Boxcryptor beta now available for Mac, supports Yosemite, iCloud Drive
Cloud storage encryption software, Boxcryptor, has released two new OS X beta versions. Boxcryptor protects users' files that are in the cloud, applicable to Dropbox, Google Drive, Microsoft SkyDrive, and more.

For both Boxcryptor and Boxcryptor Classic for OS X, OSXFUSE is no longer required to run the software. Boxcryptor is available in three pricing options, ranging from free to an unlimited business version for $95 per year.
