F-Secure’s Personal Cloud Service has been selected by BT to power ‘BT Cloud’, a new personal cloud service that will enable millions of UK customers to safely back up and share photos, videos and personal files across their mobile, tablet or PC.
BT recognised that its consumer broadband customers needed a solution that would safely store and deliver their music, videos, photos, documents, and otherpersonal content. It chose F-Secure Personal Cloud Service as it offered a truly device-agnostic user experience for PC’s, Macs, smartphones and tablets and matched BT’s cloud vision. F-Secure Personal Cloud Service also met BT’s high standards of ease of use, security and accessibility. Most importantly, F-Secure has a track record of delivering award-winning carrier solutions for more than 200 operators worldwide, providing the foundation to forge a truly innovative partnership.
James Taqvi, Head of Connected Home at BT said: “Our objective is to offer our customers a superior broadband service. Customers told us they wanted help to keep their digital memories safe and unlock their digital lives through easy access to their files. The idea for BT Cloud was born and we turned to F-Secure to help develop and power this new service.
He added: “We wanted BT Cloud to make it as easy as possible for customers to store and interact with their content. We are confident that BT Cloud will not only provide customers with peace of mind, but will do so with an intuitive and engaging user experience.”

They want to easilypersonal content anywhere and they want to share photos and videos from their mobile, TV, PC or tablet without fear of loss, corruption or privacy issues.”
