BeInSync: P2P Data Synching


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.

Collanos is also a “sync company”. We take a different approach though: Secure shared invitation-only P2P team spaces, where teams can mix and match files/documents, Tasks, Notes, Group Discussions, and more. Available today on Win, Linux, and Mac.

Foldershare does the same thing, and is cleaner to use. FS was bought by Microsoft a while back, and is free. One of the nicer aspects of FS is the ability to search across all your PCs via the web interface.
