Cox Launches Premium Online Back-Up and Security Services for SMBs

Cox Business is expanding its portfolio of services for Small to Medium sized Businesses (SMBs) in its Northern Virginia market. Premium Online Back-up and Premium Security Suite will be available for customers using Cox Business Internet service at no additional cost. These new services will help ensure that Cox customers' local network data is protected by providing anti-virus, anti-spyware, and a firewall for intrusion detection as well as safely storing this data at a secure off-site location.

Premium Online Back-up enables customers to establish a data back-up profile that includes the specific files to be backed-up and the frequency of back-up. Once the profile has been established and implemented, back-up is automatic and the customer can forget about it and focus on their business. Additionally, Premium Online Back-up provides customers with online file sharing and "Whalemail". Whalemail capability enables customers to provide others with secure access to centrally stored files via an e-mail link and provides administrative tools that enable the customer administrator to manage the storage space and run usage reports.

Premium Security Suite is a business class service with seven scanning engines that scan for local network data, providing first class protection with an industry leading detection rate. The service also has an online administrative tool that enables the customer administrator to manage and track the effectiveness of the Premium Security Suite for their company.
