Alternative to MEGA

MEGA is a cloud storage service offered by Mega Limited, a US-based company. For a very long time, MEGA 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, and its prices and usability are very reasonable.

X Cloud, on the other hand, was developed by Internxt, 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, Dropbox, Microsoft OneDrive), Mega and X Cloud 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 MEGA, however, X Cloud 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’s X Cloud and Sync, pCloud, MEGA, etc. Thanks to this unique architectural design, X Cloud praises to be the single most secure cloud storage service out there. Additionally, unlike MEGA, X Cloud comes with 24/7 support, seamless user experience, and many other perks.

Think smart. Make the switch.
