AVG launches Livek, storage space in the cloud
AVG wants to deliver an online storage space to users, allowing them to transfer data in order to be able to retrieve them from any PC or Mac and a terminal or iOS Android, through the application of AVG.
However, the offer cloud storage AVG is a paid solution. The company specializes in computer security provides the ability to hold a space of 25 GB for $ 50 U.S. per year or get hold of unlimited space for the sum of U.S. $ 80.
Users will be able to manually upload files, folders and multimedia content of their choice or opt for the option of automatic synchronization. For example, users can schedule automatic synchronization for performing a backup of their computer.
Since AVG is offering the service, it is legitimate to expect a level of security Livek relatively high. In this regard, the editor states that antivirus military-grade encryption ensures that the user’s records and files will remain secure and confidential. If the user wishes, he will share its content hosted in the cloud with its contacts “creating spaces dedicated to sharing.”
As highlighted on Cnet, the new service AVG based in the cloud is very similar to that already offered by Dropbox, for example. Unlike Livek, Dropbox offers a free option but to host a maximum of 2 GB of data. Greater volumes of storage are allocated a monthly cons: 50 GB for $ 10/month or $ 20 cons 100 GB per month.
AVG offers free unlimited storage space for a trial period of 30 days.
Livek service is not yet proposed in Canada, but a system of email notification will inform interested parties when this will happen.
