Are you reliant on Box or DropBox for your cloud storage needs? But, finding it a hassle to encrypt files yourself wherever, whenever for those files that are more sensitive? Well, that is what Tresorit aims to fix, and now, they have officially jumped onto the BlackBerry 10 wagon.
What is Tresorit?
Tresorit is an online cloud storage service based in Switzerland and Hungary that emphasizes enhanced security and data encryption. To give the security that they promised, however, Tresorit’s service is currently only accessible through a client software. Available for Windows, Mac, Android, Windows Phone 8, iOS and now BlackBerry, without the application, it would be impossible to access the data.
Your data is encrypted client-side (on your device) with AES-256 before it is uploaded. The files are also secured by HMAC message authentication codes applied on SHA-512 hashes.
If you have not used the service before, signing up now will give you 5GB of secure storage for free, with up to 16GB if you refer your friend’s to this. Check out their plans here.
One caveat here, however, is that this is NOT a native application, but rather an android port unfortunately.
On the other hand, because BlackBerry has been tightly integrating the use of Android application of late, most of the features do work on the application. From registering and signing up of a new account to uploading and creating of a new folder, the application works smoothly, most of the time, though there are some freezing along the way.
Weirdly, however, is that the application whilst is available for BlackBerry Q10, it is not available for the BlackBerry Q5.
Nonetheless, if you want a easy, safe cloud storage, do check this one out!
