Detailed Features Guide: SOS Online Backup

  1. 1. SOS DETAILED FEATURES GUIDE Award-Winning Universal Data Protection “SOS Online Backup is the only online backup service that’s both simple to use and powerful ” - PC magazine Best of Breed SOS Online Backup has been PC Magazine Editors’ Choice backup solution for the last three years and is the category leader and one of the most established SaaS vendors in the market. Free Integrated Local Backup Online backup is invaluable but simply is not designed to protect your entire computer. Using SOS’s local backup system, you can backup your entire computer, open/locked and operating system files to any local medium whether it is an external USB drive, a local network location, a USB stick or an iPod. Powerful Recovery SOS keeps an unlimited version history of all your files – allowing you to roll back to any version of any of your files. Use our time machine feature to go back to the date you want to restore your backup and recover that snapshot of files & versions, for example, your tax records as at April 14 last year. © SOS Online Backup.

  2. 2. SOS DETAILED FEATURES GUIDE Award-Winning Universal Data Protection Continuous Data Protection Engage Live Protect TM SOS’s Continuous Data Protection module to have SOS back up files as soon as a change is detected. You change a file, and we’ll back it up instantly. Physical Media Upload Chances are you have at least 20 to 30 GB of data to backup. Over the wire, that can literally take weeks. SOS’s exclusive PMU technology lets you “seed” your backup by sending your encrypted data on a DVD. Alternatively we can send you a hard disk overnight and you can copy your backup to that disk. After that, just the binary that are changed will be transferred, meaning your daily backup takes just minutes. Unlimited Number of Computer SOS lets you backup as many computers as you like using one account. Over 60% of households have more than one computer and SOS allows you to protect and recover from all of your machines unlike our competitors. Backup your home, office and laptop computers all on one account for easy access to ALL your files from anywhere. © SOS Online Backup. All right reserved. SOSDFG1
  3. 3. SOS DETAILED FEATURES GUIDE Award-Winning Universal Data Protection Enhanced Security & Privacy The SOS system ensures complete privacy protection. SOS uses a three-tiered encryption system which encrypts data on the user’s computer, again in transit and finally when at rest in storage. Users can also opt to use SOS UltraSafeTM which means that not even the SOS’s engineers can view the data stored on the SOS servers. Only the user who put it there can ever access the data. This stands in contrast to most other online backup systems, where data is neither encrypted on your client, nor stored as encrypted data so as to prevent employees of the software vendor from accessing stored data. Enterprise Compression & Transfer Systems The SOS compression system only backs up changed files and then only the changed 1’s and 0’s are transferred. On a 500 MB database (MYOB/Intuit/Turbo Tax) the daily transfer can be as small as 5 KB. Our transfer system is enterprise grade, meaning that large file transfers are resumed at the KB of interruption, and do not start at the beginning like most online backup systems. © SOS Online Backup.

  4. 4. SOS DETAILED FEATURES GUIDE Award-Winning Universal Data Protection Unlimited Versioning & Archiving Unlike other online backup systems, we do not delete the file from your backup just because you delete the file from your computer. Other companies call this “archiving” and refuse to do it. If you delete your local file, they remove it from your online backup storage. We call it “proper backup”. Over 80% of data loss occurs due to accidental deletion. With SOS you can be rest assured that we keep every version of every file forever, until you tell us to remove it. Intelligent File Filters To help you backup precisely what you want to, tell SOS Online Backup to watch your My Documents folder but to ignore all *.mp3’s and *.avi’s. Alternatively you can tell SOS to only protect *.doc, and *.xls. Either use our pre-sets or set your own inclusion/exclusion mask. Flexible Scheduling It is possible to schedule monthly, weekly, daily, hourly or perform an instant backup. Other online backup systems run constantly, taking up valuable CPU and RAM system resources. SOS in contrast only runs when you schedule it, keeping you safe without impacting your system performance. © SOS Online Backup. All right reserved. SOSDFG1
  5. 5. SOS DETAILED FEATURES GUIDE Award-Winning Universal Data Protection One Click File & Folder Sharing From inside the SOS My Account portal you can share your files with anyone with an email address. Never have a large attachment bounce again. Just share your already backed- up data with your friends and colleagues. Or if you are a home user – easily share photos or videos. Global Roaming Access Because your data is being backed up daily to the SOS Backup Server Grid - you can access your data anywhere in the world using just a web-browser. Never be without that critical file again. For more information or questions, email: info@sosonlinebackup.com or visit us at www.sosonlinebackup.com/features.htm © SOS Online Backup.
