"Their online storage -- basically a cloud technology -- fits into our strategy of providing security from and for the cloud," says Trend Micro CEO Eva Chen.

"The growth in mobile devices, iPad and Internet-enabled televisions means people want access to what they want, when they want it, and on whatever device they have with them," says Dan Conlon, co-founder and managing director of humyo, which is based in Leeds, U.K. "Online storage with synchronization makes that happen."

Trend Micro will discuss its plans for humyo later today in a conference call with analysts and press.
