The US-based OneBackup has launched a new online data backup service, which protects personal computer data using 448-bit, ‘bank-grade’ encryption.
OneBackup said that the application will update and secure newly created files when a PC connects to the internet. It also uses ‘bank-grade’ encryption to protect data before it leaves the user’s PC, leaving the only key to access stored data with the original owner.
The company claims that the application has been verified spy-ware and virus-free by Microsoft’s Authenticode. It offers a free 14-day trial and a flat monthly rate thereafter irrespective of the amount of data stored.
OneBackup also plans to launch a Mac compatible version.
A similar service is also provided by OneBackup’s competitor NovaStor through its NovaNet-Web-online data storage and backup software for Windows. It offers backup and restore facility through an internet connection. Another competitor Data Deposit Box offers online backups for a monthly bill of $2 per gigabyte per month.
