nCryptedCloud does not provide storage. Rather, it adds a layer of encryption between the user and the storage provider. The file is encrypted on the local computer and then synched into the storage provider as usual. It provides a sophisticated key management scheme based, essentially, on public key encryption. However, the user never interacts with the underlying mechanism directly so there is nothing to complicate - and, thus deter - its use.
We liked this service for its simplicity from the user perspective, its reasonable cost and the availability of a free version. This is especially useful for the organisation that does not wish to develop its own secure cloud but realises that it is difficult to control user access to cloud-based storage services. Thus, a safe way to deal with the problem is needed and this fits the need. We recommend that you try the free version and then consider the commercial version with its additional bells and whistles. Prices are US-based, thus indicative only.
