Tresorit launches secure cloud storage app to BlackBerry 10, it’s basically a Dropbox rival but targets to be more secure, along the lines of SpiderOak. The app has now available in BlackBerry World and is accessible to all who wish to sign up for an account to use this services.
As if you just going to start with these kind of services, you get free storage on the free tier beginning with 5 GB, which can rise up with referrals, which is nothing just a promotion strategy to get more crowd on the services. If that much data storage is not enough for you, then go for Pro accounts that starts at $7.99 for 20 GB and go all the way up to 1000 GB (1 TB) for $129.99.
- Tresorit keeps your data encrypted in the cloud – Your confidential files are encrypted using the most advanced encryption methods. No one, not even Tresorit administrators, hold your decryption key. A single file can only be accessed by you and those whom you shared it with.
- Not all cloud solutions are created equal – Dropbox, Box and others only encrypt your data during transferring, but they decrypt it on their servers in the cloud. That way, they have access to your confidential files and can see what’s inside them.
- Compliance by design – As Tresorit never gets data in unencrypted form and it’s designed to address modern day security threats, Tresorit technology and data centers provides you the level of trust required of ever more rigorous compliance standards.
- Send encrypted files – Share end-to-end encrypted folders to provide secure and automatic access. Use encrypted links to send files securely to friends, colleagues and clients.
- Control – Protect your files by setting easy to manage access levels – manager, editor, reader. Track revisions, devices, and user activity. Change or revoke privileges at any time.
I can’t tell anything on the subscription validity of their programs about being more secure vs. the other features out there, but they started a bounty of $50,000 and called leading Universities and hackers to break the security hole of the service. No one has succeeded as of now despite attempts by over 900 ‘hackers’ across the world over the course of 498 days including folks from Stanford, MIT, Harvard and Caltech.
