Alliance, Ohio, February 13, 2013 – Novosoft, an international software development and IT-consulting company, announces the release of an update to their key product Handy Backup™. The news comes exactly a week after Novosoft announced the release of the upcoming Handy Backup SDK. Version 7.3.3 facilitates creation of new backup jobs, has a new notification system that lets users track the status of PC protection, introduces a new way to browse online backups, and enables new users to easier upgrade from trial to full-featured version.

“While the release primarily focuses on speed and stability, it also has a number of new features designed to make backup procedures easier than before,” said Aleksey Dolgushev, head of Novosoft Development Department. “Particularly, Handy Backup 7.3.3 comes with a new notification system that ensures that backups are made in time, an updated web interface of our Online Backup service, and an automatic advisor that helps you decide which edition of the software you need.”
“Since our strategic aim is to create a world-class platform for cloud backup services, most of the recent improvements are related to our enterprise backup solution, Handy Backup Network Server,” added Alexander Rassokhin, product manager of Handy Backup. “This commitment poses a number of security and performance challenges, and that’s what the update is about. With version 7.3.3, Handy Backup makes a further step from an end-user product to a global platform, and if everything goes as planned, we will launch a new cloud backup service based on it in early spring.”
Earlier, the company announced a plan to release a cloud-optimized version of Handy Backup capable of running in a distributed environment and interchanging data with desktop clients and an SDK to let third-party developers create customized versions of the program. The update to 7.3.3 is free and recommended for all users.
