January 7, 2008 - Seagate announced a free software upgrade, Maxtor Central Axis.


The upgrade provides secure, remote access that retrieves content stored on Maxtor Shared Storage II network attached drive through any Internet browser.


Some remote access applications require a breach in a firewall, leaving networks and data vulnerable. Maxtor's Web access and share software upgrade will enable a secure way to access content stored on a Maxtor Shared Storage II device over the Web without breaching network firewalls.


Those with existing Maxtor Shared Storage II products can access and share content on their home storage device. There are no downloadable applications or plug-ins required. The Maxtor Shared Storage II establishes a secure connection to the service without the need to disable firewalls.


To access the drive from a Web browser, use a username and password.
