About SOS Online Backup

SOS Online Backup has developed a revolutionary technology for secure, web-based offsite backup. The software was developed when dial up was the main source of Internet access; therefore the technology only calculates and sends file changes since the previous backup. This process dramatically reduces the time spent backing up customer files and allows the user to store an unlimited number of versions for each file. In addition, the software allows users to select a personalized schedule for backing up files. Users can select from updating files monthly, weekly, daily or maintaining continuous file protection.

In 2006 PC Magazine, PC Authority, PC Pro, PC User and Tucows gave SOS their editor's choice awards and recommendations. With 6 global data facilities worldwide and offices on 4 continents, SOS is active 24 hours a day.
