pCloud Description

pCloud, the Swiss-based cloud storage provider, was founded in 2013. Since then, the company has grown to serve over 9 million users across the globe for only 6 years and credits this growth to their service’s flexibility, intuitive user experience, and reliability.

pCloud is very secure and fast digital asset management and cloud storage providing access to all your digital assets - video, audio, documents, images and more- anytime on any device. You can share with your clients and team members around the world and give them controlled access and permissions to your digital content.

pCloud latest feature is called Branded download links. A Download link is the easiest way to share a single file, or a bunch of files and folders with someone and give people download permissions to the content. An empty download link is not enough to make a strong impression to your audience. This is why we created Branded links.

When you turn on Branding, you can leave your Brand's footprint.

When people click on your Branded link, they will be sent to a page which can have your unique signature- you can add your Brand's logo, or an album cover for example. You can have your Headline which defines the content you are sharing and description- You can add your contact information, and make it your business card or you can tell your brand's story in short.

pCloud has a user-friendly interface that clearly shows where everything is located and what it does. The software is available for multiple platforms – Mac, Windows, Linux, iOS and Android devices.

By installing pCloud on your computer (through its desktop application pCloud Drive), the app creates a secure virtual drive which expands your local storage space without taking any space on your local device. Every change you make in your pCloud can be seen immediately on your computer, phone or tablet.

pCloud Crypto is the highest level of security for your files. You could save your sensitive information, and your private documents in the cloud, and to have them on any device. Nobody has access to these files, including the administrators of pCloud. With client-side encryption, your files are encrypted locally on your computer and only the encrypted information is uploaded in the cloud. The files never leave your device without the encryption

We all know how important it is to not only store your data on a secure platform but to also regularly back it up. Unfortunately, it can be difficult to find software that fits your exact needs, whether you’re an individual user or a business. 

Good news! pCloud is a digital asset management system that is perfect for all kinds of users. It provides for seamless file backup, efficient data storage, effortless collaboration all on a lightweight cloud-based platform which will take up barely any space on your system. 

Data Storage is a risky business. Let’s face it! There is the ever-present risk of hackers breaking into your system and stealing confidential information. No company, regardless of its size or stature, is safe. Data breaches are becoming increasingly common.

What you need to secure your company’s data is a robust, super-secure digital asset management system that can stand its own when it comes to cybercriminals. Moreover, such a system should be lightweight, intuitive and, above all, cloud-based so that your employees can have the data they need at their fingertips.

The system described above is none other than ‘pCloud.’

pCloud is a cloud-based digital asset management platform that allows you to store, secure and share all your digital content – documents, videos, audio, and more – effortlessly. It is meant for both individuals and businesses. So, whether you manage a company or need a data storage platform for your freelance work, pCloud has covered you.

What sets pCloud apart?

Many new data storage and management solutions crop up with each passing day. But what makes pCloud different?

  • Real-time Synchronicity

pCloud has a user-friendly interface that allows users to locate files quickly. Additionally, it also provides real-time synchronicity, i.e., any changes made to any data are immediately visible across every device and to every user.

  • Robust Security

The need for exceptional security is obvious in such a platform, but pCloud goes above and beyond the basics. It provides an additional layer of file protection called ‘Crypto,’ which is meant for sensitive files. The files are encrypted locally on the user’s system and then uploaded onto the cloud, which means that no one, not even pCloud administrators, can decrypt the data. 100% security and privacy are guaranteed with pCloud.

  • Linux Support

pCloud is one of the few cloud storage providers which support Linux. Even mega-popular solutions like Dropbox provide selective or limited Linux support at best. pCloud is a boon for Linux users.

Salient Features of pCloud Digital Asset Management PlatformpCloud Family1. File Management

Of course, the main functionality of a data storage solution is file management. What’s excellent about pCloud is that it offers all the benefits of cloud storage at a speed that’s 5x that of its competitors. Additionally, its desktop app acts as a virtual HDD, which allows users to access and work with content in the cloud without using any local space.

pCloud-web interface

Access is easy, no matter which device you use – desktop, mobile or tablet. Files are easy to manage, with quick search and filter options
pCloud has no size and speed restrictions; you can upload files of any size at the maximum speed possible.
As for storage limitations, there are none. You can upload any file, even if they are gigantic HD videos. Uploading and downloading are solely dependent on your internet speed.

2. File Sharing

pCloud makes file sharing and collaboration with other users seamless, whether or not they use pCloud. You can invite users to share folders and set permissions to View or Edit. Suspend or modify the permission any time you want. If you share a file with a public audience, you can generate a download link that anyone can access. Similarly, you can create upload links that allow people to upload documents directly to your pCloud. The Public Folder on this platform enables you to generate upload and download links that can be shared with anyone.

