WOODLAND HILLS, Calif., July 21 /PRNewswire/ -- Pro Softnet Corporation, a leader in the Storage-as-a-Service, Online Backup and Storage market, today announced that IDrive Online backup ( www.idrive.com ) is now available in the Japanese Language.

This commences IDrive Online Backup's foray into penetrating the Japanese Market. The Japanese version is being priced similar to the existing English Version. IDrive Pro Plans start at $4.95 per month or $49.50 per annum. IDrive Basic Plan offers free 2GB of storage, with no credit card required to sign up.

"We have observed a rapid adoption of online backup among consumers and Small Businesses and almost 20% of our customers are outside of US. This is a great time to offer localization in different languages. It is a very significant step for IDrive. We plan to expand Online Backup in other languages and will be announcing other localized versions shortly," says Shweta S., COO at Pro Softnet Corp.

IDrive continues to update its offering with functional and performance improvements. Based on internal tests and some professional reviews conducted recently, IDrive outperforms the competition by a significant factor in both backups and restores. Performance is a key factor, especially for online backup where large amounts of data has to be pushed through a thin internet pipe available at the user end.

IDrive Online Backup is, in a nutshell, fast, simple, secure and reliable. It takes just 2 clicks to install and protect critical data with IDrive. IDrive's competitive advantage in the fragmented online backup marketplace lies in its breadth of features and performance. PC Pro Labs verdict on IDrive service: flexible, high-speed backup service at a price that's more than reasonable. The icing on the cake is the speed of the service.
