New service gives Families to SMBs a place to Manage their Digital Property PALO ALTO, CA â€“ October 28, 2010 â€“ Gogobeans launched today
, a web-based service providing users with their own personal space on the Internet to store, organize, and share digital property. When users upload their material to their account, Gogobeans wraps a four-tier security layer around each digital asset, or bean, which allows users to determine with whom to share the bean. Beans can be shared directly by â€œbouncing a beanâ€? to specified individuals or over popular social media networks like Facebook, Twitter, and Digg. Users can search by keyword or file name to locate the digital property stored or connected to their personal Gogobeans locker. Gogobeans digital lockers are accessible from any internet ready device. Its cross-platform access, flexibility of accepted media combined with the security of how and when beans are shared makes the service ideal for anyone looking to store, organize and share digital files ranging from photos and digital music to large graphic design files and presentations. When Gogobeans users share a bean, they arenâ€™t sending along the file itself. They are granting permission to access the existing storage location to the people they elect to share it with. Not only can recipients connect to those bounced beans, the sender can track their bean like a FedEx package to ensure itâ€™s been received by the intended recipient. This gives users a whole new level of control over sharing their digital resources â€œSmall businesses can keep everything they need to run their business, such as sales collateral, contact databases, presentations and more while enabling access to teleworkers or traveling, employees,â€? explains Tony De Ruvo. â€œFamilies can store their family photos, video, important documents like deeds, wills and have complete control of who has access to specific material. Itâ€™s like owning your own secure piece of the Internet.â€? Gogobeans provides up to 1 Gigabytes of storage at no cost. Monthly subscriptions are available starting at $5 with additional storage and enhanced feature options. About Gogobeans: Gogobeans provides a place to store, organize and share your digital life.
