Dropbox is unquestionably one of Lifehacker’s favourite file syncing solutions, and ‘Dropbox-like’ is often used as a shorthand description for any kind of solution for ensuring easy file access and backup across multiple devices. However, despite Dropbox’s own push into business markets, IT departments aren’t always happy with how Dropbox meshes into company security policies. That’s a gap that EMC-owned Syncplicity is hoping to fill.
There are a lots of online syncing and storage services, but not all of them locally encrypt your data for higher security. Just out of limited beta, Tresorit is a new Dropbox alternative with client-side encryption. The company offers 5GB of free space, but for a limited time Lifehacker readers can grab 50GB free for life.
With so many services like iCloud and Dropbox getting hacked these days, it’s no surprise that more people want to pull their data off the cloud. Instead of missing out on those great syncing features though, you can create your own cloud storage service that you control with a service called ownCloud. With it, you’ll get syncing files, notes, calendars and more. The best part: it only takes about five minutes to set up.
We’ve seen no shortage of syncing note apps for iOS, but Write keeps with the simplicity we like while packing in an enormous feature set. It also includes a free Mac app to quickly add notes from your menubar.
