There are plenty of cloud storage platforms around. Why does the world need iBox?
We created iBox for ourselves, and we had a very specific need: store sensitive files securely without any risk of a hack. Anyone can get hacked, this is true. However, cloud computing companies have a big target on them. What if there was a way to turn a Windows computer with a huge external hard drive into our own ‘personal cloud’? That was the challenge. iBox was our solution. Once we built it, we published it on the App Store and on Google Play, since we knew that we weren’t the only ones with this problem.
So how exactly is iBox different?
iBox enables a direct connection to your computer – without a third party intermediary. No syncing issues – ever. No monthly storage fees for “additional space” – ever. The only limitation to hard drive space is the actual size of your hard drive.
Can a customer use iBox and also use other applications that provide remote file access?
Yes. The use of one does not preclude the use of any others.
Do iBox users have to do anything special on their computers in order to connect?
Yes! Users must download and install the iBox Control Panel (here). After installing the application on the user’s computer(s) and going through the configuration setup process, the only thing the user has to do is leave the desired computer on and connected to the Internet.
