Editor’s Bottom Line of SOS Online Backup

 

SOS runs quietly and automatically in the background on PC, Mac, and Android, but iPhones and iPads must be backed up manually. It can protect USB, FireWire, Thunderbolt, and eSATA drives, and network-attached storage from any PC, Mac or Linux computer.

SOS owns all their own data centers. Many competitors partner with service providers, like Amazon and Google, but SOS keeps it all in house. Their twelve data centers are spread throughout the world on five continents. Data on each server is redundantly backed up to a secondary server daily.

SOS UltraSafe is HIPAA certified for medical data, and compliant with Securities and Exchange Commission, Sarbanes-Oxley, also known as SOX, for financial data. The data is encrypted locally, encrypted during transit using SSL, then encrypted a third time within SOS’s servers. With UltraSafe MAX, the encryption keys are not stored on SOS servers; the data will be so secure that if you lose your password it cannot be recovered. SOS is a good service to look into if you have sensitive data that needs to be backed up.
