CyberPlaza; Zoi Net Targets Digital Data Storage Mart on Internet


The real danger of the much-dreaded Y2K computer glitch is that users may lose their personal files at the stroke of midnight, Jan. 1. For this there is only one solution -- make a backup of your important files.

All this is easier said than done. The problem for users is that there are few safe places to put the valuable data in preparation for the doomsday of computer viruses and Y2K problems.

Chun Sung-young, president of Zoi Net, a data backup service provider, said the Internet is the ultimate answer.

``At this point, most backup devices are essentially limited since they can't ensure absolute safety of the data and they do not have mobility,'' Chun said during an interview with The Korea Times.

He said today's netizens are likely to move around, hopping from PC salons to their offices to home, and the Internet can secure both mobility and reliability in terms of data backup.

Zoi Net is the first company to introduce an Internet-based data backup service for individual users at its homepage (www.zoi.net).

The Internet vaulting service allows users to store up to 30MB of data for a monthly fee of 20,000 won.

The service targets those who want to put multimedia files such as digital photos or confidential data on the Internet and use them anywhere, anytime, Chun explained.

``Even though the market is yet to be vitalized, the market growth for digital cameras and other high-tech devices are merging with the Internet. This means that reliable mobile storage has strong commercial potential,'' he added.

In an effort to ensure the safety of data on the Internet, Zio Net has adopted a 128 bit security algorithm, which requires a personal password to gain access to the data.

Even system operators and managers are unable to break into the tightly protected vaulting system, Chun noted.

Moreover, Zio Net has formed a strategic alliance with Dr. Ahn's Anti-Virus Laboratories Inc., a leading computer virus solution provider, to scan data to detect computer viruses.

This business, however, is inherently vulnerable to small mistakes or break-in by hackers. If the vaulting system caves in to a hacker's attack, the business can immediately collapse.

``Although the chances of such disruptions are extremely slim, we have set up sort of last safety mechanism to protect our clients' valuable files,'' Chun said. …
