BitTorrent has been developing products that can lead to cash for the peer-to-peer communications and file sharing platform, with the secure Bleep messaging app and the Bundle content publishing service. The beta for the company’s file sharing service, Sync, has now ended with the release of Sync 2.0.

The company reports that all capabilities released in version 1.4 in August are still supported, which include secure sharing of folders over all platforms and the management of user access. The free product supports up to 10 folders with unlimited file sizes.

The company is offering a pro Tier  geared to workgroups, who need finer grained controls and more folders. Network accessible storage (NAS) devices can be linked along with other devices — laptops, smartphones, and so on — and now folder contents can be accessed on demand — so that  files can be picked and synced selectively. Pro is $39.99/user/year.

Sync 2.0 for Mac, Windows, Linux, Free BSD are live now (see GetSync.com). The mobile updates — iOS, Android, Windows Phone and Amazon Kindle — will be rolling out today.
