The personal cloud service can secures user data (contacts and calendars), rich media (pictures, videos and music) and files in the cloud, syncs these across mobile devices and computers, and allows sharing via email and social networks.

Just like other nations in the world, Brazil has been experiencing positive trends in technology specifically adopting smartphones, tablets and personal computers.

The service supports all popular smartphones, tablets and personal computers. It is managed by FS VAS, a premier provider of mobile value added services in South America. The data is stored in Brazil with AWS technology.

“As people use more mobile devices, having an easy way to back up valuable data, access it anytime and share it becomes important”, said Alberto Leite, CEO at FS VAS. “TIM is pleased to offer Protect Backup, powered by Funambol and managed by FS VAS, to simplify the digital lives of mobile customers.”

"By offering a personal cloud service, TIM is well positioned to assist subscribers with their expanding mobile needs and can significantly strengthen their relationship with customers," said in a statement, Amit Chawla (News - Alert), Funambol CEO. "Funambol is pleased to work with FS VAS to enable TIM to offer this valuable and easy-to-use mobile service."
