Collaboration is big news and big business, obviously. Logically then we see new services and tools arising in the Linux-specific market. Tresorit is a file sharing service that is now available for all Linux users across ‘Linux supported platforms’.
The software itself is described as a secure file sharing service offering zero-knowledge (files are encrypted on the user’s device before being uploaded to the servers) end-to-end encryption with strong ‘file control’ features.
Platforms supported now include: Windows, Apple OS X and iOS, Linux, Android, Windows Phone and, for nostalgia fans… BlackBerry.
All major Linux distros
Tresorit for Linux supports all major Linux distributions such as Ubuntu, Debian, Arch, Fedora, Gentoo, Mint, SUSE and CentOS.
Gyorgy Szilagyi, chief product officer at Tresorit explains the software’s features, “Admin and control features enable risk-free collaboration of teams and users can control the file sharing process from the beginning to the very end. Tresorit allows for managing file permission levels with DRM (digital rights management on file level), granting and revoking access anytime, password protecting files and keeping track of team activity and file versions.”
With Tresorit, users can quickly search files and access all ‘tresors’ and files in the browser without having to sync them (Tresorit Drive). For their convenience, they can also edit files directly in the cloud.
Plus, there’s a new pending tab that helps team administrators keep track of pending invites and unassigned user licenses as well.
