[8:00 AM] BackJack Online Backups Adds International Service
by Staff

Synectics Business Solutions just announced the availability of its BackJack Online Backup Service to the international market, since it was restricted to Canada before. According to Synectics:

BackJack is a Mac-only online backup solution which enables users to get their critical files backed up and offsite - automatically, securely and cost effectively.

Until now, Synectics was prohibited from the international export of its BackJack service due to the strength of the encryption algorithm (128 bit CAST) built directly into its software. Approval from the Canadian government (under the General Export Permit No. 39) now means that Synectics can offer BackJack to Macintosh-based organizations and individual Mac users around the world with the exception of the following restricted countries: Iran, Iraq, North Korea, Republic of Yugoslavia, Myanmar and Angola.

BackJack costs US$9.95 per month for the Lite Plan (40 MB storage) and the Premium Plan (100 MB storage) costs US$17.50. More information and a free trial can be found on BackJack's home page.
