humyo.com was an online file storage service that synchronized files across multiple computers and a remote data store. Files stored in humyo could be shared with other users and published on web pages. The company owned a former Bank of England bullion vault in which it housed the servers used to store its users' data.[4]

Company history[edit]

humyo.com was founded in 2007 by Dan Conlon (MD) and Peter Dubens (Chairman) and initially offered 30GB of storage space for free.

The company closed its beta in March 2008 with 100,000 users[5] and by August 2008 had 215,000.[3]

In October 2008, the company reduced the amount of storage space offered free of charge to new users to 10GB.[6] (5GB for Pictures, Videos, and Music and 5GB for Other files)

On 11 June 2010 it was announced that the company was acquired by Japanese anti-virus company Trend Micro.[7]

In September 2010 the service was re-branded to Trend Micro SafeSync.[8]
