LOS ANGELES, Nov. 18 /PRNewswire/ -- SOS Online Backup, a global leader in online backup technology, today announced the launch of SOS for iPhone. SOS for iPhone is an application designed to offer users access to their digital content anytime and anywhere. With SOS for iPhone, digital content such as photos, presentations, documents and music which has been protected with SOS can be easily accessed, streamed and shared.

"Online backup as a service is growing and evolving into a more complex offering," said Ken Shaw, Chief Technology Officer of SOS Online Backup. "Online backup is not just backing up your data offsite anymore. The trend in the industry is growing towards offering value added services such as management, access and sharing capabilities in addition to online backup."

SOS Online Backup gives users the ability to back-up and store data "in the cloud." The SOS cloud stores customer data in six different data centers around the world, in locations including the United States, India, Europe and Australia.

"These days the traditional idea of 'going to work' has transformed from being strapped to a desk into being able to access your network 24/7 through mobile devices. With more and more people working via mobile, there is a strong need to ensure your data is both protected and accessible," said Shaw. "SOS Online Backup already features local and offsite backup as well as strong sharing capabilities. SOS for iPhone now allows users complete access to their data on-demand through the iPhone in addition to our web portal." As one user commented: "With my 8GB iPhone I can listen to and stream 100GB of music in real-time."
