We have talked about BitTorrent Sync in the past. This is a feature that launched to the public last year and allows users to save and access data on a storage device in the home over the web. BitTorrent Sync has now gained support for NAS devices.

The first NAS maker that is offering a BitTorrent Sync app for their storage devices is Netgear. The company has an app available right now for several of its home, business, and enterprise NAS units. BitTorrent says that Sync support will make it easy for users to create a simple path between their NAS and desktop or mobile devices.

Sync eliminates the need for users to go through complex setups for remotely accessing data like opening ports on the router, setting up VPNs, managing security settings, or making user names and passwords. Despite not needing to do any of that, access to the NAS devices claims to be safe and secure.

BitTorrent wrote in a blog post, "NetGear is our first partner to launch a native BitTorrent Sync app, which can be accessed from the ReadyNAS Add Ons page today. Any of NetGear's home and business products running OS6 will support BitTorrent Sync, including the home network series ReadyNAS 102 and ReadyNAS 104; the business desktop series ReadyNAS 312, ReadyNAS 314, ReadyNAS 316, ReadyNAS 516, and ReadyNAS 716X; as well as the SMB and enterprise-class friendly Business Rackmount Storage series ReadyNAS 2120, ReadyNAS 3220, and ReadyNAS 4220."
