Security firm Bitdefender is the latest provider to get into the cloud computing storage market with a service that lets PC and Android users store files remotely and sync them between devices.
Available now, Bitdefender Safebox offers three tiers of service, with a free plan providing 2GB of online storage.
Users requiring more storage capacity than this can opt for a 30GB service for £24.99 per year, or a 60GB service for £54.99 per year.
Like Dropbox, Bitdefender's product is based around an application that runs on the PC or mobile device, which keeps files and folders synchronised with those stored in the cloud, while users can also access their files via a browser.
"With just a click, users can sync, store and share documents with any number of friends," said Bitdefender's product manager Cosmin Sandu.
However, Bitdefender added that Safebox allows you to backup and sync an unlimited number of folders, no matter where they are stored on the PC hard drive.
Safebox also guards the privacy of user content by encrypting files when they are uploaded, and maintains a backup copy.
While Safebox currently supports Windows PCs and Android devices, this will be extended with apps for the iPad and iPhone in future, the firm said.
