Ultimately, a number of Dropbox users went looking for a service they believed to be more secure. BitDefender thinks their new cloud sync app Safebox might be just the thing. It’s a reasonable enough assumption considering BitDefender is one of the top security software developers in the world.

Security and privacy concerns aside, Safebox doesn’t soem of the advanced features that Dropbox does. Bandwidth controls are very limited, for example. You can either let Safebox run full blast or “limit bandwidth,” but there’s no slider or text box to let you set your upload and download speeds. There’s also no pause control, and no LAN sync option — a killer feature if you’re using Dropbox on a home or office network.

There’s also no subfolder synchronization control (selective sync on Dropbox). If you drag your My Pictures folder in, for example, you can’t drill down and exclude your Furries or Unicorn subfolders. Platform support is also fairly limited right now, with only Windows and Android clients available. iOS apps are on the way, but no mention is made of Mac or Linux.
