Wuala is a great way to get secure online storage. Users can automatically backup, sync, store, share, and access files online. Wuala has a unique security concept: unlike other online storage services all files are encrypted directly on the user’s computer, and the password is never transmitted. No one unauthorised - not even Wuala - can access the user’s files. Wuala is based on novel technology that was researched at ETH Zurich (Swiss Federal Institute of Technology) in Switzerland.

Wuala is developed and run by LaCie AG in Zurich. Wuala joined LaCie, a French provider of external storage devices, in 2009 to work on the future of cloud storage.
