SOS Review

SOS online backup has a lot going for it with great features, customer support and ease of use but the most eye catching of them all has to be their prices. Business users can get an amazing value with the SOS business plan where every PC can be backed up for right around $25 a month. That is one of the lowest prices on the cloud backup market especially considering Unlimited PCs. SOS home users will marvel at the speed.

Features:

SOS online backup offer a very unique features that other companies simply do not. Instead of limiting their customers to only a few days of versioning, SOS chose to version everything. That means that every little change you make to a file will be saved indefinitely on the SOS server in case you need to correct a mistake or protect a file from changes. Another fairly unique feature that SOS offers is Social Media data protection. SOS customers can now protect the data on their Facebook accounts. Mac and PC users will be glad to know that SOS protects both types of systems as wells as Android OS smartphones and iOS devices.

Summary:

SOS online backup is fast, offers exactly what home users and business users are looking for and their pricing plans are affordable at the monthly and yearly rates.

Product Ideology:

SOS gives home users a few options in pricing and base that on the amount of storage space and the number of years. Also built into each home user account is SOS online backup service for up to 5 PCs. Considering that other cloud backup services charge for additional PCs, SOS starts saving their customers immediately.

Security:

SOS boasts the usual 99.999% uptime. SOS has been around since 2001 and they have proven themselves to be very reliable and trustworthy. They also offer top of the line security features to protect your files, plus they have received high praise by technology community leaders and periodicals.

Storage Space:

Business class users will be glad to know that they can get 1TB of space and unlimited PCs for their business at well under $2500. That is a great value for mid-sized to large companies. Smaller businesses can save a ton of cash by using 175GB and doing so for 1 year. That puts SOS Online Backup at one of the lowest business packages around.

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.

Customer Support:

Live support operators are there to assist new customers with any issues that may arise from installation of the software or any customer concerns. The SOS customer support staff is courteous and knowledgeable. SOS may also be reached on their social media accounts found on their website.

Five years of solid experience

I have used SOS Backup for five years across 7 Windows PCs. It has saved me many times. It has never, never failed. The infinite versioning is awesome. I am now on two macs and hope to see the same experience.

Don\'t use SOS anymore

This used to be a pretty good company but something has gone wrong with their management. Apparently there is little to no communications between departments. For example - regarding a client's account a) they tried to renew an $1800 3-year plan without prior approval (fortunately the card has expired) b) offered them to the chance to give me a competitive quote and never got a call back c) SOS continued to try and get the renewal charged on the credit card (I received a notice each time they tried) d) Finally I called my representative and I told him that I was canceling the account e) got a call six months later - they were still backing up the account for my client and wanted to get paid. Recently I have another client that is willing to renew if he can get a question cleared up. His total backup number of GBs doesn't agree with what SOS says is stored on their server. Have tried for 3 weeks to get a Tech to call - no luck. That client is going with another company.

STAY AWAY - THIEVES

Even two years after cancellation as per their own policy, they continue to charge my card every year. Fraudulent Business practices

AVOID SOS ONLNE BACKUP

SOS software is flawed. The engineers who designed SOS software did not have a clue what they were doing. If you read that SOS is a good product, you are reading a falsehood. SOS should be illegal. It will cause headaches. SOS will waste your time and money. SOS is a company that does not deliver the goods.
