BackJack Online Backup Service receives Update
Synectics Business Solutions, Inc. released a new software version of BackJack to complement its BackJack Online Backup Service. According to Synectics:

BackJack is a Macintosh-based online backup solution which enables users to get their critical Mac files offsite - securely, cost effectively and conveniently. New features to enhance the user's experience include improved online backup and recovery efficiency, a new AutoLauncher, standard and advanced 128-bit CAST encryption, file filtering and multiple attempt dialup and file backup.

Using the most sophisticated 128-bit CAST encryption technology available, BackJack securely transfers and stores data via the Internet. Backup operations are completely automated to execute at the most convenient times and provide efficient use of computer operations. Archiving and revision options are available to accommodate the need for historical data. Free recovery of lost data is available 24 hours a day, 7 days a week should an unfortunate disaster occur.

BackJack is a subscription-based service with monthly rates started at US$17.50 for 40MB of post-compression storage. They offer a Free 30-Day Trial as well.

The Mac Observer Spin: With Internet connections getting faster and faster, services like this will really make all of our lives easier. Subscription-based services give users the advantage of always having the latest software version provided for them, and tech. support is generally more responsive.
