After winning a national Australian Information Industry Association (AIIA) iAward earlier in the year, Memory Box has won at the Asia Pacific ICT Alliance (APICTA) awards held in Melbourne as part of the Asia Pacific Digital Innovation Summit.
In further proof that the Memory Box online backup solution is a ground breaking product, it took out the Tools and Infrastructure category; 150 international competitors in 16 categories and across more than 20 regional economies were competing for the APICTA awards.
The APICTA is an international awards program which is aimed at increasing ICT awareness in the community and assisting in bridging the digital divide. By providing networking and product benchmarking opportunities to ICT innovators and entrepreneurs in the region, the program is designed to stimulate ICT innovation and creativity, promote economic and trade relations, facilitate technology transfer, and offer business-matching opportunities via exposure to venture capitalists and investors.
Trevor Glen, Managing Director of Memory Box, commented: “This is a great result for us and gives Memory Box further exposure into the Asia Pacific region. It could not have come at a better time as we complete our final market testing.”
Memory Box provides an innovative solution to online backup by using a community of users on which parts of the backups are stored. It is the first system to use a community of networked computers to store backups rather than a single server in a data centre.
Every year, one in 10 hard drives fail and 40% of computer users lose precious memories or hard work…yet many users still do not backup their files. Memory Box research showed this was often due to apathy and users seeing it as a time consuming hassle. The Memory Box solution is specifically designed to solve this as it is automated and runs in the background of a user’s computer after a simple set up.

Memory Box Pty Ltd was born out of Sarugo, a software company focused on developing software applications that make life easier for everyone: business or home users. They knew that protecting treasured memories and hard work needn't be such a bind - so they developed Memory Box.
