WOBURN, Mass., Feb. 6, 2013 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Following a beta that attracted more users than any other in the company's history, LogMeIn Inc. (Nasdaq:LOGM) announced the general availability of its new cloud sync and storage service, Cubby. An easy-to-use, secure cloud service for sharing files across devices and with other people, Cubby offers the flexibility to turn any number of PC or Mac folders into 'cubbies' that can be accessed from Android phones and tablets, iPads and iPhones, as well other PCs and Macs from virtually anywhere in the world. People can quickly share individual files or entire folders with others via a simple one-click link, or can choose to invite friends, colleagues, clients, and business partners into their 'cubbies' to collaborate across shared files and projects. The free version, Cubby Basic, includes Cubby's signature sync-in-place flexibility (any folder can be a 'cubby'), free desktop and mobile apps, 5GB of cloud storage, and the ability to share files via the cloud. A premium version, Cubby Pro, builds on this by offering the flexibility to share content across computers with or without the cloud (via Cubby's distinct DirectSync™ mode), additional controls for sharing your most sensitive content, multi-user accounts, and 100GB or more of cloud storage.
Cubby joins LogMeIn's popular online meeting and collaboration service join.me, and LogMeIn's namesake remote access product, LogMeIn Free/Pro, as part of the company's access and collaboration cloud services. These simple, secure cloud services – offered in both free and premium versions – are used by tens of millions of individuals to work from virtually anywhere across a blend of work and personal devices, while helping hundreds of thousands of small and medium businesses boost collaboration across distributed teams and offices.
"Cloud file sharing services too often force people to make choices between personal or business use, simplicity or flexibility, accessibility or security –compromises that don't reflect the realities of how technology is increasingly adopted and used in today's mobile workplace. A nod to the rise of employee-introduced consumer cloud apps, Cubby is designed to deliver the elegance and ease individuals enjoy with the security and flexibility businesses demand," said Michael Simon, CEO of LogMeIn. "We believe that the overwhelmingly positive response we received during the Cubby beta – attracting both first-time cloud file sharing users and converts – points to broader demand for services like Cubby that help individuals and businesses, alike, reimagine the ways they collaborate on content."
