BOCA RATON, Fla., Feb. 9, 2011 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Safe Technologies International, Inc. (OTCBB:SFAZ) is changing the way businesses buy technical support together with other essential IT services, like data backup, disaster recovery, mobile device support, support, and email hosting and archiving , all of which have become essential to business survival in the digital age. Safe Technologies is an emerging innovator of remote-based support, "Software as a Service" ("SaaS") and cloud-based provider of mission-critical IT, backup and disaster recovery services. These services are offered through the company's Strategic Data Support ("SDS") brand which provides customizable solutions that create significant cost efficiencies.

By selling services on a flat-rate, fixed cost basis, SDS allows its customers to purchase essential services on a low, predictable, operational cost basis rather than the usually expensive, upfront capital expense route. The Company is well positioned in a $126 billion growth industry and will uniquely differentiate itself by delivering compelling and comprehensive technical capabilities. A broad, integrated, comprehensive offering of IT services allows SFAZ to act as a full service provider to its customers. Unlike most of its competitors who have limited or single service offerings, SFAZ offers a full range of solutions, including hosting, cloud computing, storage, applications, network, and security services.

"We are able to leverage powerful, cutting-edge technology platform services and provide them to small to medium-sized businesses at a cost that simply wasn't possible even a year ago," commented Christopher Kolb, President of Safe Technologies. The Strategic Data Support ("SDS") suite of services includes:

  • TotalSupport – SDS's 24/7 remote IT support starting at $29.99 per month per workstation
  • MobileRescue – SDS's flat-rate remote smartphone support service priced from $99.99 annually or $49.99 for a one-time smartphone set-up
  • TotalEmail – SDS's hosted business class cloud based email and email archiving solutions starting at $1.99 per month per mailbox
  • Data SafeHarbor – SDS's offsite and real-time data backup and imaging solutions starting at $19.99 per month per workstation
  • OfficeBio – SDS's flagship 24/7/365 network monitoring platform that identifies and fixes common office network issues remotely and priced from $59.99 per month

"SaaS and cloud computing are transforming the way that services are delivered to businesses. Applications that used to be cost prohibitive are now available to just about any business." Kolb continued, "The result is that small, technologically savvy businesses are able to compete with much larger companies that have not embraced the new digital economy. The statistics are convincing; 60% of companies that lose their data will shut down within 6 months and companies that aren't able to resume operations within ten days (of a disaster) are not likely to survive. Hard drive recovery can cost more than $7,500 and technical support typically runs $125-$175 per hour. That's a compelling reason to not only protect your data but also to engage a technology partner that will give your business an edge, without breaking the bank. We help businesses enhance reliability and grow their capabilities without increasing headcount."
