Touted for its abundance of useful features, file sharing and clear, friendly interface

LOS ANGELES, CA, Oct 28, 2010 –/– SOS Online Backup, the technology leader in online backup, announced today that it has been named Editors’ Choice by PC Magazine for the third time in a row since 2006, beating out online backup candidates such as Carbonite 4 and Mozy 2.0. SOS has been hailed for its flexibility to backup multiple PCs, external as well as network drives, file-sharing capabilities, and its robust cloud storage security. SOS Online Backup allows users the flexibility and power to create a personalized backup, and access them via the web or the SOS iPhone app or Blackberry app.

Using SOS, customers can backup any data, any time, to a variety of destinations. Users can back up important files to the SOS global storage grid at any defined time interval. With the new SoSimple file select feature, the SOS application can locate files that are commonly desired for backing up. Users can also engage LiveProtect(TM) to have SOS watch their files and provide continuous real-time data protection. Once a customer saves a file, SOS backs it up offsite automatically and keeps an unlimited history of versions that allows users to roll-back to any previous backup. Now, leading the way once again, SOS backs up and restores data from Blackberry® and iPhones ® with its new mobile applications.

“SOS Online Backup is thrilled to be named Editors’ Choice by PC Magazine for the third time in a row,” said Ken Shaw, Chief Executive Officer of SOS Online Backup. “This is a reaffirmation of SOS’s ability to deliver not only the best online backup technology, but also the most flexible and personalized online backup solution that secures, and protects our customers’ valuable data.
