The online interface is easy to use and has multiple security options to help keep your files secure. Also, file encryption is available to help keep your files even more secure.
The open-source file sync software that is part of ownCloud allows you to sync files with your desktop, laptop, or mobile device. OwnCloud has optional sync capability which allows users to select the files that they want to sync to their computer and still see the files that are not synced.
