Syncdocs Aims to NSA-Proof Google Drive
Syncdocs is a new app which automatically secures Google Drive files. Syncdocs securely encrypts files before uploading them to Google Drive, so no unencrypted data ever leaves your computer.
Sydney (I-Newswire) September 6, 2013 - Many of us have emails, documents or photos that we don't want shared with the entire world. However, almost everyone these days is storing and sharing data in the cloud, be it Google Drive, Facebook or Dropbox. Corporations and health-care providers need to be especially careful. Syncdocs secures cloud data, ensuring only authorized users can get access.
A new version of Syncdocs has just been released which automatically secures Google Drive files. Syncdocs securely encrypts files before uploading them to Google Drive. This means that no unencrypted data ever leaves the desktop. Files are securely encrypted, and only authorized people have the key.
Files and folders are securely protected in the cloud with military-strength AES256 encryption. This is an important criteria for showing due diligence in protecting corporate or customer data stored in the cloud. For healthcare professionals encryption is also an essential for HIPAA compliance for storing patient records. The recent news about the NSA spying program having access to online data has made encryption an essential tool.
Encrypted files can easily be shared with others who have permission, which can be revoked at any time. Online storage can also be partitioned into secure, private and public sections, with different encryption settings on each. Encryption keys can be safely backed up, too.
This means that the NSA, hackers, business competitors, disgruntled employees and even crazy boyfriends or girlfriends won't be be able to see into users' most private files.
"Since Google holds the keys to their encryption solution it does not provide true protection, as they still have full access to your data" says customer Frederick Lowe, CIO of Oxito Health Solutions
"With Syncdocs we own the keys. Our files are encrypted before they are sent to Google Drive by Syncdocs."
Syncdocs also offers many other enhancements to Google Drive, chiefly:
* Syncdocs can sync multiple accounts concurrently, which is especially useful for users with separate home and work accounts.
* Syncdocs can sync folders from anywhere on a PC or network, not just the single folder dictated by Google
* Syncdocs can easily be deployed in the enterprise with fully automated, scripted installations
For those interested in cloud encryption, or simply wanting to improve Google Drive, can grab a free copy of Syncdocs from syncdocs.com
