BeInSync is an Israeli-based provider of an all-in-one solution that allows users to backup, synchronize, share and access their data online. It was acquired by Phoenix Technologies in March 2008 for $25 million.
Simply install BeInSync on each of the computers you would like to synchronize and specify what you'd like to synchronize - your desktop, your My Documents folder, emails, contacts, favorites and more. From now on, whenever you create, modify or delete any of these items, these changes will automatically be reflected on your other PCs as well. This way, you can keep on working from anywhere without ever again having to be concerned about the whereabouts of your data.
One may also use BeInSync's secure Web access to access your remote files or view contents of shared folders instantly from any computer or location, without first installing BeInSync on this computer.
Finally, BeInSync extends data synchronization to allow you to securely share any amount of data with colleagues, partners, customers and friends. Simply invite one or more people to a shared folder. An email message will be sent with a link to that shared folder which resides on your own computer. The invitees will be able to view it from any Web browser instantly and securely, or they may install BeInSync as well and keep the shared files in sync automatically on their computer. This way you can work simultaneously on this shared folder with the same ease as working on your local files.
