Free encryption solutions for cloud storage

#1 Post by Midas » Wed Dec 10, 2014 6:43 am

Gizmo's Freeware recently posted an interesting revamped review and Tresorit (http://tresorit.com/) comes out on top:
The free Tresorit (registration required) windows client can be found at Softpedia:

IMHO, CryptSync (viewtopic.php?t=21147) ought to be mentioned here, too...

For individual files (as opposed to containers), I prefer AxCrypt myself:

Supporting PortableFreeware since...wait, what year is it again?

Re: CryptSync - cloud storage encryption

Old thread update: Looks like a company came up with a cloud service sync go-between that does encryption and claims portability.

I'm less than thrilled with the way it doesn't encrypt file names, but it does work between two devices and certainly a dramatically more secure option than standard cloud service options. At least where I live you can unlock basically everything for 50/yr: https://www.boxcryptor.com/en/pricing/

Claims portable versions for Windows, Mac, and Linux, which is fairly unique. https://www.boxcryptor.com/en/download/ ... m=portable

Status: Untested

Just like to add one more tool for cloud storage encryption: https://nordlocker.com/download/
Haven't tried it by myself yet, but received an email from my vpn provider that they have released a new product.

Good suggestion - that looks pretty solid and Nord has a good reputation. The PCMag review finds some issues around lacking 2FA and file wipe, but those are far from deal breakers. 5 gigs for free with sharing functions is nothing to sneeze at.

I couldn't tell if there were any file size limits. I could do a lot if it was a single 5 gig VeraCrypt file.
