    PHILADELPHIA - February 18, 2010 -

    Comcast Corporation (Nasdaq: CMCSA, CMCSK), one of the nation’s leading providers of entertainment, information and communication products and services, starting today is launching Secure Backup & Share to help its high-speed Internet customers reduce their risk of losing important files that are saved on their computers. According to Mozy, an industry leading online backup service from EMC (NYSE: EMC), an average of 140,000 hard drives crash in the United States every week. In addition to hard drive crashes, files that are saved digitally can be lost due to human error, stolen or misplaced computers, as well as viruses. Comcast wants to help reduce the risk of data loss and is encouraging consumers to backup and secure their digital files. 

    “Physical belongings once stored in shoeboxes, orange crates and manila file folders are now in the form of digital files spread across various computers and smart phones. Unfortunately, these digital files can be lost forever as the result of a simple hard drive crash, or after leaving a laptop bag in a taxi,” said Harel Kodesh, President of Mozy. “Online backup provides the peace-of-mind that comes from knowing your valuable files will always be available from just about anywhere at anytime.”

    “As customers create and consume more digital media content, the need for online backup and storage increases significantly. Backup devices, like an external hard drive, can be lost, stolen or damaged in a fire and even if you put your backup device in a safe-deposit box, you probably aren’t updating it regularly,” said Cathy Avgiris, Senior Vice President and General Manager of Communications and Data Services for Comcast. “Secure Backup & Share is embedded into our high-speed Internet service so you can retrieve and share your personal digital media from any Web-enabled or wireless device. Our cloud based storage solution will provide our customers with the backup and storage they need today as well as in the future,” Avgiris added.    

    Secure Backup & Share allows customers to backup and share important files and offers features including:

    • Online access for offsite backup – In the event of human error, a fire or a natural disaster, files are stored remotely and can be restored.
    • Convenient sharing – A personalized Web site allows customers to share their photos, videos, music and documents with family and friends. Many backupapplications offeran online vault, but few support mobile access to backed up content for convenient access and sharing on as many devices as Comcast.
    • Great value – Comcast High-Speed Internet customers automatically receive 2 GB of storage included with their subscription. This amount allows for storage of up to hundreds of photos, music files, or thousands of documents. Comcast also offers a 50 GB storage plan for $4.99 monthly or $49.99 annually, and a 200 GB storage plan for $9.99 monthly or $99.99 annually.
