Big names like DropBox changed the way we share files with others online. However, some users might be looking for a more custom solution that provides toughened-up security in order to feel more confident using such systems on a daily basis. For those users, TeamDrive for Mac proposes an alternative. The software felt a bit slower but is worth trying out.
During the installation of TeamDrive for Mac, you are able to register quickly right from the program. Once you are in, you are entitled a secure space of 2GB with a 2GB client-side limitation as a free user. The client-side limitation in paid versions is unlimited and there are also some additional features offered. The program's interface is decent but not great, and is maybe a little outdated for a syncing solution. The program felt intuitive enough to use right out of the box, which is mostly what you would expect from a syncing solution. It lacked the ability to share files from a contextual menu directly on the Finder though, which we would have liked to see. Most operations have to be performed from the program's interface so it felt a little less integrated with the system. The main advantage this program seems to have over its competitors is great security. For instance, your files are encrypted locally on your device then sent trough the network. DropBox seems to also encrypt with AES256 but only upon reception of the files on their end. They also take care of the symmetric password on their side, contrary to TeamDrive's approach that stores them locally.
TeamDrive for Mac offers high data security and is suitable for any user concerned about the security of file transfer services they are currently using.
