Get 50GB of Free, Encrypted Online Storage from Tresorit
April 12, 2013 : Posted in: #FreeStuff
NOTE: This offer is good until May 20. Tresorit currently only work for Windows (Mac, Android, iOS coming soon).
There are a ton of online syncing and storage services, but not all of them locally encrypt your data for higher security. Tresorit is a new Dropbox alternative with client-side encryption. The company offers 5GB of free space, but for a limited time you can grab 50GB free for life!!
Tresorit’s biggest selling point is the strong security. Your files and folders are encrypted before they’re uploaded to the cloud. To get technical about it:
Files are encrypted with AES-256 before being uploaded to the cloud. Additional security is provided before upload by HMAC message authentication codes applied on SHA-512 hashes. Encrypted files are uploaded to the cloud using TLS-protected channels.
On the downside, there’s no web-based access for your files, people you share folders with will also need the software installed, and it takes a few seconds longer for your synced files to appear on another computer (probably because of the encryption that has to happen first).
If you want to try it out, you’ll need to register via this link to get the 50 gigs free: Tresorit
