I haven’t mentioned sync.com in a while and was prompted by an endorsement from Steve Gibson (of Security Now! podcast) who said:
I know that there are many choices. But I am still a fan of SYNC.COM, who I haven’t talkedhttps://twit.tv/shows/security-now/episodes/896
about for a while. I’ve set SYNC up to completely manage the file synchronization between my
two locations and it has never failed me. It’s completely TNO end-to-end encrypted, it has apps
for iOS and Android, presents a “Sync” directory under Windows and Mac, and allows for
managed public link sharing. So has all of the features you would expect from a mature, secure,
encrypted, commercial cloud storage provider.
I know that many of you will use Office 365, Google Workspace or similar and will rely on the provider to manage your file access, security and backups.
However, for those who want more control, me included, sync.com offers a cost effective and highly secure (including TNO or Trust No One) alternative. It is easily integrated with your local file structures, facilitates sharing and version control, and is the type of ‘use and forget’ solution I like. Moreover, it helps to implement one of the NCSC’s key recommendations to mitigate the risks of ransomware i.e. have an offline backup.
If you would like me to explain any of the jargon, or how we use sync.com, you are welcome to get in touch in any of the normal ways, use https://zorva.info/about-us/contact-us/ or by booking a 20-minute insight call at https://zorva.info/free-insight-call/ (for TinoPai members, but it’s free to join, and you get lots of other benefits including free live and on-demand webinars).
