SpiderOak provides online backup and sync tools

SpiderOak backup software

SpiderOak has announced that its new online backup service is now available. The system is claimed to utilize different technology than other common backup services, such as Dropbox, and provides a single tool that consolidates backup, synchronization, sharing, remote access and storage functions. Instead of requiring users to put files into a folder to be replicated on other devices, SpiderOak enables groups of folders to be uploaded from any networked computers or external drives without modifying the folder structure. The backup also boasts file protection for synced or non-synced content, eliminating unnecessary transfers by keeping backup and sync functions separate.

SpiderOak can retain previous versions of a file when it is updated, while deleted files are sent to the 'Recycle' bin. The software does not limit file sizes for uploads, allowing users to include large photographs and graphic presentations. All data is encrypted before communication, with security measures preventing password storage or unauthorized viewing of file names. The user's password generates an encryption key, making files inaccessible to the company.

SpiderOak is compatible with Mac, Windows and Linux operating systems and can be downloaded from the company's website. Customers can purchase 100GB increments of storage for $100 per year.
