On March 8th, 2012 I submitted a blog titled “Cloud storage data risks and encryption” at Naked Security pointing out the risks associated with using cloud storage providers such as Dropbox. To be clear, I’m not suggesting to move away from such services, but to augment them with a layer of encryption which you can control. That is exactly how I use them.
For example using SafeGuard PrivateCrypto for standalone free file based encryption use or SafeGuard Encryption for Cloud Storage if you are looking for enterprise class software such as SafeGuard Enterprise.
I’m excited for mid-2012 when the smartphone encrypted file readers will be available. Definitely a sweet integration point there.
I hope you enjoy the blog article and please comment either here at DSPN or Naked Security. If you make a reasonable comment which invokes the need for me to reply, I will make every attempt to engage you in a conversation.
Until next time, keep it safe and secure online.
