LogMeIn’s Cubby Online Backup

The new online backup supplier from LogMeIn, Cubby, may be a tad late entering into the online backup race, but due to its aggressive approach is becoming known as a reputable newcomer of the industry. Its service was originally completely free during April, but customers will have to sign up with new pricing plans once the company releases their rates very soon.

Once the pricing subscription structure is introduced, the online backup service will continue to remain in beta mode. However, this is all set to change in the opening stages of 2013.

The current free version, known as Cubby Basic, will continue to offer customers most of the features accessible during the free beta period, such as access to data from Macs, PCs and tablets.

Both free and paid tiers offer online backup, file versioning, public and private sharing, AES 256 bit encryption protection, and data access from Windows, Mac and Android devices. Pro users will additionally have access to DirectSync, one of Cubby’s more prestigious tools, accompanied by increased support and user encryption keys known as Cubby Locks, which let customers set their own file passwords. This could be particularly handy for protecting files on those mobile devices which are easily lost or stolen.

LogMeIn is a Boston, Massachusetts-based company.
