Siber Systems Introduces GoodSync 9, Featuring GoodSync Connect
File Synchronisation Software Moves beyond Cloud for Fast, Affordable and Secure Alternative
Siber Systems, Inc., a leading developer of software productivity tools for consumers and businesses, today announced the release of GoodSync 9. This latest version of the popular backup and synchronisation product allows users to directly connect two or more computers and synchronise them without having to access cloud-based services. This enables faster downloads, secure file transfers and eliminates online data storage costs.
Siber Systems developed GoodSync 9 to provide an affordable alternative to cloud-based services. Cloud-based products have generated a lot of interest recently but they have also been the focus of numerous user complaints due to several drawbacks. Users are concerned about the security of their files stored in a cloud environment and are irritated by slow upload and download speeds, especially when transferring large files or groups of files. Some users are also put-off by the prohibitive costs of storing data online.
GoodSync 9 solves each of these issues by connecting and synchronising computers directly, without requiring online storage and bypassing the cloud altogether. After installing GoodSync 9 and setting up a unique User ID and password, users can connect multiple computers and devices through their GoodSync Connect account. This allows users to share documents and files securely and affordably.
Bill Carey, Vice President of Marketing for Siber Systems says, “GoodSync 9 is a game-changer. Cloud-based services are really popular right now, but are riddled with performance issues such as slow download and upload speeds, spiralling costs and lax security. With GoodSync 9, we have created a better alternative to cloud-based services and can deliver a superior user experience.”
Synchronise Files Securely
With GoodSync 9, data is transmitted via Secure Socket Layer (SSL) technology over an encrypted connection, which safeguards vital information. User data does not transfer through GoodSync Connect and is not saved within the system.
GoodSync 8 was widely praised for its speed, but GoodSync 9 significantly improves on an already fast synchronisation service. GoodSync 9 allows files to be synchronised at the speed of the synching computers’ data connection, eliminating the need to wait for upload and download into and out of the cloud. Also, with a new ‘block-level synchronisation’ capability, GoodSync 9 synchronises only the changed portion of individual files rather than the entire file, thereby reducing the overall time required to synchronise files.
Affordable, Limitless Storage
Users can sync unlimited data with GoodSync Connect – the only possible limits are imposed by the user’s personal storage capacity. GoodSync 9 users are not subject to storage or additional licensing costs since their data does not reside in the cloud.
Advanced Features for Cloud Users
Those who already use cloud-based services can also take advantage of GoodSync 9’s advanced features. The new release easily syncs with external cloud-based services such as Amazon S3, Google Docs, Windows Azure, Amazon Cloud Drive and SkyDrive. GoodSync 9 provides a one-stop sync hub and allows cloud users to quickly and conveniently sync with popular services using a single software package.
Also included with GoodSync 9 is GoodSync Explorer, which is a combination of the standard Windows Explorer software and a rich-featured FTP product. GoodSync Explorer enables users to view and upload or download files between computers, allowing them to publish and maintain websites, transfer images, documents, movie and music files, as well as share files with friends and co-workers.
GoodSync 9 offers an inexpensive, secure and fast solution for backup and data synchronisation. To trial the software for free go to http://www.goodsync.com/download. Professional licenses are available at www.goodsync.com and are affordably priced at £19.95 for the first license and only £7.95 for an additional license.
