"Keeps your files secure."
SpiderOak for Mac is a lesser known cloud storage solution similar to Dropbox, but offering a full control application on the desktop. This solution is also truly cross-platform with Mac, PC and Linux versions (three Linux versions for both 32-bit and 64-bit), as well as Mobile apps for iOS and Android, with Windows Phone and Blackberry ones in development. Encryption is taken seriously with SpiderOak for Mac. Data is encrypted on the Mac, then transmitted. It's not readable by SpiderOak staff on the cloud servers and even the file names and folder names are obscured from prying eyes. A single password locks this all away for you. 2GB of storage is provided free to get you started. More is available for a monthly or yearly subscription. There are corporate solutions from the company too which is actually a good thing because it ensures this is one dot com company that will be there for years to come.
