The new version supports long file path names and international characters
Cloud storage and backup service firm Symform has upgraded its Cloud Storage Network to improve the performance, security capabilities of its peer-to-peer backup model.
Symform said the new version speeds up the data upload times for large data sets, offers more options for privacy control and also supports long file path names and international characters.
Symform has made major updates to its synchronisation engine and device software, resulting in more efficient and faster data backup to the cloud from Windows, Mac and QNAP NAS devices.
The company has also updated its API (application programming interface) that enables Web-based communication between devices and Symform Cloud Control, setting the foundation for additional API and integration work.
Symform new version offers folder-based global de-duplication of files to solve privacy problems that vex other cloud storage and backup vendors. These features ensure that an attacker cannot infer whether a target has stored a particular file in the cloud.
It also rovides the capability to handle long file path names and international characters in folder names to make it easy for users to have consistent naming schemas when backing up all folders into the Symform cloud.
