Sync is an online cloud storage service based in North America that emphasizes enhanced security and data encryption. North America (unlike Europe, where companies like Tresorit, pCloud or Internxt are based), is known for its aggressive privacy violations.

For a very long time, Sync has praised to be the single most secure alternative to all these traditional cloud storage services. It features zero-knowledge encryption, and it is indeed extremely secure. It features mobile, web, and desktop apps (although no Linux client), and its prices and usability are very reasonable. Sync, however, isn’t open-source, so a big trust layer is required.

Internxt Drive, on the other hand, was developed by Internxt (Europe), with the vision of creating the first cloud storage service which presented the user with total control, security, and privacy of their files.

Unlike traditional cloud storage providers (eg Google Drive, Box, Dropbox, Microsoft OneDrive), Sync and Internxt Drive encrypt your files not only in transit but also at rest, and only you have the decryption key of these. That means that your files are encrypted when stored and that only you can access your files.

Unlike Sync, however, Drive makes use of file distribution, meaning that files are fragmented, shards are encrypted, and no machine ever holds a whole file. This is a huge differentiator between Internxt Drive and Sync, pCloud, MEGA, etc. Thanks to this unique architectural design, Internxt Drive praises to be the single most secure cloud storage service out there.

Additionally, unlike Sync, Internxt Drive comes with 24/7 support, seamless user experience, and many other perks. Internxt offers a full privacy hub, by offering Internxt Drive, Photos and Send.

Think smart. Make the switch.

PS. Did you know that by using Internxt Drive you’re also having a positive impact on the planet?
