Online Backup Security
One of the first questions people ask me when I tell them about online backup is: is it really secure? My answer is a resounding yes! But… it really depends on the online backup service. There are very secure online backup services such as Spideroak, Mozy and SOS online backup. And there are less secure online backup services but all the major providers have a decent level of security. However, you should always think twice when storing very sensitive data. Because in the end, you don’t have control over the data that you send to the provider. It is a matter of trust.
I’ve already written an extensive article on online backup security. However, it is a little technical, so feel free to skip it or read it here.
If you are looking for online backup reviews, feel free to read the articles. I’ve reviewed more than 30 service providers.
