Already available for Android™ and Windows®, Laplink Sync™ is the most innovative synchronization technology for any mobile platform, allowing you to directly connect your devices and keep your files, folders, photos, and videos up to date between multiple devices, regardless of operating system. Now available for iOS™ in the Apple App Store℠, it doesn’t matter if you use a Windows PC at home and an iPhone on the go. With just a few clicks, you can instantly synchronize any devices.
October is National Cyber Security Month and we at Laplink want to make sure you’re protected. According to research done by the National Cyber Security Alliance, 80% of adults use the internet, 49% of them accessing it from their smartphones. With the influx of smartphones, tablets, and other mobile devices, it’s never been easier to be connected. But with an increase in internet access comes an increase in security risk.
Most smartphone users have never backed up their mobile devices, and a full 64% have never installed security software or apps to keep their mobile devices more secure from malware and viruses. Nearly half of all targeted cyber attacks are directed at companies with less than 500 employees, and weak mobile security can be a major point of entry. So how do you stay protected on the go?
The US-China Economic and Security Review Commission released a report today titled “Red Cloud Rising: Cloud Computing in China.” This report takes a look at China’s growing support for cloud services and the implications that may lead to for US companies and consumers.
According to the report, “the Chinese government plans to make more than $1 billion available over the next few years to drive cloud computing development.” Cloud computing companies around the US are exploring the possibility of expanding overseas, but what does that mean for cloud users?
Recent analysis compared Laplink Sync to a variety of competitors. Although Laplink Sync™ was released just one month ago, it has already proven to beat out competitors with superior peer-to-peer connectivity options, more secure synchronization, enhanced features (like easy conflict resolution), and the most comprehensive, free customer support available.
As a peer-to-peer synchronization product, Laplink Sync offers a safer sync process than cloud-only solutions. Where cloud-based options are vulnerable to server availability and forces you to rely on Internet connectivity, Laplink Sync gives you the option to connect their devices directly. This keeps your information more secure and greatly reduces the risk of losing your data.
Laplink has also partnered with Intel to give even more connectivity options to users like you. By integrating with Intel’s Common Connectivity Framework, something no other sync product does, you are able to connect and sync your music, photos, and other files with Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, and more.
You’re probably multi-tasking while you read this blog. Whether you’re reading on your computer, tablet, or smartphone, chances are you’re checking one of your other devices for an email, project update, text, or Facebook notification. The reason for this, according to a study done by Google, is that we’re rapidly becoming a world chock full of multi-screeners.
What exactly is a multi-screener? A multi-screener is someone who owns and is using more than one device at the same time. Do you play games on your tablet while you watch TV? You’re a multi-screener. Do you check your phone for texts while working on a project on your PC? You’re a multi-screener.
According to the study, 90% of all our media interactions are screen-based. These interactions are divided primarily between four different types of screens: smartphone, tablet, PC or laptop, and TV. While the study shows that each device has its own personal benefit (smartphone for communication, PC or laptop for work, TV and tablet for entertainment), it also shows that 90% of consumers use multiple devices sequentially to accomplish something over time. Maybe you take a cool photo on your smartphone and transfer it over to your tablet for some editing. When you’re done, you transfer it over to your PC to print it off on professional, glossy paper.
In an age when people rely on technology more than ever, everyone has had disaster strike at an inopportune moment.
Server not found.
We’re experiencing technical difficulties.
Your heart sinks as a connectivity issue affects your social life or even worse, your job.
Technology is meant to make our lives easier. While cloud computing services are convenient for people on the go, its reliance on internet connectivity leaves users vulnerable. Whether it’s an unexpected natural disaster, a small electrical storm, or a simple server error, the smallest hiccup can leave users unable to access their files.
So, what’s a tech geek to do? You have your smartphone, tablet, PC, and laptop, but how can you sync your files without having to worry about the next big server crash?
Lifehacker Article Expounds on Syncing Options: We Say, “Look to PCsync.”
With Google Drive being released, there has been a lot of discussion about online storage programs and which ones better allow for syncing files. Is Google going to oust Dropbox out of the cloud-based storage game? Do we have a David v.s. Goliath case on our hands or are these two companies evenly matched?
Intense online-storage battles aside, we’re more interested in how we can help end-users sync their data locally. There are consumers that want to bypass using other companies’ servers or the cloud to store and sync their sensitive data.
The fine folks over at Lifehacker put up an article detailing the different options for syncing files between computers while avoiding storing data online. If someone wants to sync their data without having to upload personal information to the cloud, what can they do? With more and more people today owning multiple PCs and smart devices, the issue of keeping data up-to-date amongst all of them is more relevant than ever.
