Certificate Authority and Internet security provider Comodo has updated its backup and cloud storage solutions to make it easier for users to synchronize, upload, download and share files and folders. These improvements can be seen across its CCloud, Comodo Backup, and CDrive applications.
Comodo’s cloud storage app, CCloud, has doubled its storage space to 10GB with an additional 10GB for referrals. CCloud also now gives businesses users the ability to configure sub-account groups and control the level of access to files and folders by groups or users, ensuring sensitive data is only available to those with clearance.
CCloud paid accounts range from $7.99 per month with 100GB of storage to $34.99 per month for 500GB.
Comodo Backup finds and categorizes (music, videos, photos, mail, etc.) all files so users can start backing up as much as 10GB of data while keeping files organized. Comodo Backup now offers deduplication for image backups, helping improve backup speed and consume fewer resources.
Comodo’s CDrive service, which allows a user to access cloud storage via a virtual drive on their PC as if it were a local drive or partition, has had significant speed increases when it comes to browsing, uploading, and downloading.
Competition in the file storage space is heating up as cloud storage providers like Box and Dropbox are seeking out greater funding and partnerships to expand. There are also a number of new entrants into the file synchronization service that use peer-2-peer technology used in torrent applications such as BitTorrent Sync and Mega which now have users numbering in the millions.
Facing this competition, Comodo seems to be adding functionality to its cloud storage services while still maintaining a clear focus on security – something for which the company is well known.
