Copernic customers who take advantage of this service will be protected against file loss or deletion due to harmful Internet attacks. This announcement is the result of a partnership with SOS Online Backup, an industry leader in online backup technology.
Copernic Online Backup provides customers with the latest in online, offsite backup technology and will allow users to properly protect their data quickly, easily, and inexpensively. Its innovative technology backs up files to a global network of datacenters.

About SOS Online Backup
SOS Online Backup has developed a revolutionary technology for secure, web-based offsite backup. The software was developed when dial up was the main source of Internet access; therefore the technology only calculates and sends file changes since the previous backup. This process dramatically reduces the time spent backing up customer files and allows the user to store an unlimited number of versions for each file. In addition, the software allows users to select a personalized schedule for backing up files. Users can select from updating files monthly, weekly, daily or maintaining continuous file protection.
In 2006 PC Magazine, PC Authority, PC Pro, PC User and Tucows gave SOS their editor's choice awards and recommendations. With 6 global data facilities worldwide and offices on 4 continents, SOS is active 24 hours a day.
