Alternative to Boxcryptor

Boxcryptor is a very interesting tool that allows anyone to client-side end-to-end encrypt any files uploaded to traditional, less secure cloud storage services (Dropbox, OneDrive, iCloud etc). You can install it on your computer and it will encrypt the files before these get uploaded. This will basically transform any cloud service (eg Dropbox) into a more secure service like that offered by Tresorit, Sync or pCloud. While it’s great, here we want to showcase a better alternative to using Boxcryptor.

Internxt’s X Cloud is a highly secure cloud storage service, that shards files and client-side end-to-end encrypts these. The main advantage of using X Cloud instead of using Dropbox + Boxcryptor is the ease of use. Unlike Dropbox & co, X Cloud already has its encryption mechanism built-in, without the need for third-party apps like Boxcryptor. But that’s not only it.

Since X Cloud is decentralized, it’s also more eco-friendly and resilient to a centralized service like that offered by Dropbox & co. On X Cloud, encrypted shards of data are spread all over the world in a one-of-a-kind infrastructure, leveraging unused resources from users running our X Core program -which makes it much more energy-efficient and stronger against catastrophic events. Additionally, the fact that files are fragmented and a machine never hosts a whole file, also makes it more secure against hacking attacks.

Make the switch to a more convenient, innovative, eco-friendly and secure cloud service than your traditional cloud service + Boxcryptor. Make the switch to X Cloud.
