You Can Finally Have Your Own Private Cloud encryption makes cloud safe for everyone
CHICAGO, Feb. 6, 2013 /PRNewswire-iReach/ -- In order to take advantage of the benefits of cloud computing technology most people find that they must necessarily compromise their privacy. Using products like Gmail, Google Drive, Dropbox or even iTunes means that your personal data is exposed to others. Once that information has been revealed, you have absolutely no control over how it's stored, how it's used, or who it's shared with. This is not a compromise that everyone is willing to make.
Conformal Systems, a company based out of Chicago, Illinois, has developed Cyphertite, an online backup solution, to address these privacy concerns. Cyphertite uses the strongest cryptographic protocols available to encrypt data on the user's computer. Because the data is encrypted before it ever leaves the computer, and the user is the only person who ever has the key, the user is the only person who can ever access the unencrypted data. Multiple copies of the data sits safely encrypted in custom-made servers in a secured data center.
With recent security breaches at cloud storage providers like Dropbox and Mega, people are becoming more aware of the risks of trusting others with their data. The growth in popularity of data privacy advocacy groups like the Electronic Frontier Foundatio and CryptoParty are further evidence of this growing awareness.
"When you have a safe deposit box you don't give the bank the key. Why would you treat your valuable data differently than your valuable physical assets?" Asked Daniel Tobon, a Conformal Systems team member. "Your private data is important. You should control who has access to it."
Conformal Systems is an open source software engineering firm focused on privacy and security oriented solutions.
