SOS Online Backup Adds Collaborate Private Cloud

EL SEGUNDO, CA -- (Marketwire) -- 02/06/12 -- SOS Online Backup, the award-winning provider of cloud-based backup solutions, announced the launch of SOS Collaborate Private Cloud. SOS Collaborate has been developed to provide secure, enterprise-wide document syncing and collaboration for today's data-centric businesses. SOS Collaborate combines the ease-of-use and simplicity of recently popularized public cloud sharing/sync tools with an on-premise or in-datacenter deployment model that lets CTOs sleep at night.

There has been an exponential rise in the unauthorized use of public cloud file sharing services within today's businesses. This 'stealth cloud' is unsecured and typically operated outside of corporate IT, posing significant risk to the security and leakage of corporate data. Known for helping businesses protect their files, SOS is now helping these business users sync all of their devices, access files from anywhere, and share files with others, in a secure and compliant way.

"Consider an employee of a defense contractor using something like Dropbox. What happens to those files when the employee leaves the company? That's enough to give any CIO or CTO heartburn," said Ken Shaw, CEO of SOS Online Backup. "Think of SOS Collaborate as a secure, enterprise-friendly Dropbox that a company can host on their own infrastructure. I can put a file in the SOS Collaborate folder on my desktop, and immediately have it in the cloud. Then I can share it, edit it, access it from all my devices, and without realizing it as a user, I'm doing it all over my company's own secure infrastructure."

SOS Collaborate is a groupware platform that provides secure file syncing, sharing, editing, commenting, and document management for users, hosted on a company's own infrastructure. It provides transparent organizational reporting and controls for data leak prevention and is designed for use by enterprises of all sizes, including those subject to various regulatory requirements (HIPAA, SSAE 16, SAS 70 Type II, Sarbanes-Oxley, GLBA, and PCI). Leveraging SOS's background in big-data public cloud software and hundreds of man-years of product engineering, SOS Collaborate uses AES 256 bit encryption throughout and delivers robust security, reporting and access controls for admins, without sacrificing ease of use.
