Mozy excels in data storage and has useful features such as scheduled and automated backups, mobile access, file versioning and lately file syncing. It is still trying to come up file sharing features. All backup tools are present in all its plans.
LiveDrive’s best features include limitless storage space, compatibility with a wide array of devices and user-friendly interface. Installation is quick and easy. It also has automatic back-ups and bandwidth control. However, only its Briefcase and Prosuit plans have file sharing and syncing features.
Mozy prides itself with excellent security. It utilizes both a 128 SSL encryption for internet transfers and a 448 Blowfish encryption when storing data. All data is kept highly guarded in Mozy Data Centers located both in Europe and USA.
LiveDrive’s security includes a 256 SSL encryption during transfers. Issues about security have surfaced since no additional encryption is done once data is inside the LiveDrive servers, which are primarily located in London.
Mozy gives its customers a searchable knowledgebase, FAQ’s and online tutorials easily accessible from its website. Paying customers have the privilege of live chat services. Email support is available for all its clients. It doesn’t have any phone services
LiveDrive also provides a knowledgebase and FAQ’s. Email support is available 24/7. It doesn’t have any phone or live chat support teams.
Mozy with its decent backup features and tight security is a good option for people who mainly want a place to keep its data safe.
LiveDrive also provides great storage features with its Backup plan. However it costs more and its security isn’t as tight as Mozy’s. It would be great if LiveDrive allowed both backup and sharing features in its more affordable plans. Bit since it doesn’t, Mozy wins this match up.
