RansomFree ~ Added: 14 Mar 2017 02:45

With the emergence of ransomware, many companies have created products designed to help detect, prevent and minimize the impact of these threats.

CyberReason offers one of the most effective and free solutions to this problem. By creating "honeypots" of directories filled with files that ransomware programs typically target, these programs monitor any attempts to encrypt the files and alert the user of the problem, hopefully before any real damage is done.

Zoho Docs ~ Added: 11 Sep 2014 03:20

Zoho offers, among other things, 5GBs of cloud storage for your webmail and documents.

There are now several free Office compatible options available for Android. Few of them however, offer online access. Of course there is Google docs, but many people are becoming much more anxious about the amount of information and power we have granted both Microsoft and Google in our lives. For those who prefer an alternative therefore, Zoho is an excellent option.

Zoho Docs is an Office compatible word processor, spreadsheet and presentation suite. However, it's much more than that. With it's Zoho Writer app, it also offers synchronization with Zoho Docs online storage, Google Drive, Dropbox and OneDrive. They use two-factor authentication using the SMS and Google Authenticator and if you so wish, you could still connect it to your Facebook and/or Google accounts. Although, that would likely defeat the purpose of getting away from those services.

There's more, too. They offer a free and powerful webmail service, calendar, notebook, wiki, chat, groups, live meetings and much more. Their main focus is to provide a one stop shop for businesses, but by offering the free components to the public, they get to expand their exposure. From what I've seen so far, it's a very impressive set of offerings. They even have a Zoho Mail app with the integrated calendar service.


KeePass2Android Password Safe ~ Added: 21 Dec 2013 03:49

I use KeePass to maintain my password database. I store the key file locally and my database on a private FTP location. At work and home, I synchronize the database every time I make changes. With this app, I can access the file directly from the FTP server, never storing the file on my phone and update it, as required.

Additionally, the password is never copied to the clipboard as is done with so many other password managers. Instead, you use the KP2A keyboard to quickly enter the login information. This is a fantastic solution for the security conscious!
