automatically include or exclude specific types of data, the firm added.
Mozy 2.0 also delivers greater visibility into files that are backed up, in response to customer feedback.
The release underscores the firm's commitment to the Mac community, according to Russ Stockdale, vice president of product management at Mozy.
"We did not want to simply take Mozy 2.0 for Windows and make it work on a Mac. We wanted to make a version of our service that looked and felt like a Mac application, so that's what we've done," he said.
"We plan to continue to be a market leader with online backup for Mac users. "
Mozy 2.0 for Mac is available now in the US and is scheduled to roll out across Europe by the end of the year. Users with the current edition of Mozy for Mac will be able to upgrade at no extra cost.
Users purchasing Mozy Home will be able to get the Mac specific software for £4.99 per month. Business users opting for Mozy Pro will be charged £3.99 per month, plus 50p per GB.
