Code 42 Software Releases Updated CrashPlan Mobile Apps for Elevated Security Accounts

CrashPlan and CrashPlan PRO apps updated to support highest security settings

(San Francisco - Macworld│iWorld 2012 Booth #910 – Jan. 24, 2012) – Code 42 Software Inc., developers of award-winning onsite, offsite and online backup solutions for consumers, businesses and the enterprise, today announced updates and new security enhancements to the CrashPlan and CrashPlan PRO mobile apps. The latest version adds support for the two elevated security options used by many CrashPlan users. Users who have specified private passwords or private encryption keys for their backups, now have full access to their CrashPlan archives from the free mobile apps, without giving up the extra security they prefer. Code 42 will be demonstrating the updated apps, along with CrashPlan, CrashPlan PRO and CrashPlan PROe, at Code42’s Macworld booth #910.

"We took our time adding this feature, because of the extreme importance we (and our users) place on the security of CrashPlan,” said Matthew Dornquast, co-founder and CEO, Code 42 Software. "We had to be sure it was right, and it was worth the wait. Not only have we added support for the highest security levels, we've dramatically increased the performance of the app when downloading from your archive."

The CrashPlan apps let CrashPlan+ or CrashPlan PRO users browse their backup archive, in the cloud, and download any files to any Apple iOS, Android or Windows device with just a tap. The apps are optimized for both phone and tablet devices, and feature built-in viewing for many common file types. An exclusive one-tap update feature informs the user when a file has been updated in their backup archive and retrieves the latest version of any changed file(s) with a single tap.

The mobile CrashPlan and CrashPlan PRO apps are currently available for free download via the Apple iTunes App Store, Android Marketplace, Microsoft's Windows Phone Marketplace and Amazon Appstore. The apps require a current subscription to either CrashPlan+ or CrashPlan PRO. To learn more about Code 42, visit their Macworld booth (#910) or www.code42.com.
