Today BitTorrent is already going head to head with other established syncing applications. Based on P2P technology, BitTorrent Sync comes as a fast, secure, and easy app allowing users to sync their files and transfer large files between different devices.
At the start of 2013, the company introduced a demonstrative version of Sync – with technology evolving rapidly, the need for a piece of software able to keep various gadgets synced became very important. To solve this problem, the developers created Sync, a friendly app that can be used for file-syncing, remote backup and even transferring large files between various devices. Since the beta version was announced, about 20.000 people joined in to help the app get better, transferring over 200 terabytes of data.
As you know, everything coming from BitTorrent is based on P2P technology, and this advantage is not to be taken lightly. Transferring files at maximum speeds is priority, and Sync does exactly that. In addition, all file transfers are encrypted, meeting all privacy concerns.
The company confirms that all the traffic is encrypted with a private key derived from the shared secret. It means that the files can only be viewed and received by people with whom you share the private secret. Then, to improve security even further, you can set the private key to expire after one day. In this case, even if someone manages to get the secret, new devices can’t be added.
Finally, BitTorrent Sync is specifically designed to work with large files, allowing users to sync original, high quality, uncompressed files. If you are still undecided whether to choose Sync over Dropbox or Google Drive or Microsoft Skydrive, take into account that most of these services offer limited storage capabilities, while Sync is driven to turn the impossible into possible. For example, Dropbox and similar services rely on the cloud, but BitTorrent’s app approaches file-syncing from a completely different angle, by letting you transfer the files from point A to point B without the cloud. In other words, your network speed is the only limit.
BitTorrent’s developing team claimed that they were really excited about opening up the application. Indeed, the feedback has been universally positive – people in the closed Alpha have already synced over 200 terabytes since the start of the program.
