Something on the PR wire caught my eye this morning — Tel Aviv startup BeInSync scored a round of funding from a trio of European and Israeli VCs. In a rare case of business deal news leading me to a cool new application, it turns out BeInSync offers software to synchronize files across a number of systems using secure, peer-to-peer file transfers without a central server.
Which is just an elegant solution to the problem of maintaining a central set of personal and professional work across a team of people with multiple machines. Sadly, it only supports Windows, so multi-platform sharing is out the window. Version 2.5 was just released, and it’s a free download, so there’s no reason not to check it out.
