CyberSynchs, a major player in universal data backup and synchronisation systems, has extended its global mobile data services to the Nigerian market.  The service is for mobile device users across the country.

The service provides the much needed storage and protection of mobile data in a cost-effective way, in the circumstance of data loss, theft or malfunction of the mobile phone and other mobile devices like tablets, iPads, iPhones, laptops, that run on operating systems like Android, Windows, Java, among others.

The service, which works with any mobile phone and 98 per cent of operating systems, allows users to synchronise their most common types of data such as contacts, photos, videos, calendar entries, text messages, GPS location, among otters, to the web, over the air.

Storage plans are available in increments of 3GB, 5GB and 10 GB and can be billed monthly, bimonthly, biannually or yearly, depending on the choice of the user.

Introducing the service to Nigerians at a press launch in Lagos recently, the Chief Executive Officer of CyberSynchs, Mr. Amos Winbush, said people all over the world were becoming more digitised, using data on their mobile devices for virtually everything.

He however said there could be serious global challenges, should the data get missing or become dis-functional through theft, loss of mobile devices or loss of data itself.

He explained that the best way to avoid the unexpected is to backup and synchronise the data, which he said, is a service that CyberSynchs brings to Nigeria today in a cost-effective way.

He said although most telecoms operators already have backup service systems on their various networks, the CyberSynchs offering makes it a lot easier and cheaper, since its charges are one-off that comes through monthly, bimonthly, biannually or yearly subscription depending on the choice of the user.

Addressing the issue of data insecurity, Winbush said the data is stored in a secured space in the cloud and that all data on its platform, would remain encrypted and protected from attacks or unauthorised access, hence it is partnering Microsoft and telecoms companies in Nigeria to achieve this.

He said the service has been introduced globally in countries like Russia, China, Brazil, Argentina, where it has been successful so far in its seven years of data backup service offerings. He said access to stored data is pass worded and only the user controls it through a coded password known to the user alone.
