Product Philosophy

SOS Online Backup has a management interface that is intuitive, useful and very easy to control. You’ll immediately see how easy SOS Online Backup makes it to backup files when you run the initial setup. The program lets you select the files that you want to backup and has them broken down into general categories such as pictures or documents. If you want even more control over the files that you send to the cloud, then you can select specific folders, including networked drives. SOS gives you even more control over your files by integrating with your Windows OS and allowing for simple right click selection. All you have to is choose the file you want to backup, right click and then select the SOS Online Backup protection option.

storage security

Security

Besides the security you would expect from a cloud storage company like SOS Online Backup; the Live Protect feature adds an extra level of file security. This feature can monitor files for changes and back it up to the cloud whenever a change is made.

how much storage offered

Storage

SOS Online Backup has two types of services for cloud storage. The first is the home version and the second is for businesses. Because of their compression methods, 10 GB can go a long way. If you are a business user, then the storage plans are very straightforward and the best deals can be had from purchasing multiple years of service. The unlimited PC Backup plans for business can meet any need for storage size, but if you need more than 250 GB it will require a quote. Cloud storage space for up to 5 home PC’s is available in 50GB and 100GB plans.

how easy is it to use

Ease of Use

SOS Online Backup really takes the lead in control panel operation. The software is incredibly easy to learn and makes large scale deployment to PCs and laptops happen very smoothly. Another feature that is tied into the SOS control panel is SOS LiveProtect. This is a security feature that continually monitors and protects your data.
