Hush Communications has introduced an online service for secure personal storage based on encryption technology.

Called HushDrive, the service is delivered through online storage services firm Xdrive and provides a facility that enables users to securely upload, download, and access their files from anywhere, at anytime using Internet-ready devices.

Firms such as FreeDrive, which generates revenues from advertising, offer similar services without charging users; HushDrive differentiates itself by offering a more secure service featuring strong encryption. Up to 25MB in data, protected by Hush's 2048-bit maximum strength encryption, can be stored online with HushDrive.

Xdrive has added a managed PKI component to its storage offering using the Hush Software Developers Kit (SDK). The SDK allows developers to link front end applications with secure backend delivery and, more importantly, provides a low-cost outsourcing option for key pair management services.

Premium HushMail users, pay $2.49 per month for 25MB for secure storage while other users will be charged $2.99 per month to use HushDrive. A set up fee of $19.99 has been waived for an introductory period, which will run until the end of the month.

A business offering of the service, which features the ability to share data between trusted users, is in development. ®
