Officially Out of the Box: LogMeIn's Cloud Sync and Store Service, Cubby, Now Generally Available

WOBURN, Mass., Feb. 6, 2013 - Following a beta that
attracted more users than any other in the company's history, LogMeIn
Inc. (Nasdaq:LOGM) announced the general availability of its new cloud
sync and storage service, Cubby. An easy-to-use, secure cloud service
for sharing files across devices and with other people, Cubby offers
the flexibility to turn any number of PC or Mac folders into 'cubbies'
that can be accessed from Android phones and tablets, iPads and
iPhones, as well other PCs and Macs from virtually anywhere in the
world. People can quickly share individual files or entire folders with
others via a simple one-click link, or can choose to invite friends,
colleagues, clients, and business partners into their 'cubbies' to
collaborate across shared files and projects. The free version, Cubby
Basic, includes Cubby's signature sync-in-place flexibility (any folder
can be a 'cubby'), free desktop and mobile apps, 5GB of cloud storage,
and the ability to share files via the cloud. A premium version, Cubby
Pro, builds on this by offering the flexibility to share content across
computers with or without the cloud (via Cubby's distinct
DirectSync(TM) mode), additional controls for sharing your most
sensitive content, multi-user accounts, and 100GB or more of cloud

Cubby joins LogMeIn's popular online meeting and collaboration service
join.me, and LogMeIn's namesake remote access product, LogMeIn
Free/Pro, as part of the company's access and collaboration cloud
services. These simple, secure cloud services -- offered in both free
and premium versions -- are used by tens of millions of individuals to
work from virtually anywhere across a blend of work and personal
devices, while helping hundreds of thousands of small and medium
businesses boost collaboration across distributed teams and offices.

"Cloud file sharing services too often force people to make choices
between personal or business use, simplicity or flexibility,
accessibility or security --compromises that don't reflect the
realities of how technology is increasingly adopted and used in today's
mobile workplace. A nod to the rise of employee-introduced consumer
cloud apps, Cubby is designed to deliver the elegance and ease
individuals enjoy with the security and flexibility businesses demand,"
said Michael Simon, CEO of LogMeIn. "We believe that the overwhelmingly
positive response we received during the Cubby beta -- attracting both
first-time cloud file sharing users and converts -- points to broader
demand for services like Cubby that help individuals and businesses,
alike, reimagine the ways they collaborate on content."

This blend of ease, security, and flexibility helped Cubby attract
consumers, professionals, teams and even entire businesses into the

"Cubby gives our staff an easy way to make their files accessible and
easily sharable without asking them to change the way they work --
there's no need to dump everything into a single magic cloud folder or
replicate their existing folders in another service," said Shannon
Browne, IT manager at Xander Media Group, a Pennsylvania-based
publisher of trade magazines. "It's secure, and requires virtually no
instruction to get started. Cubby just works the way we do, and that
means our team members can collaborate on the projects needed to meet
our deadlines, no matter where they are."

A breakdown of Cubby Basic and Cubby Pro

The Basic version of Cubby includes:

-- 5GB free cloud storage, with the option to earn extra storage by
referring others who create a Cubby account

-- Access to files anywhere from virtually any device via Cubby's free
desktop, web and mobile apps (includes Windows-based PCs, Macs, Android
devices, iPads and iPhones), including the ability to sync files across
multiple devices using the cloud

-- The flexibility to make any folder a 'cubby' -- and make as many cubbies
as desired

-- Multiple ways to share files and collaborate with others. Content can be
shared with others by inviting them into a cubby, which lets both
parties see, work with, and sync content; or it can be shared through
simple read-only links to files and cubbies, an option that provides
quick sharing even with people who don't have a Cubby account

Cubby Pro yearly subscriptions start at $6.99/month per user, prepaid
annually ($83.88/year) and include:

-- Syncing of information across devices with or without cloud data
storage. Cubby Pro's distinct DirectSync(TM) mode provides the ability
to sync an unlimited amount of information across computers (PCs and
Macs) without ever having to store your data in the cloud. DirectSync
can be used individually or collaboratively with any other Cubby Pro
user to share small collections of files or even terabytes of content
across devices.

-- Optional added control and security over sensitive information with
Cubby Locks. Both the Basic and Pro versions of Cubby have been
architected from the ground up to be highly secure. Cubby is built on
LogMeIn's own cloud data sync and storage service -- not hosted on a
third party cloud data platform -- and takes advantage of the same
online-banking-level encryption capabilities used in LogMeIn's
connectivity offerings (like LogMeIn Free and Pro, LogMeIn Rescue and
join.me). With Cubby Locks, users of Cubby Pro gain additional control
over access to their most sensitive information, including password
requirements on shared cubbies and sole ownership of their encryption

-- 100GB of cloud storage per user. Cubby Pro users start with 100GB per
user and can simply add users and additional space as desired. In
multiuser accounts, this additional space is shared between users,
making it a perfect option for team collaboration (e.g. a 2 user pro
account costs $13.98 per month billed annually and comes with 200GB of
cloud storage that can be shared between the users). Cubby Pro accounts
with multiple users can also be upgraded to add more individual space or
shared space, as desired.

LogMeIn is opening up the option for both new and existing Cubby users
to take a risk-free 14-day test drive of Cubby Pro's premium features,
at any time, simply by activating the features in the product.
