Dropbox encryption service BoxCryptor boosts Android app
BoxCryptor, the client-side encryption tool for Dropbox, Box.net and other cloud storage services, has come a long way since its early, Windows-only incarnation.
These days, the tool works not only on Windows, Mac OS X and Linux, but also on Android and iOS. Right now, though, the Android version only works with Dropbox — but on Friday the team pushed out an update that they say readies it for other providers, including Box.net.
Dropbox already encrypts the files and folders stored on its platform, but only on the server side. While that should be enough for most, mistakes do happen and many people will want an extra layer of security, particularly if they’re storing sensitive data. Box.net goes a step further by giving its enterprise customers SSL encryption for file transfers — but again that doesn’t involve encryption on the client side.
