Online storage services seem like a must, especially if you’ve ever suffered from a local hard drive failure. These services will help you back up a number of items from your computers, so that you can access them from anywhere and in the event that a computer fails, you’ll have an offsite backup.

Tresorit is a new service, and it works for Windows only for now. Mac, Android and iOS apps are coming soon. The differences between Tresorit and some other services is that they locally encrypt all of your data. The program will encrypt your files and folders with AES-256 before they’re uploaded to the cloud – protecting them from prying eyes in the event of a network compromise.

Tresorit just came out of a limited beta, and you can now get 5GB of free storage space. If you’re wondering at how secure this service will be, starting April 15th, The company is inviting the world’s hackers to try and break its encryption and win $10,000. The service doesn’t yet have web-based access, so you’ll need to have the software installed in order to use it.

    What’s the advantage over local encryption versus secure transfer and server based encryption?

      Having transferred your data (as secure it can get) to any company encryting your data afterwards – will let your data visible to the company’s staff.
      Transferring already encrypted data – ok, u got the point.
