Other web-based file sharing services send private files to the cloud in their raw, unlocked format- portraying private data as safe when it arrives in their cloud. The real risk is that data is decipherable if hacked while in transit and also while stored in their cloud. Those vendors have ongoing access to the clear-text of users' data. FileLocker doesn't.
FileLocker employs end-to-end encryption from desktop to cloud to keep information completely safe if the users enable the option. Files are encrypted before leaving a device with a personal passphrase known only to the user, transferred over a 256-bit SSL connection, encrypted again and then stored in the FileLocker cloud.
Also, files are kept for an unlimited amount of time and each-and-every past version can be restored (unlimited versioning).
FileLocker also gives companies the option of running FileLocker in their own, internal network, using a company's existing hardware and infrastructure. FileLocker can be hosted behind a company's private firewall, still utilizing the software's end-to-end encryption between client and cloud.
FileLocker is free for five people and up to 25 GBs of cloud storage (5 GB per person). For more than five people FileLocker is just $5/month per person. At this price FileLocker comes with completely unlimited cloud storage, the secure FileLocker Desktop Sync app, the FileLocker Mobile application for iPhone & Android, as well as powerful administrative controls and reporting.
