Resilio Sync (formerly BitTorrent Sync) is a proprietary peer-to-peer file synchronization tool available for Windows, Mac, Linux, Android, iOS, Windows Phone, Amazon Kindle Fire and BSD. It can sync files between devices on a local network, or between remote devices over the Internet via a modified version of the BitTorrent protocol.

FREEAccess Files On The Go Sync photos, videos, music, PDFs, docs or any other file types to/from your mobile phone or tablet. Using ‘Selective Sync’, you can choose to sync only the files you need, whenever you need them.
PROUse on Any Device Keep folders synced between multiple platforms and operating systems. Sync is available for OS X, Windows, Linux, iOS, Android, all major NAS devices, and more.
PROAdd Folders to All Your Devices Automatically Syncthing doesn’t need IP addresses or advanced configuration: it just works, over LAN and over the Internet. Every machine is identified by an ID. Give your ID to your friends, share a folder and watch: UPnP will do if you don’t want to port forward or you don’t know how.
PROMake Sure Sensitive Data Stays In Your Control Change access permissions at any time using ‘Advanced Folders’. Assign ownership to another user, revoke access, or change read and write permissions on the fly.
PROSync Only The Files You Need Using ‘Selective Sync’ feature, Sync will create placeholder files in your file-system that can be searched locally. Click to download only the files that you need, when you need them, without having to replicate entire folders on every device.
PROControl Bandwidth Usage Every node is identified by a strong cryptographic certificate. Only nodes you have explicitly allowed can connect to your cluster.
