Cubby replacement

LogMeIn has killed their Cubby Cloud sync product and folded it into LogMeIn Pro.

Anyone know of a similar Cloud sync/backup product that allows one to designate existing local folders for sync/backup rather than having to move files/folders to a special folder like Dropbox, Google Drive, et al?

Thanks

Noted, would have thought that you need non cloud store. In that case, I suggest you consider in descending order of preference.

SpiderOak
includes two-factor authentication, secure file sharing, and file versioning. Better yet, it only sets you back $7 per month for 30 GB, $12 per month for 1 TB, or $25 per month for 5 TB.
CrashPlan
strong security features such as end-to-end encryption, company-generated encryption keys, and two-factor authentication, with more practical services such as unlimited storage space and the ability to upload files from multiple devices.
...
CrashPlan doesn’t have any file sharing options. If you only used Cubby for personal storage, this won’t be a problem, but if you used it to share files with friends, family, and colleagues, you’d be best to pick another provider on this list.

IDrive
uses 256-bit AES end-to-end encryption, has the option to set two-factor authentication, and allows you to generate your own private password to decrypt your files.

IDrive’s low monthly fee of $3.71 is another big factor
While this does rise to $4.99 in your second year of subscribing, this is still on the cheaper end of the Cloud storage market.

MEGA
ability to set your private encryption key for your stored data, file sharing, and 128-bit AES end-to-end encryption. All of this comes starting at the low price of $5.35 per month for 500 GB of storage.
Tresorit
a zero-knowledge policy, a private encryption key, two-factor authentication, and end-to-end encryption – in addition to nice features such as a user-friendly interface.
At $12.50 per month it isn’t the cheapest option by far. In addition, it is aimed more at business users than personal users, which means that personal account options are limited.

Syncthing, which is opensource and free. It lets you synchronize your files across multiple devices. This means the creation, modification or deletion of files on one machine will automatically be replicated to your other devices.

Resilio Sync does direct sync and will keep folders synced between multiple platforms and operating systems.

Thanks, Btan, but these two programs only sync between devices without cloud storage involvement. We Need cloud storage as part of the equation both for secondary backup and flexibility for access to files by iPad as well as a PC.

Managing Security Policy in a Changing Environment

The enterprise network environment is evolving rapidly as companies extend their physical data centers to embrace cloud computing and software-defined networking. This new reality means that the challenge of managing the security policy is much more dynamic and complex.

Hello Mark

Some of the alternative products mentioned do not provide the same functionality as Cubby e.g. being able to specify existing folders to sync or backup so the user does not have to change their existing folder structure.

I have been a happy user of Cubby until the discontinued product so like you I have been searching for an alternative. Two possibilities are SugarSync and Tresorit. I have used Sugarsync in the past and found it pretty good.
However, I am now using a trial version of Tresorit and so far it seems excellent:

1) Tresorit do not require credit card details to get the trial version so that when the trial period expires you are simply put on the free limited package (1GB only I think). SygarSync require your card details and then automatically charge you when the trial period ends.

2) Security is excellent. Moreover the servers are in Europe so not subject to US laws.

3) The user interface is friendly. Also unlike virtually any other similar service there is a mobile app for Windows phones.

So far I would strongly recommend it.

Thank you very much for the additional info. Only another Cubby could truly understand the issues!
