These two innovative French companies have combined their business expertise to meet the needs of French consumers: secure storage of their accumulated photos, videos, and documents on their computers, smartphones, and tablets.

Thomson, a leader in the high-tech market, has chosen Oodrive—the European leader in sensitive data management—as its partner to offer its clients 100% French-made applications.

Shared expertise in supporting cutting-edge technologies.

In today’s connected world, devices such as computers, smartphones, and tablets play an increasingly important role in consumers’ lives. Such devices have become indispensable. They hold within them very important memories and files: vacation photos, videos, and administrative documents. That is why saving and protecting your personal data is no longer just necessary but absolutely imperative.

With this in mind, Thomson—a key player in consumer electronics—has developed a range of 100% French-made and 100% secure solutions, in partnership with Oodrive. By choosing Oodrive, Thomson is offering its users an unshakable guarantee concerning the protection and confidentiality of their data.

What are the benefits for users?

With this 100% made-in-France service offer, Thomson is offering its customers two applications:

Thomson Backup: once the application is installed on a PC, the user can back up all their personal files. In the event of a virus, breakage, loss, theft, or a change of computer, Thomson Backup makes it possible to install the identical files on a new PC. And, if the    device is infected by a virus, the application lets the user quickly and easily retrieve all their data.

Thomson Picsbox: this smartphone application is based on an Oodrive solution called “SOS Photos”. Its automatic backup feature gives users the assurance that they will never again lose the photos and videos stored on their smartphones. Picsbox also frees up smartphone storage space with a single click. In this way, the application prevents the device’s memory from getting filled up too quickly. Thomson Picsbox even lets users share their photo albums with their family and friends, or view their pictures on other devices (tablets, computers, etc.).

Through this partnership, Thomson has reassured its users about the confidentiality and security of their data. Those data are hosted in France, they are exclusively subject to European laws, and are subject to the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR); a unified and protective framework for users’ personal data.
