The security offered by IDriveSync will appeal to users who have concerns about services like Dropbox, which has suffered from well-publicized security pitfalls. And IDriveSync's offering is more complete than what you get from Boxcryptor.

IDriveSync offers both storage and security in one, and it does so with an added level of security that its rivals don't offer.