Make file sharing simultaneously effortless and secure with pCloud.

pCloud for iOS3. Branded links

What are Branded links?

You can easily share a single file or a bunch of files and folders with someone through a Download link and also give people download permissions to the content.

A simple link is not enough to make a strong impression on your audience. That is why we created Branded links.

When you turn on Branding, you can leave your Brand’s footprint.pCloud-Branded Download link

When people click on your Branded link, they will be sent to a page with your unique signature- you can add your Brand’s logo or an album cover, for example. You can have your Headline, which defines the content you are sharing, and its description- You can even make a business card by adding your contact details, or you can tell your brand’s story in short.

4. Encryption + Security

As mentioned before, it makes sure to provide top-of-the-class security. It uses TLS/SSL encryption. Safety is the priority at pCloud, so your files are stored on at least three server locations at any point. If you need an additional layer of security, you can subscribe to pCloud Crypto. It provides client-side encryption, which means that no one except you will have the keys to the files stored in the cloud. These files never leave your device without encryption.

Fun fact: pCloud challenged hackers from all over the world (including those from MIT, Berkeley, etc.) to break into pCloud Crypto, and they failed. You can rest assured that pCloud’s security layers are unbreakable.


The service uses AES 256-bit file and folder encryption, an advanced, reliable algorithm that remains a standard used by many governments and organizations. This algorithm is also used in many cloud solutions like Dropbox, Google One or iCloud.

Consumers also benefit from private key encryption in 4096-bit RSA. These allow user authentication and decryption of secure data. As a reminder, the RSA 4096-bit standard is beyond the recommendations of the ANSSI (National Agency for the Security of Information Systems) regarding data protection.

The company also announces a backup of the files on at least three different servers to ensure their integrity in case of failure.

To go further, pCloud offers the pCloud Crypto tool available in a 14-day free trial, by subscription (5 € monthly or 48 € annual) or a lifetime purchase- 125 €. This feature built into mobile and desktop applications makes your data even safer. Through an additional layer of security to the data with client-side encryption, the keys are only available to the user and are not uploaded or stored on servers. Even pCloud, a service provider, cannot view your files.

The company even had fun with a community challenge that involved hacking Crypto’s encryption key for a reward of 100,000$. After six months and 2860 participants, no one was able to cut their service.

  • 2-factor authentication

Two-factor authentication, also referred to as two-step verification, is a method of confirming a user’s identity by asking password along with providing some additional information when he logs into pCloud. When someone learns your password, the two-factor authentication restricts them from accessing your pCloud account.

5. Synchronization + Backup

Businesses and individual users must ensure that their files are always backed up in case a certain device goes missing. With pCloud, you can synchronize instantly between the storage platform and multiple devices. Simply set the required parameters for data syncing, and pCloud Drive will synchronize automatically.

Backup is seamless: turn on the Automatic Upload feature, and your mobile data will be backed up to the cloud instantly from then on. Similarly, pCloud Drive backs up data from the folders you’ve selected on your PC. You won't lose your data if something happens to your device. It is safely backed up with pCloud, without you having to pay anything extra.

6. Integrations

Lastly, pCloud provides numerous integrations, which is crucial for a good digital asset management system today. First off, there are social integrations with apps like Facebook and Instagram. So you can back up photos with the click of a button. You can have custom integrations with the platform’s API offerings, and it is also developing various plugins for other platforms! You can even back up your WordPress website, including all its media and files, with pCloud.
Photographers, here’s your catch!
You can now upload your latest image edits directly to pCloud and share them instantly with the export plugin for Lightroom. This is done with the help of Lightroom’s export interface.
pCloud’s Adobe Lightroom plugin is available for Windows as well as MacOS.

7. Embedded Music Player

Unlike other cloud providers, pCloud offers an embedded Audio Player that can play your favorite songs as soon as you upload them on its platform. You can create your playlists or play songs in Shuffle or Repeat mode.

pCloud-Music player

No matter where you store these songs, it automatically saves them in the Audio Section. There are two ways of uploading the audio files: either use the Upload section or drag and drop it.

You can even sync the audio contents from your smartphone to the web via pCloud Sync.

Thus, you can have fun with the Audio Player while editing.

Value for Money!

I've been looking for an alternative to Dropbox, because it's too expensive for me. I've found that Pcloud offers some pretty good features, it's easy to use, the mobile apps are nice. The pricing plans are reasonable as well. Overall, I think it's a great solution for people who are looking for alternatives to the big guys.
