How secure is online backup?

Data stored in an online backup, is actually much more secure than the data stored on your computer. Since online backup data is usually stored in encrypted form, but data on most computers is not encrypted, meaning it can be accessed by anybody that hacks into the computer. Hacking a computer is easier than hacking encryption.

All the leading online backup providers take security very seriously. The software they provide will encrypt and compress backup data before it is leaves your computer. The encrypted data is only accessible with a password. Modern encryption methods are very secure, and are they are relied upon daily by banks, militaries, and other high security dependant organisations. Most online banking services use 128bit encryption for transferring data. Most online backup software will encrypt your data at 128bits or greater before it even leaves your computer.
