I'm looking for competitors to Drop box. Either better ones or cheaper (free?) competitors.

If you mean better, as in supports encryption then check out

"Hackers, scammers, careless or malicious employees, and government agencies can all compromise your confidential files. Tresorit keeps unauthorized eyes off your files. To prove this, we offered a bounty to any hacker who cracks our security. Experts from MIT, Stanford and 240 other institutions tried. No one succeeded."

Tresorit sounds very intriguing and certainly has a nice feature set.    But $1/day for a personal plan??    Seems a bit steep, although the 1TB storage limit is indeed generous.    1TB on Google Drive or DropBox is $9.99/month, compared to $30/month for Tresorit Solo.

OneDrive is even less expensive => $6.99/month for 1TB for a single user; or $9.99/month for 1TB each for up to 5 users INCLUDING Office 365 with either plan.

and all the other platforms are insecure!

what you pay is what you get, if you want to trust your personal data to hackers!

I know we don't!

All our data in the Cloud is with Tresorit.

"... and all the other platforms are insecure!

==>  As I understand it the key difference is the client side encryption.   Virtually all of the cloud storage sites maintain the data in encrypted form on their servers; and use an encrypted data link when sending/receiving data from their subscribers.

Granted, Tresorit makes it much simpler to ensure fully encrypted data at all points; but I wouldn't go so far as to say all the other platforms are "insecure" ... they just don't provide a client-side encryption solution.

Tresorit not been hacked yet!

I know where I would rather store my personal and business data, and so would my colleagues, in Dept of Computer Science!

Personal choice, what you pay is what you get!

Nothing is free in life, someone is paying for it!

You deserve ‘straight talk’ from your cloud provider about your risk, your costs, security, uptime and the processes that are in place to protect your mission-critical applications.
Let’s face it: one of the reasons your organization chose a SaaS solution (whether Microsoft Dynamics 365, Netsuite or SAP) is that it is subscription-based. The upkeep is done. Or so you think.
