Mozy is a cloud backup service designed for both personal and business use. The software automatically backs up files to the cloud on a schedule or in real-time, depending on user preferences. Mozy encrypts data at the source before it leaves the user's computer, allowing users to manage their own encryption keys for added security. In addition to supporting desktop operating systems such as Windows and macOS, Mozy offers server backups for Linux-based systems. For businesses with multiple users or workstations, Mozy provides centralized management tools that allow IT administrators to oversee backup operations across an organization from a single interface.
