I don’t quite get what you’re looking for here. You want a secure connection, but you don’t want WD servers to provide you with a secure connection?
From the little amount of time I’ve spent with this drive, I can already see how their setup is done with ease-of-use in mind. I don’t have to worry about my ISP changing my IP address, I don’t have to worry about managing FTP servers, or port forwarding, or any of that **bleep**. I plug the drive in, log into my mycloud.com account remotely, and I have secure access. I don’t care that the data is going through the WD servers to provide security, so long as it’s secure. What I care about is having NAS access at home, and cloud access away without any of the headaches of remote accessing the drive. That’s exactly what the mycloud drive does for me.
