We are happy to announce Mountain Duck 2 – featuring support for client-side encrypted Cryptomator interoperable vaults – foolproof client-side encryption for cloud storage mounted on your desktop.
Encryption for data at rest prevents unauthorized access regardless of the server or cloud storage infrastructure. You can create secure vaults on any server or cloud storage available through the broad protocol support in Mountain Duck – including Amazon S3, Backblaze B2, Microsoft Azure, Google Drive, Dropbox and OneDrive or any OpenStack Swift, WebDAV or FTP interoperable hosting solution. Additionally you can also connect to your local harddisk and browse Cryptomator Vaults you want to save on your computer.
Starting to secure your data is as easy as creating a new Cryptomator vault by selecting New Encrypted Vault in the context menu and providing a passphrase. Uploads and downloads are transparently encrypted and decrypted respectively with no change in your usual workflow required. You can have encrypted vaults and non-encrypted folders reside along on your storage location.
Version 2 introduces an Info panel for advanced options on files accessible from the context menu in Finder on macOS and File Explorer on Windows in addition to the context menus to copy URLs.

Mountain Duck 1.9 (free upgrade) now supports mounting Backblaze B2 as a disk on your desktop on both Mac & Windows.
This version brings significant memory savings on macOS. Refer to the full changelog. Important: Due to a bug in version 1.7.1–1.8.2 you will have to manually update to the latest version by downloading the latest version from mountainduck.io.
Both Cyberduck and Mountain Duck have support for hubiC (OVH), a low priced OpenStack Swift storage service. We have made available a connection profile that uses OAuth 2 for authentication to connect.
Open files from any Dropbox account without synchronising everything to your local hard disk. Now supported in Cyberduck and Mountain Duck. Refer to our documentation for more information.
Mountain Duck now ships with a Finder Extension for Mac and a File Explorer Extension on Windows. This allows us to have a context menu in the file explorer. Currently it includes options to copy URLs of files selected on the mounted remove volume and open a Terminal session to the selected working directory when connected through SSH.
Version 1.5 now allows to open and save Microsoft Office documents from remote volumes mounted with Mountain Duck.
Mountain Duck gained the ability to mount remote volumes as read-only and forbids writes to the remote server on the operating system level. This will pose most useful to users mounting productive environments and will want to make sure nothing is written to the server but files are only readable.
Support for Google Drive is coming back in version 5 of Cyberduck. Access your files stored on Google Drive without synching to your desktop. You can give it a try in the latest snapshot build.
Update: Support for Google Drive is now also available in Mountain Duck with version 1.4.
