If the company you work for doesn't understand how encryption works,
then they have far greater problems than syncing data files. It is
trivial to ensure that your data is only accessible by you, regardless
of where it is store.
There is also Bit torrent sync (renamed, but I forget the name) which
does not involved other servers.
