  • Manufacturer: Trend Micro
  • Pros: Absolute and automatically synchronised data backup, ease of use, access from anywhere, emphasis on security, fantastic value for money.
  • Cons: Erm, the first data backup takes a while, otherwise nothing to see here…
  • Summary: Once you appreciate that security is not just about data backup, but also data integrity and availability, then SafeSync starts to truly come alive. All your valuable data is always backed up, securely stored and made available whenever and wherever you need it. Where SafeSync really scores highly though is that it does this invisibly and quietly, without impacting on system resources while ensuring your files are always up to date and securely stored in the cloud. If ease of use, value for money and data security are of equal importance then SafeSync is the consumer data backup solution for you.
  • Overall Rating: 9 / 10
  • Price: $59.95 per year

DaniWeb has looked at Network Attached Storage in the shape of the myDitto server which offers excellent value in terms of both cost and capacity. DaniWeb has looked at a personal cloud device in the very pink format of PogoPlug which is great for anytime and anywhere sharing. DaniWeb has even looked at traditional backup software which dispenses with your own hardware and moves your backup into the cloud, as exampled by the Acronis Online Backup product.

Best of all worlds

However, all of these have their own particular drawbacks be it complexity of setup and usage or maximum data storage restrictions to name but a couple. Wouldn’t it be nice to have a totally secure data backup and sharing solution that ‘just worked’ without any hassle, didn’t cost the earth and imposed no limits on storage capacity? In other words something that encompassed all the good bits of traditional NAS and backup solutions, and then threw in the advantages of the cloud as well? Enter SafeSync, a rebranded and revitalized incarnation of what used to be known as Humyo until Trend Micro acquired it.
