    SOS Online vs PCIC – Results are in!

    SOS Online backup gets a thumbs up from Netwerk Guardian. After carefully vetting online backup solutions between PCIC, Mozy, and SOS Online, I’d have to say that it’s tie between SOS and PCIC, while the features are not shown here between the two subtle differences remain.

    PCIC is greatly known for their customer serivce and annual backup demonstration for clients. They also have great security practices in backing up your data. Encrypted and compressed at the source and then tunneled to their data center. SOS Online does the same with greater security at the destination. So if security is your thing SOS Online is out in front. They also have some features for end users for sharing files etc that may not be a concern for businesses. One thing they do have is file version history from day 1. So if you ever want to turn back the clock in time you can.

    Conclusion Feature rich SOS Online for those backup solutions that like the features of a lot of security (difference being very little for a decision maker), right click and share to someone, and access to the versions of your files from day 1. Businesses who like to have someone demonstrate the ability to bring back any file they have deleted once a year as regular testing and a longer track record than SOS Online or Mozy, than PCIC is the choice for you.

    Verizon messes up Backup Assistant on LG Env3

    Verizon, great company on the leading edge of a 3g network and services nation wide in the U.S. However, not all their applications work as described. Noted earlier this month Netwerk Guardian tested one of their data capable phones, the LG Env3 with Backup assistant. After 4 phone calls with 4 different Customer Support personnel and one tech support, they all failed to fix the problem of over writing data. What does this mean? This means that when you edit or add/erase a contact online and then select the sync action, well it would constantly overwrite what you spent time removing. What’s the point of syncing when it just will reverse what you spent doing? So the tech said we will cancel the subscription on our (Verizon) end. Results were the same. Netwerk Guardian actually had to delete the application from the phone.

    Questions you ask yourself is how safe is the data that you have on your phone?
    Would you believe that what you are trying to control with their help is really out of control?

    Verizon, just stick to telecommunication and leave the contact management to the end user.
