MENLO PARK, Calif., Feb. 14, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- SurDoc today released a visual overview of the various types of insurance most Americans need. The infographic includes a brief explanation of the most common types of insurance such as health, dental, life, and vehicle, as well as lesser-known types of protection, such as disability and renter's insurance and online computer backup.
Hard-to-find overview of costs and coverage
Included in the overview are the average yearly costs of insurance for a family of 4 in the U.S., which ranges from as little as $300 a year for vision insurance, to as much as $19,882 per year for comprehensive health coverage without an employer-sponsored plan. It also lists the percentages of Americans who have each type of insurance.
The infographic highlights online 'cloud' file backup as protection everyone needs.
"Online backup is like 'digital insurance'," says Alex Wang, CEO of SurDoc, a technology leader in online backup and cloud storage.
File loss is a common occurrence, and can result from viruses, electrical outages, user errors, hard drive crashes, or when the entire device itself is compromised through damage, theft or loss. Lost files can mean thousands of dollars of lost work hours and digital assets, as well as the loss of critical personal and business data. Many don't realize that hardware backups, such as external hard drives and USBs, can fail. Also, onsite backups offer no protection in the event of a burglary or natural disaster. Automatic, continuous online backup is the best defense against the loss of important files, expensive music collections, and priceless photos and videos. However, only 80% of Americans regularly back up their computers online.

"This Valentine's Day while you're sharing chocolates with your loved ones, be sure to ask if they have all the plans they need. Don't let the people you care about go unprotected," advises Wang. "They'll love you even more when they need it."
