STERLING, Va. and Issaquah, Washington — August 12, 2013
Fixmo, a leading provider of mobile security and mobility management solutions, today announced that Perlego’s product portfolio is now fully integrated into the Fixmo Carrier Services (Fixmo CS) division of Fixmo following the company’s acquisition of Perlego Systems Inc. in June. The integration expands the products’ capabilities and availability through mobile application stores.
Focused on delivering consumer-oriented mobile security and personal protection solutions through wireless operators and mobile device retailers, Fixmo Carrier Services’ products, Fixmo MoveIt! (formerly MoveIt!) and Fixmo Backup (formerly SaveIt!) allow for the secure transfer of mobile data and mobile content backup.
Securely Transferring Mobile Data
Fixmo MoveIt! is a mobile app that uses a Wi-Fi connection to transfer a consumer’s data (including their contacts, calendar, images, videos, iCloud contacts/calendars and Android text messages) to their newest smartphone, safeguarding against data loss and protecting customer content with industry-grade encryption throughout the process.
Major cellular carriers and retail outlets license Fixmo MoveIt! to provide data transfer as a value-added service to their customers. The mobile app can be used in-store at the point of sale or at home when consumers purchase a smartphone or tablet online.
iOS smartphones, iPads, the iPod Touch, Android smartphones and tablets and Blackberry 10 smartphones are currently supported by Fixmo MoveIt! Windows phone support is slated to be available in September. The application is available for download in the iTunes App Store, Google Play and Blackberry World.
Cloud-Based Mobile Data Backup
Fixmo Backup is a free, cloud-based app for consumer download to safeguard the data on their mobile devices. Should a consumer’s smartphone be lost, stolen or damaged, the ability to restore their backed up data across operating systems (Blackberry, Android, iPhone, iPad and Windows Phone) is critical. The Fixmo Backup app can be set to regularly backup mobile contacts, calendars, images and videos to the cloud; data which can then be restored to a new mobile device, keeping everything in tact. Fixmo partners and resellers can also license Fixmo Backup, passing a license code on to their customers.
Fixmo Backup is currently available for download in the iTunes App Store, Android Market, Windows Store and for legacy Blackberry devices (models prior to Blackberry 10).
“We look forward to continuing to evolve Fixmo Carrier Services’ solutions to outpace consumer’s mobile data demands in a landscape where corporate and personal data are co-residents on mobile devices,” said Rich Helgeson, Executive Vice President, Fixmo Carrier Services. “Not only are these solutions critical to protect what many consumers consider their most valuable asset—their mobile data—it also affords cellular carriers and retail outlet’s a new value-added service to offer directly to their customers at the point of sale.”
